Abstract: 

This paper describes the Drug-Drug Interaction Extraction from Drug Labels Track, part of the 2019 Text Analysis Conference (TAC). Participants were provided with an annotated set of interactions-related sections of drug labels and challenged with: (1) extracting mentions of the precipitants and effects of drug-drug interactions at the sentence level; (2) identifying (typed) relations between interacting substances ; (3) normalizing mentions and relations to several standard terminologies ; and (4) determining the unique set of drug-drug interactions across all provided sections of a drug label. Four teams submitted at least one run, with 10 submissions in total.
