PEARL has utilized the Cancer Biomedical Informatics Grid (caBIG) to develop the capability to post clinical trial data.
PEARL has created metadata in the Cancer Data Standards Repository (caDSR), NCI CBIIT’s metadata repository. The caDSR uses the NCI’s Enterprise Vocabulary Service (EVS) which is a hierarchical ontology providing the semantic linkage to metadata.
The metadata or common data elements (CDEs) used to follow the International Organization for Standardization and the International Electrotechnical Commission 11179 standards which are the recognized standard for constructing and maintaining a metadata repository.
