Over the last few years a remarkable progress has been made in the understanding of parasites biochemistry, molecular biology, and immunology. This progress is especially encouraging in that emphasis on drug development is shifting from random screening towards a more rational approach. A number of peculiar aspects characteristic of parasites which are not present in other organisms and that might be exploitable for the design of specific agents have been described recently. One of these… CONTINUE READING
