Article Abstract

Reforming disease classification system—are we there yet?

Authors: Mikhail G. Dozmorov

Abstract

What constitutes a disease? How similar is one disease to another? How is a disease of one patient similar to a disease of another patient? These questions are probably as old as the medical practice itself. Answering them would allow for better understanding of underlying mechanisms, guide diagnosis, improve prognosis, justify drug repurposing.
