Contents -> The Human Disease Author Aid Collection is published in parts with 5-10 diseases grouped by therapeutic areas, except Part 1. Tables are planned to be updated with the latest metadata and citations quarterly. -> Part 1 includes opening examples for common and rare human diseases: hemophilia, phenylketonuria, alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency, migraine, and COVID-19. -> Each disease template overview in Part 1 includes six sections: Terminology; Epidemiology/Demographics; Clinical presentation/Diagnosis; Etiology/Pathology (genetics, biomarkers, pathways); Treatment/Follow-Up; and Case studies. Each subset of data is linked to a list of publications with relevant citations.
