Drug data reveals sneaky side effects
Unknown drug interactions are a big problem. A recent study showed that almost half of the potentially dangerous drug interactions involved non-prescription medications or supplements. For example, over half of all the seniors in the study used at least 5 prescription medications, over-the-counter medications or supplements. That’s a whole lot of highly concentrated chemicals for one body to absorb.
With the vast array of drugs available it is practically impossible to test for interactions among all of them.
Fortunately, we have data.
Scientists recently invented a way to more accurately find interactions by matching people with similar demographic backgrounds who are and are not using the same drug. This is exactly the type of data fusion that Applied Data Lab's Fusion Project is intended to discover.
