Reaxys Medicinal Chemistry is a new database which offers a number of features that are possibly unique and probably not available through any existing Library-subscribed databases. Elsevier say you can “filter your searches using:
◦Molecular targets or target families
◦Pharmacological effects and effect classes
◦Quantitative and qualitative compound-target interaction data
◦Protocols applied for measurement of data
◦Cell lines used in experiments to measure endpoint parameters
◦Individual bioassays or bioassay types”
There is a PDF document with further information.
Reaxys Medicinal Chemistry is on trial until 17th August. You can access it from:
