Thomson Reuters Joins Fight Against Swine Flu

The Healthcare and Science Business of Thomson Reuters is offering free access to its Disease Briefing on Influenza (via Prous Science Integrity) to keep the global healthcare community informed about swine flu, or influenza A (H1N1). The daily briefing, which can be downloaded from, gives readers updates on the flu, including topics such as the development pipeline for related drugs and vaccines, the number of laboratory-confirmed cases, and the international response to the outbreak.

Disease briefings are executive summaries of the current status and future trends in drug therapy for a disease or disorder. Among the topics discussed are risk factors, prevalence and incidence, morbidity and mortality figures, and cost. The briefings also feature a structured, scientific approach to drug R&D for diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of a disease or disorder.

The data in the disease briefings comes from a drug R&D approach designed for life sciences researchers; these are not the medical or epidemiological approaches used elsewhere. The briefings also focus on drugs and vaccinations that are either in the development pipeline or on the market already.
