Embase is a comprehensive pharmacological and biomedical database containing journals, conferences, in-depth drug indexing, drug and disease information and regulatory requirements.

In Embase you can search for a drug by any name that you know because drugs are indexed by chemical names, trade names, and laboratory/research codes that are mapped to generic names. It includes more than 30,000 drugs and chemicals.
