Term Browser Received confirmation that the new value search capability will be in the next release of the LexEVS API that the 2.12 release is dependent on.  We will make the necessary changes to the browser as needed for this change then be ready for deployment.

NCIm Browser


Term Suggestion Application



In responding to CTRP’s multiple paths to Main Type Ancestors inquiry, developed a capability to identify concepts in NCI Thesaurus that have multiple Main Type Ancestors and multiple paths that lead to different Main Type Hierarchy roots (for example, AIDS-Related Primary Central Nervous System Lymphoma (C8284)).

In responding to a CTRP request, developed and implemented a methodology for identifying biomarker concepts relating to a given gene concept and subsequently produced and distributed a report containing the lists of biomarker concepts related to HRAS Gene (Code C17060), KRAS Gene (Code C25785) and NRAS Gene (Code C25786).

Issue NumberDescriptionStatus
NCITERM-769Rebuild value set trees using SourceAssertedValueSetHierarchyServicesImpl.
  • Resolved a missing National Cancer Institute Terminology node returned by the SourceAssertedValueSetHierarchyServicesImpl remote API method, getSourceDefinedTree issue.
  • Performed trouble-shooting on a broken National Cancer Institute Terminology link. The root cause is that the value set corresponding to the URI,, have not been loaded.  
  • More work is needed in finding a solution for handling External (e.g., NDFRT) value sets and NCIt-maintained value sets that are not defined by the Concept_In_Subset association.
NCITERM-778Incorrect CDISC PT values on the resolved value set page.
  • Received a business rule from the Operations team for extracting CDISC PT from synonym data of each corresponding concept. Will fix the issue accordingly.

 09/10/2015  H H AppScan are taking long periods of time to complete.  For Term browser, the minimum has been 5 days.We are working on both the code base and configuration of the scan to try to improve performance.  We are also looking at open source code scanners that could possibly be used ahead of the AppScan to at least limit the number appscans required.

 09/10/2014Getting the environment in place for the Mayo trip to NCI.Need to get each of the environment (DEV,QA,Stage) in place before the Mayo trip on September 22nd.  We are currently one week behind.  The impact is that the Mayo developer will be onsite to work on the deployments and the tiers will not be in place. Currently we only have the DEV environment setup for the LexEVS API>
