Drugs & Bugs: A New App from Monthly Prescribing Reference
Date:2/23/2012

NEW YORK, Feb. 23, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Monthly Prescribing Reference (MPR) is pleased to announce the launch of the Drugs & Bugs App, an essential resource for healthcare professionals. The app provides comprehensive information on antibiotic spectrum of efficacy against microorganisms. Clinicians may use the searchable alpha indices or search drugs and bugs by bacterial class or pharmacological class to begin their query.

The Drugs & Bugs App features:

  • A database of more than 100 antibiotics and nearly 200 bacterial pathogens
  • Smart Search capability by pathogen, type of infection, brand and generic drug names
  • Quick-to-read results on spectrum of activity
  • Comprehensive drug monographs for anti-infective agents
  • Useful comparative charts by drug class
  • Clinical calculators

Drugs & Bugs was developed by MPR and US Biomedical Information Systems (USBMIS), MPR's app development partner, in cooperation with Philip Chung, PharmD, BCPS; Clinical Pharmacy Manager in Infectious Diseases at Montefiore Medical Center, NY. The drug monographs are frequently updated and reviewed by MPR's team of pharmacists and physicians.

"Choosing an empiric antibiotic regimen can be daunting," said Dr. Chung. "The Drugs & Bugs App is a useful tool for selecting empiric antibiotic regimens before susceptibility results become available. The app also aids clinicians in the selection of antibiotic regimens with the narrowest spectrum possible based on susceptibility results." 

Drugs & Bugs is now available for Apple iOS (iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch) and Android (Android phones and tablets, Kindle Fire, NOOK) platforms and can be downloaded at empr.com/drugsandbugs, the
