Hello Rachael,

I’m writing to ask for more information on the version of MESH that is currently available in Bioportal.
The current version is 2018AB released on 11/5/2018 and uploaded on 4/29/2019. Could you tell me whether this version contains any 2019 updates since the release date 11/5/2018 or whether it only contains the data available on that date?

We obtain MeSH content via the UMLS Metathesaurus [1], released twice per year by the National Library of Medicine.

2018AB refers to the UMLS release in the latter part of last year. According to their metadata for MeSH [2], UMLS 2018AB contains MeSH version "MSH2019_2018_07_31”.

You would need to contact the ontology maintainers to find our what they included in that release number. Contact information is available at the link I provided below [2].

Kind regards,
