Subject: "The Pink Sheet" - New ISSN, but is it a title change?

I found OCLC#27695743 for the following title :   "F-D-C
reports. Prescription pharmaceuticals and biotechnology,"
with 246 title: "Pink sheet." DtSt: d.  Dates: 1993,2000.
ISSN 1068-5324.   785 tag indicates that it's continued by
"Pink Sheet," ISSN 1530-6240.  I could NOT find an oclc
record for this ISSN.

I have in hand a copy of "The Pink Sheet": Prescription
Pharmaceuticals and Biotechnology," Vol . 64, No. 12 (March
25, 2002).   At head of title in smaller print:  "F-D-C
Reports---"  The caption title in this issue seems to match
the 245 tag in the above oclc#.  Masthead title, however is:
"The Pink Sheet."   The ISSN in the masthead is 1530-6240.

Since I don't have access to the old issues, I wonder is
there was actually a title change.  Seems to me the
publisher (F-D-C Reports, Inc.) wished to change the title,
applied for a new ISSN and somehow decided not to change it?
If that is the case, can someone please confirm this?
Thanks for your help.
