Adverse drug reactions data

I have noted that OpenPHACTS is supposed to include adverse drug reactions data [1] and I wonder a bit about how to access it. I have quickly looked at the API documentation [2] but not found anything that looks promising. Is it not there or am I simply not seeing it?

We've included data from the Adverse Events Reporting System (AERS) to the "Compound Information" API call. You can find data for the given example for this API call on the developer portal. The data is marked with "inDataset": "http://aers.data2semantics.org/". With the same API call, you can also retrieve drug interaction data from DrugBank. But I must admit, the location of the data is a bit hidden when looking at the API call descriptions only. We'll update those.
