Modern molecular and cell biology no longer focus only on single macromolecules but now look into pathways, complexes or even entire organisms.

Researchers design a model to predict the effects of chemical substances on health

The analysis of drugs, natural products, and chemical substances found in the environment allows the identification of the chemical fragments responsible for a therapeutic or deleterious effect on human health.

This knowledge may be valuable for the design of drugs with fewer secondary effects, for associating diseases, and for identifying new uses for drugs currently on the market.

The predictive model developed by researchers at IRB Barcelona provides information for the treatment of 20% of human diseases.
