There are various possibilities.
1) A university library should be able to get it for you from a foreign

2) You can check whether Biomed. Lett. publishes on the Internet. A
good place to start your search would be Pedro's Research Tools
which can be found at various places in the world:
From a quick glance, it appears that Biomed. Lett. is not published on
Of course, you might also want to search one of the common search
engines (like Altavista or Yahoo) for "Biomedical Letters".

5) Finally, why not write directly to the author of the paper and ask
