Multivariate chemogenomic screening prioritizes new macrofilaricidal leads - Communications Biology
Development of direct acting macrofilaricides for the treatment of human filariases is hampered by limitations in screening throughput imposed by the parasite life cycle. In vitro adult screens typically assess single phenotypes without prior enrichment for chemicals with antifilarial potential.
