Article Search

Search the MLM-AI database for hits on your custom search
The Article Search page gives you full access to the biologit MLM-AI scientific database with a familiar query interface. From here you can test a query, preview results and create monitors from those queries.

Creating Searches

Searches can be composed using logical operators like AND,OR, NOT.
  • Use the ( and ) brackets to group terms together
  • To search for matches of a multi-word term use quotes. Ex: "liver damage"
  • You can end a term with * to match similar words.
    • Ex: pregnan* will match pregnant, pregnancy, pregnancies...
Example Query
Search for any query terms with an OR query
acetaminophen OR paracetamol OR panadol
Search for multi-word terms with quotes
"liver damage" OR "liver toxicity"
Search for keywords AND the presence of one or more events
(acetaminophen OR paracetamol OR panadol) AND ("liver damage" OR "liver toxicity" OR "liver failure")
  • Search term queries can also be created via advance search functionality by clicking on the button located right beside the search bar.
    Which will then open up a dialog box where users can add keywords and conditions of choice. This screen can also be used for constructing large, complex or cumbersome queries

Select Dates and Source Databases

Use the Start/End dates to specify the date range to search. This will retrieve articles by publication or entry date found within the date range.
Alternatively use the range buttons to search last week, month or year.
Each data source available can be toggled using the selectors.


Queries are limited to 1,000 results. When this limit is reached you will be informed with the warning below. Try reducing results with a shorter date range or a less broad query.

Create Monitors from Searches

A monitor can be created straight from this page based on the details entered in the form: the monitor will use the same search string and databases selected by your search.
Click the "pill" button on the top right of the screen shown below:
The monitor configuration is similar to the default monitor configuration steps only the search string and database information will be pre-loaded into the monitor creation form.

Searching for Adverse Terms

In MLM-AI, adverse events are captured by AI tags indicative of suspected events, animal studies and special situations. The AI tags are designed to replace long lists of adverse "keywords" such as adverse event, adverse reaction, etc.
Where possible it is recommended to apply the AI tags in place of explicit lists of adverse terms.
