CAMBRIDGE, England, and NEW YORK, Jan. 17 /PRNewswire/ -- Linguamatics Ltd, the leader in natural language processing (NLP) for life science research, and 81qd, the New York City-based health care technology consultancy, an affiliate of the Medical Knowledge Group (MKG), announce a multi-year collaboration to provide state-of-the-art product life cycle management consulting services. Central to the collaboration is the use of Linguamatics' flagship I2E software to identify and leverage business-critical insights for 81qd's clients. Applications include message mapping and opinion leader network analyses for the medical, health care, pharmaceutical, biotechnology, and life sciences fields. Financial details of the agreement were not disclosed.

"This new collaboration provides us with unrivalled capabilities in data analysis, synthesis and reporting to support our clients' unique needs. I2E's precision, accuracy and scalability are essential for developing our services in key opinion leadership sciences, physician sentiment analyses, and competitive intelligence reporting."

"81qd uniquely combines strong medical expertise with a clear vision of how to use our leading edge technology to accelerate and optimize critical life cycle management decisions in the clinical practice setting," said Roger Hale, COO and Co-founder of Linguamatics. "Our extended collaboration is an exciting step for Linguamatics, underlining our ability to impact decision- making across the pharmaceutical industry from bench to business."


Linguamatics helps organizations to maximize the value derived from information resources through effective deployment of innovative natural language processing (NLP) based technology. The versatile interactive information extraction system, I2E, helps organizations to do much more than simply cope with vast quantities of information. Its unique combination of search and text mining helps organizations to turn this information into a competitive advantage. From life sciences and healthcare to business intelligence, from media analysis to security, users mine large collections of documents, extracting relevant facts and relationships from content such as scientific papers, news feeds, patents, or business reports. Linguamatics has a rapidly growing user community with I2E deployed at most top-10 pharmaceutical companies. The company was founded in 2001, and is based in Cambridge, UK.


Linguamatics' flagship I2E technology combines four key capabilities to enable users to rapidly extract relevant facts and relationships from large document collections:
-- Natural language processing (NLP): using linguistics to quickly

interpret the meaning of unstructured text sources.

-- Search engine approach: where users can define and refine ad hoc

queries interactively, returning results in real time.

-- Intuitive reporting: presenting extracted information with drill-down

to supporting evidence.

-- Domain knowledge plug-in: ability to provide semantic search

capabilities with domain knowledge such as ontologies, taxonomies and


I2E features a client-server architecture built using industry-standard Java and C for use by single users, project teams, or in enterprise-wide deployments. Organizations have full control over source content to be mined, definition of queries and results output.
