Addison's Disease Self Help Group newsletter, issue 92, June 2008

 

Welcome to the June issue. Drug issues are in the news again this summer with both good and bad news. The good news, on page 4, is that there are promising developments with the two new modified release hydrocortisone products now going through clinical trials. The bad news is that hydrocortisone and fludrocortisone supply problems have again hit parts of the UK. Please check the emergency supply procedures on the back page of the newsletter.
