Our structure-guided drug screening efforts resulted in an identification of novel adamantanyl-based-antimalarial compound named Supradamal (SRA). SRA exhibits a nanomolar inhibitory activity in both peptidylprolyl cis-trans isomerase (PPIase) assay and growth of P. falciparum cultured in human erythrocytes. In particular, SRA appears to inhibit the trophozoite development.
