European Molecular Biology Laboratory Scientists Predict New Uses for Existing Drugs from their Side Effects


7/11/2008 8:08:57 AM

ScienceDaily — Researchers from the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) discovered a new way to make use of drugs' unwanted side effects. They developed a computational method that compares how similar the side effects of different drugs are and predicts how likely the drugs act on the same target molecule. The study, published in Science this week, hints at new uses of marketed drugs.
