CYP450 inhibitory promiscuity

In DrugBank, the property CYP450 inhibitory promiscuity refers to the capacity for a drug or chemical to bind to and decrease or diminish the activity of multiple different CYP450 isoform enzymes 1.

The value and probability predicted for this property are determined using software developed by admetSAR 2. The predicted value can be either 'High CYP Inhibitory Promiscuity' or 'Low CYP Inhibitory Promiscuity' and refers to whether the drug being discussed does or does not possess substantial CYP450 inhibitory promiscuity, respectively. Finally, the predicted probability is a numerical value between 0 and 1 that represents the percentage probability of the aforementioned predicted value.
