Association tool that can be used to search for drugs given a specific disease, or other associations.
an online text-mining system for identifying relationships between human diseases, genes, proteins, drugs, metabolites, toxins, metabolic pathways, organs, tissues, subcellular organelles, positive health effects, negative health effects, drug actions, Gene Ontology terms, MeSH terms, ICD-10 medical codes, biological taxonomies and chemical taxonomies. PolySearch 2.0 supports a generalized ‘Given X, find all associated Ys’ query, where X and Y can be selected from the aforementioned biomedical entities. For example, ‘Find all associated diseases with Bisphenol A’. PolySearch 2.0 searches for associations against comprehensive collections of free-text corpora, including local versions of MEDLINE abstracts, PubMed Central full-text articles, Wikipedia full-text articles, and US Patent application abstracts. PolySearch 2.0 also searches 14 widely used, text-rich biological databases such as UniProt, DrugBank and HMDB to improve its accuracy and coverage. PolySearch 2.0 maintains an extensive thesaurus of biological terms and exploits the latest search engine technology to rapidly retrieve relevant articles and databases records. PolySearch 2.0 also generates, ranks, and annotates associative candidates and present results with relevancy statistics and highlighted key sentences to facilitate user interpretation.
