Description

The Medical Letter publishes critical appraisals of new prescription drugs and comparative reviews of drugs for common diseases. The Medical Letter is a nonprofit organization that relies on a consensus of medical experts to develop prescribing recommendations that are completely independent of the pharmaceutical industry. These unbiased critical evaluations of drugs, with special emphasis on new drugs, are valuable not only to physicians and pharmacists but also to other healthcare professionals. This platform contains all issues of The Medical Letter from 1988 to the present.

The platform also includes all issues of Treatment Guidelines from The Medical Letter, which was published from 2002 -2014. In addition, Rutgers also has access to additional platform features, such as reference tables and Drugs of Choice annual handbooks. Rutgers does not have access to the Drug Interactions component of this platform.

This database is the electronic counterpart of the print publications The Medical Letter on Drugs and Therapeutics and Treatment Guidelines from The Medical Letter.
