Ontologies and controlled vocabulary are being used to reduce deaths due to hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. Miltech brought this news to our attention in their article, “Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy Therapeutics Market; Region Wise Analysis of Top Players inMarket by its Types and Application.”

Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy s a genetically determined heart muscle disease most often caused by mutations in one of several sarcomere genes which encode components of the contractile apparatus of the heart. More than five million people are living with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy in the United Sates and about half of the affected population succumb within five years of diagnosis. However, there has been a significant reduction in deaths as a result of this disease due to improved therapies to treat the disease. The hypertrophic cardiomyopathy therapeutics market research indicates an expected growth of 1.80% during the period 2017-2021.

One advancement is the modern approaches to integrate and analyze the heterogeneous features to enhance the clinical guidelines for treatment and prevention of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. TBI is a computational approach, acting as a data-storage source, which not only performs data integration but also improves data representation. This will be done by using tools such as ontology and controlled vocabulary, as they provide a standard way for representation of data.
