iGuard.org Alters the Face of E-Health: New Web Service Draws 10,000 New Patients Weekly
Date:4/30/2008

First and Only Site Allows Patients to See How Drugs Actually Work in Real

People

PRINCETON, N.J., April 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, iGuard.org, a free, patient-driven online healthcare community, announced the launch of an innovative new tool that brings patient empowerment to a new level.

Members of the community can easily access pooled, anonymous information on side-effects, safety and effectiveness so they know what to expect when starting a new treatment.

No other site out there has a balanced information exchange that 'demystifies' the process, can give our users a level of comfort and arm them with the information they need to get informed and stay informed about their healthcare," said Dr. Hugo Stephenson, founder and creator of iGuard.org with a specialty in epidemiology and drug safety. "Since inception, the FDA has given us feedback and direction on how to improve our value to th
