PTSD Therapeutic Area User Guide v1.0

Release Date: 12 Dec 2018

Version 1.0 of the Post Traumatic Stress Disorder Therapeutic Area User Guide (TAUG-PTSD) was developed under the CDISC Standards Development Process and describes the most common biomedical concepts relevant to PTSD, and the necessary metadata to represent data consistently with CDASHSDTM, 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.
