Dietary supplements are used by a large portion of the population, but information on their safety is hard to find. [...] Key Method We fine-tune the contextualized word representations of BERT-large using labeled data from the PDDI corpus. We then process 22M abstracts from PubMed using this model, and extract evidence for 55946 unique interactions between 1923 supplements and 2727 drugs (precision: 0.77, recall: 0.96), demonstrating that learning the task of DDI classification transfers successfully to the…Expand

Assessing the Enrichment of Dietary Supplement Coverage in the UMLS
Objective: To assess the need for additional coverage of dietary supplements (DS) in the UMLS by investigating 1) the overlap between the iDISK DS ingredient terminology and the UMLS, and 2) theExpand
Interactive Extractive Search over Biomedical Corpora
A light-weight query language is introduced that does not require the user to know the details of the underlying linguistic representations, and instead to query the corpus by providing an example sentence coupled with simple markup, allowing for rapid exploration, development and refinement of user queries.

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.

Extracting drug-drug interactions from literature using a rich feature-based linear kernel approach
This work proposes an efficient and scalable system using a linear kernel to identify DDI information and demonstrates that when equipped with a rich set of lexical and syntactic features, a linear SVM classifier is able to achieve a competitive performance in detecting DDIs. Expand
Drug drug interaction extraction from the literature using a recursive neural network
A recursive neural network model uses a position feature, a subtree containment feature, and an ensemble method to improve the performance of DDI extraction and demonstrates that this model can automatically extract DDIs better than existing models. Expand
Discovering drug–drug interactions: a text-mining and reasoning approach based on properties of drug metabolism
A novel approach that integrates text mining and automated reasoning to derive DDIs is proposed that can uncover potential DDIs with scientific evidences explaining the mechanism of the interactions. Expand
Toward a complete dataset of drug-drug interaction information from publicly available sources
It is thought that systems that provide access to the comprehensive lists, such as APIs into RxNorm, should be careful to inform users that the lists may be incomplete with respect to PDDIs that drug experts suggest clinicians be aware of. Expand
A linguistic rule-based approach to extract drug-drug interactions from pharmacological documents
This work proposes the first integral solution for the automatic extraction of DDI from biomedical texts using a hybrid linguistic approach that combines shallow parsing and syntactic simplification with pattern matching. Expand
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.

Leveraging syntactic and semantic graph kernels to extract pharmacokinetic drug drug interactions from biomedical literature
Experimental results showed that the proposed approach could extract PK DDIs from literature effectively, which significantly enhanced the performance of the original all-path graph kernel based on dependency structure. Expand
