What Can MedSearch Do For You?
Our clients come to us with secondary literature research needs that vary in complexity from a request for regional epidemiology data for a specific disease to a comprehensive search for all known incidents of adverse events and complications with the use of a biomedical device.
While a free database like the National Library of Medicine's PubMed has become an important source of information, there are many other valuable "hidden" bioscience resources that are not easily accessed. Even searching PubMed can be challenging to the person who does not use it on a regular basis. As information professionals, we subscribe to dozens of online databases to keep you at the forefront of the vast, ever-increasing world of biomedical knowledge. And, research that requires access to older or archived journals and texts is done as a manual search in medical libraries across the country.MedSearch can answer questions like:
- What material provides the greatest advantages for bioabsorbable arterial stents?
- Can you provide a list of all agents that have been FDA-approved in the bronchodilator class of drugs, by subclass?
- What is the incidence of Hepatitis A in Central America?
- What are the long-term effects of repeated exposures to chlorpyrifos, an organophosphorus insecticide?
- What is the early clinical trial history of transdermal patches?
- What are the known complications of artificial sphincters in children aged 0 to 18?
- Can you provide us with a list of every association in the United States that provides information or assistance with renal transplantation?
- Can you find every bibliographic citation for studies authored by D.M. Faber on the application of near-infrared spectroscopy on humans?
