Utpal, Tatu and Soundara Raghavan, Pavithra and Gowrishankar, Bhanumathi (2004) A novel assay to screen for Anti-Malarials. Patent Number(s) WO 2004057327 A1. Patent Assignee(s) Indian Institute of Science.
Malarial parasite Plasmodium falciparum is responsible for the most severe form of malaria in humans, causing about 2 million deaths every year. Lack of effective vaccines and emergence of drug-resistant strains necessitate the need of novel drug targets to treat the disease. The present invention describes a novel assay method of identifying candidate compounds as anti-malarials based on the property of binding to plasmodia1 parasite 90 kDa heat shock protein.
