Abstract

Chance discovery is the process of human interaction with the environment for discovering events significant for making a decision. We executed die double helix process of chance discovery, on the blood-test data for hepatitis B, for obtaining scenarios telling when and how symptoms essential for treatment appear. In the double-helical process of chance discovery, the presented scenario maps are evaluated and fed back to the following cycles, to obtain novel and potentially useful knowledge for treatment. Due to the combination of the objective facts in the data and the subjective focus of the hepatologists' concerns in this process, the relation between the changes of iron quantities due to iron-carrying proteins and the cure of hepatitis B with interferon, has got clarified visually.
