Repurposing of Human Tyrosine Kinase Inhibitors for Neglected Diseases Book Review:

*Chapter 1: Neglected tropical disease, Chagas disease and target repurposing approach* The term "Neglected Tropical Diseases" (NTDs) most commonly refers to a group of parasitic and bacterial infectious disease affecting more than one billion people globally. There are 13 core diseases in the NTD group that are widespread across the countries from sub-Saharan Africa, Asia and to Latin America. These diseases primarily occur in rural areas, urban slums or conflict zones and affect 2.7 billion people who live on less than $2 per day, causing considerable morbidity and mortality. NTDs cause severe impact on physical and cognitive development, long-term illness, impaired childhood growth and development, adverse outcomes of pregnancy and trap the poor population in a cycle of poverty and disease. Many of these diseases are neglected at the global and local level by the government and private sector owing to the poor return of drug discovery research costs. Also, the emerging resistance to the current therapies can add more burdens to the poor nations The focus of this thesis is upon finding new leads for targeting protozoan parasite "Trypanosoma cruzi", responsible for Chagas disease (CD) by using Target repurposing approach. CD affects nearly 8 million people in Latin America and increasing number of cases reported across Europe and United States. Only two FDA approved drugs are currently available for treating CD. Target repurposing approach is a viable strategy to reduce the time and expense of discovering new therapeutic molecules. In this approach a molecular target in the parasites are matched with homologous human targets that has been previously pursued for drug discovery. We can utilize this knowledge of "druggable" targets in one organism to pursue new potential drug targets in the parasites. *Chapters 2 & 3: Scaffold replacements and head group truncation using in silico models* Our lab has applied target repurposing approach to identify several novel leads against protozoan parasites responsible for causing CD, human African sleeping sickness, leishmaniasis and malaria. Kinases are an extensively pursued class of drug targets to treat several diseases like cancer, immunological and neurological disorders, inflammation and infectious diseases. Lapatinib, an FDA approved dual tyrosine kinase inhibitor (EGFR/HER2) drug for treating breast cancer was repurposed for its anti-trypanosomal properties. Extensive SAR studies of lapatinib analogs led to sub-micromolar potent compound 1.25 (Figure 1.9) against the parasite "T. brucei". Hypothesizing that other parasites express similar kinase pathways, these libraries of compound were screened against other related parasites, which resulted in several lead compounds of micromolar potency. Encouraged by these results, we advanced our work to a scaffold replacement strategy. This resulted in the discovery of a potent lead 2.25b (Figure 2.6) with 0.09 μM activity against "T. cruzi". Despite having a good efficacy, the lead compound failed in the in vivo animal studies due to poor physicochemical properties. In an attempt to improve the physicochemical properties, we adopted a head group replacement strategy for the lead compound based on molecular modelling and virtual screening tools. The concept of ligand efficiency (LE) and lipophilic ligand efficiency (LLE/LiPE) were introduced with an aim to identify new leads. Finally, an attempt was made to establish a possible structure activity relationship (SAR) from the screening data of all the library series. *Chapter 4: Future directions* Final chapter summarizes the results of this thesis and provides the futuristic plan for the advancement of the current work to identify potent leads for Chagas disease.

An Overview of Tropical Diseases Book Review:

Tropical diseases affect millions of people throughout the world and particularly in the developing countries. The millennium development goals had specifically targeted HIV/AIDS and Malaria for substantial reduction as well as Tuberculosis while many other tropical diseases have been neglected. The new sustainable development goals have not made such distinction and have targeted all diseases for elimination for the improvement of the quality of life of human beings on earth. The present book was developed to provide an update on issues relevant to the treatment of selected tropical diseases such as tuberculosis, malaria, leishmaniasis, schistosomiasis and ectoparasites such as chiggers which are widely distributed throughout the world. The control of these infections has been hampered by the development of drug resistance and the lack of the development of new and more effective drugs. The understanding of the biochemical processes underlying drug activity is therefore essential for the potential elimination of these infections.

Tapping Molecular Wilderness Book Review:

This book is for readers with some background in science, concerning the search for drugs, starting from molecular diversity in nature or molecular wilderness. Drug molecules may be used as such, or as starting points for improved drugs obtained from the interface of chemistry and biology. In some cases, the essential molecular features for drug properties from natural molecules may be identified and modified to more effective ones. In other cases, nature provides the targets, such as essential enzymes from infectious microorganisms, from which synthetic drugs can be designed. The mechanisms of action of drugs can be discerned by studying target–drug interactions. Nature may fight back, as in cases when microorganisms become resistant to drugs, but we can again use the chemistry–biology interface to obtain drugs which overcome the resistance. The battle goes on, hopefully with victory for both humans and balance of nature. This book differs from those available on the subject of natural products and drugs derived therefrom in that it looks at the broad picture on how materials and organisms from nature affect our health and how we have combined our knowledge in chemistry, biology, and biodiversity to promote our wellness from resources in the "molecular wilderness," with caveats on sustainable utilization of these resources. It is therefore suitable, not only for readers interested in science and medicine, but also for those with interest in policy issues concerning sustainable development, environment, and issues concerning interaction of science and society in general.
