          About This Event

          Summary

           

          Abstract: Proving that a drug that has seen human patients also works in another indication adds clear value for patients. The question for informatics is can these predictions be made systematically with precision. We will discuss two recent methods that add to this debate. The first one uses genetics associations (from Genome Wide Association Studies – GWAS) to find new indications for drugs some of which are being validated experimentally. The second one frames the side effects of drugs as pharmacological effects, relies on the observation that many drugs that treat a disease have similar side effects, and then predicts other drugs with similar side effects as potential treatments for the disease. In addition, we will discuss other techniques that use text mining, compound-based methods such as connectivity map, electronic health records, and other public data. We hope that the field of drug repositioning will continue to be a showcase for informatics techniques in medicine.
