As part of the initiative, Astellas has been collaborating with five research institutions in Japan as well as with an international non-profit organization (NPO) since 2012 to discover new drugs for the treatment of NTDs caused by protozoan parasites belonging to trypanosomatidae (i.e., leishmaniasis3), Chagas disease4), and African trypanosomiasis5)) that represent significant unmet medical needs (existing collaborative research).
Un estudio demostro que las 5,7-diaril-2,3-dihidro-1,4-diazepinas (diarildiazepinas), moleculas sintetizadas por ciclocondensacion a partir de flavonas sustituidas con etilendiamina, poseen cierto grado de actividad contra el T cruzi; incluso una de las diarildiazepinas mostro una reduccion de la proliferacion de epimastigotes (una etapa de los insectos de la familia Trypanosomatidae) significativamente mayor que el benznidazol (37).
