Natural Language Processing and the Challenge of Rare Diseases

The statistics of rare disease are challenging: there are over 7,000 rare diseases, and around one in 17 people will develop a rare disease. This represents a huge unmet need, as only about 5% of the known rare diseases have a licensed treatment.

To assist with drug development for rare diseases, it’s critical to capture the valuable information buried in unstructured text sources, such as full text literature and medical notes.

Join CCC and Linguamatics on Thursday, November 5 for half hour webinar where we will discuss the value of natural language processing to create the landscape of information around the natural history of disease, pathophysiology, and genotype-phenotype associations; and illustrate with use cases from pharma and healthcare organizations.
