The relationship between small molecules and proteins has attracted attention from the biomedical research community. In this pa- per a text mining method of extracting small- molecule and protein pairs from natural text is presented, based on a semi-supervised ma- chine learning approach. The technique has been applied to the complete collection of MEDLINE abstracts and pairs were extracted and evaluated. The results show the feasibility of the bootstrapping system, which will subse- quently be further investigated and improved.
