Newcomer explained that each drug class is composed of a group of drugs that have a common chemical property. Some examples in the cardiac area include angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors, which would be one class, and calcium channel-blockers would be another.
The inter-media transport factor predictor (ITFP) software consists of three main components: (1) a chemical property database (CHEMBASE), which contains environmentally relevant physicochemical properties, compiled and critically evaluated from various literature sources, for selected air toxics; (2) a chemical property predictor (CPP), which contains various methods to estimate a selection of physicochemical parameters for different chemical classes; (3) an inter-media transport parameter predictor (ITPP), which is capable of estimating parameters such as dry deposition velocity, wet scavenging coefficients for chemical in the particle-bound and gaseous forms, chemical water/air mass transfer coefficients, and half-life for chemical volatilization from the soil.
The scheme the chemists propose works something like a bucket brigade, with the dangerous chemical property being passed from one molecule to the next.
