SEER*Rx - Interactive Antineoplastic Drugs Database
Released September 30, 2014 (details)
Important Update: SEER*Rx has a new look! SEER*Rx now has a new and improved search engine that does faster and more intelligent full text searching of all fields, with a sortable results table and a new relevance column so you can tell how relevant each search result is to your entered search string. Additionally, each drug and regimen is now displayed in its own page so that you can bookmark specific entries.
SEER*Rx was developed as a one-step lookup for coding oncology drug and regimen treatment categories in cancer registries. The information in this database is effective for cancer diagnoses made on January 1, 2005 and after. Review and recoding of drugs from previous years is not required or recommended.
How to Access SEER*Rx
SEER*Rx is available in two formats: a web-based tool and as stand-alone software.
The SEER*Rx - Interactive Antineoplastic Drugs Database is provided in a web-based format that has several benefits over the software:
- Updates are automatic: users do not have to install anything to access the latest revisions.
- Allows access from any computer or device with an Internet connection.
- Eliminates problems for users who do not have permission to install software on their work computers.
Download Software Version
Note: The software version of SEER*Rx will be updated soon to include the data available in the September 2014 release of the web version. Until then, version 2.2.0 of the software contains older data from the August 2013 update.
The web-based version of the SEER*Rx is the preferred method to access the current data. If you need the software version because of limited Internet access, it is still available for now, but may be phased out in the future. Note that the coding information in the software version of the database can get out-of-date; be sure to check back to this site to install any updates.
