Abstract

In the last few decades, Hibiscus sabdariffa L. (Malvaceae; H. sabdariffa) has gained much attention in research field because of its potentially useful bioactivity as well as a great safety and tolerability. For decades, microbial, parasitic and cancer diseases remain a serious threat to human health and animals as well. To treat such diseases, a search for new sources such as plants that provide various bioactive compounds useful in the treatment of several physiological conditions is urgently needed, since most of the drugs currently used in the therapy have several undesirable side effects, toxicity, and drug resistance. In this paper, we aim to present an updated overview of in vitro and in vivo studies that show the significant therapeutic properties of the crude extracts and phytochemicals derived from H. sabdariffa as antimicrobial, antiparasitic, and anticancer agents. The future directions of the use of H. sabdariffa in clinical trials will be discussed.Key words: Hibiscus sabdariffa L. antimicrobial agents cancer preventive agents antiparasitic drugs natural products.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 28 April 2016.
All research outputs
#3,941,960
of 7,621,460 outputs
Outputs from Ceská a Slovenská farmacie casopis Ceské farmaceutické spolecnosti a Slovenské farmaceutické spolecnosti
#5
of 16 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#144,843
of 266,740 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Ceská a Slovenská farmacie casopis Ceské farmaceutické spolecnosti a Slovenské farmaceutické spolecnosti
#1
of 1 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 7,621,460 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 28th percentile – i.e., 28% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 16 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 1.8. This one scored the same or higher as 11 of them.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 266,740 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 35th percentile – i.e., 35% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 1 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has scored higher than all of them
