The papaya plant is classified as a lactiferous plant as it contains specialized cells that produce latex. These cells are present in almost all of the plant tissue. The latex producing cells, called lactifers, in papaya are notable as the plant’s latex is a rich source of cysteine endopeptidases. These are papain, chymopapain, glycyl endopeptidase and caricain. Papaya leaves also contain the alkaloid carpaine and the glucoside called carposide. These are known for antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and immunomodulatory effects.
Carica papaya leaf extract has attracted significant attention as a potential dengue treatment as there is currently no specific therapy for the illness which also has a high mortality rate. One of the problems with dengue infection is the drop in platelet count and the associated complications. Studies have found that platelet count starts to rise steadily with papaya leaf extract supplementation from day 3. Many studies have also linked this increase in platelet count to improved treatment outcomes. Additionally, papaya leaf extract has also been shown to significantly improve RBC count. Organic compounds in carica papaya leaf extract (1-beta-D-ribofuranosyl -3-ethynyl-[1,2,4]triazole and 1-beta-Dribofuranosyl-4-ethynyl imidazole)have been found to inhibit dengue virus serotype 2 replication.
While all of these plant compounds in papaya leaf can aid dengue treatment, the extract also offers other benefits. The biologically active compounds chymopapain and papain can treat a variety of digestive disorders. Researchers have found that carica papaya leaf extract can improve acidic pH conditions and increase protection against peptic ulcers. The plant extract may also offer anti-sickling and antibacterial benefits.
