The Medical Letter Introduces a New Handbook: Drugs for Parasitic Infections

NEW ROCHELLE, NY — December 1, 2007
Adding to its roster of invaluable reference handbooks, The Medical Letter announces the release of its newest handbook: Drugs for Parasitic Infections.

"Parasitic infections are found throughout the world," says Gianna Zuccotti, MD and Deputy Editor of The Medical Letter. "With increasing travel, immigration, use of immunosuppressive drugs and the spread of AIDS, physicians anywhere may see infections caused by previously unfamiliar parasites."

With these concerns in mind, the release of this book provides clinicians with an invaluable summary of drugs and dosages for the management of parasitic infections, as well as information about adverse effects. The book also covers safety of antiparasitic drugs in pregnancy.
