Using uCentral to search MEDLINE

MEDLINE is the predominant component of PubMed.  It is the index of the medical literature in PubMed.  uCentral's MEDLINE search app is an excellent alternative to PubMed applications.  

uCentral Medline allows you to search by keyword, author, or journal.  You can also use limits for full text, language, subjects, publication type, and publication date. 

There is also a clinical search feature which lets you select therapy, diagnosis, etiology, or prognosis and determine if you want your search results to reflect precision or completeness.
