[bioontology-support] MedDRA API

Hi Paul,

We import UMLS terminologies into BioPortal, which is how MedDRA gets into our system:

I don’t know how the version distributed with the UMLS terminologies might differ from what’s offered at<>.  Normally the UMLS publishes release notes that detail terminology versions.  For their 2015AB release, it looks like they included MedDRA 18.0:

I noticed that BioPortal is behind by one release of the UMLS (we’re currently on 2015AA).  I’ve entered an issue in our tracker to import the latest 2015AB (issue # NCBO-1711).

You can use BioPortal’s REST API ( to access all of the MedDRA data in our system.

Hope that helps.

This refers to a REST API for MedDRA and then redirects to here:

Is this an API that allows me to connect to the resources provided by MedDRA here?

Kind regards
