We’re Making an Impact
While diarrheal disease is merely an inconvenience in industrial countries, it is the second leading killer of children under 5 worldwide. With 2,000 kids dying every day, we are contributing to the global fight against deadly diarrhea by developing novel drugs like iOWH032—our antisecretory drug candidate designed to quickly reduce diarrhea symptoms.
A new model for drug development
Help us identify available drug leads. Research candidates for further study. Screen molecules. And get lifesaving drugs off the lab shelf and into clinical trials. OneWorld Health is participating in Open Source Drug Development with pharmaceutical companies to speed research on treatments for neglected diseases. Our collaborative partnerships are dedicated to performing an international search with researchers around the world to find promising solutions to neglected diseases. We work closely with the lead originators and inventors, fund drug development, and secure the rights to bring innovative medicines to people in the developing world. For compounds that have moved beyond the research stage, we are particularly interested in efficacy, cost of synthesis, chemical stability, toxicity profile and available preclinical and clinical data.
