Most severe liver diseases (SLDs) are attributed to increased risk for cancer, and cirrhosis, through which the manifestation of fibrotic tissues and scars tends to affect liver function The role of liver is indispensable, as inner organ performing services that ranges from metabolism, immune guide, energy producer and digestive aid, just to mention a few. Prevalence of classification problem and the need for automated prognosis is the continual drive to apply data mining techniques and/or machine learning algorithms in medical diagnosis and clinical support systems. Computational scientists and researchers in the field of artificial intelligence have recorded notable efforts with existing methods/models for diagnosis or prognosis, yet their effectiveness and functional performance is not without drawback due to ambiguity of medical information and selected features in patients’ data to tell the future course. In this paper, a novel hybridized machine learning model was provided (Fuzzy c-BC) for clinical classification of Severe Liver Disorders (SLDs) and to determine Lungs Vulnerability (LV) to virus; by incorporating individual strength of fuzzy cluster means (FCM) and naive Bayes classifier (NBC) for projecting future course of every categorized liver disease (LD) and its implication to aggravate lungs infection if preventive measures are not taken in timely manner.
