drug-eluting stent

You are wrong.  It drug-eluting stent.

Yes it IS hyphenated, drug-eluting stent...
look up each definition..and it is drug-eluting stent. with hyphen.
Cypher stent
You are so right, I apologize for the incorrect information.

Okay...sock it to me..when I was even newer than I am now, I wrote "drug alluding stent."  QA sent a correction saying "drug eluding stent."  NOW, I see on Google, "drug eluting stent."  SOoooo, which is it, or are they both correct?  Thanks ahead of time.

It is drug-eluting, so there QA!!!

Yes, drug-eluting...

The company I work for gives daily info e-mails and actually got one on this a few months ago - is common to transcribe eluding or alluding if you haven't heard it before. 

As they say on "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire", drug-eluting............FINAL ANSWER!!!   
Drug-eluting stents. Link inside. sm.

It is hyphenated.  Check out Boston Scientific's site at the link below for some of their products.  One is as follows:   TAXUS® Express²™ paclitaxel-eluting coronary stent system.


s/l Seifer stent, Sifer stent, can't reference!


in-stent versus end-stent restenosis

Do these terms mean the same thing or each means something different? How can you tell if the doc means end or in? Thanks

Actually, it is CYPHER - nm
No, the correct name is Cypher. See msg
When looking on the internet, make sure that it is a REPUTABLE source (manufacturer's website, a reference to a journal article, etc.)  You can find all kinds of things "on the internet" but a lot of them are just not reputable.
Good drug book vs. internet drug sites
I need to buy a new drug book.  At a prior job, about a year ago, one of the supervisors told me she used the internet exclusively.  What's the consensus and if you prefer the internet, which site or sites do you like.  Thanks in advance.
Post drug questions on the drug board
Cipher stent
I have found it on the internet as such--Cipher stent
in-stent restenosis
means that a stent has been placed in the artery, and has clogged off again.  Never heard of end-stent, so I am thinking it is just slurred sounds for in-stent.
In-stent restenosis
I have always typed "in-stent"  for all heart doctors at my hospital.   Also found on Google. 
Eluting, but it is not hyphenated. nm
It's ELUTING. Your QA person is incorrect (tsk tsk). nm
that was supposed to be eluding vs. eluting
nevermind!  TGIF!
Help on the drug board--osteoporosis drug?
Sorry..........thanks in advance, I appreciate it.

What are you asking? Is this a drug--yes, sm

Can you help me with a drug? (sm)

sounds like "paraphosaphine".  I looked on every cancer site I knew, looked pyra, pira, fosa, phene, fene.  Couldn't find it anywhere.  Did I miss it?

best drug help website
Would be interested which is your fave drug reference source on the web for spellings, dosages, etc. - preferably one that doesn't result in tons of spam for illegal drug purchases - is there such a place?
Drug Screens
You are right! I would not be offended if asked to take a drug test - nothing to hide. I do not want someone having privy to my personal info who is on drugs and acting irresponsible. Had my identity stolen once, it is a nightmare to get straightened out. Don't want my SS# and other private info going to other countries either.

drug reference

I always use Drugs@FDA.  I have it in my favorites:  http://www.accessdata.fda.gov/scripts/cder/drugsatfda/

You can look up drug names by using as few as three letters.  I find it's quick and efficient, and it's free, and because it's the FDA it's the latest info on drugs.

Help on drug board if you have second :O)
Get a drug that you can sue the manufacturer for later. sm
Get cured now, get rich later. Check out the lawyers' ads on late night TV. "Did you take this drug? Are you still alive, just barely? Then call this toll free number now before you die so we can collect a settlement for you." Good luck.
Need help on drug board, please. TIA :)
They make a new drug...
