Subject: [bioontology-support] Newbie question on annotator


Beginning user of the Bioportal annotator
[].  I entered the following
text, and attempted to annotate this using SNOMEDCT ontology: 


"35 yo male with severe acne vulgaris and hla-b27-positive inflammatory
arthritis.  Acne not responding to clindamycin or doxycycline.  Currently
on Arava and Indocin for the arthritis."


However, it matched only "acne" and "current".


Whereas I would have expected it to also identify "male", "acne vulgaris",
"inflammatory arthritis", "clindamycin", "doxycycline", as these are also
terms in SnoMed-CT, and picked up by other annotation engines like cTakes.


Might there be something that I am doing wrong?


All the best,
