XML::Parser::ClinicalTrials::Study ---------------------------------- An XML parser/representation for ClinicalTrials.gov data. SYNOPSIS use File::Slurper 'read_text'; use XML::Parser::ClinicalTrials::Study; # XML file downloaded from clinicaltrials.gov my $xml = read_text( 'NCT00003095.xml' ); my $study = XML::Parser::ClinicalTrials::Study->new( xml => $xml ); DESCRIPTION The web site <http://clinicaltrials.gov/> publishes information about pharmaceutical clinical trials. This module parses the XML files available for those trials into Moose objects with data accessors. For more details about the contents of these files, see the glossary of CT.gov site terms at <http://www.clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/info/glossary>. ACCESSORS Study instances have several accessors, both simple value accessors and object accessors. Value Accessors These accessors provide simple values. When a value is not present in the XML file, this accessor will return the empty string. * nct_number * sponsor * condition * study_design * description * recruitment_status * source * summary * type * brief_title * official_title * phase * start_date * last_changed * first_received * completion_date * estimated_completion_date * primary_completion_date * actual_enrollment * estimated_enrollment * normalized_phase Object Accessors These accessors provide array references of other Moose objects with their own accessors. Where a value is not present in the source XML file, the returned array reference will be empty. * link An array reference of XML::Parser::ClinicalTrials::Study::Link objects. * interventions An array reference of XML::Parser::ClinicalTrials::Study::Intervention objects. * design An array reference of XML::Parser::ClinicalTrials::Study::Design objects. * mesh_terms An array reference of XML::Parser::ClinicalTrials::Study::MeSHTerm objects. * locations An array reference of XML::Parser::ClinicalTrials::Study::Location objects. * contacts An array reference of XML::Parser::ClinicalTrials::Study::Contact objects. NOTES These modules don't represent *all* of the data found in CT.gov XML files. Patches welcome.
