Abstract

The main purpose of the present review is to summarize the most significant works up to date in the field of multi-target QSAR (mt-QSAR), in order to emphasize the importance that this technique has acquired over the last decade. Unlike traditional QSAR techniques, mt-QSAR permits to calculate the probability of activity of a given compound against different biological or pharmacological targets. In simple terms, a single equation for multiple outputs.

To emphasize more the importance of the mt-QSAR in the field of drug discovery, we also present a novel mt-QSAR model, made on purpose by our research group, for the prediction of the susceptibility of Gram + and Gram – anaerobic bacteria.


Keywords: Anaerobic bacteria, molecular topology, multi-target QSAR.
