New Drugs for Neglected Diseases 2008-2012
PURPOSES:
Development of novel drugs to treat
neglected diseases such as African sleeping
sickness, Chagas disease and Leishmaniasis.
Coordination between related approaches of
molecular genetics, biochemistry, medicinal
chemistry, crystallography and bioinformatics and
complementation with industrial experience.
Identification of the drug targets essential to
the parasites but absent or different in the host,
using the established genomes of the parasites,
since inhibitors thereof hold promise as safe and
efficacious therapeutics.
To validate drug targets as tools in drug
discovery
processes
using
complementary
strategies
New Drugs for Neglected Diseases 2008-2012
STRATEGIES:
• i) high-throughput screening of natural product and other
compound libraries and
•
ii) in silico screening of virtual libraries to identify novel
leads;
•
iii) chemical synthesis and optimization of identified
leads; and
•
iv) structure-based inhibitor design based on established
structures or molecular models. The potential therapeutic
profile of novel compounds active in vitro will be worked
out by techniques of high prognostic value in respect to
drug safety. The most promising compounds will be
tested in established infection models for all the diseases
to choose the most attractive candidates for preclinical
and clinical development. The Action members will cover
all expertises required for the multidisciplinary early drug
discovery phase.

Short technical and scientific
missions
The aim of a Short-Term Scientific Mission (STSM)
is to contribute to the scientific objectives of the
Action.
These Missions (Exchange Visits) are aimed at
strengthening the existing network by allowing
scientists to go to an institution or laboratory in
another COST Country to foster collaboration, to
learn a new technique or to take measurements
using instruments and/or methods not available
in their own institution/laboratory. They are
particularly intended for young scientists.
