Tokeniserad produktinformation för centralt godkända läkemedel inom EU (extraherad 2022-05-03)


The text corpus was compiled on May 3, 2022, by scripted downloading of all available English language product information files for all centrally approved medicinal products within the EU, from the European Medicines Agency website. Package Leaflet (PL) and Summary of product characteristics (SmPC) documents for each medicinal product, excluding multiplicate documents for medicinal products with more than one strength or pharmaceutical preparation, were used. The PDF files were scraped using the pdfplumber version 0.6.1 package in Python 3.8.10 to extract all text except page numbering, headers, and footers. Line breaks and special characters (excluding punctuation characters) were removed, and punctuation was added to sentences where this was missing (such as headings) to avoid false aggregation. All paragraphs were tokenized on a sentence level using the Natural Language Toolkit (NLTK) version 3.7 tokenizer This database contains sentence-level tokenized product infomation from all centrally approved medicinal products within the EU (May 3, 2022) including Summary of product characteristics (SmPC) and Package leaflet (PL) documents. A total of 1258 medicinal products were initially included, of which 5 were subsequently excluded due to document compatibility issues. From these, a total of 783 K sentences were extracted from PL and SmPC documents.
