CAM on PubMed
CAM on PubMed, a database on the Web developed jointly by NCCAM and the National Library of Medicine, offers citations to articles in scientifically based, peer- reviewed journals on complementary and alternative medicine. It contains hundreds of thousands of citations, has links to abstracts or full text, and allows searchers to limit retrievals by publication type.
The Cochrane Library
The Cochrane Library is a collection of science-based reviews from the Cochrane Collaboration, an international nonprofit organization that seeks to provide "up-to-date, accurate information about the effects of health care." Abstracts of these reviews can be read on the Web without charge.
Clinical Trials Database
The ClinicalTrials.gov database is a registry and results database of federally and privately supported clinical trials conducted in the United States and around the world. ClinicalTrials.gov gives you information about a trial's purpose, who may participate, locations, phone numbers for more details, and in some cases the results of studies already completed. The link above is to a search of the database for studies concerning dietary supplements. The "Results by Topic" tab near the top of the page allows you to find research on a great many conditions, treatments, supplements, or the location of the trial.
