PubMed collections and local references

During this intensive developmental phase, Cinclus Pharma needed to gather and compile scientific information on GERD, especially about already existing therapies and unmet clinical need in the field.

Their approach involved creating reference collections in PubMed and saving references locally. But this was time consuming and it did not allow the references to be searchable.

– Both solutions lacked the searchability, therefore, finding the right reference from the collection was challenging and time consuming, says Elham Yektaei, Global Clinical Scientist at Cinclus Pharma.

Integrating PapersHive
