Search for Brand Names and Manufacturers?

TOPIC: In this example you want to find references comparing two brand name products, Rocephin and Synercid, both antibiotics, and find out who manufactures the drugs.

EMBASE® (File 72) is unique in the key biomedical literature databases in that it provides fields for Brand Names (TN), Drug Manufacturers (MN) and Medical Device Manufacturers (MD).

 

COMMAND SUMMARY

BEGIN 72
SELECT (SYNERCID AND ROCEPHIN)/TN
TYPE S1/TI,TN,MN/1-3


HOW TO...



1. BEGIN File 72 to search EMBASE.

2. SELECT brand names limiting to the Brand Name (/TN) field.

Be sure to enclose the ANDed terms in parentheses so they both will be searched in the /TN field.
