Variable selection is a procedure used to select the most important features to obtain as much information as possible from a reduced amount of features. The selection stage is crucial. The subsequent design of a quantitative structure-activity relationship (QSAR) model (regression or discriminant) would lead to poor performance if little significant(More)
Prevention of environmentally induced cancers is a major health problem of which solutions depend on the rapid and accurate screening of potential chemical hazards. Lately, theoretical approaches such as the one proposed here - Quantitative Structure-Activity Relationship (QSAR) - are increasingly used for assessing the risks of environmental chemicals,(More)
Inhibitory activity against aldose reductase enzyme of flavonoid derivatives were modelled using 11 kinds of molecular descriptors from Dragon software. Model with four Galvez Charge Indices described 67% of data variance and overtaken other models using the same number of variables. Galvez indices showed to contain important information on the relationship(More)
The BCUT descriptors have been applied to the study of the A(3) adenosine receptor agonist effect of 32 adenosine analogues. A model, able to describe more than 80% of the variance in the experimental activity was developed with the use of the above-mentioned approach. Four different approaches (topological, Galvez topological charges indexes, Randić(More)
In order to minimize expensive drug failures it is essential to determine the potential biological activity of new candidates as early as possible. In view of the large libraries of nucleoside analogues that are now being handled in organic synthesis, the identification of a drugs biological activity is advisable even before synthesis and this can be(More)
In order to minimize expensive drug failures, is essential to determine potential activity, toxicity and ADME problems as early as possible. In view of the large libraries of compounds now being handled by combinatorial chemistry and high-throughput screening, identification of potential drug is advisable even before synthesis using computational techniques(More)
A novel application of TOPological Substructural MOlecular DEsign (TOPS-MODE) was carried out in antibacterial drugs using computer-aided molecular design. Two series of compounds, one containing antibacterial and the other containing non-antibacterial compounds, were processed by a k-means cluster analysis in order to design training and predicting series.(More)
Inhibition of farnesyltransferase (FT) enzyme by a set of 78 thiol and non-thiol peptidomimetic inhibitors was successfully modeled by a genetic neural network (GNN) approach, using radial distribution function descriptors. A linear model was unable to successfully fit the whole data set; however, the optimum Bayesian regularized neural network model(More)
The human intestinal absorption (HIA) of drugs was studied using a topological sub-structural approach (TOPS-MODE). The drugs were divided into three classes according to reported cutoff values for HIA. "Poor" absorption was defined as HIA < or =30%, "high" absorption as HIA > or =80%, whereas "moderate" absorption was defined between these two values (30%(More)
The spectral moment descriptors have been applied to the study of affinity for A(3) adenosine receptors of 32 adenosine analogues. A model, able to describe more than 95% of the variance in the experimental activity, was developed with the use of the above-mentioned approach. The fragment contributions to the activity carried out show that the sulfonamido(More)
