LINGUAMATICS LAUNCHES CLOUD-BASED CLINICAL TRIALS TEXT MINING SOLUTION
New service enables in-depth analysis of clinical trials data using state-of-the-art text mining software
(Cambridge, England and Boston, USA – June 11th, 2012)
Linguamatics is pleased to announce that they are providing access to clinical trials data with their market-leading I2E text mining platform. This new service, adding data from the ClinicalTrials.gov database, will be available on the Cloud via Linguamatics’ I2E OnDemand platform, which was launched in 2011 with access to MEDLINE data. The addition of clinical trials data by Linguamatics reflects the company’s strategy to add further content access options to their text mining and knowledge discovery solutions.
ClinicalTrials.gov is a well-established and highly regarded registry and results database of federally and privately supported clinical trials conducted in the United States and around the world. The database provides information about a trial's purpose, study design descriptions, enrollment numbers, locations, and sponsor and collaborator names.
I2E has been shown to be a valuable, highly effective tool in mining clinical trials data for decision support in biomedical research, clinical trials study design, site selection and competitive intelligence. Users are able to extract valuable insights and monitor the progress of potential new medicines in ways not previously possible.
I2E accurately identifies and extracts information from the free text fields of resources such as ClinicalTrials.gov, whilst also exploiting its existing structure and associated metadata. According to David Milward, CTO, Linguamatics, the company intends to further extend its hosted content sources to full-text patent applications and grants, and exploit links across the data sets. “Access to ClinicalTrials.gov is a strong addition to our existing content options. As well as each data source being valuable in itself, I2E provides the ability to link across diverse sources using natural language processing to recognise relevant concepts and relationships however they are expressed".
ClinicalTrials.gov is a highly respected source of information about federally and privately supported clinical trials, provided by the National Institutes of Health (NIH), a part of the U.S. Department of Health and Social Services. For more information, visit www.clinicaltrials.gov.
Linguamatics is the world leader in deploying innovative natural language processing (NLP) based text mining for high-value knowledge discovery and decision support and is used by top commercial, academic and government organisations, including nine of the top ten global pharmaceutical companies. I2E is available as an in-house enterprise system and as software as a service on the cloud.
Typical applications in pharmaceuticals, biotechnology and healthcare include:
Business intelligence applications include social media mining and sentiment analysis.
