The US Food and Drug Administration investigational device exemptions (IDE) and clinical investigation of cardiovascular devices: information for the investigator. (1/355)

The conduct of a clinical investigation of a medical device to determine the safety and effectiveness of the device is covered by the investigational device exemptions (IDE) regulation. The purpose of IDE regulation is "to encourage, to the extent consistent with the protection of public health and safety and with ethical standards, the discovery and development of useful devices intended for human use, and to that end to maintain optimum freedom for scientific investigators in their pursuit of this purpose" (Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act). Conducting a clinical investigation may require an approved IDE application. The US Food and Drug Administration encourages early interaction with the agency through the pre-IDE process during the development of a device or technology and during the preparation of an IDE application. This facilitates approval of the IDE application and progression into the clinical investigation. This paper reviews the terminology and applicability of the IDE regulation and the type of study that requires an IDE application to the Food and Drug Administration. The pre-IDE process and the development of an IDE application for a significant risk study of a cardiovascular device are discussed.  (+info)

Whose policy is it anyway? International and national influences on health policy development in Uganda. (2/355)

As national resources for health decline, so dependence on international resources to finance the capital and recurrent costs is increasing. This dependence, combined with an increasing emphasis on policy-based, as opposed to project-based, lending and grant-making has been accompanied by greater involvement of international actors in the formation of national health policy. This paper explores the process of health policy development in Uganda and examines how major donors are influencing and conflicting with national policy-making bodies. Focusing on two examples of user fees and drugs policies, it argues that while the content of international prescriptions to strengthen the health system may not be bad in itself, the process by which they are applied potentially threatens national sovereignty and weakens mechanisms for ensuring accountability. It concludes by proposing that in order to increase the sustainability of policy reforms, much greater emphasis should be placed on strengthening national capacity for policy analysis and research, building up policy networks and enhancing the quality of information available to the public concerning key policy changes.  (+info)

Financing pharmaceuticals in transition economies. (3/355)

This paper (a) provides a methodological taxonomy of pricing, financing, reimbursement, and cost containment methodologies for pharmaceuticals; (b) analyzes complex agency relationships and the health versus industrial policy tradeoff; (c) pinpoints financing measures to balance safety and effectiveness of medicines and their affordability by publicly funded systems in transition; and (d) highlights viable options for policy-makers for the financing of pharmaceuticals in transition. Three categories of measures and their implications for pharmaceutical policy cost containing are analyzed: supply-side measures, targeting manufacturers, proxy demand-side measures, targeting physicians and pharmacists, and demand-side measures, targeting patients. In pursuing supply side measures, we explore free pricing for pharmaceuticals, direct price controls, cost-plus and cost pricing, average pricing and international price comparisons, profit control, reference pricing, the introduction of a fourth hurdle, positive and negative lists, and other price control measures. The analysis of proxy-demand measures includes budgets for physicians, generic policies, practice guidelines, monitoring the authorizing behavior of physicians, and disease management schemes. Demand-side measures explore the effectiveness of patient co-payments, the impact of allowing products over-the-counter and health promotion programs. Global policies should operate simultaneously on the supply, the proxy demand, and the demand-side. Policy-making needs to have a continuous long-term planning. The importation of policies into transition economy may require extensive and expensive adaptation, and/or lead to sub-optimal policy outcomes.  (+info)

Thimerosal in vaccines: a joint statement of the American Academy of Pediatrics and the Public Health Service. (6/355)

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Modernization Act of 1997 called for FDA to review and assess the risk of all mercury-containing food and drugs. In line with this review, U.S. vaccine manufacturers responded to a December 1998 and April 1999 FDA request to provide more detailed information about the thimerosal content of their preparations that include this compound as a preservative. Thimerosal has been used as an additive to biologics and vaccines since the 1930s because it is very effective in killing bacteria used in several vaccines and in preventing bacterial contamination, particularly in opened multidose containers. Some but not all of the vaccines recommended routinely for children in the United States contain thimerosal.  (+info)

Self-medication of antibacterials without prescription (also called 'over-the-counter' use). A report of a Working Party of the British Society for Antimicrobial Chemotherapy. (7/355)

The availability of antimicrobial agents for self-medication may increase and could include antibacterial agents for oral or topical use. Wholesale deregulation of antibacterials would be undesirable and likely to encourage misuse of classes of agents currently important in the management of serious infections. Changed regulation from Prescription-Only Medicine (POM) to Pharmacy (P) medicine of selected agents with indications for short-term use in specific minor infections and illness is likely to have advantages to the user. However, safeguards to their use would need to be included in the Patient Information Leaflet (PIL). Agents and indications for self-medication are discussed. Any alteration in licensed status from POM to P will require careful risk-benefit assessment, including the likely impact on bacterial resistance. Safety issues also include concerns relating to age of the user, pregnancy, underlying disease and the potential for drug interactions. The importance of appropriate information with the PIL is emphasized, as is the role of the pharmacist, while ways of improving adverse event notification and monitoring are discussed. The paucity of good denominator-controlled data on the prevalence of in-vitro resistance is highlighted, and recommendations for improving the situation are made. There are currently no levels of resistance accepted by regulatory bodies on which to base a licensing decision, be it for granting a product licence, renewal of a licence or a change in licensed status from POM to P. Due consideration should be given to: the validation of user-defined indications in comparison with those medically defined; the enhancement of pharmacy advice in the purchase of such agents; improved safety monitoring; the establishment of systematic surveillance of susceptibility data.  (+info)

Recommendations regarding the use of vaccines that contain thimerosal as a preservative. (8/355)

On October 20, 1999, the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) reviewed information about thimerosal in vaccines and received updates from CDC's National Immunization Program and several vaccine manufacturers on the current and anticipated availability of vaccines that do not contain thimerosal as a preservative. The review was prompted by a joint statement about thimerosal issued July 8, 1999, by the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and the Public Health Service (PHS) (1) and a comparable statement released by the American Academy of Family Physicians (2). These statements followed a Congressionally mandated Food and Drug Administration (FDA) review of mercury in drugs and food, which included a reassessment of the use of thimerosal in vaccines.  (+info)

Biotherapeutic products (biotherapeutics) have a successful record in treating many life-threatening and chronic diseases. However, their cost has often been high, thereby limiting their access to patients, particularly in developing countries. Recently, the expiration of patents and/or data protection for the first major group of originators biotherapeutics has ushered in an era of products that are designed to be similar to a licensed originator product. These products rely, in part, for their licensing on prior information regarding safety and efficacy obtained with the originator products. The clinical experience and established safety profile of the originator products should contribute to the development of similar biotherapeutic products (SBPs). A variety of terms, such as biosimilar products, follow-on protein products and subsequent-entry biologics have been coined by different jurisdictions to describe these products.. The term generic medicine is used to describe chemical, ...

According to the invention, the identification information transmission path is separated from the system side, in order to wirelessly transmit information from a mobile authorisation device (30) of the user to the security module (20). To this end, the security module (20) comprises two interfaces (210, 212), namely one (210) for communication with the terminal (10) and another (212) for wireless communication with the mobile authorisation device (30). Said mobile authorisation device (30) supplies the security module (20) with identification information which is to be subjected to an authentication check therein, said information being either stored in a memory (312) in the authorisation device (30) or produced in other ways, for example, by biometric sensors, by a keyboard or the like. The security module (20) which checks the identification information, for example, preferably by means of a zero-knowledge method or a zero-knowledge protocol, only displays a request for action from a terminal
International research-focussed healthcare group Chiesi, has announced that the European Commission has granted the marketing authorisation for Lamzede® (velmanase alfa).. This is the first enzyme replacement therapy for the treatment of non-neurological manifestations in patients with mild to moderate alpha-mannosidosis (AM) - an ultra-rare, progressive, and debilitating disease. Patients present with a broad range of symptoms and their long-term prognosis is generally poor, with reduced life expectancy.1. The authorisation means velmanase alfa is now approved for use in the 31 European countries covered by the European Medicines Agency (EMA).. The Marketing Authorisation has been granted under exceptional circumstances according to the EU legislation, which aims to enable treatment of extremely rare disorders for which traditional large-scale clinical studies are not feasible.. Exposure to velmanase alfa has been investigated in 34 patients ranging in age from 6 to 35 years, in five ...

BEERSE, Belgium, Oct. 15, 2013- Janssen Submits Marketing Authorisation Application to European Medicines Agency for a Fixed-Dose Combination Tablet of HIV-1 Medicine Darunavir with Cobicistat.
Medicine development is an increasingly global activity, with the aspiration to develop a common data set to address the scientific needs of regulatory agencies around the world. A consolidated data package in a standardised format does conserve resources-on both sides of the table-and its availability does support the approach of simultaneous submissions of the dossier to two or more regulatory agencies-which in turn would lend itself to work sharing among regulatory agencies and stimulate the uptake of reliance models.22-24 The findings described in this paper contribute to the study of regulatory harmonisation by providing an analysis of the extent to which the regulatory outcomes between EMA and FDA were aligned, identical, or different for new medicines submitted for evaluation simultaneously to the two agencies. Our study demonstrates that there generally is alignment between NAS approval status for EMA and FDA and that drug applications were mostly approved by both agencies. Our analysis ...
ECHA regularly assesses the substances from the Candidate List to determine which ones should be included in the Authorisation List as a priority. The prioritisation is mainly based on information in the registration dossiers on uses and volumes of the substances on the EU market that fall within the scope of the authorisation requirement. Any information submitted during the previous step (i.e. the identification of SVHCs) will also be taken into consideration.. The consultation on the draft recommendation for inclusion of substances in the Authorisation List mainly concerns the proposed Authorisation List entries for the prioritised substances, which include details on timelines and exemptions. In this context, information on the complexity of the supply chain is particularly welcome. ECHA also welcomes comments on the review periods, the transitional arrangements and on those uses which could possibly be exempted from the authorisation requirement. When proposing such exemptions, the ...
Druids are perhaps the most versatile class when it comes to raiding, capable of doing just about anything and they are sometimes called on to do a little bit of everything. After all, with the exception of the Paladin, they are the only class in the game than can fulfill all three roles of healing, tanking and DPS at the same time.. Therefore, it is imperative that you get yourself a good Druid PvE guide to assist you in mastering all these aspects of your character. This is especially the case if you have just reached level 85 on your Druid and want to start running instances with your character.. You will need to have a good idea of what to expect, as well what others expect of you in a PvE environment.. To start with, a good Druid PvE guide should tell you how to heal properly, as a Restoration spec Druid can stand toe to toe with the best healers in the game. Excellent raid healers, their vast array of different spells and HoTs make them highly effective healers especially during those ...

Learning of the initial provisional authorisation granted in 2004, the claimants legal predecessor informed the German Patent and Trade Mark Office of this development. Time passed. In January 2006, a year and a half after the claimants legal predecessor had applied for a plant protection product certificate, the German Patent and Trade Mark Office decided to turn down the application. The reason given for the refusal was that the authorisation which enabled Poncho Pro to be put on the German market had been rather a special one. It had been an emergency authorisation granted in accordance with Article 8(4) of Directive 91/414. The Directives provision allows for a limited use of a plant protection substance where this appears necessary because of an unforeseeable danger that cannot be contained by other means. As such, the authorisation had run for only 120 days covering the period from 15 January 2004 until 13 May 2004. Since the claimants application had been made on the 14 May 2004, the ...

Bold simplicity is sometimes the very essence of what makes a great tone….uh…..great!. We think the Druid is possibly the greatest sounding single-knob fuzz being made today..

The production of biotherapeutics including antibodies and antibody fragments is a rapidly expanding market with an increasing number of products being approved for use. One of the major platforms used for production of such therapeutics is Escherichia coli, which offers a rapid production at low production costs. The favoured location for targeting these biotherapeutic is the periplasm of E. coli as this environment supports the formation of disulphide bonds and simplifies the purification process. There are a number of periplasmic release procedures currently practised in industry including osmotic shock. However their limitations call for the development of an improved generic periplasmic release method ...
Hyaluronic acid is commercially available on the European market for the indication of joint arthrosis, as either a medicinal product or as a medical device. The classification into one of the two product classes depends on the effect of the product on the human body. Marketing as a medicinal product implies pharmacological, metabolic or immunological activity. The mechanism of action stated by the manufacturer or the marketing authorisation holder has a decisive influence on this classification. If the molecular weight is under 1 million Da the pharmacological effect is thought to be dominant. Hyaluronic acid of higher molecular weight is said to act mainly by physical effects.. There is essentially no difference between the two classes of product with respect to safety in clinical studies. There are only minimal differences in the regulations on non-clinical studies or on the planning and performance of clinical studies.. Comparison of the studies performed with the medicinal product ...

So I kinda skimmed cause there were a lot of posts, but I have always thought it would be cool if the tanks spec for druids was moonkin, and we pull threat from all spells. I have never put much thought into how that would work for druids, but more for the game itself. If you increased the differentiation between what kind of tanks you need for certain encounters you could really open up the game more. For instance bosses that are more susceptible to casters would need a caster tank to hold agro. Or perhaps if bliz designed bosses that attacked using range and needed a lot of LOS within the strat, you would then need a ranged tank, ie. boomkin tank, could also be uses often for kiting adds throughout encounters, could be cool ...

The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) today commended House and Senate negotiators for agreeing on legislation to control 26 synthetic drugs under the Controlled Substances Act. These drugs include those commonly found in products marketed as K2 and Spice.. The addition of these chemicals to Schedule I of the Controlled Substances Act will be included as part of S. 3187, the Food and Drug Administration Safety and Innovation Act. Schedule I substances are those with a high potential for abuse; have no medical use in treatment in the United States; and lack an accepted safety for use of the drug.. In addition to scheduling the 26 drugs, the new law would double the length of time a substance may be temporarily placed in schedule I (from 18 to 36 months). In addition to explicitly naming 26 substances, the legislation creates a new definition for cannabamimetic agents, creating criteria by which similar chemical compounds are controlled. ...

Fortunately, potential landmark designation protects 1232 Druid Hill Avenue from demolition for the next six months. But because this is only a potential landmark nomination, these protections run out in July unless the Baltimore City Council takes action first. If a member of the City Council introduces an ordinance to list the property as a full city landmark before July, the protections are immediately extended for another eighteen months. If the City Council votes to approve the ordinance and the Mayor signs it into law before the end of that period, the city gives 1232 Druid Hill Avenue landmark status forever.. Last week, we reached out to Councilman Eric Costello (who represents the Upton neighborhood as part of the 11th District) to ask him to join us in protecting this landmark and introduce a landmark designation ordinance. If you are resident of the 11th District, we urge you to reach out to Councilman Costello and share your own support for preserving 1232 Druid Hill Avenue by ...

So… let me just say - the Druidic Order as presented in this book is really, really cool. I love the backstory, I love the intrigue, and I think its a phenomenal inspiration for druid-related stories.. But its also way too much to fit into a normal campaign. In my late review of the rogue handbook I gushed over the books thieves guild rules in a similar fashion. The difference is that those rules were simple to use and, more importantly, optional. These Druidic Order rules are a required class feature for the druid class.. Sure, theres a lot of neat stuff in here. Details on how challenges between druids play out, or the ways in which the Shadow Circle pits the various normal Circles against one another. Theres a lot of cool info about druidic festivities at the various moots, and discussions of how more powerful druids interact with new initiates.. And I would use absolutely none of it. This is all for one characters class, I might add. Either we force the entire rest of the party to ...
Ive always been a fan of high pivot bikes. Ever since those early years ridding Bromont with the Balfa crew, ive loved the concept and how the bikes worked for my style of ridding.. The high pivot is making a bit of comeback. Anyone following the past few World Cup seasons has surely seen Amaury Pierron laying waste to the gnarliest tracks aboard his Commencal. Norco has also adopted the concept on their HSP DH bike.. Ive been closely following the development of the Forbidden Bikes Druid. The Druid is an HSP, mid travel trail bike. I recently decided to pull the trigger on a frame, which I build up with some spare parts as well as some new trick bits such as the SRAM AXS group. It was baptism by fire for my shinny new Druid. She never even got a shakedown ride and was immediately thrown into the steeps and chunk in Quebec. So far the bikes has performed flawlessly and I am just dialling in the fit and contact points at this point. Suspension is mint. It certainly can gobble up the chunk but ...

Introduction On October 27, 1970, the Congress passed the Comprehensive Drug Abuse Prevention and Control Act (P.L. 91-513, 21 U.S.C. § 801 et seq.). According to the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), Title II of this Act, the Controlled Substances Act, is a consolidation of numerous laws regulating the manufacture and distribution of narcotics, stimulants, depressants, hallucinogens, anabolic steroids, and chemicals used in the illicit production of controlled substances and is the legal foundation of the governments fight against drugs and other substances.22 The Act also regulates all legal and illegal substances that are recognized as having potential for abuse or addiction. The DEA is charged with enforcing the Controlled Substances Act, including the regulation of controlled pharmaceuticals and regulated chemicals. Specifically, the DEAs diversion control program oversees and regulates the legal manufacture and distribution of controlled pharmaceuticals, which include narcotics ...
Aspartame was discovered in 1965 by a chemist working for the American company Searle and an initial marketing authorisation (MA) was granted in the United States by the Food and Drug Administration (US-FDA) in 1974. This MA was suspended a few months later following an appeal against the authorisation on the grounds that the toxic and carcinogenic effects on the brain of this compound and its metabolites had not been properly evaluated during the experimental studies. Following a reassessment of the studies on experimental animals and an examination of new data (including a study of carcinogenicity in the rat), the US-FDA granted this product a new MA in 1981 (US-FDA, FR 1981) for use in solid food. This authorisation was extended to soft drinks in 1983 (US-FDA, FR 1983) and for its use as a general sweetener in 1996. The safety of aspartame has been assessed and recognised by a number of other national and international organisations including the FAO/WHO Committee of Experts on Food Additives ...
The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) proposes to remove naloxegol ((5[alpha],6 [alpha])-17-allyl-6-((20-hydroxy-3,6,9,12,15,18- hexaoxaicos-1-yl)oxy)-4,5-epoxymorphinon-3,14-diol) and its salts from the schedules of the Controlled Substances Act (CSA). This scheduling action is pursuant to the CSA which requires that such actions be made on the record after opportunity for a hearing through formal rulemaking. Naloxegol is currently a schedule II controlled substance because it can be derived from opium alkaloids.

A medical practitioner contacted the Network with a question regarding whether hemp oil was legal in Minnesota and if he could have it available in his clinic for his patients.. The legality of Cannabidiol (CBD) oil has caused significant controversy. In December 2016 the federal Drug Enforcement Administration promulgated a final rule clarifying that CBD oil is a marijuana derivative, and as such is listed as a Schedule I substance under the Federal Controlled Substances Act (CSA). Schedule I drugs, substances, or chemicals are defined as drugs with no currently accepted medical use and a high potential for abuse.. In early 2017, the agency issued a clarification to the new rule specifically addressing the legal status of CBD oil. Essentially, the agency states that cannabinoids are not found in the parts of the cannabis plant that are excluded from the CSA definition of marijuana, and therefore they are listed on Schedule I. It should be noted that cannabis industry representatives have ...

After the FDA approved the first U.S. biosimilar, Sandozs Zarxio (filgrastim-sndz), earlier this year, many predicted that the floodgates would open for biosimilar products. That has not been the case. No other U.S. biosimilar product has been approved. In addition, Pfizer recently announced that Hospiras application (now owned by Pfizer) for a biosimilar version of Amgens Epogen (EPO) had been rejected, and that it intends to resubmit its application to FDA in the first half of 2016.. EPO is a more complex biologic product than Sandozs Zarxio. It is made in genetically engineered mammalian cells as opposed to bacteria. It is larger than Zarxio and it has sugar molecules (glycosylation) attached to it. Glycosylation is variable and depends on how the product is made and the cells that are used to make it. Because biosimilars are made in living cells, rather than chemically synthesized in a laboratory the way small molecule drugs are, they can at best be similar to the approved biologic ...

Though they can reduce the costs of health care, biosimilars still face challenges to access. In their article featured in Deep Dive: Market Access II, Monique Martin, Tony Lanzone and Michael Iacoviello consider the barriers and benefits.. Biosimilars, the legal almost-identical copies of biological drugs, have long been heralded as exciting new products which will allow healthcare systems to realise substantial savings. However, they have yet to make good on this promise.. To date, more than 40 biosimilars have launched in Europe, including: epoetin (EPO), insulin, human growth hormone (hGF), granulocyte-colony stimulating factor (G-CSF) and the two anti-tumour necrosis factors (anti-TNFs), etanercept and infliximab. However, these only cover a limited number of indications compared to those currently covered by biologics.. The US lags behind Europe, with only four biosimilar products launched to date. This is due, in part, to the fact that the special 351(k) regulatory pathway (Biologics ...
Following its approval by the FDA, the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) moved to re-schedule the drug from a Schedule 1 controlled substance under the CSA, to a Schedule 5 controlled substance. At the time, the FDA argued that this decision didnt go far enough, writing in a letter to the DEA that CBD and its salts… do not have a significant potential for abuse and could be removed from the [Controlled Substances Act (CSA)], adding, we find that CBD does not meet the criteria for placement in any of Schedules II, III, IV, or V under the CSA ...

The COVID-19 pandemic has brought to the fore the critical importance of universal affordable access to internet connectivity. Despite efforts from the different stakeholders, universal affordable access is far from being achieved, as existing national operators focus their efforts on using technologies and building infrastructure in more profitable areas. This means sparsely populated areas, where household incomes are low and infrastructure costs are high, remain unconnected. As a result, there is an emerging consensus regarding the need to do something different from business as usual.. Based on recent changes in the telecommunications industry, this paper analyses solutions for the expansion of the telecommunication operator ecosystem. In particular it focuses on the local operator as the actor to fill the coverage and usage gaps left by national operators, in a complementary way. These local operators serve a much smaller and more distinct market, with deeper knowledge of their users, ...

Iron is commonly found in the Earth's crust in the form of an ore, usually an iron oxide, such as magnetite or hematite. Iron is extracted from iron ore by removing the oxygen through its combination with a preferred chemical partner such as carbon which is then lost to the atmosphere as carbon dioxide. This process, known as smelting, was first applied to metals with lower melting points, such as tin, which melts at about 250 °C (482 °F), and copper, which melts at about 1,100 °C (2,010 °F), and the combination, bronze, which has a melting point lower than 1,083 °C (1,981 °F). In comparison, cast iron melts at about 1,375 °C (2,507 °F).[4] Small quantities of iron were smelted in ancient times, in the solid state, by heating the ore in a charcoal fire and then welding the clumps together with a hammer and in the process squeezing out the impurities. With care, the carbon content could be controlled by moving it around in the fire. Unlike copper and tin, liquid or solid iron dissolves ...
