What is Artesunate 50mg Tablet?

artesunate is a water-soluble hemisuccinate derivative of artemisinin. It is unstable in neutral solution and the injectable formulation must be prepared immediately before use in 5% (w/v) sodium bicarbonate solution to produce the salt sodium artesunate. After parenteral administration, it is rapidly hydrolysed to the active metabolite dihydroartemisinin. The oral formulation is probably hydrolysed completely before entering the systemic circulation.

artesunate 50mg toxicity has been reported to clear fever in patients with severe falciparum malaria 16-25 hours after parenteral administration
