A Computational View of COX-2 Inhibition
Selective inhibition of COX-2 provided a new class of anti-inflammatory, analgesic and antipyretic drugs with significantly reduced side effects and could also be an important strategy for preventing or treating a number of cancers. This review illustrates the molecular modeling methods used for the knowledge of the molecular mechanism of inhibition as well as for the design of selective compounds.
