Discovery of Novel Pharmacophores Inhibiting the Growth of Mycobacterium tuberculosis Description of Technology: Tuberculosis (TB) caused by Mycobacterium tuberculosis infects roughly one third of the world population and approximately 8 million people develop TB annually. The emergence of multi-drug resistant (MDR) and extensively drug-resistant (XDR) TB strains highlight the need for new drugs against TB. The inventions described herein are small molecules with drug-like properties that inhibit the growth of Mycobacterium tuberculosis. The compounds were discovered utilizing high-throughput screening of a 101,000 compound library. Three hundred active compounds inhibit Mycobacterium tuberculosis growth by 90% or greater in in vitro assays with MIC values ranging from 1.6 to less than 0.1 micrograms/ml, and showing minimal toxicity in tissue culture cells. Structure similarity analyses of the compounds reveal 44 chemical clusters representing 250 active compounds. Applications: Treatment of TB infections. Advantages: Novel drug candidates against TB. Development Status: In vitro data can be provided upon request. Market: TB therapeutics. Inventors: Robert C. Goldman (NIAID) et al. Publications: Manuscript in preparation. Patent Status: U.S. Provisional Application No. 61/092,710 filed 28 Aug 2008 (HHS Reference No. E–310– 2008/0–US–01). Licensing Status: Available for exclusive or non-exclusive licensing.
