Yes, there is one that I am aware of and have used.  It's called TOPKAT,
and is produced by a compnay called Health Designs Inc. (HDI) in
Rochester, New York.  The principal author on most of the papers they
have published on QSAR models is Dr. Kurt Enslein.  You should be able to
find info if you search under his name or TOPKAT.
