Remember: PubMed does NOT include the full-text of articles in its database--it links out to them. PubMed only searches the information about the article, not the full-text of the article.
National Libary of Medicine indexers examine articles and assign the most specific MeSH headings that describe the concepts discussed.
The indexer assigns as many MeSH headings as appropriate to cover the topics of the article (generally 5 to 15). When there is no specific heading for a concept, the indexer will use the closest, general heading available.
Indexers can also assign Subheadings to further describe a particular aspect of a MeSH concept. Examples of Subheadings in this list are: therapeutic use, physiology, surgery, drug therapy.
The indexer also assigns terms that reflect the characteristics of the group being studied: the age group, human or other animal, male or female.
