(+)-SJ733 has completed Phase 1 trials, demonstrating a favourable pharmacokinetic, tolerability, and safety profile combined with rapid parasite clearance [1].
Mechanism Of Action and Pharmacodynamic Effects Click here for help
The exact mechanism of action of (+)-SJ733 is not fully understood but Plasmodium non-SERCA-type Ca2+-transporting P-ATPase (PfATP4) may be the potential target because mutatations in PfATP4 confer resistance to this compound [2]. (+)-SJ733 produces a rapid perturbation of parasitic intracellular Na+ levels, in concurrence with the proposed role of PfATP4 in the regulation of Na+ homeostasis, followed by physical changes in the infected erythrocytes. It has been proposed that host-mediated clearance of infected cells may be responsible for the rapid action of PfATP4 inhibitors [2].
