P.  canescens leaves n-hexane fraction  has potential as alternative medicine for malaria .   To make P. canescens extract , leaves was macerated using EtOH (96%), then filtrate was evaporated using a rotary evaporator, then fractionated with n-hexane. The 25 healthy  M.musculus  weighing 20-40g each, infected with P.berghei, grouped into 5 ie group 1 (K-) was treated orally with aquades, group 2 (K +) was treated orally with 0.42 mg of Chloroquine, Group 3 (P1) Group 4 (P2), group 5 (P3) was treated orally with a P.  canescens leaves n-hexane fraction  each at a dose of 0.028 ,  0.056 and 0.084 g / kgBW. After 3 days of digestion for each treatment, the amount of erythrocytes was calculated under a microscope. : The giving of the with dose 0,028 g / kgBW able to inhibit paracetemia 33,49%,  0,056 g / kgBW able to  57.91% and  0,084 g / kgBW able to  61.69%   The conclusion is the P. canescens leaves n-hexane fraction  at a dose of 0.028 , 0.056 , and 0.084 g / kgBW orally wil be decreased the amount of paracetemia in M.musculus, and the higher the dose given the higher percent of the inhibition.
