The NCI caDSR CDE Browser can be used to download collections of meta data describing data held in repositories for cancer research and clinical trials, and the caDSR Form Builder can be sued to view and download the Case Report (CRF) designs. These CDEs can be downloaded in Excel or XML Format, form can be downloaded in Excel format. However, it is not always easy to find the desired collection, as the high level organization of CDEs and Forms in the Navigation Tree is by Context, not topic. After selecting a Context, one can browse the Classifications, but this may not be intuitive to some users.
