英文摘要: Developing a drug from scratch is a very long and expensive process that has a small probability of success. For this reason, pharmaceutical companies are devoting their efforts to find drugs that could be repositioned. When using a drug to treat a disease is necessary to consider what adverse reactions it may cause, this is why the prediction of adverse reactions is highly related to drug repositioning. We propose the detection of overlapping communities over a biological network of chemicals, diseases and genes in order to find drug-disease pairs that could be used as basis for later drug repositioning and adverse reactions prediction analysis. Of the evaluated overlapping community detection algorithms, OSLOM got the best results, producing 724 communities from which was possible to...
