Alzheimer's disease (AD) is the most prevalent form of dementia, and current indications show that twenty-nine million people live with AD worldwide, a figure expected rise exponentially over the coming decades. AD is characterize with several pathologies this disease, amyloid plaques, composed of the β-amyloid peptide and γ-amyloid peptide are hallmark neuropathological lesions in Alzheimer's disease brain. Indeed, a wealth of evidence suggests that β-amyloid is central to the pathophysiology of AD and is likely to play an early role in this intractable neurodegenerative disorder. For this reason, we developed a new QSAR (QSAR) model to discover new drugs. A public databases ChEMBL contain Big Data sets of inhibitors of β-secretase. We revised QSAR studies using method of Artificial Neural Network (ANN) in order to understand the essential structural requirement for binding with receptor for β-secretase inhibitors.
