Nine Dengue Patients Observed Recovered With Papaya Leaf

A test of the effect of papaya leaf on nine patients with Dengue Fever was published in India last Spring:

“In the present study we found the therapeutic potential of papaya leaf extract (PLE) in curing dengue infection by increasing platelet and WBC counts respectively. Ultrasonographic findings, blood reports, statistical analysis and patient’s recovery from dengue infection further supported the culinary effect of papaya leaf extract (PLE) in dengue patients. The nontoxic nature of PLE also supports its use as natural herbal remedy for dengue infection. An earlier study categorized Carica papaya leaf as non toxic (LD50 >15g per Kg body weight) (Kardono et al., 2003).”
