How do scientists design an anti-inflammatory drug without side effects on the stomach?


This bioinformatics tool can predict how a drug-candidate molecule binds to a protein involved in inflammation (COX2) and to another similar protein (COX1).

Biological context and description of drug molecules: here

Drag and drop a drug-candidate over either COX1 or COX2.

You can also design and test your own molecule: click on the « Design your own molecule » box.
