4 Some Distinctions Among Major Biomedical Bibliographic Sources…
MEDLINE Best coverage of dental literature among major biomedical bibliographic databases Pertinent subheadings to identify references to Instrumentation (IS) and Methods (MT) EMBASE Generally considered to provide better coverage of selected subject specialty areas, including: Biomedical engineering & instrumentation, medical devices Ophthalmology Plastic surgery Pharmaceutics (PR) singled out as a LINK term, as are routes of drug administration – Important in isolating references to new drug delivery systems that include a device component Quicker to adopt new vocabulary for use in controlled indexing, e.g., drug eluting stent added as controlled (thesaurus) term in June 2003 When primary source cites device brand name(s) and/or specific manufacturers, EMBASE includes names in online records (provides access to product-oriented literature, even when names have been omitted in the author’s original title and abstract)

5 Some Distinctions Among Major Biomedical Bibliographic Sources…
BIOSIS Previews Broader subject coverage: all life sciences, including biophysics & bioengineering Pertinent Major Concept indexing: “Biomedical Engineering”; “Equipment, Apparatus, Devices and Instrumentation” Emphasis on research, rather than routine clinical practice or established procedures, making it a good source for searching medical technologies under development & preclinical literature Provides access to additional resources not found in other “Big 4” files Books, theses, reports, U.S. patents, proceedings of scientific symposia, conference papers & poster presentations at scientific meetings SciSearch Multi-disciplinary in scope, with coverage of 5,200 journals, provides access to a cross-section of literature that includes not only biomedical journals, but also engineering, mathematics, biophysics, and pharmaceutical technology resources Cover-to-cover indexing not found elsewhere Extremely timely; very short lag time Natural language indexing reflects terminology changes, new concept vocabulary Cited reference search capabilities

6 Complementary Resources
International Pharmaceutical Abstracts Can contribute unique references to specialty journals in the pharmaceutics & pharmaceutical technology subject areas – helpful when focusing on new drug delivery technologies that involve a device component CA Search Another source for pharmaceutics-oriented literature. Also indexes conference proceedings & provides a selective gateway to the patent literature JICST Coverage of literature published in Japan, encompassing all fields of science, technology, and medicine. Indexing of 6,000 journals + conference papers, technical reports PASCAL Often yields additional references to scientific & technical literature, including conference papers

7 Engineering Literature Indexes
In the engineering literature, topical emphasis shifts to durability testing, mathematical analysis, materials science (preparation, characterization, manufacturing) Database coverage of technical conference proceedings is a bonus EI Compendex Take advantage of hierarchical Classification Code indexing: Bioengineering codes under CC=46 CC= (BIOENGINEERING) CC= (BIOMEDICAL ENGINEERING) CC= (BIOLOGICAL MATERIALS) CC= (BIOMECHANICS) CC= (HUMAN ENGINEERING) CC= (HUMAN REHABILITATION ENGINEERING) CC= (MEDICINE) CC= (HEALTH CARE) CC= (BIOTECHNOLOGY) CC= (GENETIC ENGINEERING) CC= (BIOLOGY) CC= (IMMUNOLOGY) CC= (MEDICAL ENGINEERING & EQUIPMENT) CC= (BIOMEDICAL EQUIPMENT, GENERAL) CC= (HOSPITALS, EQUIPMENT & SUPPLIES) CC= (DENTAL EQUIPMENT & SUPPLIES) CC= (PROSTHETICS) CC= (BIOMATERIALS)

8 Engineering Literature Indexes
INSPEC Device related class codes under: CC=A87, CC=B75, e.g.: CC=A8770 Biomedical engineering CC=A8770E Patient diagnostic methods & instrumentation CC=A8770F Electrodiagnostics CC=A8770J Prosthetics & other practical applications CC=A8780 Biophysical instrumentation & techniques CC=A8780B Biosensors CC=B7500 Medical physics & biomedical engineering CC=B7510 Biomedical measurement & imaging CC=B7510B Radiation & radioactivity applications in biomedicine CC=B7510D Bioelectric signals CC=B7520C Radiation therapy CC=B7520E Prosthetics & orthotics CC=B7530 Health Physics CC=B7530B Radiation protection & dosimetry CC=B7540 Hospital Engineering plus… CC=C1290L Systems theory applications in biology & medicine CC=C Biological & medical control systems CC=C3385C Prosthetic & orthotic control systems CC=C Medical administration CC=C Biology and medical computing CC=D Health care applications

9 Engineering Literature Indexes
MEDITEC: Biomedical Engineering BMED on DataStar, present, updated weekly Compiled by FIZ Technik, the MEDITEC database contains citations, with abstracts, to the international literature on biomedical engineering. Information is compiled from journals, conference papers, books, technical reports, and dissertations. The primary language of the database is German, but many search terms and abstracts are also in English. Topics covered include: Biomedical measurements (recording, plotting, processing, and evaluation of physiological parameters) Medical imaging (e.g., computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging) Data processing in medicine Biomaterials and materials for medical instrumentation Medical instruments for diagnostic and therapeutic applications Prostheses and rehabilitation engineering Clinical laboratory technology Optometry and ophthalmological instruments Dental technology Clinical engineering, hospital management

11 Regulatory Information Sources
DIOGENES FDA Regulatory Updates – File 158, DIOG (FOI Services) Premarket Application (PMA) approvals & 510K notifications ( ) Access to DIOGENES on Dialog facilitates downloading of retrospective data for post-processing and analysis, e.g., easy export of XML data in EXCEL spreadsheet format via DialogLink 5 Product recalls ( ) More retrospective coverage than offered on FDA Web site ( ) FDA.GOV search capabilities for product recalls are extremely limited. The current search interface identifies only the co-occurrence of terms within entire issues of the FDA Enforcement Report, making it difficult to isolate pertinent data from individual recalls & resulting in many “false drops” Enhanced accessibility to recall data through DIOGENES on Dialog Easy to single out Class I, II, or III recalls for given companies in specified time periods Dialog users of DIOGENES can also produce RANKed analyses of enforcement actions for comparisons/trend monitoring Medical Device Reports (MDRs = adverse experience/incident reports), 1985 – DIALOG RANK capabilities enable statistical analysis of MDRs, e.g., examination of a specified company’s product line by ranked incidence of adverse experience reports; review the “track record” of an entire device category & compare incidence of AEs associated with given companies

12 Regulatory Information Sources
Health Devices Alerts – File 198 (ECRI), updated weekly Database compiles reports of problems with specified devices, plus references to published evaluations and technology assessments MDRs ( ) Action Items – Most are related to recalls that ECRI has investigated or verified (1982 -) Provide details not readily accessible elsewhere online, such as specific follow-up recommendations issued by manufacturers to avoid or remedy further problems with named devices ECRI also often identifies errors or omissions in original FDA notices (e.g., incorrect serial #s of affected models) Abstracts of articles from the published literature, Brand & mfg name access to pertinent bibliography in primary medical literature, augmenting accessibility to same articles cited in EMBASE & MEDLINE ECRI abstracts of source documents typically provide more detailed data than that included in the original author abstract reproduced in other bibliographic databases

LATEST INFORMATION: 27 September 2004: At the European Partnering & Investment Conference, 16 September 2004, London, UK, R&D focus discussed PowderMed's proprietary Powder Mediated Epidermal Delivery (PMED) technology with Clive Dix, CEO of PowderMed, and Brenda Reynolds, COO. The PMED technology has utility in the development of therapeutic DNA vaccines, and PowderMed is seeking partners interested in collaborations using the PMED technology. The technology uses the PowderJect device to propel DNA precipitated onto microscopic gold particles into the epidermis. Microscopic gold particles, 1-3 mcM in diameter, have an appropriate density and size for direct DNA delivery into immunological active antigen presenting cells (APC). Once inside the APC, the DNA elutes off the gold and produces the encoded protein; the presentation of this protein by the APC to the lymphocytes results in the generation of T-cell-mediated immune responses. The technology can be used to develop vaccines that generate T-cell mediated responses to a broad range of viral and cancer antigens….
