Innovators from CRITESS and PI-RAM have published two scientific articles on the properties of a number of medicinal plants.

The two articles reveal the results of ethnopharmacological research carried out in the Congo Basin, covering both Congo and the Democratic Republic of Congo.
These investigations, conducted by projects CRITESS and PI-RAM (supported by the PDTIE) have enabled a number of innovators to identify and select plants with larvicidal, repellent and antimicrobial properties, which are now being incorporated into their respective projects.
