Medical - Medical (general) / Letter from ANSM
French term or phrase: PT
Dear colleagues,

I am unsure as to the meaning of "PT" in a letter from the ANSM regarding amendements to the SmPC and patient information leaflet. The translator has put "patient", but I am not sure how this fits.

De plus, la revue de la base de données fait état de deux cas graves avec le PT « douleur abdominal » et d'aucun cas de diarrhée et de douleur abdominal.

Ainsi, je vous demande de clarifier s’il s’agit de cas avec le PT « diarrhée » ou le PT « douleur abdominale » ou bien une association des deux.

Thank you!

Reference: Ref.

Reference information:
The structure of MedDRA is very logical. There are five levels to the MedDRA hierarchy, arranged from very specific to very general. At the most specific level, called “Lowest Level Terms” (LLTs), there are more than 70,000 terms which parallel how information is communicated. These LLTs reflect how an observation might be reported in practice. This level directly supports assigning MedDRA terms within a user database.

Each member of the next level, “Preferred Terms” (PTs), is a distinct descriptor (single medical concept) for a symptom, sign, disease diagnosis, therapeutic indication, investigation, surgical or medical procedure, and medical social or family history characteristic. Each LLT is linked to only one PT. Each PT has at least one LLT (itself) as well as synonyms and lexical variants (e.g., abbreviations, different word order).
