EU-ADR (ALERT) - Early detection of adverse drug events by integrative mining of clinical records and biomedical knowledge
Duration 02/2008 – 07/2011
Description The EU-ADR project aims to develop an innovative computerized system to detect adverse drug reactions (ADRs), supplementing spontaneous reporting systems. To achieve this objective, EU-ADR will exploit clinical data from electronic healthcare records (EHRs) of over 30 million patients from several European countries (The Netherlands, Denmark, United Kingdom, and Italy). In this project a variety of text mining, epidemiological and other computational techniques will be used to analyze the EHRs in order to detect ‘signals’ (combinations of drugs and suspected adverse events that warrant further investigation).
