uncertain Epoch Clinical Trial Ontology

General Information
The Epoch Clinical Trial Ontology is a standard, originally curated from data in BioPortal. It encodes knowledge about the clinical trial domain that is relevant to trial management applications. It has been created to support semantic interoperation of clinical trial software applications. Epoch is a suite of clinical trial ontologies that formally represents protocol entities relevant to the clinical trials management applications they support. However, information on this standard appears to no longer be available. If you work on this standard, or know of it's current status, please get in touch with our team.
