Abstract (in Japanese) (See Japanese page) 
(in English) Medical experts need to properly identify the adverse effects. One may consider reading of package inserts is helpful, since they are sole authorized documents. Moreover, in order to identify the adverse effect, patients’ explanation about what they feel are usually helpful. However, the problem is that there is an semantic gap between patients’ explanation and descriptions about adverse effects in package inserts. In this study, we utilize information in drug information sheets and techniques of topic maps. We propose the method to extract adverse effect information from drug information sheets, to associate it with patients’ explanation, and to create a database which has the topic map structure. We assume three elements to describe both patients’ symptom explanations and initial symptom descriptions in drug information sheets.
