During the search for a potent antifungal drug, a cell-permeable metabolite was isolated from a soil isolate taxonomically identified as Penicillium radicum. The strain was found to be a potent antifungal agent. Production conditions of the active compound were optimized and the active compound was isolated, purified, characterized and identified as a(More)
Immunostimulatory peptides potentiate the immune system of the host and are being used as a viable adjunct to established therapeutic modalities in treatment of cancer and microbial infections. Several peptides derived from milk protein have been reported to induce immunostimulatory activity. Human β -casein fragment (54-59), natural sequence peptide (NS)(More)
A new series of side chain-modified 4-aminoquinolines were synthesized and screened for in vitro antiplasmodial activity against both chloroquine-sensitive (3D7) and chloroquine-resistant (K1) strains of Plasmodium falciparum. Among the series, compounds 30 and 31 showed significant inhibition of parasite growth against K1 strain of P. falciparum with IC50(More)
BACKGROUND The present study examines a hypothesis that short allergen-derived peptides may shift an Aspergillus fumigatus (Afu-) specific TH2 response towards a protective TH1. Five overlapping peptides (P1-P5) derived from Asp f1, a major allergen/antigen of Afu, were evaluated for prophylactic or therapeutic efficacy in BALB/c mice. METHODS To evaluate(More)
