During our latest LAERTES meeting Rich brought up that the automatic extraction of drug/event pairs as described by Avillach et al. pulls out a lot of animal studies results in addition to human results.
This thread is to discuss how to handle these data.
I would like to include these data, as they can be useful for investigation, however, I believe that they should be clearly delineated. Then if users do not want to use animal studies results they can easily exclude them. In fact, if this is the normal use case then we can set up LAERTES so that you must explicitly request to include animal results. This way it does not mistakenly get used by unwitting users.
