Anti-Parasitic Drug Discovery in Epigenetics (A-PARADDISE)

Start date: Feb 1, 2014, End date: Jan 31, 2017,

This proposal builds on the proven methodology developed in the SEtTReND FP7 project to develop inhibitors of schistosome HME as lead compounds for new drugs. We will employ a target-based strategy for the development of novel drug leads against schistosomiasis, leishmaniasis, Chagas disease and malaria by targeting histone modifying enzymes (HME), in particular those involved in acetylation/deace ...

Schistosoma Epigenetics - Targets, Regulation, New Drugs (SEtTReND)

Start date: Jan 1, 2010, End date: Dec 31, 2012,

We propose to develop novel drug leads for the therapy of the major human parasitic disease, schistosomiasis, using a holistic approach that will enable us to progress from the cloned target protein to the lead compound and from epigenetic inhibitors to crucial targets. For this, we have chosen to target the histone modifying enzymes (HME); histone deacetylases (HDAC), histone acetyltransferases ( ...
