"Alzheimer diseases” is not a class in the MeSH ontology, though "Alzheimer disease”  is, and Annotator will pick this up. Annotator does not do any stubbing, so singular forms of plural labels will not get picked up (and vice-versa). The only way this would work given the current Annotator would be if a class had a synonym "Alzheimer diseases”, which doesn’t exist in MeSH either.
Please let me know if you have other questions.

I pasted in "Alzheimer diseases", and used MeSH ontology, and expect the match of the entire phrase "Alzheimer diseases" since it is a MeSH term, however, the matched class is just "Disease", which is much broader discriptor. Did I missing anything here?
