Stars for selecting multiple trials


You’ll notice that when you’re logged in, stars now appear in every trial that has been graphed. If you click the star (or press ‘s’ while the trial’s details are visible), the star will light up, and a “Starred trials” box will appear at the left. It’s kind of boring right now, because the only button available is the “hide” button, but even that can be useful!

Imagine if you wanted to highlight only certain trials, say only phase 3 trials for RCC of the drug in question. You could sort it by phase, go through all the phase 3’s and star the ones you’re interested in. But wait! You don’t want to hide those ones—you want to hide all the others! I’ve got you covered. Click where it says “Invert starred,” and all the starred trials will be unstarred and previously unstarred trials will be starred instead. Then you can click “Hide (h)” (or push the ‘h’ button) and all those trials will disappear.

If you want them back again, click “Show hidden trials” from the “Tools” box.

And here’s the fun part: if you’re working on a saved search, the site remembers which trials you have hidden, so you could annotate it and send the permalink of your graph to a colleague if you found something interesting.

Annotations in version 0.13


The site now allows signed-in users to attach annotations to their searches. Try it out! (You must have an account to use this feature.)

Updates for v 0.11


Two new things in v 0.11:

  1. If you search for an indication area, before you view a drug’s full graph, the site now gives you a few pieces of information (the number of studies, the highest phase number of the selected set of studies, and the last end date).
  2. If you click on the title bar for the “Tools” box or the “Select a study” box or the “Legend” box (when coloured by sponsor), this collapses the box into the title bar. This is useful, in case you’re working on a computer with a small display.

Minor changes to 0.2 and plans for 0.3


I made a fairly minor cosmetic change to the site. Now, instead of a white block indicating incomplete date information, now the block sort of fades away to indicate that we don’t know how long the study lasted.

Also, today I discovered this. This means that I can put all kinds of new and interesting information into the site.
