Peptoids, a class of peptide mimetics, have emerged as promising anti-infective agents against a range of bacterial infections. Herein we present the first study of the antiparasitic and specifically the anti-leishmanial properties of linear peptoids. Peptoids were identified as having promising activity against Leishmania mexicana axenic amastigotes, a causative agent of cutaneous leishmaniasis.
