|Dr Haloom Rafehi|
Developing new drugs is an expensive, time-consuming and labour-intensive process.
As costs skyrocket, drug repurposing or repositioning – a process by which existing, clinically approved drugs are repurposed for different conditions – is attracting increasing interest.
A new study by Monash University scientists from the Department of Diabetes investigated the approach and found a group of such drugs that could potentially be used to help counter diabetic complications.

|Drs Jae Young Lee and Steven Petratos, first and last authors |
respectively on the paper
Monash University researchers have developed – and patented – a small molecule that holds promise as a drug to help treat diseases affecting motor control, including Multiple Sclerosis (MS).
Led by Dr Steven Petratos, the researchers investigated the molecule, called DITPA, in a rare disorder called Allan-Herndon-Dudley syndrome (AHDS). The condition, which starts developing before birth, causes psychomotor retardation, whereby the person cannot control movement in their body and can have severe intellectual disability. It is inherited via a genetic mutation and only affects males.
