How we work

Selection of Citations

We identify the latest, most relevant publications and regulatory documents from NDA/BLA packages for manual curation.

Data Extraction

Prior to integration, the data is carefully and critically evaluated.

When appropriate, and sometimes upon discussion with the study authors, comments are attached to the data. The richness of each citation is exploited, generating a highly detailed dataset. The data is formatted for immediate use and to allow meta-analysis of multiple sources.

Data Entry and Validation

Once entered into the database, the data is validated by a second curator, who thoroughly reviews the studies and citations to make sure all the relevant information has been accurately extracted and represented.

Only then is the data released and accessible to end-users.

Data Release

This process, built over more than 20 years has been mastered by the team and is highly collaborative, allowing the knowledgebase to be updated with new information daily, and the applications to be enriched with new scientific findings as soon as they become available.

Thorough standard internal procedures support the selection, distribution, data entry, and data validation of citations in the database.
