Leveraging graph topology and semantic context for pharmacovigilance through twitter streams

BMC Bioinformatics
PMCID: 5073861
PMID: 27766937
DOI: 10.1186/s12859-016-1220-5

[…] Item Gamma Poisson Shrinking (MGPS) algorithms [] and the World Health Organization has used Bayesian Confidence Propagation Neural Networks (BCPNN) at its Upsalla Monitoring Center []. Additionally, empirical Bayes screening [], odds ratios [], and incidence report ratios [] have been successfully implemented. Association rule mining [] and biclustering [] have also been explored to detect pairs […]


Application of Pharmacovigilance Methods in Occupational Health Surveillance: Comparison of Seven Disproportionality Metrics

PMCID: 3440466
PMID: 22993712
DOI: 10.5491/SHAW.2012.3.2.92

[…] two Bayesian methods that have been described to date (n°7: BCPNN), which is used by the WHO collaborative centre on pharmacovigilance (UMC) on the international pharmacovigilance database. Only the Empirical Bayes Screening (EBS) method, also named "Dumouchel method", was not tested, as it was more complex to implement.Another point that should be kept in mind is that the same method may be used […]
