Monthly Prescribing Reference has released a Drugs & Bugs app that connects healthcare providers to the profiles of more than 100 antibiotics and almost 200 pathogens. The Apple- and Android- friendly app can also be used on the Kindle Fire and NOOK. It provides comparative charts by drug class and can be searched by pathogen, infection and drug names. Both MPR and MM&M are owned by Haymarket Media.
