Die klinische Reviews-Datenbank UpToDate wurde aktualisiert und steht nun in der Version 15.2 zur Verfügung. Der UpToDate Newsletter enthält Informationen über die neuesten Änderungen, wie z.B. die Einführung einer neuen Suchmaschine, die mehrere Begriffe gleichzeitig suchen kann, wie z.B. ganze Sätze oder Fragen.

UpToDate performs a continuous review of over 375 journals and other resources. Updates are added as important new information is published. The literature review for version 15.3 is current through August 2007; this topic was last changed on September 21, 2007. The next version of UpToDate (16.1) will be released in March 2008.
