Knowledge based prediciton of toxicity

Knowledge based prediciton of toxicity

Apr 18, 2013

David Watson gave this presentation at the “Addressing toxicity in drug discovery” workshop during the ACS National Spring Meeting 2013


Toxicity of drug candidates is a major cause of expensive, late stage failure in pre-clinical and clinical development.  In this presentation, David introduced Lhasa’s world-leading technology for knowledge-based prediction of key toxicities.  Using data from published and donated (unpublished) sources, their Derek Nexus tool identifies structure-toxicity relationships that alert users to the potential of compounds causing toxicity.
