For information on how to get the data, to access PreADMET with registration instructions, go to simulator tab
Click on the link Toxicity Prediction in the home page, when it redirects to login page.

One can draw the chemical structure of the drug molecule using the tool bar in the white window shown in the above screenshot (Figure 2).
Figure 3: Screenshot of toolbar to draw the compound strucutre
One can also import the structure of a molecule into the tool for predicting toxicity; the structure should be loaded in “mol” format.

Once the molecule is open and loaded, click on the calculate button seen at bottom right side of the window.

Interpretation of results
PreADMET predicts mutagenicity and carcinogenicity of compounds. It conducts AMES test , which is a method to test mutagenicity. The test uses several strains of bacterium Salmonella typhimurium that contains several mutations in genes involved in histidine synthesis.
PreADMET predicts the toxicity to TA98, TA100, TA1535 strains, which are often used and result is considered both with the metabolite and without it. The result of prediction says whether it is positive or negative.
PreADMET also predicts carcinogenicity results from the model of mice or rat, which is built from the data of NTP (National Toxicology Program). Carcinogenicity test results can also be used as a classifier since result would be either positive or negative.
