Arava: the 'sixth drug' that may soon be under fire

08 Dec 04

At a recent hearing into the Vioxx affair, the FDA's Dr David Graham named five drugs that he considers too dangerous to be on the market. However, in his testimony, Dr Graham also cited Sanofi-Aventis' Arava as a drug he has recommended be withdrawn. Unlike the other five drugs, Arava has largely escaped the media spotlight, but there may yet be some tough questions asked about its safety.

Tigecycline offers new hope in the battle against MRSA

26 Nov 04

Study data presented at a major recent conference has demonstrated that Wyeth's novel antibacterial tigecycline acts against drug-resistant pathogens in some serious bacterial infections, including MRSA. While Wyeth will have to work hard to establish tigecycline in this competitive area, its encouraging tolerability profile could give it a useful advantage over existing treatments.

Learning From The Drug Debacle

24 Nov 04

The recent calamity surrounding Vioxx is one example of what can go awry in the pharmaceutical industry. US drug company Merck (NUSE: MRK) was forced to withdraw this painkiller after in-house studies showed that patients could be at greater risk of suffering heart attacks.

Influenza

19 Nov 04

Influenza is a global disease which imposes a huge medical and economic burden inevery country of the world. The UK is no exception with one caveat - the virus is probably monitored and tracked more in the UK than any other country around the globe. Over the years, GPs have played a leading role in estimating the quantitative impact of influenza. This started with the pioneering work of William Pickles in the Wensleydale villages and continued with Edgar Hope-Simpson in Cirencester.

ADHD children not coming to attention of doctors

17 Nov 04

School can be a difficult place at the best of times, however for the 20 million plus children in the seven major pharmaceutical markets that suffer from attention deficit and hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), it can be especially troubling. This exacerbated by the fact that many patients aren't receiving the best available treatment, according to new research from Datamonitor.

Hypertension and cardiovascular disease

09 Nov 04

Over the past 30 years, numerous clinical trials evaluating a variety of different classes of drugs have conclusively shown the benefit of blood pressure reduction in reducing the risk of strokes and cardiovascular mortality. Moreover, such trials have clearly demonstrated that blood pressure is unlikely to be controlled with a single drug and often two or more therapies are required to achieve blood pressure targets.

Double trouble hits Altana respiratory pipeline

05 Nov 04

Altana has announced the delay of its US application for Daxas until late 2005 due to clinical trial enrolment taking longer than originally anticipated. The news will be of further concern to the company's investors, coming on the back of the recent announcement that another of its respiratory drugs, Alvesco, failed to win full FDA approval.

The changing face of prostate cancer

04 Nov 04

Prostate cancer is the most common male malignancy in Western countries. Surgery and radiological procedures for localized prostate cancer offer the possibility for curative treatment. Prostate cancer also represents one of the most lucrative oncology indications for the pharmaceutical industry because drug-based treatment is often very effective at delaying disease progression, even in advanced disease, which encourages high-volume and long-term usage. The use of hormonal manipulation for advan

Encouraging Europharma Euphoria

01 Nov 04

The pharmaceutical and biotech industries are important contributors to the economies of European countries and are also major employers. If companies in these sectors are to continue to base themselves in Europe they must be seen as positive forces in the field of technology and healthcare rather than a negative drain on a country's finances.

Biotech and Beyond

29 Oct 04

The environment for drug development is tougher than it has ever been, with companies having to deal with a variety of political, regulatory, social and economic pressures in order to get their products to market. Few biotech companies have been able to devise a strategy to succeed in this hostile environment on their own, but there is no shortage of new entrants in the market.

All quiet on the vaccine front?

22 Oct 04

Vaccines represent one of the most effective weapons in the armoury of modern medicine. In an age where the benefits of healthcare interventions in relation to their costs are frequently debated in the media, it is easy to forget the tremendous health contribution that vaccines have made and the millions of lives they have saved.

Accelerating Drug Development and Limiting Failure of Phase I and II Clinical Trials

22 Oct 04

Limitations in the ability to optimize dose modification within the clinical trial setting represents a serious bottleneck in the drug development process. This barrier increases development time, causes the unnecessary early termination of valuable candidates and adds up to $300 million/drug in costs. Petra Biotek are set to knock down these barriers through their computer-based Cycle Dose Modification system. The positive impact that this technology is expected to have on the clinical developm

Cardiovascular risks of HRT confirmed

22 Oct 04

Treatment with combined estrogen/progestin doubles the risk of VTE in post-menopausal women and for obese women the risk is even higher, a recent study showed. However millions of women no longer taking HRT remain at risk of osteoporosis, which presents a huge market opportunity for non-hormonal classes in treating and preventing osteoporosis.

Peripheral arterial disease (PAD): A Significant Opportunity for Interventional Therapies

15 Oct 04

Peripheral arterial disease (PAD), caused by systemic atherosclerosis, is vastly underappreciated despite its abysmal mortality rates. With 5 and 10-year rates of 30% and 50% respectively mortality due to PAD is greater than that caused by coronary artery disease and stroke and is exceeded only by colorectal cancer. Better use of the pharmacological and interventional treatments available would dramatically improve the lives of the millions of PAD patients while at the same time ballooning the r

Don’t be scared of Assessment Centres

15 Oct 04

Recruitment is a very inexact science – the statistics in favour of making the right decision based on the traditional interview alone are horrifyingly low (the percentage is in single figures). This is a fact that has really only been acknowledged in recent years and, as a result, organisations have looked for ways to improve the success rate of their selection choices.

Flu season begins but a vaccine shortage awaits

14 Oct 04

The recent government suspension of the manufacturing license for major flu vaccine maker Chiron in the UK has left many countries facing a severe shortage in flu vaccine supply for the 2004-05 season. In the light of previous vaccine provision difficulties, Datamonitor's Laura Harris argues that, in the longer term, cell culture vaccines could resolve the annual flu vaccine quandary...
