The new terminology for female reproductive neoplasms in NCI’s Thesaurus aligns with the latest World Health Organization standards. Other updates support CDISC’s standards and are intended to further facilitate the collection, management, and analysis of research data from human clinical trials and other studies.

The latest terminology additions and changes have now been completed in NCI Thesaurus to support CDISC’s Study Data Tabulation Model and implementation guide, a standard model for submitting data from human clinical trials.

Cancer researchers and data scientists can extract terms from the NCI Thesaurus (NCIt) and generate reports to show how those terms align with other standardized vocabularies with NCI’s new Report Exporter application.
