General Notes/Comments:

NCI Thesaurus (NCIt) is a widely recognized standard for biomedical coding and reference. It covers vocabulary for clinical care, translational and basic research, public information and administrative activities and is used by a broad variety of public and private partners both nationally and internationally.The scope of NCI is determined by the combined scope of its source vocabularies which include the following:

Definitions (MRDEF)

  (return to top)

Only definitions with a source of NCI, NCI-GLOSS, or of an NCI subsource are included. Definitions are attached to their corresponding PT. For example, an NCI-GLOSS definition is attached to its NCI-GLOSS/PT. If there is no corresponding PT then the definition is attached to the NCI/PT. Definition attributions are enclosed within parentheses and appended to the definition.

Origin:

Definition: <P97...ncicp:ComplexDefinition xmlns:ncicp.../P97>

Alt_Definition: <P325...ncicp:ComplexDefinition xmlns:ncicp.../P325>
 

Relationships (MRREL)

  (return to top)

Origin of the relationship is derived from the "owl:onPropertyrdf..." code (Roles) and/or the "<A# rdf..." code (Associations). For example:

<rdfs:subClassOf>
   <owl:Restriction>
      <owl:onPropertyrdf:resource="#R.."/>
      <owl:someValuesFromrdf:resource="#C.."/>
   </owl:Restriction>

</rdfs:subClassOf>

<A1 rdf:resource="http://...owl#C..."/>

SY tradename_of/has_tradenameBrand names and generic names are not considered synonyms in NCI, so a relationship is created to link the two concepts. This data is added during Metathesaurus source processing.

(1) The relationship group is generated from the 'owl:Restriction' and 'owl:intersectionOf' tag in the source data file.

Hierarchy (MRHIER)

  (return to top)

The hierarchy is created from the 'rdfs:subClassOfrdf:resource' tag which indicates the parent of the concept. Sibling information is not included.

Mappings (MRMAP)

  (return to top)

No mappings are supplied by NCI.
