This is caused by a lack of efficient dereplication methodologies for both natural product sourcing and compounds in the natural product libraries. The time-consuming processes of dereplication and purification are not compatible with the present regime of “blitz” screening campaigns in which assay support is only available for a limited duration (3 months). Besides, natural products are often structurally complex; modification of complex natural products using organic chemistry is frequently challenging.

244,245 When doripenem is absorbed into the body, the drug takes effect by eliminating the initial bacteria causing the infection. Primarily, doripenem decreases the process of cell wall growth, which eventually leads to elimination of the infectious cell bacteria altogether. 10. 248–251 It received final approval from the US Food and Drug Administration on March 2005 and gained approval in the European Union on April 25, 2008. The drug (21) inhibits the production of 1,3-β-D-glucan, an essential polysaccharide component of fungal cell wall; this decreased glucan production leads to osmotic instability and thus cellular lysis;248–260 since January 2008, micafungin has been approved for the prophylaxis of Candida infections in patients undergoing hematopoietic stem cell transplantation.

15. 318 Aztreonam binds to penicillin-binding proteins of susceptible bacteria, leading to the inhibition of bacterial cell wall synthesis and cell death. 2. 1. 319–326 Gemtuzumab ozogamicin (30) consists of N-acetyl-calicheamicin dimethyl hydrazide (CalichDMH), a derivative of the enediyne natural product calicheamicin (31), linked through a pH-labile hydrazone moiety to a recombinant humanized IgG4 k antibody. Mylotarg®, a prodrug of calicheamicin bound to the anti-CD33 monoclonal antibody, is cleaved by lysosomes in the cells to release calicheamicin.
