MELVILLE, N.Y. – March 21, 2011 – Henry Schein, Inc. (NASDAQ: HSIC), a provider of healthcare products and services to office-based practitioners, today announced the launch of its new clinical publication for medical practitioners. Designed to serve as a quick information source on the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of disease, the BioTherapeutics Quarterly Journal offers today’s medical practitioners a concise read on the latest trends in disease prevention and treatment. Debuting in print last December, the Journal was published in February, and will subsequently be published in May, August and November, with an on-line version being introduced sometime in 2012.
The BioTherapeutics Quarterly Journal was conceived to highlight news on immunization practices, pharmaceutical interventions and diagnosis and treatment of disease. Each issue features a New Drug Approvals section to keep medical professionals informed of the latest FDA-approved pharmaceuticals, drug shortages, disease outbreaks and other late-breaking news.

relevant content to our customers. Our goal in producing this journal is to keep our
customers current on matters of prevention, diagnosis and treatment of disease,” said Louis Ferraro, Vice President and General Manager of BioTherapeutics for Henry Schein.
The new journal is the Company’s latest publication designed specifically for medical practitioners.
