How to Prepare a Compound Collection Prior to Virtual Screening.

Virtual screening is a well-established technique that has proven to be successful in the identification of novel biologically active molecules, including drug repurposing. Whether for ligand-based or for structure-based virtual screening, a chemical collection needs to be properly processed prior

Comparison of 71 bipolar disorder pharmacotherapies for kidney disorder risk: The potential hazards of polypharmacy

Read Article Newly observed KD occurred in 14,713 patients. No regimen had significantly lower risk of KDs than “No drug”. The HR estimates ranged 0.86–2.66 for “all” KDs and 0.87–5.30 for “severe” KDs. As additional drugs were combined to compare
