New Medication Translations for World Travelers Now Available
Knowing Brand Name Equivalents Is Essential to Health and Safety January 19, 2011 (Radnor, PA)—HTH Worldwide, a global health and safety services
company, today announced the expansion of its mobile and online brand name medication
translation guide for world travelers. Prescription and over-the-counter drug names often vary by
country — for example Prilosec is called Lomac or Prilosid in India — so those traveling, living
or studying abroad need to be sure they are getting the precise equivalent of medications they
were prescribed at home. HTH Worldwide built, maintains and annually updates an international
database of over 6,200 brand names for nearly 400 compounds in 28 of the most frequently
visited countries around the world. The latest additions to the database include translations for
medications in South Korea, South Africa and the United Arab Emirates as well as a wider range
of drugs used to treat behavioral health (Valium is sold as Kratium or Valpam in Hong Kong) for
all 28 countries.
This proprietary worldwide database is the product of years of research by faculty at leading U.S.
medical research institutions and teaching hospitals. World travelers can access this vital
information by subscribing to mPassport (, a mobile and online personal
medical concierge or by purchasing TravelGap® or Global Citizen international health plans
from HTH Worldwide. Employers and universities also make this information available to their
employees, students and faculty when they purchase group health plans from HTH Worldwide.
“HTH is known for its specialized expertise and innovative approach to helping world travelers
find the right medical care from trusted doctors, hospitals and pharmacies,” said Angelo
Masciantonio, Chief Executive Officer of HTH Worldwide. “Our brand name medication
translation tools are a unique and critically important way for us to fulfill our mission.”
Brand name equivalents and their generic designations (Prilosec is Omeprazole, and Valium is
Diazepam) are available for these 27 countries and Hong Kong: Argentina, Australia, Brazil,
Canada, China, Egypt, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, India, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan,
Malaysia, Mexico, Poland, Russia, Singapore, South Africa, South Korea, Spain, Switzerland,
the United Arab Emirates, the United Kingdom and the United States.
