FDA greenlights osteoporosis drug/calcium combo

Actonel with Calcium includes 4 weeks of therapy. Each week contains seven tablets (one 35-mg once-a-week Actonel tablet and six tablets that each provide 500 mg of calcium).

The survey showed that one in four women in the United States takes calcium within 30 minutes of taking her bisphosphonate, which lessens the bisphosphonate's effectiveness.

Free CME learning tool for physicians on the move

Epocrates' MobileCME approach to "on-the-go" continuing medical education enables physicians to proceed at their own pace in taking CME courses on handheld devices like smart phones and Palm- and Pocket PC-based operating system devices, according to the San Mateo, Calif.-based company. The system delivers content from top US medical schools like Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, the Massachusetts Medical Society, and the Health Science Center for CME. Courses-which will be expanded throughout the year-now include, "Managing Menopausal Symptoms," "Controversies with HRT," "Treating Adolescents with Acute Pelvic Inflammatory Disease," and "Diagnosing Ovarian Cancer."
