Layar Data Sources

The pre-built Layar Master Data Sources provide access to important content including:

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE)
A primary database for clinical guides in the United Kingdom, NICE is a multi-professional resource that offers comprehensive guidelines and appraisals of clinical technologies. Drawing from over a thousand trustworthy and accredited sources, NICE offers access to a wide breadth of full-text publications, as well as works in progress. These resources cover an array of topics, including but not limited to: clinical guidelines, public health guidance, social care, diagnostics, medical technologies, technology appraisals, interventional procedures, quality standards, and ‘information for the public’.

PubMed Abstracts
Covering over 30 million citations from 1966 to present (and some citations dating back to the early 1800s), PubMed is the definitive NCBI citation index for research in medicine and biosciences. Over 500,000 new records are added annually, including MEDLINE publications, other full-text resources, as well as links to NCBI sequencing databases. PubMed abstracts are processed separately from our PubMed Central Open Access database, so you can derive value from both databases without receiving redundant results.

PubMed Central (PMC) Open Access
Over the past twenty years, PMC has served as the digital platform for the U.S. National Institute of Health’s National Library of Medicine (NLM). PMC Open Access is the largest collection of articles available via PMC– over 5.8 million full-text articles, spanning several centuries of biomedical and life science research from the late 1700s to present.

ClinicalTrials
Explore over 300,000 clinical research studies in all 50 U.S. states and 209 countries world-wide. Maintained by the U.S. National Library of Medicine, ClinicalTrials.gov includes trial meta-data, participant flow, baselines characteristics, outcome measures, statistical metrics, and adverse events.

US Patent Office (USPTO)
The authoritative source for all US patents and patent applications, the USPTO contains information on all US patents from 1790 onwards, updated weekly. We offer a variety of full texts for analytics, including grants, published patent applications, patent assignments, classification information, trademark registration, trademark applications, assignments, and TTAB proceedings.

PubChem
Curated by the National Institute of Health (NIH), PubChem has become a key chemical information resource for scientists, companies, and the general public. PubChem contains information on a wide variety of molecules, including but not limited to nucleotides, carbohydrates, lipids, peptides, and chemically modified macromolecules. PubChem curates information about structures, identifiers, chemical and physical properties, biological activities, patents, safety, toxicity data, and many others.
