NutriChem 2.0

The NutriChem 2.0 server is an extension of NutriChem 1.0 server. The current version contains data in two sections: "Food-Disease Associations" (including food-compound and food-disease associations) and "Drug-Food Interactons" (see below for details). NutriChem provides a foundation for understanding mechanistically the consequences of eating behaviors on health and therapeutic efforts.

The "Food-Disease Associations" section of NutriChem 2.0 is collection of data generated by text mining of 21 million MEDLINE abstracts, with information that links plant-based foods with their small molecule components and human disease phenotypes. It contains text-mined data for 18,478 pairs of 1,772 plant-based foods and 7,898 phytochemicals, and 6,242 pairs of 1,066 plant-based foods and 751 diseases. In addition, it includes predicted associations for 548 phytochemicals and 252 diseases.

The (New!) "Drug-Food Interactions" section of NutriChem 2.0 contains extensive information on interactions between drugs and plant-based foods identified through the shared protein targets between dietary molecules and drugs. Thus, it offers a global view of the associations between diet and drug targets, drug-metabolising enzymes, drug transporters and carriers currently deposited in DrugBank.
