Pharmaceutical Drugs and their Targets
A pharmaceutical portfolio is a collection of drug compounds, their respective indications, and their targets. A pharmaceutical company or drugstore organizes its pharmaceutical products into one or more portfolios. A drug portfolio thus contains multiple pharmaceuticals, with each pharmaceutical containing a link to one or more of its targets in the human body. This lends itself to be modeled as a graph. Each pharmaceutical and drug target can also have a distinct set of attributes which also fit nicely into the property graph model. Within the examples found in this use case, most drug targets happen to be G-protein coupled receptors (GPCRs), for which structures have only recently been solved in the last several years.
A drug can have one or more targets. A target can be targeted by one or more drugs. This is not a complete solution for all the drug portfolio use cases but provides a good starting point.
