Download NTP Study Data

Are you an informaticist or a biostatistician interested in toxicology? You may want to investigate using the NTP data downloads. Using the links below, you can access NTP data by downloading a few files.

Summary data on all NTP chemicals can be downloaded in a single file. If you would like more detailed data, you can download an individual study type. Currently, Bioassay, CHO Cell Cytogenesis, Drosophila, Micronucleus, Mouse Lymphoma, Rodent Cytogenetics, and Salmonella study types are the study types available for detailed data downloads.

NTP plans to add files for the Developmental, and Immunology study types. NTP will update the data on a quarterly basis.

Format of NTP Data Downloads

NTP used XML to create these data files. XML is a free, open standard computer language with a set of rules that encodes documents in machine readable format. The XML files contain the data; schema files show how that data is organized and formatted. For additional information, see the World Wide Web Consortium's XML Technology section.

Although you can open and read XML and schema files in a text editor, it is unwieldy to view the downloaded files this way. Most files will be too large to open in Excel. Typically, bioinformaticians or computer programmers would use these files to bring NTP data into your applications or databases.

Online Searching Remains Available
