A QSAR investigation of Cytochrome P450 phenobarbital-type inductors containing the carbamide unit has been undertaken. The compound set is diverse and consists of more than 50 chemical structures of both open-chain and heterocyclic urea derivatives. The QSAR equations are obtained by the method of partia] least squares from data matrices calculated within the frontal polygon approach that is based on 3D local similarity of molecules. The approach allows to estimate quantitatively a contribution of each stmlctural fragment (submolecule) to biological activity value. Some of the most important submolecules have been used for optimal design of novel compounds that arc likely' to be effective Cytochrome P450 inductors.
