What Future?

11 Jan 06

Perhaps the greatest challenge facing global drug development is the scarcity of new clinical research professionals entering the industry, bringing refreshing energy and ideas to their work, but lacking practical experience. Those involved in recruiting CR staff will be aware of this shortage and that experienced employees are seeking greater career management/development and rapid progression.

11 Jan 06

In the first article on acquisitions and joint ventures, we saw how despite the odds on an acquisition adding value for shareholders being only one in three, companies like Johnson & Johnson, Pfizer, Sosei and Amphion Innovations are still racing ahead. Now we take a glimpse at the similarly challenging world of joint ventures – and then look at how companies can increase the odds with a little forward planning.

Epilepsy

05 Sep 05

Epilepsy is characterised by a tendency to experience unprovoked seizures and is one of the most common neurological disorders. 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

As an interesting comparison, this is twice the current UK prison population.
