A large series of cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) inhibitors with diverse skeletons were investigated by means of the Electronic-Topological Method. A system for the COX-2 inhibitor activity prognostication was built with 6 pharmacophores and 6 anti-pharmacophores. The forecasting ability of the system was also tested on different structures, which differ from those that characterize the series studied.
