Resumen

ALVAREZ RODRIGUEZ, Ángel L  y  DEL BARRIO ALONSO, Gloria. Antiviral properties of plants of the genus Phyllanthus  . Rev Cubana Farm [online]. 2008, vol.42, n.1. ISSN 0034-7515.

The genus Phyllanthus (family Euphorbiaceae) groups more than 500 species of plants distributed in 11 subgenera. The infusions from these species have been used for thousands of years in folk medicine of many countries to treat diseases of possible viral cause. Several research groups have proposed themselves to find the scientific reasons for the millenary use of these plants, and have got to the bottom of the foundations of the activity of these infusions. This paper presents most of the scientific evidence available in literature on the inhibitory activity of the extracts from plants of this genus on the in vivo or in vitro multiplication of mainly sexually transmitted viruses, as hepatitis B virus, human immunodeficiency virus, and herpes simplex virus

Palabras clave : Phyllanthus; etnobotany; antiviral; medicinal plants.
