A Novel Feature Selection Approach to Classify Breast Cancer Drug using Optimized Grey Wolf Algorithm

Vol. 22  No. 9  pp. 258-270


Cancer has become a common disease for the past two decades throughout the globe and there is significant increase of cancer among women. Breast cancer and ovarian cancers are more prevalent among women. Majority of the patients approach the physicians only during their final stage of the disease. Early diagnosis of cancer remains a great challenge for the researchers. Although several drugs are being synthesized very often, their multi-benefits are less investigated. With millions of drugs synthesized and their data are accessible through open repositories. Drug repurposing can be done using machine learning techniques. We propose a feature selection technique in this paper, which is novel that generates multiple populations for the grey wolf algorithm and classifies breast cancer drugs efficiently. Leukemia drug dataset is also investigated and Multilayer perceptron achieved 96% prediction accuracy. Three supervised machine learning algorithms namely Random Forest classifier, Multilayer Perceptron and Support Vector Machine models were applied and Multilayer perceptron had higher accuracy rate of 97.7% for breast cancer drug classification.
