I just wanted to kindly ask if anyone is aware about the presence of a repository of datasets containing both the Reported Term (usually collected in the CRF as free text by the investigator) and its relative MEDDRA coding.

I tried to check the FAERS databases, they could have been my perfect solution, but they don't include the Reported Term, only the coded term from MEDDRA dictionary.

Thanks for taking the time to answer.


I'm one the many folks working on Open FDA. We've searched across FDA data sets open to the public and, unfortunately, did not identify one that would meet your requirement at this time.

  • denis, this information is crucial in your answer, not in comments. and "searched across FDA data sets" tells me nothing...sorry, but what datasets? all? some? those you have access to? – albert Sep 8 '16 at 20:10
