Drug repositioning has been regarded as one of the most promising strategies for translational medicine. Common efforts to find new uses for existing drugs depend on text mining (Andronis et al., 2011), chemical genetics (Iorio et al., 2010) and network analysis (Dudley et al., 2011). In the April 2012 issue, Sanseau et al. proposed the use of genome-wide association studies (GWAS) for drug repositioning. Source: Wang and Zhang, 2013.
