The idea is to design Potential Kinase inhibitors using Pharmacophore search, Docking, Semantic link association prediction, VROCS and fragment based approach to find novel molecules against Kinases.PASS Prediction


The Drug Development Process

Published by ndt228 on 2 May 2010 - 7:01pm



There may be members of this community who do not yet have direct experience of developing a new medicine from concept to pharmacy shelf.  Be assured, there is a lot more to it than "just" the synthesis of the API.  Why not take advantage of a Free ACS Webcast on May 6, 2010 Thurs 2:00-3:00 PM ET

XDR Tuberculosis: The New Threat

Published by Miguel Mitchell

XDR tuberculosis is resistant to the first-line anti-TB drugs and at least 3 out of 6 of the second line anti-TB drugs. It has an estimated 85% mortality rate. Clearly we're talking about a monster.

My Antitubercular Research: Pitfalls and Recent Discoveries

Published by Miguel Mitchell

I am happy to report that my group in collaboration with Scott Franzblau from the Institute for Tuberculosis Research at U. Illinois-Chicago has published our anti-TB work (see attachment). We explored the quaternized promazine derivatives as antitubercular agents, and found that the most potent thus far are 4- and 3-chlorophenyl derivatives of triflupromazine, both nontoxic in vitro against Vero cells. In our unpublished studies, we have also discovered that both of these actives are bacteriocidal against M. tuberculosis and that the 4-chlorobenzyl derivative is as bacteriocidal as rifampin, the most potent clinically prescribed antitubercular drug. So we're quite happy!
