[bioontology-support] CTCAE Ontology

Since Jennifer Vendetti is away until next week, is anybody else able to address this question? CTCAE v5 goes into effect in April.

Thank you,

Hi Shanda,

I’m putting you in contact with Jennifer from BioPortal. IT looks like they need CTCAE v5 in OWL format to be able to put it up on their website, but it is not available in this format on the CTCAE page yet. Would the CaDSR people be able to do that?

Thank you,

Hello Sebastien,

I looked at the ontology you mention below in BioPortal. We are currently serving the ontology in OWL format. I navigated to the home page that’s listed in the Details pane (<>). It’s unclear to me whether or not NCI has made version 5 available in OWL format (BioPortal doesn’t consume xls format).

I did some googling and ended up here:<>

I can see an OWL distribution for version 4.03, but not 5.0. Do you happen to know who at NCI we could contact to find out more about whether they plan to publish the ontology in OWL? If it’s available somewhere in OWL format, we’re certainly willing to upload.

Kind regards,

This is concerning the CTCAE Ontology. Right now only v4 is available. NCI has made v5 available at the end of 2017 and plans to enforce its use for new research on April 1st 2018. We use BioPortal's CTCAE Ontology through REDCap. Are there any plans to upload v5 on BioPortal and if so how soon will this be done?

Thank you,
