Epilepsy

Over 2% of the population will experience a seizure at some time in their life, and recurrent unprovoked seizures will require treatment in approximately one-in-200 people at any given time. Treatment of epilepsy remains important in helping to reduce the psychological and social sequelae which follow on from uncontrolled seizures.

Schizophrenia

22 Aug 05

It is often forgotten that until the late 1950s there was no treatment for schizophrenia, or for that matter, any other severe enduring mental illness. The majority of patients admitted to asylum care never left: hence the peak occupancy of 150,000 reported in the UK in 1955. As an interesting comparison, this is twice the current UK prison population.

Chronic viral hepatitis: B is for billions

28 Jun 05

Despite recent advances in the treatment and management of hepatitis B, the market is still relatively immature, with several key unmet needs. Current pipeline products are expected to account for 89% of total market sales by 2015, however other developmental antivirals are also expected to contribute significantly to future market growth, potentially resulting in new treatment paradigms.

Diabetes

17 Jun 05

The ancient Egyptians thought that diabetes was due to an ‘imbalance of the four bodily elements’ and that the best treatment to give these patients was a mixture of ground earth, water, wheat and lead. Thankfully, things have improved a little since then! In fact, the most important advance in diabetes management occurred in 1921 when the young surgeon Frederick Banting and the even younger medical student, Charles Best, first isolated insulin.

Bipolar Disorder

31 May 05

Next to schizophrenia, bipolar disorder is the most important condition for psychiatrists to recognise and treat. Indeed, the discovery by John Cade in 1949 of lithium as an effective treatment for mania,1 and the finding in 1952 of chlorpromazine as an effective agent for acute psychotic states including mania, heralded the beginning of the modern era of psychopharmacology.

One-in-100 people will experience this serious mental illness at some time in their lives, though it commonly starts in the late teens to the early 20s in men and early to late 20s in women.

Addressing the crisis facing the Clinical Research Staffing market

29 Apr 05

The Healthcare Industry is currently experiencing the effects of a global shortage of qualified and experienced clinical research professionals – and this situation has evolved into the industry’s very own version of ‘Catch 22’. While employers are looking to hire candidates who are already experienced in the practice of clinical research, new Life Science graduates and others wishing to start on a career in the Healthcare Industry are unable to gain such experience without first being hired.

InterMune's hepatitis strategy gets the right response

11 Feb 05

A significant rise in sales of InterMune's hepatitis drug Infergen, from $9.3 million in 2003 to $22.3 million in 2004, is the result of the company's focus on marketing Infergen to HCV non-responders.
