Please remember that Drugs can :
- have a specific ATC (that is different to the ATC molecules)
- have multiple molecules with different ATC
That's important for the explanation.

Actually, FreeDiams calculates allergies throught :
- DrugUID -> one uid == one allergy
- Drug ATC -> one ATC == N allergies (all drugs with the same ATC code)
- Drug INN -> one INN == N allergies (all drugs with the specified INN)

I have to add:
- Molecule ATC -> one ATC == N allergies (all drugs that contains the
molecule ATC - which is different to the drug's ATC)

I've just finished code for (see screenshot):
- ATC class -> one ATC class (less than 7 letters) == N allergies -->
all drug's with ATC begining with the class, all drug's that contains
a molecule ATC begining with the class.
