Synthesis and biological evaluation of a novel class as antileishmanial agent


Leishmaniases are a group of diseases caused by the protozoan parasites of the genus Leishmania. Despite the tremendous progress made in the understanding of the biochemistry and molecular biology of the parasite, the first choice treatment for leishmaniases still relies on pentavalent antimonial developed more than 50 years ago. These drugs are potentially… (More)
