|The interaction table below provides data from whole cell assays and gives the antiparasite activity of ACT-451840 against a number of Plasmodium lifecycle stages. The results include an evaluation of asexual blood stage activity using a panel of culture-adapted P. falciparum strains, with ACT-451840 demonstrating no evidence of reduced potency against drug resistant strains. Results from assays measuring the effect of ACT-451840 on the functional viability of mature gametocytes and oocysts of P. falciparum indicate that the transmission-blocking effect is dependent on the gametocytocidal activity of the compound.|
