Hi Sekhar,

I think that the treatment relations that might interest you most would be "manages", "treats",
"prevents".  Then follow the "isa" relations up until you find a root area (disease / finding)
of interest.

Walking the semantic web can be a little challenging, as not every node that has a relationship
will list it explicitly.  For instance, aspirin is used for a lot of things, but might have
zero "manages" relations.  Instead, an ancestor of aspirin like "non-steroidal drug" might
have the relations.

Unless you have some experience with graphs and the umls then it might be better for you to
use some other existing dataset or api.

good luck,

Thanks Sean! Looks a little complex to navigate the relationships. Can you please cite the
most appropriate terms in this relationship that may point to therapeutic area?

Hi Sekhar,

Perhaps through relationships in the umls you could arrive at such groupings.

Hi -

Is there a publicly available database or API that can provide mapping between a therapeutic
area and drugs? For example: all the FDA approved drugs in use for the therapeutic area "Cardiovascular".
