CodeMapper: semiautomatic coding of case definitions. A contribution from the ADVANCE project

PMCID: 5575526
PMID: 28657162
DOI: 10.1002/pds.4245

[…] adings (MeSH), Medical Dictionary for Regulatory Activities (MedDRA), Systematized Nomenclature of Medicine—Clinical Terms (SNOMED‐CT), ICD‐9 CM, ICD‐10 CM, ICPC‐2, and CTv3. Our text‐indexing engine Peregrine uses this dictionary to identify medical concepts in the case definition. CodeMapper provides two operations to improve the sensitivity of the mapping by expanding a concept to more general […]


Recognition of chemical entities: combining dictionary based and grammar based approaches

J Cheminform
PMCID: 4331686
PMID: 25810767

[…] tion system), in a ratio of 1.26:1. To create a corpus with the same ratio to train and test our system and allow comparison of results, we took all true relations in which the concepts were found by Peregrine and the NLP module, and randomly added false co-occurrence relations generated by Peregrine and the NLP module, until the ratio of 1.26:1 was reached.Table  shows the performance of our know […]


Generic Information Can Retrieve Known Biological Associations: Implications for Biomedical Knowledge Discovery

PLoS One
PMCID: 3834066
PMID: 24260124
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0078665

[…] The Open Source concept recognition software Peregrine scans free-text and resolves homonyms and maps ambiguous terminology and spellings to unique biomedical concepts – (software available at Peregrine uses a […]


Using rule based natural language processing to improve disease normalization in biomedical text

PMCID: 3756254
PMID: 23043124
DOI: 10.1136/amiajnl-2012-001173

[…] lexicon, as the identifiers and symbols from different databases are not in accordance with each other, and there is not always a direct one-to-one mapping between different database identifiers. The Peregrine system analyzes the terms of the lexicon and prunes it by removing highly ambiguous terms and the terms that cause false positives.Disambiguation and filtering: determining which meaning of […]
