Abstract: A series of etacrynic acid derivatives was synthesized and screened for their in vitro activity against Plasmodium falciparum, as well as their activity against recombinantly expressed falcipain-2 and -3. The two most active compounds of the series displayed IC50 values of 9.0 and 18.8 μM against Plasmodia.
Keywords: Malaria; Cysteine protease inhibitor; Etacrynic acid
