Build applications faster with our simple but powerful APIs.
The DrugBank API has several endpoints to support different types of searches and filtering. Powered by the DrugBank database, our API is updated daily by our team of biochemists, pharmacists, and scientists.
Look up information about drug ingredients. Each drug has detailed information including common synonyms, descriptions of the indication, mechanism of action, toxicity, and the chemical structure. Ingredient information has been curated from multiple sources including FDA labels and 7,233 references.
Coverage of every FDA and Health Canada approved drug. Includes brand name, labeller, dosage, dose form, route of administration, and the marketing period.
The products are linked with the drug ingredients and drug-drug interactions.
The Drug Names Autocomplete API lets you build search forms so your users can quickly find drug products. The API returns a list of drugs/product information suitable for use with autocomplete forms.
Quickly find a list of potential drug-drug interactions between any of the ingredients in a list of drug products.
Search for drugs by drug indication, or list indications relevant to a particular drug. Drug Indications are organized in a hierarchy and can be form specific to broad terms. It is possible to perform searches like: "Find all drugs that treat a respiratory disease", or "Find all drugs that are used to treat Asthma."
Drug Indications include the type of indication, the name of the condition associated with the indication and associated ICD10 or MedDRA identifiers.
