Drug discovery is a challenging task for researchers due to the complexity of biomolecules involved in pathologic processes. Design and development of efficient drugs is still urgent for several diseases. Cheminformatics tools are useful to better understand the interaction between new chemical entities and their targets. We studied a selected series of 3-arylcoumarins with antioxidant potential, and determined how their chemical features can contribute for the clastogenic activity. A virtual screening, based on the TOPSMODE approach, using a clastogenic model, was performed. The results suggested that the presence and position of hydroxyl groups in the scaffold is important for the activity. This communication is focused on cheminformatics, and its applications in drug effectiveness and safety.
