The following Drug Search for Leishmaniasis project update can be found here.



Dear DSFL cruncher.
I am loading a poster with preliminary results from the DSFL project. This poster was presented in the past WorldLeish5 Congress in Porto de Galinhas-Brasil from May 13 to 17. Given this is the World Congress on Leishmaniasi and attended by the most important scientific working on Leishmaniasis from all over the world, I could see that none lab is doing an ambicious work like this in terms of searching new drugs for Leishmaniasis, and this has been possible for all your support as was mentioned in the acknowledge section of if. Some researchers attending the meeting and working in drug discovery were talking with me about the project and were a bit impressed. Thanks again and we are almost close to finish the project.

After we finish the computational work, we ill start the second part, which consist of filtering and selecting the potential candidates to test them in vitro and in vivo. The selection steps is based in the Autodock vina score, if the potential compound has human approval use, oral administration, cost, etc.

Best wishes and thanks
