Elsevier Global Medical News (EGMN), the website that serves more than 30 million scientists, students ad health and information professionals worldwide has launched a new channel dedicated to providing information about the H1N1 Swine Flu virus.

The channel has been added to the Elsevier Global Medical News (EGMN) wire service division of the International Medical News Group.

The service has been launched to keep GPs and clinicians up to date about the current swine flu virus, as well as the new diagnostics, vaccines, clinical trials and treatments for H1N1 infections.

Alan Imhoff, president and publisher of the International Medical News Group, said: “Rapid dissemination of H1N1 news will be essential to physicians during this pandemic. EGMN wants to assure its clients that physicians will look to them for the latest H1N1 developments.”

Headquartered in Amsterdam, Netherlands, the Elsevier Global Medical News is the daily syndicated medical news wire service of the International Medical News Group. The EGMN division was launched in January 2006 and its syndicated news appears in 30 countries as part of its clients’ websites.

EGMN’s H1N1 news content is also available on the Lancet’s Flu Resource Centre H1N1 website. The Resource Centre is the result of a collaborative effort by the editors of over 40 Elsevier-published journals who have agreed to make freely available on this site any relevant content.
