Hi LeChi,
I never found the record referred to in the 785 tag either.
The title change took place v.60, no. 8 (Feb. 23, 1998).  The OCLC
record is 49262806.  The title is The pink sheet: prescription
pharmaceuticals and biotechnology.  At that time the ISSN was
1068-5324.  I'll have to dig through our back issues to find out when
the ISSN changed to present 1530-6240.

I don't have the authority to change existing OCLC records, I thought I
sent them a change request to close out #27695743 and correct 785 tag.
I guess I'll have to send it again.

Hope this helps.

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.
