* The Food and Drug Administration has launched a national campaign aimed at protecting the public from fraudulent Internet pharmacies. Fraudulent companies may appear real but sell counterfeit or adulterated drugs, resulting in a failure to produce therapeutic effect or in adverse effects.

Diane S. Aschenbrenner is the course coordinator for undergraduate pharmacology at Johns Hopkins University School of Nursing in Baltimore, MD. She also coordinates Drug Watch: daschen1@jhu.edu.
