Learn more about how MLM-AI works and key concepts that deliver more efficient workflows.
To introduce how MLM-AI makes Medical Literature Monitoring more efficient, below is an outline of the traditional workflow for this process:
A typical literature monitoring workflow comprises these stages:
- One or more databases (PubMed, Embase, Google Scholar, etc.) are searched, each with their specific query language
- Results (title and abstract) are extracted and collated together
- Articles are de-duplicated, removing repeated and articles previously seen on past runs
- Abstracts are then screened for relevant safety events
- If screen is positive, the article may then proceed for a full text review
- Results are quality controlled (QC) and exported for further processing downstream
All the above steps were taking into account when building MLM-AI's integrated workflow:
- MLM-AI automates search and de-duplication of results from multiple sources, presenting a single, clean view of all results
- Using AI Tags (see below) users can rank and filter articles for faster screening. This further removes time from processing large volumes of articles
- Finally, the remaining steps of the workflow are performed from within a single tool, with all actions recorded into a permanent audit log
In MLM-AI, the screening process has the following steps:
- Once configured, Monitors produce results periodically, or on request.

Why "suspected" adverse events?
A "suspected" event indicates an event may have been described in the full text and indirectly mentioned in the abstract and was considered by MLM-AI as worth further inspection.
Suspected events are drug-agnostic: they can refer to any drug or treatment mentioned in the abstract.
