19]. They devised a semiautomated procedure called NewPred with which they analyzed the predictivity for a series of 30 HIV-1 protease inhibitors from on a model based on 59 inhibitors. NewPred uses a limited exploration of alternative binding modes and several conformers for each compound which are individually relaxed in the binding site. The predictivity for the same test set, as earlier studied by Waller and Marshall [18|, did not change significantly using neutral (uncharged) ligands. Both studies showed for the test set.

645) resulted. ) cross-validated value may be taken into what may seem to be consistent CoMFA models with high positive cross-validated values! 3. Fortunately, the use of a test set, which still resulted in negative values, shows the poor quality of these ‘refined’ random models. This study further emphasizes the necessity of an external test set to be able to assess the quality of the derived models as pointed out by Kroemer and Hecht in their article. 3 in any direction and rotated a maximum of around any axis.

69,70] have developed a slightly different form of region selection. Initially, a number of seeds are placed in the CoMFA/3D QSAR region defined by the investigated compounds. The seeds exhibit a representative distribution in variable space. Each variable is then assigned to the nearest seed, thus forming a number of 33 Ulf Norinder polyhedra. e. they are correlated to a high degree. Application of this approach to some glycose phosphorylase b inhibitors resulted in better predictivity for an external test set compared to the region and domain variable selection techniques of Cho et al.
