New and Fixed in Version 5.1.2 (2019-10-13)

NOTE: Some users are having problems installing updates at this time. We expect to have this issue fixed soon. If you need to install now, visit our support site for tips.

Drug Pipeline Databases

  • Added support for Clarivate Integrity on the InfoDesk platform.

Reference Rows

  • In Reference Rows, added a column rule for the Row Status column to give a more accurate view of the status of a group of rows following an update.

Other Improvments

  • Made improvements to the Identify Common Trial ID tool to block some identifiers (like grant ids) which would cause trials to be grouped inappropriately.
  • Added a new column from PubMed with supporting grants.
  • Fixed a bug which could cause a crash when you undo the Edit | Add Column command.

Fixed in Version 5.1.1 (2019-06-19)

  • Some records in IMS R&D Focus on Dialog are missing drug names. The document title is now used as the drug name in this case.
  • Fixed a bug in the Summary Records export when an empty cell follows a subtable.

Announcing Version 5.1 (2019-04-30)

  • Added a new entry on the Tools menu to change row links for Pharmaprojects and TrialTrove to point to the new Citeline website. This can be used with charts from the old Citeline website, or from other systems like Dialog or InfoDesk PipelinePlus.
  • Added a new option for the Word - Summary Records export to skip empty fields.

Clinical Trials

  • Added support for new "Reason for Trial Discontinuation" controlled-vocabulary field in clinical trial records from Cortellis. Also fixed a problem which was causing the Suspension Reason text field from being extracted.

New in Version 5.0.2 (2019-03-07)

  • Made a small adjustment to the sort order for very early pre-clinical phases.

New and Fixed in Version 5.0.1 (2019-02-10)

  • Fixed a problem with dragging items on the Sort panel and View Columns panel which caused crashes and in some cases corrupted chart files.

Clinical Trial Databases

  • Now populating the "Drug(s)" column in Adis Clinical Trials.

Reference Rows

  • Fixed a problem in Excel exports which could cause an extra blank cell in some rows, shifting the remaining cells to the right.

Announcing Version 5.0 (2018-09-30)

We are pleased to announce the release of BizInt Smart Charts Drug Development Suite Version 5.0.

  • Improved Common Drug Name grouping, preventing a single database from grouping multiple records with a single synonym. We continue to work on improving matching, both for drug names and clinical trial identifiers, and welcome your feedback.
  • You can now create links from NCT numbers and DOIs in a column, by setting a column property. Learn more on our Full Text Links support page.
  • Includes a new Summary Records export, which creates a note card-like presentation in Word from your drug pipeline and clinical trial data. Structure images can be included in the report. Visit our Summary Records export page to learn more.

Database Highlights

  • Introduces support for the next generation of Pharmaprojects and Trialtrove from Citeline. This build includes a few fixes and adjustments to the Trialtrove filters.
  • Adds support for the Cortellis Clinical Trials Intelligence platform. Subscribers to CTI will see significantly more data in their BizInt exports.
  • Significant improvements to support of all databases on the InfoDesk PipelinePlus platform.
  • Continued improvements to our support of, including Overall Official, a new Officials Table, a Has Results flag, and Funding Class.
  • Improved abstract display in Medline on several platforms, support for Author Keywords and Corresponding Author when present (primarily on ProQuest Dialog and PubMed).

New in Version 4.6.8 (2018-09-18)


  • Support for the next generation Trialtrove and Pharmaprojects is just about ready for release in Version 5.0. We'd love a few more eyes checking these new exports out, so if you're able to install software easily, please give the new Citeline platform a try and let us know if you find any issues. More details can be found on our Citeline Next Generation support page.

Biomedical Literature

  • Improved the display of section headings in Medline to help with text analysis projects. This change has been made for exports from PubMed and ProQuest Dialog.

New and Fixed in Version 4.6.7 (2018-09-05)

All fields are now being exported, with the exception of a few fields planned for implementation later this year. You can learn more on our Citeline Next Generation support page.

Fixed in Version 4.6.6 (2018-08-28)

Clinical Trials Databases

  • Fixed an error message when opening or building charts in version 4.6.5.

Fixed in Version 4.6.1 (2018-07-10)

  • Supported a change in the internal label in the Clarivate Analytics Integrity export files which caused an error when trying to import Integrity exports. Clarivate restored the original file format on 12 July, so this release is no longer required to create reports from Integrity.

Clinical Trials

  • Adds support for the Cortellis Clinical Trials Intelligence platform. You will notice many new fields from Cortellis clinical trials, but these will only be populated if you subscribe to the CTI module. The database name will include "(CTI)" if you are building reports from this module.
