Stanford AI can predict negative side effects of millions of drug combinations

Often when prescribing multiple drugs, doctors have very little information to judge side effects or drug interactions, and it can take years for drug side effects to be identified, as their discovery is usually purely by chance. Stanford University researchers trained their system on over 19,000 proteins and their drug interactions, which was able to successfully predict drug interactions based solely on the prescribing combinations.

When a doctor prescribes a patient more than one drug they have no way to predict whether that combination will have an adverse side effect. A new system from Stanford University presents a novel…
