A model that predicts the effects of chemicals on health

Diario Médico, like many other national and international media, has echoed Patrick Aloy and Miquel Duran’s article, published in the latest issue of Nature Communications. They report on a predictive model that allows the chemical compounds fragments to be related to their positive and negative effects for 20% of human diseases. The results of this study are expected to allow the design of safer drugs, the detection of associations between diseases, and the identification of new uses for drugs that are already on the market.
