[MMV e-alert] The Malaria Box | MMV

In a bid to catalyse malaria and neglected disease drug discovery, MMV and SCYNEXIS, Inc. have assembled a Malaria Box of 400 carefully selected commercially available compounds with antimalarial activity and will provide it to researchers at no cost.All 400 compounds in the Malaria Box have confirmed activity against the blood-stage of P. falciparum – the most deadly of the malaria parasites – and were selected by experienced medicinal chemists from an extensive screening of around four million compounds from the chemical libraries of St. Jude Childrens Research Hospital, Novartis and GlaxoSmithKline. The Malaria Box includes 200 drug-like compounds as starting points for oral drug discovery as well as 200 probe-like compounds representing the broadest cross-section of chemical diversity for use as biological tools.
