A.I. predicts side effects for millions of drug combos

July 12, 2018View for printing

Researchers have created an artificial intelligence system for predicting, not simply tracking, potential side effects from drug combinations.

Last month alone, 23 percent of Americans took two or more prescription drugs, according to one CDC estimate. Furthermore, 39 percent over age 65 take five or more, a number that's increased three-fold in the last several decades. And if that isn't surprising enough, try this one: in many cases, doctors have no idea what side effects might arise from adding another drug to a patient's personal pharmacy.
