OneWorld Health Company Profile

03:45 EST 11th December 2018 | BioPortfolio

The Institute for OneWorld Health is engaged in a unique drug development project to ensure consistent, affordable supplies of artemisinin, a key component of Artemisinin-Based Combination Therapies (ACTs), used in the treatment of malaria. ACTs are currently the most effective treatment for malaria, and they are recommended as the treatment of choice by the World Health Organization (WHO). However, the cost of artemisinin-based drugs makes them inaccessible to millions of people in the developing world.
In 2004, the Institute for OneWorld Health received a $43 million grant from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation to create a unique three-way partnership between the Institute for OneWorld Health, UC Berkeley and Amyris Biotechnologies. The goal of the partnership is to significantly reduce the cost of artemisinin, a key precursor in the production of ACTs, by creating a microbially-derived precursor to compliment the existing plant derived product. The key scientific challenge facing the project is creating a microbe that can make sufficient amounts of artemisinic acid to allow scientists to ultimately produce artemisinin and subsequently artesunate or other artemisinin derivatives in commercial scale quantities
