Drug repositioning, also known as drug repurposing or reprofiling, is the process of finding new indications for established drugs. Because drug repositioning can reduce costs and enhance the efficiency of drug development, it is of paramount importance in medical research. Here, we present a systematic computational method to identify potential novel(More)
Methods for computing similarities among genes have attracted increasing attention for their applications in gene clustering, gene expression data analysis, protein interaction prediction and evaluation. To address the need for automatically computing functional similarities of genes, an important class of methods that computes functional similarities by(More)
Adverse drug reactions (ADRs) are caused by interactions between drugs or their metabolites and specific proteins. Knowledge of these proteins is important for facilitating mechanistic research of ADRs and new drug discovery. Here, we identified 41 network modules from an ADR-protein network; analysed the function of each module; revealed the potential(More)
Drug side effects, or adverse drug reactions (ADRs), have become a major public health concern and often cause drug development failure and withdrawal. Some ADRs always occur concomitantly. Therefore, identifying these ADRs and their common molecular basis can better promote their prevention and treatment. In this paper we predicted the potential proteins(More)
