Not always lead compound and/or derivatives are suitable for the specific biological target for which they are designed but, in some cases, discarded compounds proved to be good binders for other biological targets; therefore, drug repurposing constitute a valid alternative to avoid waste of human and financial resources. Our virtual lock-and-key methods, VLKA and Conf-VLKA, furnish a strong support to predict the efficacy of a designed drug a priori its biological evaluation, or the correct biological target for a set of the selected compounds, allowing thus the repurposing of known and unknown, active and inactive compounds.
