Erbitux: emerging data at ASCO reveal potential to further exploit benefits of the targeted EGFR therapy in mCRC

14 Jun 06

Data presented at the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) meeting in Atlanta this month suggest that administering the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) inhibitor Erbitux (cetuximab) fortnightly rather than weekly in metastatic colorectal cancer (mCRC) is a feasible option.

Osteoarthritis: the silent burden

08 Jun 06

Osteoarthritis is the leading cause of disability in the US, and is estimated to be the eighth most common cause of disability worldwide, with around 89 million adults in the seven major markets having a form of symptomatic osteoarthritis.

Should CATIE dictate choice of antipsychotic in chronic schizophrenia?

02 Jun 06

Psychiatrists attending this year’s Annual Psychiatric Association meeting heard new findings from the controversial CATIE (Clinical Antipsychotic Trials of Intervention Effectiveness) programme.

Adult acute leukemia: demand for innovative drugs that prolong survival

11 May 06

A new report estimates that there will be approximately 84,000 cases of adult and childhood leukemia in the world's seven major pharmaceutical markets in 2006.
