Abstract

Survivorship is arguably the most important endpoint in a cancer clinical trial. Our goal is to compare the extent to which survivorship concepts within existing medical knowledge resources adequately capture how authors describe survivorship when reporting the inclusion criterion and outcomes from studies of 5 breast cancer treatments. Results show that MESH and the NCI thesauri provide good coverage with respect to set of core survivorship concepts that appear frequently in text; further work, however, is required to account for modifiers used by authors so that noun phrases in literature are accurately aligned with the corresponding concept in a given ontology.
