[bioontology-support] Feedback

Hi Trish,

Typically when a Protocol is created the version of the CTCAE is what is used for that protocol.  Since we have legacy protocols calling legacy CTCAE we need a way to be able to reference the CTCAE version associated with the Protocol (e.g 3.n.n).

We were thinking of using the BioPortal ontology service to have our application point to the BioPortal NCI CTCAE and record the unique ID and other minimal data to our database so we do not need to maintain the ontologies locally.  Do you know of any institutions that are consuming the NIH BioPortal Ontology services in their applications? If so, it would be very nice to know how they are using this.

Dear Larry,

Yes, older versions of NCI CTCAE can be uploaded. The current version is 4.02 as seen in the "Versions" section on the ontology summary page: What type of tasks do you envision using the older versions for? For example, search is only enabled for the latest ontology version while browsing is available for all versions.

I would like to know if it is possible for BioPortal to load the NCI CTCAE versions.  I am not sure which version has been loaded but was hoping that all versions could be loaded (NCI CTC AE version 1, 2, 3, and 4).  Perhaps they have all been loaded but I cannot differentiate which verion of the CTC the terms are being derived from.

I am more than happy to further expand on my request.
