The FDA is inviting web developers to tap into publicly available data on adverse drug events, recalls and labeling and assess their impact for drug research.
The OpenFDA Developer Challenge, announced Tuesday, offers a choice of two options: to determine if an algorithm could be used to automatically identify spikes in adverse events or to develop a model to categorize adverse event language in the warning sections of structured product labeling.
