On the Prediction of Clusters for Adverse Reactions and Allergies on Antibiotics for Children to Improve Biomedical Decision Making

Abstract : In this paper, we report on a study to discover hidden patterns in survey results on adverse reactions and allergy (ARA) on antibiotics for children. Antibiotics are the most commonly prescribed drugs in children and most likely to be associated with adverse reactions. Record on adverse reactions and allergy from antibiotics considerably affect the prescription choices. We consider this a biomedical decision problem and explore hidden knowledge in survey results on data extracted from the health records of children, from the Health Center of Osijek, Eastern Croatia. We apply the K-means algorithm to the data in order to generate clusters and evaluate the results. As a result, some antibiotics form their own clusters. Consequently, medical professionals can investigate these clusters, thus gaining useful knowledge and insight into this data for their clinical studies.
