Hi, Oktie,

Thanks much for your note. The LinkedCT is a very nice RDF dataset for ClinicalTrials.gov and we have explored it a little bit, which as you pointed out contains a subset of UK clinical trials. We were wondering whether there is a comprehensive dataset available for the UK trials.

BTW, do you have a schema available for the LinkedCT dataset?

Thanks,

-Guoqian

Hi Guoqian,

At least a subset (or perhaps the majority) of the trials performed in the U.K. are registered on ClinicalTrials.gov as well and as a result can be found on LinkedCT http://linkedct.org which provides RDF. You can download an RDF dump of the data at: http://www.cs.toronto.edu/~oktie/linkedct

I searched for the ID of a few trials found through the search services you have listed in your email and was able to find them on LinkedCT.

Cheers,
Oktie

A colleague of mine is interested in looking at the clinical trials in UK. I understand that there are a number of data search portal available.

Do you happen to know whether this kind of clinical trial datasets are publicly available for download, ideally in RDF?

Best regards,
