Abstract [en]

Counterfeit pharmaceutical products are a big threat to the society not onlybecause of the monetary losses incurred by ineffective drugs but also because ofthe adverse effects they cause to consumers.It is becoming increasingly more common for these products to find their way tothe customer through websites that are marketed in the open Internet.We work with key stakeholders from research and industry to develop approachesto solve the three key problems of discovering new websites that sell theseproducts, automatically identifying websites that sell these products and classifythem into meaningful groups of websites that can be analysed together.The project also produced a working prototype tool that is used in order to testthese approaches identified and documents/analyse the results produced by thetool.It was observed that the use of user dictionary based mechanisms to discover,identify and rank these websites demonstrated the capability to produce exceptionallyhigh quality results.
