Instem Presenting on Use of Legacy Data and Literature Analytics to Understand Digestive Tract Toxicity

CONSHOHOCKEN, PA – June 4, 2013 - - Instem, a leading provider of IT solutions to the global early development healthcare market, is pleased to announce that Instem Life Scientist, Stephanie Berry, will be presenting at the 32nd Annual Society of Toxicologic Pathology Meeting and Symposium in Portland, Oregon.

The poster presentation, “Using Legacy Data and Literature Analytics to Understand Digestive Tract Toxicity”, will discuss how Instem's visual analytics platform, OmniViz can be used to find safety signals in large volumes of unstructured text and how its Safety Intelligence Program, Instem’s  Reference Knowledgebase, expands the understanding of compounds flagged as possible toxicants.

Poster co-author and Director of the Safety Intelligence Program with Instem, Jane Reed commented, “This research shows how Instem’s approach to integrating public domain literature and other data sources provides real insight into a topic such as inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). This enables researchers to carry out a rapid and comprehensive “background check” into what existing drugs are known to be associated with IBD. This approach can easily be applied to any other system toxicity, which is key for pharmaceutical companies looking to improve attrition rates by ensuring good visibility of legacy data.”

The Society of Toxicologic Pathology (STP) is a nonprofit association of pathologists and other scientists who focus on advancing pathology as it applies to changes in pharmacological, chemical, or environmental agents.

“Using Legacy Data and Literature Analytics to Understand Digestive Tract Toxicity” will be on display at the STP Exhibit Hall from Sunday evening, June 16th through Wednesday afternoon, June 19th, 2013.

This year’s annual meeting is expected to attract over 550 attendees and 28 exhibitors from around the world to the Oregon Convention Center. Instem will be exhibiting at booth #114 during the Exhibit Hall which will be open from Monday, June 17th through Wednesday, June 19th.
