Medical professionals can now keep pace with important clinical developments through the original research reports and expert reviews provided at CTJournalClub.com.

Articles accepted for publication in Excerpta Medica’s well-respected print journal Clinical Therapeutics will be considered for one of the featured spots on the CTJournalClub.com Web site.
