This study evaluated the use of twenty Thai plants on herpes simplex virus type 1. Such a virus can cause several life-threatening diseases.

The experiment began with the collection of the plants from both Mae Wong in Kamphaengphet and Chulalongkorn University in Bangkok. The leaves of each plant were extracted with either water and/or ethanol.

Female mice who were six weeks old were used for the experiment. Each mouse was infected with the virus, causing skin lesions. Using different plant extracts on the skin lesions of each mouse, researchers tested the effectiveness of each extract. The Moringa oleifera plant was one of the most effective of the twenty leaves, significantly reducing the mortality rate of the infected mice.
