The Low-Hanging Fruit site provides a portal by which the community can view hits from these screens and make decisions on which compounds represent the most suitable leads to take to the next step in the drug development pipeline. We have now carried out screens for T. brucei, L. donovani, Entamoeba histolytica, and Schistosoma mansoni using the Spectrum Collection.
