In this world of ever-increasing volume and variety of textual data, there is a growing variety of tools and technologies to handle and get value from these data. We hear about a potentially bewildering barrage of AI technologies including Natural Language Processing (NLP), Machine learning, and other textual data science applications. A recent blog I read highlighted this, with a Venn covering over a dozen different disciplines (see figure below). These techniques all bring benefits, but often we just need straightforward simple access to our unstructured text data.
Empower a wide variety of users to find relevant data with high recall and precision
Linguamatics I2E brings a combination of powerful text mining tools to many pharma, biotech and healthcare users. We recognize that users’ -demands vary, and so we have created I2E Web Portals. I2E Web portals aim to engage users that want rapid easy access to scientific knowledge from both public domain knowledgebase (e.g. MEDLINE, ClinicalTrials.gov) and internal data silos, ranging from regulatory dossiers, preclinical safety data, patient/customer call transcripts, and many more.
Searching Clinical Investigator Brochures for safety assessments at a Top-10 pharma
I2E Web Portals are an out-of-the-box framework that can be customized to create a search interface that fits the needs of a specific business focus. One top-10 pharma has provided access to their silo of Clinical Investigator Brochures using an I2E Web Portal. This means the safety assessment teams can, with just a couple of clicks, get answers to questions such as:
- Which compounds have we ever studied that have shown kidney effects in any species?
- Which compounds in our pipeline have toxicology studies with >1 non-rodent species?
- Which compounds cause liver enzymes elevations in both preclinical and clinical studies?
Behind the scenes, the documents have been processed and indexed, ontologies have been applied, appropriate document regions have been identified, NLP queries run, key concepts such as chemicals and disease have been standardized, and mutations and dosages normalized. And for the users? They just get their answers.
