and visits his pharmacist who reviews the possible side effects of PREZISTA.

"As a physician, I know from experience that people tend to learn in different ways, and that can pose different kinds of challenges for patients trying to educate themselves about their medications," said Bryan Baugh, MD, Medical Director at Janssen Therapeutics.  "We designed The PREZISTA Zone to meet a variety of personal preferences for learning and interacting with online information. We're very excited to introduce this pilot program; it hasn't been done before for products like PREZISTA."

In a recent omnibus survey of 1,047 people, which was sponsored by Janssen Therapeutics, 60 percent of those surveyed agreed it would be helpful to review Patient Information in an animated version that can be viewed and listened to online.[1]

"When you have a chronic illness, starting treatment for the first time or switching your medication can sometimes be overwhelming," said Jeff Berry,* Director of Publications, Test Positive Aware Network (TPAN) in Chicago. "This interactive version of Patient Information is an innovative approach to helping people learn about their medicines based on information from the FDA-approved patient labeling.  I hope this initiative will encourage the development of other educational tools that go beyond the printed page."

*Jeff Berry is a paid consultant for Janssen Therapeutics.
