[bioontology-support] MedDRA Ontology

We are looking into using the MedDRA Ontology to code adverse events for one of our projects.

If I understand it correctly, the dictionary is updated twice a year (though seems to be a few version behind)?

What happens if a code becomes inactive? Eg we select 'ABC DVB' but 'ABC DVB' becomes inactive in the latest version? Will we be left with a term that is not current anymore?

If I understand it correctly, all levels of the dictionary are searched. Is that correct?

Is it possible to get to a specific level eg HLTor SOC?
