Glycerol derivatives are a class of compounds, which are easy and inexpensive to produce with potent anti-malarial activities against blood stages of Plasmodium falciparum in vitro. In the present study, one of these compounds, termed 1t, which had the lowest IC(50) values, was assessed in a murine malarial model. Nuclear magnetic resonance imaging and Balb/c mice infected with Plasmodium berghei ANKA strain were treated in a 4-day suppressive test. Mice received a once-daily intraperitoneal administration of 50 mg/Kg of the drug for 4 days. Although no parasitaemia clearance was reached, a slower parasite proliferation and a slightly longer survival time compared with the placebo group were observed.
