To close out this thread, the version of WHO-ART in the 1999 UMLS release is actually from 1997. Based on feedback from UMLS, this content is not updated in UMLS due to resources and priorities. MedDRA, in English and a number of translations, is kept current in the UMLS Metathesaurus, and is the required terminology for adverse reactions in the US. As I understand, the source file for WHO-ART is maintained, but is not in a common terminology format. Can you indicate the importance of accessing the latest version of WHO-ART from BioPortal in order to review the feasibility of developing a custom loader?
