Classifying Drug induced Liver Damage into Active and Sedentary Sections. As we all know that liver is a vivacious organ of human being, responsible for various important functions like removal of chemicals. However, sometimes these chemicals become toxic for the liver which leads to liver damage. This damage caused by some chemical is called hepatotoxicity.

Classifying Drug induced Liver Damage

In the field of drug discovery, data on liver injury persuaded by drugs are highly important. But there is not much availability of investigational clinical data, which makes it very difficult to outspread the database on this process. Keeping this in view, Alla. P. Toropova et al in one of their recent experiments, developed one of the best approach for classifying that is QSAR or Quantitative structure-activity relationships.

The authors published in the Journal Toxicology Letters in year 2017 by Springer. Several models on the basis of prediction for liver damage caused by drugs were built by utilizing CORAL software and the method of Monte Carlo. These models in turned showed the classifications into active and inactive sections.

All the calculations were made on the basis of semi-correlations. All the model’s association coefficient for outbound validation ranges from 0.52-0.62. After development of these models the researchers checked it with a number of arbitrary splits into training and sets of validation. With this experiment a high stability was gained for prediction of models for several diversions.


The methodology of this experiment mainly includes building up a QSAR archetypal by utilizing Monte Carlo method, that is solely based on illustration of the molecular structure with the help of SMILES or Simplified Molecular Input Line Entry and the graph of hydrogen suppressed. All this were carried out by means of the CORAL software.
