The group agreed to explore the onco domains in the following order:
· Tumor Registry, CDISC and SEER are the existing standards and efforts in harmonizing the data collection.
Exploratory data set
· Christian would try putting together a working data set
At MSK we maintain a cancer tumor terminology called oncotree (which is publicly available) http://oncotree.mskcc.org/oncotree/
We also have a public API that maps ICDO site and histology combinations to Oncotree concepts, which at the same time are mapped to NCI Thesaurus and UMLS, see http://oncotree.mskcc.org/oncotree-mappings/
An example for that API would be http://oncotree.mskcc.org/oncotree-mappings/crosswalk?vocabularyId=ICDO&conceptId=&histologyCode=8490/3&siteCode=C16.1
