We present an approach for the automatic classification of Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy data of biofluids with respect to drug induced organ toxicities. Classification is realized by an Ensemble of Support Vector Machines, trained on different subspaces according to a modified version of Random Subspace Sampling. Features most likely leading to an improved classification accuracy are favored by the determination of subspaces, resulting in an improved classification accuracy of base classifiers within the Ensemble. An experimental evaluation based on a challenging, real task from pharmacology proves the increased classification accuracy of the proposed Ensemble creation approach compared to single SVM classification and classical Random Subspace Sampling.
