Hi Anita,

Thank you for contacting us. Unfortunately, due to licensing restrictions, we're not allowed to offer downloads of the MEDDRA ontology source file via our REST service, or from the BioPortal website.

You may want to try contacting MedDRA directly and see if they can offer assistance with your inquiry:<;!!AoaiBx6H!haX442Qh98x_ZBLGbqm9nddtUCxsdHPlCB0vH7COpsnLULCUjIFn-FMOeAtrBQPANg$>
