Cloud Based Angle for Clinical Trial Text Mining
July 10, 2012
Reuters recently posted a news release on its Web site entitled “Linguamatics Launches Cloud-based Clinical Trials Text Mining Solution.”
According to the release, Linguamatics, a provider of cutting edge enterprise text mining software, is now providing access to clinical trials via their I2E text mining platform available on the Cloud. This solution has proven to be a valuable tool when 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.
When discussing how I2E works, the article states:
“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 recognize relevant concepts and relationships however they are expressed’.”
The medical field is certainly an industry where text mining solutions like 12E are bound to make a huge difference in new cutting edge research by allowing them to access information that was not previously available.
