The authors present a new next generation domain of meta search engine. A Medical Meta Search Engine (MMSE) was designed in this research for the users with no medical expertise. It is enhanced with the domain knowledge obtained from Unified Medical Language System (UMLS) to increase the effectiveness of the searches. The power of the system is based on the ability to understand the semantics of web pages and the user queries. This MMSE transforms a keyword search into a conceptual search.
