Aim of the study: A total of 27 ethanolic plant extracts from 27 species were screened for leishmanicidal activity in vitro against Leishmania amazonensis. Most of the selected species (19) are traditionally used by the Chayahuitas, an Amazonian Peruvian ethnic group, to treat skin affections and/or leishmaniasis.

The authors are grateful to Candy Ruiz from LID-UPCH, for technical assistance in plants extractions.
