Qihoo 360, the Chinese online security solution provider which now also runs head-to-head with Baidu, announced today a new partnership with a less well-known search engine dubbed Jike.com in a deal that Qihoo’s new search initiative would have access to a drug database provided by China’s State Food and Drug Administration via Jike.com.

So while you’re searching for a certain drug approved by China’s State FDA on So.com, the service will return structured information including drug’s official name, approval number, the pharmaceutical firm’s name and address and so forth. The feature was still under private test and not made available to public yet.

The database has indexed more than 188 thousand drug entries.
