    55We were therefore asked to put together this draft consensus protocol for discussion at the 7th International Workshop on HIV Observational Databases, March 29th-30th 2003, Fiuggi, Italy. It is based on our experience with data-exchange protocols for [[http://www.cphiv.dk/DAD/tabid/57/Default.aspx|D:A:D]], the [[http://www.art-cohort-collaboration.org|ART Cohort-Collaboration]], the PLATO Collaboration and several previous studies on the safety of stopping OI prophylaxis.

It is evident that - depending on the questions addressed - only subsets of tables and fields will have to be extracted for data exchange.

    9 We have not elaborated on database systems (e.g. SQL-Server, Oracle, Access) and their respective file-formats as there are excellent tools for transferring data between most of the popular packages (e.g. [[http://www.stattransfer.com|StatTransfer]]). The suggested data structure should work with most formats and software packages.
