Promising Class of New Cancer Drugs Cause Memory Loss in Mice
New findings from The Rockefeller University suggest that the original version of BET inhibitors causes molecular changes in mouse neurons, and can lead to memory loss in mice that receive it.
Electrical Control of Cancer Cells
Research led by scientists at The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston (UTHealth) has revealed a new electrical mechanism that can control these switches.
Signature of Microbiomes Linked to Schizophrenia
Studying microbiomes in throat may help identify causes and treatments of brain disorder.
Inflammation Linked to Colon Cancer Metastasis
A new Arizona State University research study led by Biodesign Institute executive director Raymond DuBois has identified for the first time the details of how inflammation triggers colon cancer cells to spread to other organs, or metastasize.
Structural Discoveries Could Aid in Better Drug Design
Scientists have uncovered the structural details of how some proteins interact to turn two different signals into a single integrated output.
Determining the Age of Fingerprints
Watch the imprint of a tire track in soft mud, and it will slowly blur, the ridges of the pattern gradually flowing into the valleys. Researchers have tested the theory that a similar effect could be used to give forensic scientists a way to date fingerprints.
Genetic Overlapping in Multiple Autoimmune Diseases May Suggest Common Therapies
CHOP genomics expert leads analysis of genetic architecture, with eye on repurposing existing drugs.
Surprising Mechanism Behind Antibiotic-Resistant Bacteria Uncovered
Now, scientists at TSRI have discovered that the important human pathogen Staphylococcus aureus, develops resistance to this drug by “switching on” a previously uncharacterized set of genes.
Tissue Bank Pays Dividends for Brain Cancer Research
Checking what’s in the bank – the Brisbane Breast Bank, that is – has paid dividends for UQ cancer researchers.
Researchers Publish Landmark “Basket Study”
Researchers from Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSK) have announced results from the first published basket study, a new form of clinical trial design that explores responses to drugs based on the specific mutations in patients’ tumors rather than where their cancer originated.

Social Media in the Pharmaceutical Industry

Astra Zeneca

Two primary themes are captured in the paper:

1. Social media is a fundamental part of advancing public health.

2. Pharmaceutical companies have a responsibility to engage more fully in social media.

The paper includes the thoughts of patients, health advocates, former government officials, bloggers and others who participated in a roundtable discussion that AstraZeneca convened late last year. The discussion, which was facilitated by members of Google’s Health Industry Team, sought specific feedback on AstraZeneca’s social media principles – and included considerable discussion on the social media guidelines expected to be released by the FDA later this year.

It summarises and addresses key discussion points that arose from both the Social Media Roundtable and DPE, as well as several considerations for the FDA in its development of social media guidance.

In the paper, Astrazeneca put forth five principles required for appropriate pharmaceutical manufacturer engagement in social media.

The white paper says the FDA should engage with the pharmaceutical industry to help them research and resolve issues raised by social media.
