Coronavirus (CoV) is a large family of viruses that cause mild-to-severe illnesses, with common symptoms, such as cough and cold. The severe forms include Middle East respiratory syndrome (MERS-CoV) and severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS-CoV). The novel CoV (nCoV) is a new strain of virus that hadn’t been previously detected in humans. These viruses are zoonotic in nature, which means they are transmitted between animals and human patients.
The first outbreak of COVID-19 was detected in Wuhan, Hubei province, China, with an epidemiological link to the Huanan Seafood Wholesale Market, where sale of live animals is conducted. After China's National Health Commission submitted reports, regarding the health condition of people and onset of the novel viral infection, to the World Health Or…

Trying to better manage type 2 diabetes but don’t know how? Zara Syed, Lead Pharmacist, Spirit Health Group, explains how specialist pharmacy support can help make it happen – all you need to do is send your prescription to the right place.
This year, around 200,000 people in the UK – roughly one every three minutes – will be diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes (T2D). For many, it will be a daunting prospect; the condition can lead to long-term complications such as sight loss, amputation or kidney failure, as well as increasing the risk of heart attack or stroke. However, while the potential implications of diabetes are well documented, the disease is commonly misunderstood. A high percentage of people think that T2D is untreatable and irreversible. Thankfully they’re mistaken. Managed properly…
Do medical device manufacturers bring new advantages to labelling compliance thanks to their engineering-orientated approach? asks Kallik’s David Bennett
Do medical device manufacturers bring new advantages to labelling compliance thanks to their engineering-orientated approach? asks Kallik’s David Bennett In the pharmaceutical world, labelling change management is a complex enough affair already. But it’s made all the more challenging because the physical labelling side tends to be handled by regulatory and manufacturing teams, while the artwork by design teams is typically managed at third-party agencies. None of this is well coordinated and it can be difficult to see the current status of output, the likely impact of planned changes, and what will be involved to roll out these changes wh…
