Abstract : Introduction. Chemotherapies against cancers are often interrupted due to severe drug toxicities, reducing treatment opportunities. For this reason, the detection of toxicities and their severity from EHRs is of importance for many downstream applications. However toxicity information is dispersed in various sources in the EHRs, making its extraction challenging. Methods. We introduce OntoTox, an ontology designed to represent chemotherapy toxicities, its attributes and provenance. We illustrated the interest of OntoTox by integrating toxicities and grading information extracted from three heterogeneous sources: EHR questionnaires, semi-structured tables, and free-text. Results. We instantiated 53,510, 2,366 and 54,420 toxicities from questionnaires, tables and free-text respectively, and compared the complementarity and redundancy of the three sources. Discussion. We illustrated with this preliminary study the potential of OntoTox to guide the integration of multiple sources, and identified that the three sources are only moderately overlapping, stressing the need for a common representation.
