Python wrapper for the Clincal Trials API.

Project Description

A Python API wrapper for the [ClincalTrials.gov API](http://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/info/linking).

Documentation for [ClinicalTrials.gov can be found here.](http://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/info/linking)

Usage

The Trials class only has two methods – search and download. The same information from search is returned to the download method in ZIP file format.

>>> from clinical_trials import Trials
>>> t = Trials()
>>> t.search("alzheimer's disease")
>>> t.search('diabetes', 'cond')
>>> t.search('diabetes', 'condition')
>>> t.search(condition='diabetes')
>>> # Specify the number of trials turned.
... t.search(intervention='Fluoxetine', count=200)
>>> # Find trials no longer recruiting.
... t.search('lyme disease', recruiting='closed')
>>> # If you want plain XML returned back.
... t.search(sponsor='NHLBI', output_format=None)
>>> # You can also find trials by location -- up to 3 states or countries.
... t.search('cancer', state='TX')
>>> t.search('diabetes', state1='TX', state2='NY', state3='CA')
>>> t.search(condition='lyme disease', country1='US', country2='CA')
>>> # And you can download a ZIP file with the data.
... zip_file = t.download('cancer', count=500)
