[誤] These diseases are often misdiagnosed because their early symptoms are very similar to those of several other diseases of the immune system. In the present paper, we propose a new method for uniquely distinguishing them.

[正] These diseases are often misdiagnosed because their early symptoms are very similar to those of several other diseases of the immune system. In the present paper, we propose a new method for correctly diagnosing these diseases.
