Inhibitors for AutoPhagy and DCAR-1 as Novel Anthelmintic Drugs

Description:

Nematodes are parasitic round worms that infect humans and cause significant issues from anemia, intestinal disease, respiratory disorders, and disfigurement of limbs to ultimately death. Controlling parasitic nematodes can be accomplished by modifying food supply, temperature, and molecular signaling pathways within the organism.  This technology inhibits autography genes and blocks the recovery of the organism from cellular damage (i.e. injury) and suppresses growth. This technology could be utilized to determine and evaluate drug candidates for treatment of parasitic infections.
