[bioontology-support] bioontology-support: CTCAE version and dutch farmacotherapeutisch kompas

Hi Olga,

Thank you for your inquiry. The version of CTCAE I am seeing in BioPortal does say “5.0”. The original filename also stipulates "NCIt_CTCAE_5.0.owl”. Are you saying that the actual contents of the file contains an earlier version?

The contact for this ontology is listed as:

CTCAE Help, ncictcaehelp at<mailto:ncictcaehelp at>
Enterpise Vocabulary Services, NCIThesaurus at<mailto:NCIThesaurus at>

I am assuming they are the ones who maintain the BioPortal submissions of CTCAE. It’s best to reach out to them in case you are seeing a discrepancy between theirs and our versions of CTCAE.

Regarding your question on "farmacotherapeutisch komas”, a potential issue may be the publisher licensing terms that restrict the public distribution of the ontology. Again, the best way to approach this is to contact them directly and explain your use case to see if they would allow their ontology to be uploaded to BioPortal. Their contact form is located here:

The majority of the ontologies we host aren’t actually published and maintained by us.  They are managed directly by either their creators or their administrative staff.

If it turns out that the Healthcare Institute of Netherlands prohibits their content to be distributed openly, an alternative may be to ask them whether they would allow having your own “private" copy of "farmacotherapeutisch komas” to be hosted in BioPortal. If so, you can upload their ontology under your account and designate it as “private”, so that only you could view and interact with it.

Hope this helps.

Dear Sir/Madam,

Researchers from our institute use preferably the CTCAE codelist of the ontology service in REDCap.
However, we find out that this CTCAE in this portal is an older version (3.5).
We would really appreciate to work with a more recent version (5.0).
Is it possible for you to realize this upload?

An other question is, is there a possibility to upload a Dutch codelist  “farmacotherapeutisch komas” in the bioontology portal?.

And if yes, what should we do to realize this.

Thank you very much in advance.

Kind regards,
Olga Eriks
