    Antidesmone, a novel acetogenic quinolone alkaloid from the African shrub Antidesma membranaceum, has been found to exhibit potent antitrypanosomal activity against Trypanasoma cruzi, the pathogenic agent of Chagas disease. The activity seems to be highly selective, being much larger than that towards other protozoan parasites causing tropical diseases.
