Histone deacetylase (HDAC) enzymes are targets for the development of antimalarial drugs with a different mode of action to established antimalarials. Broad-spectrum HDAC-inhibitors show high potency against Plasmodium falciparum, but displayed some toxicity towards human cells. Inhibitors of human HDAC6 are new drug candidates with supposed reduced toxicity to human cells and favorable activities against laboratory P. falciparum strains.
