Novel Therapeutics for Class B Protozoa

Cryptosporidium spp. are a major cause of prolonged disabling diarrhea, and there are only poorly efficacious drugs available now for Cryptosporidium treatment. Toxoplasma gondii causes disabling primary infection, and can endanger the fetus of pregnant women. Therapy for T. gondii is limited due to toxicity. This proposal is to test drug candidates, developed in another NIAID funded project, for cryptosporidiosis and toxoplasmosis to the point where they can be tested in humans. In the end, the goal is to have a drug candidate for regulatory (FDA) approval, with 1-2 compounds as backups. This is a pathobiology project.
