Guide to Malaria Pharmacology Comments
Artefenomel is an antimalarial drug candidate, under clinical development as a single-dose oral cure for uncomplicated P. falciparum malaria. Artefenomel has rapid activity against the asexual blood stage of P. falciparum, demonstrates transmission-blocking activity and provides a longer terminal half-life of elimination when compared to clinically available endoperoxides [1-2,4].

Potential Target/Mechanism Of Action: As the precise mechanism of action of artefenomel is not yet known, we do not have a molecular target for this compound.
