Use of Professional Judgment
Science is an ever-changing frontier. As new research and clinical trials
broaden our knowledge, changes in treatment and drug therapy are required. The
editors of GUWU have consulted sources believed to be reliable in their efforts
to provide information that conform to the standards of professional practice
that prevailed at the time of publication. However, in view of the possibility
of human error by the authors, editors, or publisher, nor any party who has been
involved in the preparation of the Licensed Materials are not responsible for
any errors or omissions or for the results obtained from use of such information.
Because of the uniqueness of each patient and the need to take into account a
number of concurrent considerations, the information contained in the Licensed
Materials should be used only as a general guide when caring for patients. Use
your professional judgment.
If any provision of this Agreement is determined to be invalid or unenforceable
under any applicable law, it shall be deemed omitted and the remaining
provisions shall continue in full force and effect. This Agreement may
be modified only in writing authorized by GUWU. GUWU's waiver of any
right shall not constitute a waiver of that or any other right in the

of North Carolina, USA. This Agreement constitutes the entire understanding
between the parties with respect to the subject matter hereof, and all
