Naturalplants: There are many plants whose extracts showanti-dengue property. Carica papaya isa very common plant whose leaf extract is used in this disease.

It was used ina mid-age patient where it was found that 5 days treatment of the extract ledto increase in WBC as well as platelet count. Other plants extracts which havesignificant role in the treatment of dengue are listed in the table below.Table 1 List of plants whose extracts havebeen used in dengue.

Apart from that Azadiracta indica has also shown significant role in vivo in inhibiting the replication ofDENV-2.  Naturalchemical moieties against dengue:There are many naturalcompounds which have shown significant activity against dengue. They belong todifferent chemical classes like sulfated polysaccharides, flavonoids, quercetin,natural chalcone compounds etc. Here are some of the active anti-dengue naturalcompounds:SARof some important compounds against NS2b-NS3:SARof methionine–proline anilides:Two methionine–proline anilides have been found toinhibit NS2b-NS3efficiently.

Further if methionine is replaced byphenylalanine, the activity remains only upto 25% but it has higher inhibitoryconcentration (200 µM).

SARof tetrapeptide aldehyde inhibitors:They started with the following aldehyde derivative(Ki =5.8 µM) to determinethe pharmacophoric features of the NS3 active site.Figure 1 A tetrapetide aldehyde derivativeTable 3 Results from different scans (alanine, phenylalanine,lysine, and proline, D- and N-Me amino acids) and varying the inhibitor Sr. No. Aldehyde inhibitors Ki (µM) 1 Bz-Nle-Lys-Arg-Arg-H 5.

Themost potent compound was obtained when P1 was replaced with (p-guanidinyl)Phe with Ki = 2.8 µM. When P2 and P3 were replacedwith proline a huge loss in activity was found which indicated that turngeometry was unfavourable in binding.            Replacement of P1 gave some active compound but the Ki is not that much good.

Themost effective replacement at P1 was fount to be Trp which gave compound with  Ki=7.5µM.Table 4 Effect of modifications in the P1 position of thetetrapeptide P1 Ki (µM) Phe 15.9 Phg 33.0 homoPhe >500 (p-Cl)Phe 138.0 (p-CN)Phe 18.6 (p-Me)Phe 6.0 (p-Ph)Phe 11.6 Trp 7.5  Phe alone at P1 gave lesserpotent compound as compared to the compound which was obtained by replacing P1with -(p-guanidinyl)Phe.
