Abstract  To represent the semantics of pharmaceutical products and facilitate drug information integration, this paper develops a knowledge representation method for pharmaceutical products based on the frame work of concept, relationship and attribute. In evaluation, this method is applied to represent the drug products’ records which are initially organized in a relational database. In the case study, it shows that the method has the advances in pharmaceutical concept standardization and semantic relationship representation. At last, the perspectives of this method are discussed including its applications in health informatization and drug information dissemination online.
