Diet aid site links to federal health research

A National Institutes of Health Web site about dietary supplements will now link to a National Library of Medicine database.

The 2-year-old Computer Access to Research on Dietary Supplements site originally was designed to compile federally funded dietary supplement research. To view CARDS, go to www.gcn.com and enter 154 in the GCN.com/box.

CARDS now stores about 1,180 records dating from 1999. Last year's data will start being added next month, followed by nutrition projects funded by non-NIH agencies, such as the Agriculture Department.

Contractor Altum Inc. of Chantilly, Va., worked with NIH's Office of Dietary Supplements to link CARDS to NLM's PubMed, a database of indexed abstracts from almost 4,500 journals published in more than 70 countries.

SRA International Inc. of Fairfax, Va., developed the CARDS database in 1999.
