Release Date: 2011-04-15

We are happy to announce the release of ADDIS (Aggregate Data Drug Information System) version 1.6. New features include:

  • New formalized data model based on XML Schema, enabling future extensions of the data model.
  • Improvements to benefit-risk analysis.
  • The ability to take notes when inputting a study.
  • Added population baseline characteristics to example data.
  • Lots of bug fixes and usability improvements.
