MADRID - The definitive Spanish-language medical reference book and first ever medical dictionary written in Spanish is "one-third away from being completed" says Panamerica Medical Editorial President Hugo Brik, who cites the end of 2009 for when this ambitious Real Academia Nacional de Medicina publication will be made publicly available.

The release of the book is expected to fill a crucial market niche considering that all of the medical reference books used by doctors, medical students, and other industry professionals are translations from other languages, mostly English.

The dictionary is slated to contain over 50,000 entries, revised terms with their English equivalents, rules of usage, corrections, signs and abbreviations, and a biographical section of important personalities in medical history.
