Novel compounds for fighting against parasitic diseases

Parasites of the Trypanosomatidae family cause a number of serious human diseases. Researchers from Italy, Belgium, and Germany have published the identification of novel anti-parasitic compounds targeting an enzyme unique to the parasites. These compounds are promising for the development of drugs with fewer side-effects than current medical treatments. Modena/Brussels/Heidelberg. Trypanosomatid parasites cause diseases like…
