MCMC scheme

We can define the density $ \pi$ over the graphs of drug-adverse reaction relationship by

$\displaystyle \pi(G) \propto \prod_{(A,B)} \Phi(m_{A,B}, E_{A,B})

where the product is over all the association candidate $ (A,B)$ indicated by the graph $ G$. Here we use the Metropolis algorithm to update the graph $ G$ by randomly adding or deleting an edge between drug and adverse reaction (i.e., a drug-adverse reaction relationship).

Dataset. The present dataset freq.csv consists of 13343 rows. The first 22 columns of 0's and 1's indicates the subset $ A$ of the reported medical products (drug), and the next 27 columns of 0's and 1's indicates the subset $ B$ of the adversed reactions, and the last column shows the frequency $ N_{A,B}$ of event. The names of drug and the medical terms describing the adverse events can be found in the separate files drug.csv and reac.csv.

Original database. The dataset freq.csv is extracted from the US database from January 2004 to March 2005 available by FDA; see the link to AERS.
