DDMAC issued an untitled letter to Cephalon for an HCP website for Trisenox, indicated for the treatment of acute promyelocytic leukemia.

The Alzheimer's Association partnered with AOL's MapQuest for a “site takeover” plugging the Alzheimer's Association's Walk to End Alzheimer's, including a Map Toolbar icon allowing users to search for walks near them.
