Working with our industrial partners has been the cornerstone of IVCC's mission to develop new active ingredients, each with a novel mode of action. These will form the basis of a new generation of insecticides suitable for public health purposes.
The main objective of developing new active ingredients is to target the malaria transmitting mosquitoes, but they will also have wider application in controlling insects that transmit other diseases.
Since 2007, our industrial partners have searched their libraries of around 4 million chemical compounds, and screened hundreds of thousands of chemical classes using IVCC Target Product Profiles to ensure suitability for purpose.
Nine novel chemical classes have shown significant activity against adult mosquitoes and are ready to be moved into the candidate selection, from which three of these new active ingredients will be to full development.
The high level of commitment and support that IVCC has received from its industry partners has been invaluable. Without their hard work, the AI portfolio would not be where it is today, poised to enter the final development stages.
