Multivariate methods and molecular properties are utilized to show similarity of pyridine-3-carboxylic acid (nicotinic acid) to seven drugs that penetrate the central nervous system. Multivariate methods applied include cluster analysis, discriminant analysis, correspondence analysis, self organizing tree algorithm (SOTA) analysis, factor analysis, and principal component analysis. Numerical values of properties for nicotinic acid showed very high correlation with the values from… Expand

Brain-specific chemical delivery systems for beta-lactam antibiotics. Synthesis and properties of some dihydropyridine and dihydroiosquinoline derivatives of benzylpenicillin.
Six chemical delivery systems (CDS) were synthesized for benzylpenicillin in order to improve its transport across the blood-brain barrier. The CDS's were based on a dihydropyridine----quaternaryExpand
Brain-specific chemical delivery systems for beta-lactam antibiotics. In vitro and in vivo studies of some dihydropyridine and dihydroisoquinoline derivatives of benzylpenicillin in rats.
The remarkable increase of BP levels as well as the prolonged effect after the administration of 5 and 9 is a result of an improved penetration through the blood-brain barrier of the lipophilic CDS's and a "lock-in" effect of the corresponding quaternary salts generated in situ. Expand
Synthesis and Alkylation Activity of a Nitrogen Mustard Agent to Penetrate the Blood-Brain Barrier
Pharmacological descriptors calculated showed values indicating a strong potential of penetrating the blood-brain barrier and alkylation reaction was found to be second-order with rate equation: rate = k2[N-mustard][Nu], where Nu = nucleophile and k2 = 0.0415 L/(mol · min). Expand
Chemical delivery systems for some penicillinase-resistant semisynthetic penicillins.
A preliminary in vivo distribution study in the rat and rabbit demonstrated blood-brain barrier (BBB) penetration by the CDS, whereas no drug was detected by administering the drug itself. Expand
A bifunctional alkylating nitrogen mustard agent that utilizes barbituric acid as carrier drug with the potential for crossing the brain-blood barrier.
The N- mustard agent showed zero violations of the Rule of 5, indicating good bioavailability and the N-mustard substituents significantly increased solubility in lipid by-layers. Expand
New carrier for specific delivery of drugs to the brain.
The results suggest that the designed carrier is promising to be used in application of pharmaceutical formulation of 1,4-dihydropyridine-3,5-dicarboxylate derivatives. Expand

There are currently about 10000 drug-like compounds, and true diversity does not exist in experimental combinatorial chemistry screening libraries because current ADME experimental screens are multi-mechanisms, and predictions get worse as more data accumulates. Expand
Fast calculation of molecular polar surface area as a sum of fragment-based contributions and its application to the prediction of drug transport properties.
The method, termed topological PSA (TPSA), provides results which are practically identical with the 3D PSA, while the computation speed is 2-3 orders of magnitude faster and may be used for fast bioavailability screening of virtual libraries having millions of molecules. Expand
