Beyond Filters: ADMET Risk™ for Multi-objective Drug Development

Conference: ACS
Software: ADMET Predictor®
Division: Simulations Plus


ADMETThese thresholds, combined with classification models for over 40 metabolic and toxicological liabilities, enable us to calculate an aggregate risk score (ADMET Risk™)2•3 for any molecule. ADMET Risk goes beyond the “Rule of 5″ formulated by Lipinski et al.4 by identifying additional potential liabilities – points are added for predicted properties that exceed their threshold values or are classified as problematic. A list of mnemonic codes (ADMET Code ™)3 associated with the numerical score make it easy to identify each ·rule” violated by a given compound.
