Docking simulations are very popular approaches able to assess the capacity of a given ligand to interact with a target. Docking simulations are usually focused on a single best complex even though many studies showed that ligands retain a significant mobility within a binding pocket by assuming different binding modes all of which may contribute to the monitored ligand affinity. The present study describes an innovative concept, the binding space, which allows an exploration of the ligand mobility within the binding pocket by simultaneously considering several ligand poses as generated by docking simulations...

Dialysis initiation rates among older adults, aged 75 years or greater, are increasing at a faster rate than for younger age groups. Older adults with advanced CKD (eGFR < 30 ml/min/1.73 m(2)) typically lose renal function slowly, often suffer from significant comorbidity and thus may die from associated comorbidities before they require dialysis.A patient's pattern of renal function loss over time in relation to their underlying comorbidities can serve as a guide to the probability of a future dialysis requirement...
