New laboratory-synthesized molecule appears to fight malaria effectively

Publicado em 10 agosto 2018
A novel laboratory-synthesized molecule based in natural compounds found in marine gliding bacteria – known as marinoquinolines – is a strong candidate for the development of a new antimalarial drug. In tests, the molecule proved capable of killing even the strain that resists conventional antimalarials. The molecule displays low toxicity and high selectivity, acting only on the parasite and not on other cells of the host organism. The molecule was developed in Brazil at the Center for [...]
