CRAN status

Oncology extension package for ADaM in R Asset Library {admiral}


To provide a complementary (to {admiral}) toolbox that enables users to develop oncology disease area specifics.


The package is available from CRAN and can be installed with:


To install the latest development version of the package directly from GitHub use the following code:

if (!requireNamespace("remotes", quietly = TRUE)) {

remotes::install_github("pharmaverse/admiraldev") # This is a required dependency of {admiralonco}
remotes::install_github("pharmaverse/admiral") # This is a required dependency of {admiralonco}


The latest version of the package works with the latest versions of the packages stated in DESCRIPTION.

If a previous version of the package should be used, it is recommended to use latest version of the dependencies at the point of time when the previous version of {admiralonco} was released. For example, admiralonco 0.3.0 was released on 2023-03-14. I.e., it will work with the latest version of packages available at that date, e.g., admiral 0.10.



{admiralonco} is expected to complement {admiral} and provide functions to help with the creation of the efficacy endpoints required for oncology ADaMs.
