BACKGROUND Drug-drug interaction (DDI) is a major cause of morbidity and mortality. DDI research includes the study of different aspects of drug interactions, from in vitro pharmacology, which deals with drug interaction mechanisms, to pharmaco-epidemiology, which investigates the effects of DDI on drug efficacy and adverse drug reactions. Biomedical literature mining can aid both kinds of approaches by extracting relevant DDI signals from either the published literature or large clinical…

Extraction of Pharmacokinetic Evidence of Drug–Drug Interactions from the Literature

It is demonstrated that literature mining can aid DDI discovery by supporting automatic extraction of specific types of experimental evidence, especially in classification of evidence sentences.

Detection of drug‐drug interactions through data mining studies using clinical sources, scientific literature and social media

Different methodologies and recent advances using data mining to detect DDIs with impact on patients are reviewed, focusing on data mining of different pharmacovigilance sources and on the diverse data mining studies that use narrative text available in the scientific biomedical literature and social media.

Identifying articles relevant to drug-drug interaction: Addressing class imbalance

A two-stage cascade classifier is developed that achieves higher precision and F1 measure than other methods while maintaining similar recall, and is compared with other popular learning methods that aim to handle imbalance.

Retrieval of Drug-Drug Interactions Information from Biomedical Texts: Use of TF-IDF for Classification

This article proposes a fast text mining approach to DDI articles classification using term frequency–inverse document frequency (tf-idf) statistic, and was able to achieve F1 score value 0.69 in DDI article classification while still keeping short run-time.

Role of text mining in early identification of potential drug safety issues.

This chapter focuses on the utilization of text mining techniques in identifying potential safety issues of drugs from textual sources such as biomedical literature, consumer posts in social media, and narrative electronic medical records.

Annotation and detection of drug effects in text for pharmacovigilance

A semantically annotated corpus of 597 MEDLINE abstracts, PHAEDRA, encoding rich information on drug effects and their interactions, whose quality is assured through the use of detailed annotation guidelines and the demonstration of high levels of inter-annotator agreement.

Identifying Common Methods Used by Drug Interaction Experts for Finding Evidence About Potential Drug-Drug Interactions: Web-Based Survey

This study suggests that drug interaction experts use various keyword strategies and various database and Web resources depending on the PDDI evidence they are seeking, and suggests greater automation and standardization across search strategies could improve one’s ability to identify PDDIevidence.

Pattern Discovery from High-Order Drug-Drug Interaction Relations

The research presented in this manuscript tackles the problems of representing, quantifying, discovering, and visualizing patterns from high-order DDIs in a purely data-driven fashion within a unified graph-based framework and via unified convolution-based algorithms.

Deep Learning for High-Order Drug-Drug Interaction Prediction

D3I is the first deep model for high-order DDI prediction and can correctly predict ADRs for drug combinations in which no single drugs on their own induce ADRs, and improve ADR prediction on drug pairs by learning from all drug combinations.

Pattern Discovery from Directional High-Order Drug-Drug Interaction Relations

The research presented in this paper tackles the problems of representing, discovering, quantifying and visualizing patterns from high-order DDIs in a purely data-driven fashion and develops a convolutional scheme and its stochastic algorithm to learn the directional DDI based drug-drug similarities.



Discovery and Explanation of Drug-Drug Interactions via Text Mining

This work trains a random forest classifier to score potential DDIs based on the features of the normalized assertions extracted from the literature that relate two drugs to a gene product, and shows how the classifier can be used to explain known DDIs and to uncover new DDIs that have not yet been reported.

Mining drug targets based on microarray experiments

A system, drug target integrative miner (DruTiMine), which aims at providing a service to enhance and shorten the process of drug target discovery for pharmaceutical companies and research labs concerned with drug discovery.

Use of Text Mining for Protein Structure Prediction and Functional Annotation in Lack of Sequence Homology

A novel method that uses text mining to improve and screen genome-scale structure and shows that the literature keywords and similarity measure used here are of great value for the increasingly important field of functional annotation of new sequences with no or little sequence homology.

A Comparative Study on Feature Selection in Text Categorization

This paper finds strong correlations between the DF IG and CHI values of a term and suggests that DF thresholding the simplest method with the lowest cost in computation can be reliably used instead of IG or CHI when the computation of these measures are too expensive.

The relationship between Precision-Recall and ROC curves

It is shown that a deep connection exists between ROC space and PR space, such that a curve dominates in R OC space if and only if it dominates in PR space.

Machine learning

Machine learning addresses many of the same research questions as the fields of statistics, data mining, and psychology, but with differences of emphasis.

The results suggest that overall polymerase activity fluctuates with a peak occurring at approximately early S phase, which indicates that DNA polymerase I is subject to a complex control and imply that it has a role in both DNA synthesis and DNA repair.
