Artemisinin and Cancer

The Department of Bioengineering and University of Washington do not advocate the use of artemisinin to treat cancer.

The US Food and Drug Administration does not currently approve the use of artemisinin for the treatment of any disease.

Research on artemisinin and cancer is still in very early stages. Human use of artemisinin should be considered experimental and taking artemisinin or any other drug should be approached with extreme caution and responsibility. Always consult with your physician before beginning any new therapy or treatment.

Please contact UW Bioengineering Research Professor Narendra Singh for further information.
