Mapping longitudinal studies to risk factors in an ontology for dementia.

In this paper by Roantree et al. (2015), members of the Innovative Midlife Intervention for Dementia Deterrence (In-MINDD) project discuss the difficulty of matching new disease ontologies to old datasets. In particular they describe the development of a dementia risk ontology and the further development of an automated mapping system based on stemming and comparison at phrase level. The project successfully maps this ontology of dementia risk to data within the Maastricht Aging Study.
