I have done differential expression analysis after which I have constructed the PPI network using the list of DEGs and then used Cytoscape to find the list of hub genes. Now how can I validate that these hub genes and the network that they form is indeed implicated in the disease I am studying. I also read that PPI network formed by hub genes can be used a prime drug targets. Is there any database that will take in the hub gene network and give us a list of drugs that might be used to target them?

Have you tried Open Targets? With your hub genes individually.
