Drug Repurposing Framework

There are drug repurposing strategies:

  • Disease-centric: Repurposing drugs across different diseases within a similar family.
  • Target-centric: Identifying drugs that act on common targets across different diseases.
  • Drug-centric: Discovering new targets for existing drugs, facilitated by DiPhyx's comprehensive database and predictive modeling capabilities.

Drug Repurposing Software and Tools

This list includes various tools and software platforms that are widely used in the field of drug repurposing. They offer various functionalities from database access to computational screening capabilities.

  1. DrugBank is a comprehensive resource that combines detailed drug data with comprehensive drug target information.
  2. ChEMBL is a manually curated database of bioactive molecules with drug-like properties. It is maintained by the European Bioinformatics Institute.
  3. PubChem provides information on the biological activities of small molecules. It is a resource from the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI).
  4. REPOSM - The Repurposing, Focused Rescue, and Accelerated Medchem project, which targets academic and nonprofit research sectors.
  5. Connectivity Map (CMap) - A tool that uses gene expression data to find connections between diseases, genetic perturbation, and drug action.
  6. SwissTargetPrediction - Allows users to predict the targets of bioactive molecules based on a similarity ensemble approach.
  7. HitPick - A tool for identifying potential target predictions for chemical compounds used in drug discovery.
  8. Pharos - Part of the Illuminating the Druggable Genome project, Pharos provides data on the druggability of targets.
  9. Drug Repurposing Hub - A curated repository of drugs that can be repurposed, developed by the Broad Institute.
  10. Open Targets - A platform that integrates genetics, functional genomics, and drug information to help determine the validity of therapeutic targets.
