     16A set of extended ATC codes are being presented here in order to code both more specific on subtypes of the drugs, e.g. saquinavir hard and soft gel, but also to enable coding of drugs that are at their trial stage and have not yet been assigned an ATC code. To do this the drug will be assigned the code elements as far down the levels as possible. Given two examples to illustrate this: 
     17 
     18 Saquinavir - Hard Gel:: J05AE01-SQH 
     19 Saquinavir - Soft Gel:: J05AE01-SQS 
     20 Saquinavir - not specified:: J05AE01 
     21 
     22This will ensure the fidelity needed to distinguish between hard and soft gel and not specified, but also for analysis easily include all records which coding starts with J05AE01, regardless if the drug is hard or soft gel.
