A new database from
the National Institutes of Health (news - web sites) (NIH) offers access to papers on CAM.
The National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine
has joined with National Library of Medicine--both part of the
NIH--to create a massive database of literature on complementary
and alternative medicine (CAM).
The free, web-based database offers
access to more than 220,000 abstracts, references and some full
text articles on alternative medicine. The database is called
CAM on PubMed and is part of PubMed, the National Library of
Medicine's free system that provides access to the MEDLINE database.
MEDLINE covers 4,500 journals published in the US and overseas.
joint venture will offer health professionals, CAM practitioners,
researchers, educators, and consumers ready access to a comprehensive
database of journal citations directly related to complementary
and alternative medicine,'' said Dr. Donald Lindberg, director
of the National Library of Medicine.
To access the database, users
can go to the National Center for Complementary and Alternative
Medicine Web site
