Collaborative Drug Discovery, Inc. and St. Jude Children's Research Hospital Make Malaria Research Data Available to Speed Drug Development
Date:10/11/2007

compounds and the results of studies on their biochemical activity in animals, data on how they work in the body, how long they last, and other pharmacological data, in addition to their level of toxicity. The results of the animal studies represent one of the largest sets of published data on the structure-activity relationship (SAR) of molecules against a single disease, Guy said. SAR refers to the link between a molecule's specific structure and the biological effect it has because of that structure.

CDD scanned the information from the original publication into a computer database and organized it into a format that can be read, searched and shared. This more convenient format will enable St. Jude scientists to use the information to develop models of new anti-malaria drugs and predict their efficacy, toxicity, and how the body will respond to them.

Based on such models, St. Jude researchers are conducting a comprehensive analysis of "relevant chemical space" of these molecules, something that has never before been done for malarial drug research, Guy said. Relevant chemical space refers to the study of individual families of molecules whose members all share a similar structure that holds promise for a specific therapeutic use. Concentrating on only certain families of molecules likely to have the desired effect saves time and speeds the discovery of the few molecules most likely to have all the characteristics needed for an effective anti-malaria drug, he said.

The anti-malarial drug study is the first of several planned by CDD to help the research community discover drugs for orphan infectious diseases-disorders for which there is little commercial interest in developing drugs. Future CDD communities are planned in other more commercial areas, such as cancer research and selected gene families.
