Medicinal chemistry has in the past been dominated by learned insights from experienced organic chemists. However, with the advent of computer based methods, computer aided drug design has become prominent. We have compared here the ability of locally sourced expert medicinal chemists to purely automated methods and found that the automated method produces a better potential candidate drug than the expert input. The example chosen is based on inhibitors to Abl-kinase and the successful anti-leukaemic drug imatinib. The proposed molecule is a simple modification of nilotinib and has a docking energy of 4.2 kJ/mol better than the best intuitive molecule.
