They disrupt the conversion of a harmful substance called haem, a leftover from breaking down hemoglobin, into a safe pigment called hemozoin. Lumefantrine interrupts the process, while artemether generates powerful substances by interacting with haem iron. Together, they also hamper the parasite's ability to make DNA and proteins. This dynamic duo works better together, giving malaria a one-two punch for effective treatment.
