Breakthrough Pain: Acute pain that comes on rapidly despite the use of pain medication.Nociceptive Pain: Dull or sharp aching pain caused by stimulated NOCICEPTORS due to tissue injury, inflammation or diseases. It can be divided into somatic or tissue pain and VISCERAL PAIN.Pain: An unpleasant sensation induced by noxious stimuli which are detected by NERVE ENDINGS of NOCICEPTIVE NEURONS.Administration, Buccal: Administration of a soluble dosage form between the cheek and gingiva. It may involve direct application of a drug onto the buccal mucosa, as by painting or spraying.Pain Measurement: Scales, questionnaires, tests, and other methods used to assess pain severity and duration in patients or experimental animals to aid in diagnosis, therapy, and physiological studies.Analgesics, Opioid: Compounds with activity like OPIATE ALKALOIDS, acting at OPIOID RECEPTORS. Properties include induction of ANALGESIA or NARCOSIS.Fentanyl: A potent narcotic analgesic, abuse of which leads to habituation or addiction. It is primarily a mu-opioid agonist. Fentanyl is also used as an adjunct to general anesthetics, and as an anesthetic for induction and maintenance. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p1078)Analgesics: Compounds capable of relieving pain without the loss of CONSCIOUSNESS.Labor Pain: Pain associated with OBSTETRIC LABOR in CHILDBIRTH. It is caused primarily by UTERINE CONTRACTION as well as pressure on the CERVIX; BLADDER; and the GASTROINTESTINAL TRACT. Labor pain mostly occurs in the ABDOMEN; the GROIN; and the BACK.Neuralgia: Intense or aching pain that occurs along the course or distribution of a peripheral or cranial nerve.Pain Management: A form of therapy that employs a coordinated and interdisciplinary approach for easing the suffering and improving the quality of life of those experiencing pain.Pain Threshold: Amount of stimulation required before the sensation of pain is experienced.Chronic Pain: Aching sensation that persists for more than a few months. It may or may not be associated with trauma or disease, and may persist after the initial injury has healed. Its localization, character, and timing are more vague than with acute pain.Nociceptors: Peripheral AFFERENT NEURONS which are sensitive to injuries or pain, usually caused by extreme thermal exposures, mechanical forces, or other noxious stimuli. Their cell bodies reside in the DORSAL ROOT GANGLIA. Their peripheral terminals (NERVE ENDINGS) innervate target tissues and transduce noxious stimuli via axons to the CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM.Pain, Postoperative: Pain during the period after surgery.Analgesia, Epidural: The relief of pain without loss of consciousness through the introduction of an analgesic agent into the epidural space of the vertebral canal. It is differentiated from ANESTHESIA, EPIDURAL which refers to the state of insensitivity to sensation.Pain, Intractable: Persistent pain that is refractory to some or all forms of treatment.Prescription Drug Misuse: Improper use of drugs or medications outside the intended purpose, scope, or guidelines for use. This is in contrast to MEDICATION ADHERENCE, and distinguished from DRUG ABUSE, which is a deliberate or willful action.Double-Blind Method: A method of studying a drug or procedure in which both the subjects and investigators are kept unaware of who is actually getting which specific treatment.Chronic Disease: Diseases which have one or more of the following characteristics: they are permanent, leave residual disability, are caused by nonreversible pathological alteration, require special training of the patient for rehabilitation, or may be expected to require a long period of supervision, observation, or care. (Dictionary of Health Services Management, 2d ed)Neoplasms: New abnormal growth of tissue. Malignant neoplasms show a greater degree of anaplasia and have the properties of invasion and metastasis, compared to benign neoplasms.Arthralgia: Pain in the joint.Low Back Pain: Acute or chronic pain in the lumbar or sacral regions, which may be associated with musculo-ligamentous SPRAINS AND STRAINS; INTERVERTEBRAL DISK DISPLACEMENT; and other conditions.Back Pain: Acute or chronic pain located in the posterior regions of the THORAX; LUMBOSACRAL REGION; or the adjacent regions.Treatment Outcome: Evaluation undertaken to assess the results or consequences of management and procedures used in combating disease in order to determine the efficacy, effectiveness, safety, and practicability of these interventions in individual cases or series.Abdominal Pain: Sensation of discomfort, distress, or agony in the abdominal region.Neck Pain: Discomfort or more intense forms of pain that are localized to the cervical region. This term generally refers to pain in the posterior or lateral regions of the neck.Medication Errors: Errors in prescribing, dispensing, or administering medication with the result that the patient fails to receive the correct drug or the indicated proper drug dosage.Medication Adherence: Voluntary cooperation of the patient in taking drugs or medicine as prescribed. This includes timing, dosage, and frequency.Palliative Care: Care alleviating symptoms without curing the underlying disease. (Stedman, 25th ed)Pelvic Pain: Pain in the pelvic region of genital and non-genital origin and of organic or psychogenic etiology. Frequent causes of pain are distension or contraction of hollow viscera, rapid stretching of the capsule of a solid organ, chemical irritation, tissue ischemia, and neuritis secondary to inflammatory, neoplastic, or fibrotic processes in adjacent organs. (Kase, Weingold & Gershenson: Principles and Practice of Clinical Gynecology, 2d ed, pp479-508)Pain Perception: The process by which PAIN is recognized and interpreted by the brain.Questionnaires: Predetermined sets of questions used to collect data - clinical data, social status, occupational group, etc. The term is often applied to a self-completed survey instrument.Facial Pain: Pain in the facial region including orofacial pain and craniofacial pain. Associated conditions include local inflammatory and neoplastic disorders and neuralgic syndromes involving the trigeminal, facial, and glossopharyngeal nerves. Conditions which feature recurrent or persistent facial pain as the primary manifestation of disease are referred to as FACIAL PAIN SYNDROMES.Prospective Studies: Observation of a population for a sufficient number of persons over a sufficient number of years to generate incidence or mortality rates subsequent to the selection of the study group.Acute Pain: Intensely discomforting, distressful, or agonizing sensation associated with trauma or disease, with well-defined location, character, and timing.Pain, Referred: A type of pain that is perceived in an area away from the site where the pain arises, such as facial pain caused by lesion of the VAGUS NERVE, or throat problem generating referred pain in the ear.Anti-Inflammatory Agents, Non-Steroidal: Anti-inflammatory agents that are non-steroidal in nature. In addition to anti-inflammatory actions, they have analgesic, antipyretic, and platelet-inhibitory actions.They act by blocking the synthesis of prostaglandins by inhibiting cyclooxygenase, which converts arachidonic acid to cyclic endoperoxides, precursors of prostaglandins. Inhibition of prostaglandin synthesis accounts for their analgesic, antipyretic, and platelet-inhibitory actions; other mechanisms may contribute to their anti-inflammatory effects.Retrospective Studies: Studies used to test etiologic hypotheses in which inferences about an exposure to putative causal factors are derived from data relating to characteristics of persons under study or to events or experiences in their past. The essential feature is that some of the persons under study have the disease or outcome of interest and their characteristics are compared with those of unaffected persons.Severity of Illness Index: Levels within a diagnostic group which are established by various measurement criteria applied to the seriousness of a patient's disorder.Time Factors: Elements of limited time intervals, contributing to particular results or situations.Radionuclide Generators: Separation systems containing a relatively long-lived parent radionuclide which produces a short-lived daughter in its decay scheme. The daughter can be periodically extracted (milked) by means of an appropriate eluting agent.Shoulder Pain: Unilateral or bilateral pain of the shoulder. It is often caused by physical activities such as work or sports participation, but may also be pathologic in origin.Quality of Life: A generic concept reflecting concern with the modification and enhancement of life attributes, e.g., physical, political, moral and social environment; the overall condition of a human life.Follow-Up Studies: Studies in which individuals or populations are followed to assess the outcome of exposures, procedures, or effects of a characteristic, e.g., occurrence of disease.Musculoskeletal Pain: Discomfort stemming from muscles, LIGAMENTS, tendons, and bones.Patient Satisfaction: The degree to which the individual regards the health care service or product or the manner in which it is delivered by the provider as useful, effective, or beneficial.Comorbidity: The presence of co-existing or additional diseases with reference to an initial diagnosis or with reference to the index condition that is the subject of study. Comorbidity may affect the ability of affected individuals to function and also their survival; it may be used as a prognostic indicator for length of hospital stay, cost factors, and outcome or survival.Medication Reconciliation: The formal process of obtaining a complete and accurate list of each patient's current home medications including name, dosage, frequency, and route of administration, and comparing admission, transfer, and/or discharge medication orders to that list. The reconciliation is done to avoid medication errors.Medication Systems: Overall systems, traditional or automated, to provide medication to patients.Cohort Studies: Studies in which subsets of a defined population are identified. These groups may or may not be exposed to factors hypothesized to influence the probability of the occurrence of a particular disease or other outcome. Cohorts are defined populations which, as a whole, are followed in an attempt to determine distinguishing subgroup characteristics.Medication Systems, Hospital: Overall systems, traditional or automated, to provide medication to patients in hospitals. Elements of the system are: handling the physician's order, transcription of the order by nurse and/or pharmacist, filling the medication order, transfer to the nursing unit, and administration to the patient.

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety of BEMA fentanyl at any dose in the management of breakthrough pain in cancer subjects on background opioid therapy. The standard of care for these breakthrough pain episodes is a rapid onset, short acting analgesic with minimal associated sleepiness. Oral morphine, oxycodone and hydromorphone are routinely used, but because of slow and variable oral absorption, the pain control is not the best with these products. Oral transmucosal fentanyl citrate (OTFC) has been used successfully in treating breakthrough pain episodes associated with cancer. OTFC is a lozenge of fentanyl on a stick and is administered by continuously swabbing the interior of the subjects mouth until the product is dissolved (approximately 15 to 30 minutes). The buccal route of administration avoids the ...
Breakthrough pain (BTP) is episodic pain that emerges through the treatment of otherwise well-managed chronic background pain. Often called pain flare or transient pain, BTP negatively affects the function and quality of life of the patient and often results in a number of other physical, psychological and social problems. Breakthrough pain is a common occurrence affecting approximately two-thirds of the estimated 50 to 100 million chronic pain sufferers in the US.
Breakthrough pain is sudden, brief pain that occurs during a period when chronic pain is generally well controlled (typically, controlled with opiods). Breakthrough pain may happen when the patient is at rest or be related to activity or a change of position. Click here for instructions on navigating the ONS PEP webpages.

Nociceptive Pain and Neuropathic pain are two different types which refer to the source of the physiological trigger of a pain. When we say Nociceptive pain it can either be Somatic or Visceral in nature. Somatic pain is because of a physical injury triggered to a human body part just like a bone, joint or human body tissue. Sprains, bumps, bruises and some kinds of inflammation because of infection or arthritis all fall under this group of pain as well. Some obstructions and Myofascial pain because of muscle abnormalities is also under this group of pain. Nociceptive pain is for probably the most part localized in the area thats suffering from a personal ...

How Can Mesothelioma Pain Be Treated With the Use of Medication?. One of the main ways by which mesothelioma pain can be treated is with the use of proper medication.. However,the type of medicine and the way the medicine is given depend on the type and cause of pain. For example, chronic pain is best relieved by methods that deliver a steady dose of pain medicine over a long period of time, such as a patch that releases medicine through the skin or slow-release oral tablets. On the other hand, breakthrough pain {Breakthrough pain is flare of pain that happens even though you are taking pain medicine regularly for persistent pain. Its called ...

The term somatic pain refers to pain from the skin, muscles, joints and bones. It can be divided into deep and superficial somatic pain, it is easier to locate and usually more intense than visceral pain. Most of the time the pain that we perceive in everyday life is somatic pain, often associated with superficial injury to the skin surface, muscle strain and impact on the joints. Generally a person is more accustomed to somatic pain and can easily identify its origin and take appropriate action where possible to remove the offending agent or at least seek medical treatment and report the location and nature of the pain to a doctor.. This, however, differs with visceral pain. It may sometimes not be as ...

Nociceptive pain: Most pain is nociceptive pain. This type of pain is typically aching, sharp, or throbbing. Pain receptors for tissue injury (nocioreceptors) are located mostly in the skin or in the internal organs. These nocioreceptors are nerve fibers in the body that only send signals to the brain when they receive strong stimulation, such as with pain. Damage to these nocioreceptor neurons alters the way that they can respond to neurochemicals and makes them more sensitive after injury, which may be the cause of some types of chronic pain. Damage also causes the cells to release chemical mediators of pain and inflammation, including potassium ions, bradykinin, prostaglandins, serotonin, histamine, and ...

Children with ROHHAD are seemingly normal before the rapid-onset weight gain, making the diagnosis even more challenging to parents and health care personnel. Between 1.5 and 7 years of age, these children begin to manifest abnormalities that will evolve into the features of ROHHAD. Most commonly, the first sign is dramatic (often 20-30 pounds) and rapid (over 6 to 12 months) weight gain with associated abnormal increase in hunger (hyperphagia). This rapid-onset obesity is considered a sign of hypothalamic dysfunction (abnormality of the endocrine system). Other hypothalamic abnormalities may not be detected at the time of the rapid weight gain, but will be identified any time from months to years following the rapid-onset obesity. These other hypothalamic/endocrine abnormalities may include inability to maintain normal water balance in the body (leading to abnormally high or low sodium levels), high prolactin levels, low thyroid hormone, early or late puberty, and low cortisol among other ...
Onsolis (fentanyl buccal soluble film) has been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for the treatment of breakthrough cancer pain.[1]. Pain may be a side effect of cancer treatment or may be caused by the cancer itself. If not adequately managed, pain may have a tremendous effect on quality of life. Many cancer patients with chronic pain receive treatment with an opioid; however, they continue to experience flares of pain referred to as breakthrough pain. Breakthrough pain can become intensely painful within a few minutes, yet an opioid can take up to 30-60 minutes to take effect.. Onsolis delivers a potent opioid drug called fentanyl through an absorbable film that adheres to ...
Tools/Technologies: The NIDAP Research Program develops (or adapts in an innovative manner) various stress (emotional, painful) induction PET imaging research paradigms to facilitate investigation of specific neuroimmune interactions in-vivo in humans. Examples of such paradigms include a standardized deep-tissue pain challenge, mood induction paradigm, and a novel Virtual Reality based paradigm. The novel VR paradigm leverages portable VR technologies and study-tailored scripts to facilitate in-vivo dynamic PET imaging of stress-related moderation of neuroimmune interactions in depression and pain states. These research paradigms are designed to fit within the framework of traditional neuroimaging scans using both Positron Emission Tomography (PET) and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI). NIDAP has collaborated, via the Interdisciplinary PET Research Working Group, to guide local production of 2 radiotracer ...

Pain can be classified into two broad categories: Nociceptive pain and Neuropathic pain.. These categories can be metaphorically explained by a broken mobile phone. In the first case the mobile phone slipped from your hand and was crashed on the floor (nociceptive pain); In the second case, your mobile phone is physically fine but the microprocessor responsible for making everything work well has having some trouble, so, many functions of your mobile phone are not working well (neuropathic pain).. Below you will find the IASP definitions for nociceptive and neuropathic pain:. Nociceptive pain. Pain that arises from actual or threatened damage to non-neural tissue and is due ...
Whatever the exact definition, practically BTcP is a transient exacerbation of pain that occurs despite well-controlled background pain, by giving around the clock opioid administration able to provide at least mild analgesia [24]. It is distinguishable from background pain by being transient or episodic and breaking through the stable, controlled chronic background pain. About the pain features, it can manifest itself as somatic, visceral, neuropathic, or mixed pain, and baseline pain may have the same classification or a different classification. According to this information, the phenomenon of BTcP should be expected in about 70 % of patients, despite receiving effective regular opioids in doses of ≥60 mg/day of oral morphine equivalents, able to provide acceptable ...
The primary event in the ischemic stroke is a rapid decline in the oxygen levels after the loss of blood flow in specific areas of the brain. Subsequent pathological processes results in a central core area of severely ischemic tissue surrounded by a region of moderate ischemic tissue (penumbra) with a preserved cellular metabolism. The outcome of an ischemic stroke depends on the size of the infarct core and the potential to salvage the cells in the penumbra, which is hypoperfused, and therefore, at risk of infarction but still viable. Such viable penumbral tissue can be rescued by quick interventions that can increase oxygen levels or slow metabolism in the ischemic area to minimize oxidative injury on reperfusion.. Several strategies have been investigated to rescue ischemic tissue using experimental models, especially rodents, but largely failed in subsequent clinical trials. The rabbit model of ischemic stroke using embolic clot is a promising model for developing effective strategies. This ...

PAIN IN THE DYING PHASE. When the patient is no longer able to swallow oral morphine, change to:. • Continuous diamorphine (or morphine) infusion via a syringe driver (see Relative doses of Opiods).. • Prescribe a PRN dose of subcutaneous diamorphine (or morphine) for breakthrough pain one sixth of the total 24- hour dose of diamorphine. This can be given as frequently as necessary and increased in proportion to any increase in 24-hour dose.. • If the patient is still in pain and the PRN diamorphine (or morphine) has been found to be effective, the 24-hour dose of subcutaneous diamorphine (or morphine) may be increased by the sum of the PRN doses given in the previous 24 hours. For patients requiring rapidly escalating doses of opioids, contact the Specialist Palliative Care Team for advice.. ...

It was hypothesized that an improvement in ...
Fentanyl is a synthetic opioid that is administered legally by doctors during surgical procedures, or in small doses during colonoscopies and endoscopies, said Dr. Charles Argoff, a pain specialist at Albany Medical Center. It may also be used, typically in a transdermal patch that releases the painkiller slowly, for patients with severe pain who need round-the-clock relief and have already developed a tolerance to less potent opioids, he said. Other forms of fentanyl are used for cancer patients who experience breakthrough pain despite being on other medications.. But when fentanyl is mixed with illicit drugs and injected, the potent pain reliever gets to the bloodstream fast. Federal health agencies estimate that it is 50 to 100 times stronger than heroin.. That means it is more likely to kill, especially ...
Do not touch the sticky side of the patch or the gel. Fentanyl can be quickly absorbed through the eyes and mouth and can be extremely dangerous. If you do touch the sticky side of the patch or gel, let your nurse or doctor know right away and rinse the area with large amounts of water. Do not use soaps or other cleansers. Check with your doctor at regular times while using fentanyl. Be sure to report any side effects. After you have been using this medicine for awhile, "breakthrough" pain may occur more often than usual, and it may not be relieved by your regular dose of medicine. If this occurs, do not increase the amount of fentanyl skin patch or other narcotic that you are using without first checking with your doctor. This medicine will add to the effects of alcohol and other CNS depressants. CNS depressants are medicines that slow down the nervous system, which may cause drowsiness or make you less alert. Some examples of CNS depressants are ...

Tell your doctor or health care professional if your pain does not go away, if it gets worse, or if you have new or a different type of pain. You may develop tolerance to the medicine. Tolerance means that you will need a higher dose of the medicine for pain relief. Tolerance is normal and is expected if you take the medicine for a long time. If you need to use more than 4 units per day, call your doctor or health care professional. If you do not finish the whole unit each time you have an episode of breakthrough pain or your if pain is not relieved after finishing a whole unit, call your doctor or health care professional.. Do not suddenly stop taking your medicine because you may develop a severe reaction. Your body becomes used to the medicine. This does NOT mean you are addicted. Addiction is a behavior related to ...

When I saw Gini at the clinic in early February, things were so stable we decided I didnt need to come back for three months. Unfortunately, I didnt realize the effect some treatment changes would have on my pain in the interim. In late January, after a short chemo break, I was switched to daily Tamoxifen pills. My late January CT scan found a tumour on my right femoral neck that put me at risk of fracture and was subsequently treated with radiation. In March, I started a double-blind clinical trial where I was either continuing my bone-building Pamidronate treatment (but every four weeks instead of three) or I was getting Zometa, a similar drug. Put them all together and my pain, or rather my pains, increased. I was taking long-acting hydromorphone contin (a narcotic), Lyrica (for nerve pain) and Naprosyn (an anti-inflammatory) as well as hydromorphone (AKA Dilaudid) for ...
Pain is one of the most feared symptoms for patients who are facing end-of-life issues. Management of this pain often requires high doses of morphine. Unfortunately, physicians are reluctant to prescribe these high doses because of concerns about side effects and causing premature deaths. Bercovitch and associates studied the characteristics of patients requiring high-dose morphine for pain control, the incidence of side effects and the impact on survival for patients at the end of life.. For two years, the charts of all patients admitted to a hospice program were reviewed.

The focus of most of modern Western medicine is to heal patients when they are sick. Recently, however, there has been a greater emphasis on improving the quality of life of patients when that is all that can be accomplished. The American Medical Association and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation funded an entire program for physicians, the Education in Palliative and End-of-Life Care Project, to emphasize care of patients near the end of life.1. The article by Drs. Clary and Lawson in this issue of American Family Physician is a useful and concise source of information on symptom management in patients at the end of life.2 Consistent emphasis on pain relief is crucial. There are a variety of studies showing that pain can severely impair patients quality of life, as well as put them at risk of depression and suicide.3 For constant pain, it is most effective to use both a continuous long-acting ...
The celiac plexus is a nerve bundle located in the upper abdomen behind the pancreas and near the aorta. It connects the pancreas, gallbladder, intestines, liver and stomach with the brain and spinal cord. The nerve block can help a patient avoid breakthrough pain.. The celiac plexus nerve block is a procedure that damages the celiac plexus nerves so they can not send pain messages to the brain. It is a procedure used for patients with intense abdominal pain such as chronic pancreatitis or pancreatic cancer. ...
There are cases where chronic severe Migraine (or in my case Cluster Headaches) can only be treated with traditional long acting opiates. I have been suffering with Cluster Headaches AND Migraines for 22 years (since I was 18). I get the worst of both worlds. Its quiet unfair... kind of like a bald man with dandruff!  Neurologists have argued and disagreed on whether I get one or the other for too many years until an ER visit that lasted about 6 hours of treatment, witnessing the entire process, deemed I get both since I definitely have real Clusters but get aura hours after the initial attach starts. After 22 years and more doctors than I can count trying to treat me without success the ONLY relief I have ever received was with opiates. The pain gets so intense that I have lesions in my brain from stroking not being treated soon enough. I am now on Morphine Sulfate ER all the time and a short acting opiate for breakthrough ...

Defects in axonal transport are implicated in a range of neurodegenerative diseases, including ALS, Huntingtons disease, and Alzheimers disease. Here, we describe for the first time a complete mechanism for how axonal transport defects may lead to severe neurodegeneration. This mechanism shows how extracellular signaling from mSOD1-expressing glia acts via neuronal receptors to activate intracellular stress signals, causing downstream activation of stress responses in the neuronal nucleus.. We used in vivo, in vitro, and live-cell imaging assays to fully characterize the axonal transport defects in the SOD1G93A model of familial ALS. We also found that mouse models with impaired dynein function, Loa and Tgdynamitin, show similarly decreased efficiencies of retrograde transport but, unlike the mSOD1 model, develop only mild neurodegeneration. Therefore, the slowing of neurotrophic factor signaling is not sufficient to induce pronounced neuronal loss. Instead, in the mSOD1 model in the early ...

This year marks a turning point in cancer, as long-sought efforts to unleash the immune system against tumors are paying off-even if the future remains a question mark.. Historys path is unchartable when its not yet past but present, when we are still standing in the middle of it. Thats what made Sciences selection of this years Breakthrough of the Year such a topic of internal debate, even anxiety. In celebrating cancer immunotherapy-harnessing the immune system to battle tumors-did we risk hyping an approach whose ultimate impact remains unknown? Were we irresponsible to label as a breakthrough a strategy that has touched a tiny fraction of cancer patients and helped only some of them? What do we mean when we call something a breakthrough, anyway?. Ultimately, we concluded, cancer immunotherapy passes the test. It does so because this year, clinical trials have cemented its potential in patients and swayed even the skeptics. The field hums with stories of ...

The first FDA-designated breakthrough therapy has been approved by US regulators, it was announced last week. Roches Gazyva (obinutuzumab) coupled with chlorambucil was given the green light for the treatment of blood cancer chronic lymphocytic leukaemia, and industry commentators expect the orphan drug to be a worthy successor to blockbuster drug Rituxan.. With Rituxans patent expiry looming, it had been important for Roche to score a new potential blockbuster to take over the reigns. With Gazyva, Roche may well have one on their hands, as analysts have predicted peak sales between $1.5bn and $2.5bn.. Since Gazyva is the first drug with breakthrough therapy designation to receive FDA approval, there has been much interest around the impact that the BTD had on accelerating the drugs approval. "This approval reflects the promise of the Breakthrough Therapy Designation program, allowing us to work collaboratively with companies to expedite the development, ...
Novartis drug Promacta has won another breakthrough status from the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), setting up the Swiss pharma firm for a promising start to 2018.. The news comes hot on the heels of FDA breakthrough status for the companys breast cancer drug Kisqali.. For rare blood disorder drug Promacta (eltrombopag), the status was awarded for its use in combination with standard immunosuppressive therapy for the treatment of patients with severe aplastic anaemia (SAA) as a first-line therapy.. Samit Hirawat, head of Novartis oncology global drug development, said: "Promacta is a promising medicine that, if approved for first-line use in SAA, may redefine the standard of care for patients with this rare and serious bone marrow condition.. "We will continue to work closely with the FDA to make Promacta available to patients with SAA who are new to treatment as soon as possible.". Known as Revolade in most countries outside the US, Promacta gained its ...

My dad told me this story. When he was a kid, the family moved to a new house. After living there about three months, he distinctly remembers that one night they heard a loud bang, and the next morning, he and his siblings found a bullet hole in the mailbox. It was a great mystery for all the children as they wondered why a random person would shoot at their mailbox. The mystery went unsolved. More than 40 years later, my grandfather developed rapid-onset dementia and had to be put in aged care. As my dad and my uncle went through his paperwork and belongings, trying to sort everything out, they came across several old documents which shed light on some interesting events that occurred at the time of his familys move. My grandfather, despite being a Catholic and never missing a Sunday mass, was not a very nice man. When my grandfather sold the previous property, a farmhouse, before moving to the new one, he deliberately neglected to tell the new owner of the farmhouse that the small piece of ...

Understanding the causes of breakthrough in filtration is essential worldwide. Breakthrough links many factors, such as filtration flow rate and flow rate changes, temperature, chemical dosing, raw water quality, etc. These factors can affect floc strength, which has been recognized as one of the most important factors in filter efficiency and particle breakthrough, related to Cryptosporidium outbreaks. This research aims to investigate particle breakthrough related to temperature and chemical dosing. Experiments were conducted to establish the relationship between temperature and chemical dosing changes to floc strength and particle breakthrough. The temperature was set at a series range as 5 °C, 15 °C and 25 °C. Each was combined with a series of Al dose changes. A laser particle counter was installed to assess the particle breakthrough online. ζ potential and turbidity were measured before (after ...
Peter, Sandy and Frank - as well as their partners Annie, Dermot and Hayley - have always promised their children they will not need to worry about Huntingtons as there will be a treatment in time for them. Peter told the BBC: "Im the luckiest person in the world to be sitting here on the verge of having that.. "Hopefully that will be made available to everybody, to my brothers and sisters and fundamentally my children.". He, along with the other trial participants, can continue taking the drug as part of the next wave of trials. They will set out to show whether the disease can be slowed, and ultimately prevented, by treating Huntingtons disease carriers before they develop any symptoms.. Prof John Hardy, who was awarded the Breakthrough Prize for his work on Alzheimers, told the BBC: "I really think this is, potentially, the biggest breakthrough in neurodegenerative disease in the past 50 years.. "That sounds like hyperbole - in a year I might be embarrassed by saying that ...

While this progress is great, one has to ask: What are the implications of the immense popularity of the new Breakthrough Therapy designation? Can the FDA provide the needed resources to keep up this pace? And, importantly, will the Breakthrough Therapy designation soon become the norm in drug development? If so, will its value eventually be diminished in the eyes of the media and patients?. Almost exactly 30 years ago, Congress approved the Orphan Drug Act (ODA) to encourage the development of treatments for the millions of Americans with rare diseases. At that time, it was one of the hottest trends in the drug development market and the ODA clearly drove innovation in orphan and rare diseases, where there was little action and incentive before. In the decade before the law was passed, only 10 new drugs were developed by the industry for people with rare diseases. Since 1983, more than 2,700 potential treatments have entered the development process as "orphan products" and ...

Administration of drugs directly into the respiratory tree first was proposed a long time ago. Surfactant is the paradigmatic example of such therapies. Many other drugs have been used in the same way and further compounds are under investigation for this aim. In the last two decades, despite the wide number of drugs available for direct lung administration in critical care patients, few controlled data exist regarding their use in neonates and infants. This review will focus on drugs clinically available in a critical care setting for neonates and infants, including bronchodilators, pulmonary vasodilators, anti-inflammatory agents, mucolytics, resuscitative anti-infective agents, surfactants and other drugs. We provide an evidence-based comprehensive review of drugs available for intratracheal administration in paediatric and neonatal critical care and we examine possible advantages and risks for each proposed indication.. ...

Researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) have developed battery cells capable of charging in under a minute, an astonishing 100 times faster than a regular rechargable battery.. The breakthrough could revolutionize electric car battery technology and pave the way for ultra-fast charging electric vehicles in as little as two years.. The discovery came when MIT researchers Byoungwoo Kang and Gerbrand Ceder found out how to get a common lithium compound to release and take up lithium ions in a matter of seconds. According to Ceder, the compound, known as lithium iron phosphate (LiFePO4), has a crystal structure that creates "perfectly sized tunnels for lithium to move through," allowing the team to reach "ridiculously fast charging rates.". ...
