World Digestive Health Day heralds 2010 as the year of inflammatory bowel disease. Exciting new research is shedding light on the role of drugs not only in the treatment of Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis, but even in some cases as a potential contributing factor.

Designed to complement MIMS, the monthly prescribing reference for primary care professionals, MIMS Spotlight provides a regular round up of essential prescribing news and resources for key therapeutic areas.

Each issue of MIMS Spotlight draws together the latest drug news for a particular disease, alongside a selection of relevant quick-reference MIMS resources, to help you:

  • choose the right treatments
  • follow national guidelines
  • support and advise your patients
  • keep abreast of emerging medicines.

Future issues of MIMS Spotlight will collate essential MIMS prescribing news and resources relevant to respiratory diseases, cardiovascular disorders and many other conditions commonly encountered in primary care.
