Description The aim of the chemotherapeutic regimens (CHR) digitalization project is the proposal of a universal structure and creation of a publicly accessible database of contemporary CHR as a universal utility for the communication and evaluation of contemporary and newly defined clinical schedules in anti-tumor chemotherapy. After analysis of contemporary anti tumor CHR a standard XML structure was proposed, which enables the recording of simple CHR from the field of chemotherapy in solid adult tumors, and also has the potential of recording the complex treatment protocols in the field of paediatric oncology. The resulting XML documents were saved on a web server. A publicly accessible CHR database was constructed. There were a total of 130 XML documents with definitions of individual CHR in the first phase. Linked to this data store, three examples of web applications were added to demonstrate the potential uses of this newly created database.
