OpenSourceMalaria:Other GSK Series Under Consideration
Other GSK Series Under Consideration
The team have focused on the synthesis and evaluation of two series (the aryl pyrroles and aminothienopyrimidines) to date. The focus of the project could change quite rapidly following the receipt of new biological data (for highly active or inactive compounds). This page highlights other GSK compounds from the TCAMS data that look attractive.
This compound looked attractive as analogues could be readily assembled from commercial starting materials in 2-3 steps. Therefore, a number of compounds could be evaluated relatively quickly. It also looks to be an attractive target for undergraduate classes.
