Deleted Descriptors - 2017

The following descriptors were deleted for 2017 MeSH. The Current Heading column on the right indicates where Medline Citations were maintained to by Year-End Processing (YEP). The type indication next to the Current Heading indicates whether it is newly created (NEW) for 2017 MeSH or an existing heading that was modified (MOD) for 2017 MeSH. The final column indicates whether the deleted MeSH heading appears as an entry term (ETERM) in the 2017 version of MeSH.
