Abstract: The recent prevalence of electronic medical records offers a new way to detect the drug-side effect causality. However, this approach faces with the problem of identifying the likely causal relation between drugs and side effects in a huge space of possible relations in which many relations are not causal ones, but frequently observed. In existing work, the likely causal relation is almost detected by using frequency-based measures of drug-side effect pair co-occurrence, but the accuracy is rather low due to the frequent co-occurrence of non-causal pairs. Our key as- sumption on the causality of the drugs and side effects is that the causal- ity occurring at a medication event has an association with the therapy history of this event. The assumption is employed as a constraint in the proposed sequential-based model named Medication Therapy Progress- based Model (MTPM). Experiments show a significant improvement of accuracy from 4% to 9% when comparing MTMP and existing methods, as well as reflect the likelihood of the assumption.
