Due to the dramatic increase on available information on the Web, the users are in continuous demand of the appearance of new tools in order to find, filtrate and analyze the huge amount of data returned via search engines. In this paper we present a new tool for Web searching which starts from a small set of examples labeled by the user. From them a process of selection and weighting of words to form new queries ensures the recovery of more relevant documents. The validation of the implemented system was carried out by searches related to biomedicine, particularly related to cancer and its treatments.
