Evaluating the Relevance of Virtual Drugs

Abstract : Information about drugs is numerous and varied, and many drugs can share the same information. Grouping drugs that have common characteristics can be useful to avoid redundancy and facilitate interoperability. Our work focused on the evaluation of the relevance of classes allowing this type of grouping: the "Virtual Drug". Thus, in this paper, we describe the process of creating this class from the data of the French Public Drug Database, which is then evaluated against the codes of the Anatomical Therapeutic Chemical classification associated with the drugs. Our evaluation showed that 99.55% of the "Virtual Drug" classes have a good intra-class consistency.
