Page info

The CDE Browser can be used to download collections of meta data describing data held in repositories for cancer research and clinical trials. These CDEs can be downloaded in Excel or XML Format. However, it is not always easy to find the desired collection, as CDEs are organized in the Navigation Tree by Context, not topic. Attempting to download all the Released CDEs would result in a file that is too large for an Excel download. The canned collections in the following list are provided for your convenience.
