This interest has been expressed by some of my colleagues here at Pitt 
as well. Looking at the webpage, it looks like the drug column uses UNII 
preferred terms and the label sections use standard syntax. Not sure 
what is used for the string names in the biomarker and therapeutic area 
columns but they look easy to map - can someone hazard a guess? Once we 
know that, I could script a database table from the html table  of  
ucm083378.htm and create mappings to the referenced sections in 
LinkedSPL for drug products containing the active moieties listed in the 
Drug column. Would interested folks please provide a use case that I 
will use along with the use case for my colleagues to make the mapping 
immediately useful?

best,
-Rich
