Filarial diseases, including lymphatic filariasis and onchocerciasis, are considered among the most devastating of all tropical diseases, affecting about 145 million people worldwide. Efforts to control and eliminate onchocerciasis are impeded by a lack of effective treatments that target the adult filarial stage. Herein, we describe the discovery of a series of substituted di­(pyridin-2-yl)-1,2,4-thiadiazol-5-amines as novel macrofilaricides for the treatment of human filarial infections.
