Table 5 Evaluation of the database content in comparison to the Genetic Association Database (GAD).

From: The Autoimmune Disease Database: a dynamically compiled literature-derived database

multiple sclerosis 57 84% (48/57) 82 73% (60/82)
Graves' disease 14 100% (14/14) 27 66% (18/27)
Addison's Disease 2 100% (2/2) 3 100% (3/3)
sarcoidosis 10 100% (10/10) 13 69% (9/13)
myasthenia gravis 6 66% (4/6) 8 38% (3/8)
alopecia areata 4 75% (3/4) 4 75% (3/4)
Crohn's Disease 14 93% (13/14) 29 93% (27/29)
Psoriasis 16 94% (15/16) 30 73% (22/30)

Inflamatory bowel Disease 17 94% (16/17) 24 92% (22/24)
Average - 91% - 78%
  1. The evaluation results of the AIDB content using gene disease associations referenced in the GAD for the diseases 'multiple sclerosis' and 'Graves' disease' as well as 10 randomly selected diseases are shown. Column 1 lists the number of gene-disease associations extracted out of the GAD database. Column 2 shows the number of these associations found in the AIDB. Column 3 lists the number of PubMed references in GAD and column 4 lists the number of correctly retrieved PubMed references in the AIDB.
