Peptidyl MIMs also have proven effective against sporozites of five different species  of Eimeria infecting chickens, and merozites of two different species that infect chickens. Data strongly suggests that Peptidyl MIMs may be useful in controlling coccidiosis in poultry. They also have shown great promise against many other human pathogens such as Trypanosoma cruzi Amasstigotes (Chagas disease), Cystic Fibrosis, different types of sexual transmitted diseases, as well as being cyotoxic to cancer cells.
