The definitions are very messy. It seems that if you put each definition in a single line, the reading will be much more easier. Sometimes i preffer to search in google because of this problem. And another suggestion: if you write the field of any terminologies besife of them, it would help us to find what we want much more easier. For example, i need to know the maning of PML in infectious disease. It has a lot of synomims.
