2D QSAR is a powerful tool for explaining the relationships between chemical structure and experimental observations. Key elements of the method are the numerical descriptors used to translate a chemical structure into mathematical variables, the quality of the observed data and the statistical methods used to derive the relationships between the observations and the descriptors. There are some caveats to what is essentially a simple procedure: overfitting of the data, domain applicability to new structures and making good error estimates for each prediction. 2D QSAR models are used routinely during the process of optimization of a chemical series towards a candidate for clinical trials. As more knowledge is gained in this area, 2D QSARs will become acceptable surrogates for experimental observations.

The effect of parameterization on prediction accuracy of the training and test set compounds. Based upon a figure by Hastie et al.

The effect of increasing parameters on model fit. The generating model was a quadratic function with a random Gaussian‐distributed error term.

A decision tree for predicting blood brain barrier permeation, as described by Suenderhauf et al. CNSp+ represents log PS measurement of > −2 and CNSp – represents a log PS measurement of < −3; alog P is the Ghose–Crippen predicted partition coefficient; fPSA3 is the fraction polar surface area; #RotBonds is the number of rotatable bonds; and #Acceptors is the number of hydrogen bond acceptors.

Receiver operating characteristic (ROC) curve generated from data obtained from Clark. log BB measurements and predictions were classified as CNS+ if log BB> − 0.5, and CNS– if log BB<−0.5. The AUC is 0.93.
[ Normal View | Magnified View ]
Confusion matrix for evaluating classification models generated from data obtained from Clark. The measurements and predictions from the DECII model were classified as BB+ if the log BB was greater than −0.5, and vice versa.

Excessive leverage by a single isolated data point confounds model building.
