Digital Medical Archive Debuts

A two-year project to digitize the entire archive of The Lancet -- the venerable weekly medical journal founded in 1823 -- will put an online treasure trove of medical wisdom accrued over the past 180 years at the fingertips of medical researchers and historians. A total of 340,000 articles are now compiled in a searchable database, including the earliest reports of medical breakthroughs such as blood transfusions and antibiotics, and modern scourges such as HIV/AIDS and Hepatitis C. Lancet editor Richard Horton says: "It is a marvelously inspiring chronicle, one that will encourage every reader to celebrate the unique contribution medicine makes to society."
