Bottom Line: Traditional information retrieval (IR) techniques, when applied to large databases such as PubMed, often return large, unmanageable lists of citations that do not fulfill the searcher's information needs.In this approach, firstly Kullback-Leibler Divergence combined with mutual information metric is used to extract disease salient information.Then deep search based on depth first search (DFS) is applied to find hidden (indirect) relations between biomedical entities.

ABSTRACT
The volume of published biomedical literature on disease related knowledge is expanding rapidly. Traditional information retrieval (IR) techniques, when applied to large databases such as PubMed, often return large, unmanageable lists of citations that do not fulfill the searcher's information needs. In this paper, we present an approach to automatically construct disease related knowledge summarization from biomedical literature. In this approach, firstly Kullback-Leibler Divergence combined with mutual information metric is used to extract disease salient information. Then deep search based on depth first search (DFS) is applied to find hidden (indirect) relations between biomedical entities. Finally random walk algorithm is exploited to filter out the weak relations. The experimental results show that our approach achieves a precision of 60% and a recall of 61% on salient information extraction for Carcinoma of bladder and outperforms the method of Combo.

Mentions: Box 1 is a part of the relations returned by random walk with depth 4. The whole relations network is shown in Figure 4, which illustrates the information of the seed topic Carcinoma of bladder, which displays genes, drugs, proteins, chemical elements, or symptoms in different colors. The degree of the relation strength is shown by thick or thin edges.
