Amsterdam, December 6, 2006 -- Elsevier, a world-leading healthcare and scientific publisher, announced today new features for its drug tracking and analysis tool, Inteleos. These features enable users to search drug records by Mechanism of Action and Drug Class, graphically chart competitor drugs using a new analysis tool, and search and review clinical trial reports from ClinicalTrials.gov. Users can increase productivity and improve results by specifically tailoring information to meet their business needs.
By indexing Mechanism of Action terms and creating a searchable Drug Class field, Inteleos increases the flexibility of its search and analysis features. The Competitive Grid analysis tool graphically charts competitor drugs per therapy area and allows for comparisons by mechanism of action or drug class, creating dynamic results instantly. Using information reported by ClinicalTrials.gov users can identify and analyze clinical trials across industry, government and academia. Users can also view key trial details specific to drug records.
"Our team continues to show real commitment to customer focus. Improvements made to Inteleos are based on industry feedback; users tell us what they need - the type of information and the format - to improve their business decision-making and we strive to meet these needs" says Julie Gordon, Director of Inteleos, Elsevier. "The inclusion of the Drug Class feature enhances the flexibility and breadth of searching and analysis possible and this is actualized by the Competitor Grid analysis tool. Trial information, via ClinicalTrials.gov, further expands our service into the clinical environment and is the starting point for future enhancements, as customers tell us this is an area of critical need."
In the coming months, Inteleos will enhance services for BizInt customers by enabling the export of Inteleos data into BizInt Smart Charts.
