On the top part of the result page, the service shows the format, XML, the character code, UTF-8, the descvmx system version, 1.0, the date, hour, minute and second, 20100625 141408, in which the search was done, the sought term, Macaca mulatta, and its hierarchical code, B01.050.150.900.649.801.400., when a descriptor equal to the sought term exists.

Then, the service shows the result data in two ways, a hierarchical view and the complete record view:

  1. the hierarchical position of the descriptor found, of its broader descriptors (or ancestors), of its brother
    descriptors (whose hierarchical codes are of equal level or length), called preceding and following siblings),
    and of its specific descriptors (or descendants).
  2. the complete record of the descritor found.

When the result contains two or more records, the service shows the the hierarchical position of the first and the
complete record of the first, the hierarchical position of the second and the complete record of the second, and so on.

The hierarchical view contains the following fields and parameters:

self - descriptor of the sought term;
ancestors - broader (or more general) descriptors;
preceding_sibling - brother descriptors (of equal hierarchical level), which precede the self;
following_sibling - brother descriptors (of equal hierarchical level), which succede the self;
term - name of the category or general descriptor, in the language selected in the DeCSClient;
descendants - descriptors more specific than the self;
tree_id - hierarchical code of the name of the category, generic descriptor, self, sibling or descendant;
leaf - indicates the most specific descriptor in the hierarchical structure;
lang - language of the content

The complete record contains the following fields and parameters:

lang - language of the content
db - name of the database
mfn - record number in the database
tree_id - the descriptor's hierarchical code;
descriptor - the preferred term for representing the concept, in the language specified in the lang
synonym - the alternative (or non-preferred) term in the language selected in the DeCSClient;
definition - the definition or scope note in the language selected in the DeCSClient;
indexing_annotation - notes to the indexers for indexing documents more properly, in the language selected in the
pharmacological_action_list - references to the pharmacological actions (other descriptors) of the
consider_also_terms_at - other Greek and Latin prefixes, with equal meaning;
entry_combination_list - this field is presented as an indication that a combination of a qualifier and a
descriptor should be indexed by a different descriptor. It forbids, and on some systems prevents, the
establishment of a relationship between a qualifier and a descriptor, forbidden because the meaning can be
expressed in a different manner covered by a different descriptor. For example, the descriptor/qualifier
combination 'Pregnancy/complications' is forbidden, and the user is pointed to the descriptor 'Pregnancy
see_related_list - list of related descriptors in other hierarchical branches;
allowable_qualifier - List of two letter abbreviations of the qualifiers allowed to be used with the descriptor
(format used in bibliographical searches);
unique_identifier_nlm - MeSH/NLM's unique identifier code, that is, the unchangeable identification code for
the one concept or group of concepts found in one electronic MeSH record (UI).
