INFOTRIEVE FORMS ALLIANCE WITH SKILA.

Skila, Inc., Mahwah, N.J., business-to-business provider of web-based global business intelligence and eKnowledge solutions for the pharmaceutical, medical device and biotechnology industries, has announced an alliance with Infotrieve that will allow Skila users to access MEDLINE, the world's largest database of published medical literature. This alliance underscores Skila's continued commitment to providing global business intelligence recognized as a cornerstone for informed decision-making in today's highly competitive marketplace.

Skila's Global Healthcare Intelligence Platform(TM) uses Intelligration(TM) to integrate data from sources, including over 24,000 web sites, customers' internal databases, specialty publishers, news sources and government filings. Skila's clients will now also have access to MEDLINE, which is compiled and produced by the National Library of Medicine in Bethesda, Maryland and includes bibliographic citations dating back to 1966 and more than 8 million records from more than 4,000 journals published in more than 70 countries.

"In an era of global mergers and the race to be first to market, companies must leverage and capitalize on knowledge or risk falling behind the competition," said John Neeson, CEO of Skila, Inc. "Integrating a world renowned product, like MEDLINE, into our platform, enables our clients to maintain a competitive edge."
