Drug name entity recognition focuses on identifying concepts appearing in the text that correspond to a chemical substance used in pharmacology for treatment, cure, prevention or diagnosis of diseases. This paper describes a system based on ontologies for identifying the chemical substances in biomedical text. The system achieves an F-1 measure of 0.529 in the task.
