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)

Drug Pipeline Databases

  • Adds support for the remaining fields from the next generation Pharmaprojects platform. 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. Please let us know if you find any issues.

Fixed in Version 4.6.6 (2018-08-28)

  • Improved display of Inclusion and Exclusion Criteria in Trialtrove's next generation platform.

New and Fixed in Version 4.6.5 (2018-08-26)

Clinical Trials Databases

  • This release continues the implementation of support for the next generation Citeline platform. TrialTrove support should be complete in this version, including support for several newly available fields. Learn more about the current status on our Citeline Next Generation support page.

New in Version 4.6.4 (2018-08-06)

Clinical Trials Databases

  • Preliminary support for Trialtrove on the next generation Citeline platform. We're aware of a few fields missing from the export at this time. New fields introduced in this export are not yet mapped to other databases. Learn more about the new Citeline platform on our Citeline Next Generation support page.

New in Version 4.6.3 (2018-08-05)

Drug Pipeline Databases

  • Preliminary support for Pharmaprojects on the new generation Citeline platform. A number of fields are not yet exported from Pharmaprojects - see a current list on our Citeline Next Generation support page.

New in Version 4.6.2 (2018-07-20)

Biomedical Literature

  • Added support for Author Keywords from PubMed and from PQD (Medline and EMBASE). Added support for Corresponding Author on PQD. Created a Prepublication column for PubMed exports ("Yes" when the PublicationStatus is aheadofprint).

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.

Introducing Version 4.6 (2018-06-24)

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.

Drug Pipelines

  • Fixed a problem with extracting the Update Date from Adis R&D Insight on InfoDesk PipelinePlus.

Reference Rows

  • Fixed a problem in Reference Rows when exporting cells with structure images to summary records exports.

Biomedical Literature

  • For DOI links, added a new entry on the Options menu to specify the base URL. For more information on configuring DOI links, or the NCT links introduced in version 4.5, see our Configuring Full Text Links web page.

Reference Rows

  • When exporting to HTML or Word, and only including the first record in each group in the export, you can now place the link on the first column of the chart (rather than relying on the Database column). Note that this option is not available if the first column is a subtable.

  • Improved Common Drug Name grouping: this is the first release of ongoing development to improve behavior of the "Identify Common Drug Names" tool. This release prevents a single database from listing a synonym in more than one record. Note that the actual name selected for the Common Drug Name column might not be as good a choice as it was before.
  • PipelinePlus: Added support for Adis R&D Insight records and fixed several problems with Cortellis drug profiles on PipelinePlus.
