Table 1 Body weight and relative organ weights of Plasmodium berghei-infected mice administered a combination of Ganoderma terpenoid extract and chloroquine for a period of 12 days

From: Ganoderma terpenoid extract exhibited anti-plasmodial activity by a mechanism involving reduction in erythrocyte and hepatic lipids in Plasmodium berghei infected mice
