Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease Therapeutic Area User Guide v1.0

Release Date: 26 Jan 2016

Version 1.0 of the COPD Therapeutic Area User Guide (TAUG-COPD) was developed under the CFAST program and the CDISC Standards Development Process. TAUG-COPD describes the most common biomedical concepts relevant to chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and the necessary metadata to represent such data consistently with the CDISC standards, such as CDASH, SDTM, and ADaM. 

TA Standards extend the Foundational Standards to represent data that pertain to specific indications within disease areas. CDISC Standards specify how to structure the data; they do not specify what data should be collected or how to conduct clinical trials, assessments or endpoints.

CDISC posts Public Review comments and resolutions to ensure transparency and show implementers how comments were addressed in the standard development process.
