News Nov 03, 2009
SAS has announced that Dainippon Sumitomo Pharma America, Inc. (DSPA), a U.S. pharmaceutical company, has selected SAS Solutions OnDemand: Drug Development as a technology platform for clinical development. With SAS OnDemand, DSPA will have a globally accessible, fully regulatory compliant repository for all of its clinical data.
The SAS OnDemand service has allowed DSPA to move with limited internal resources, in creating its centralized SAS development environment. By letting SAS handle all system provisioning and deployment activities, DSPA resources are free to focus on other mission critical business activities.
SAS Solutions OnDemand: Drug Development is a cost-effective alternative to an enterprise SAS Drug Development implementation, with all embedded enterprise-level content management and analytical capabilities. SAS, through its OnDemand solution, directly supports all hardware and software installation, system administration, validation and maintenance, freeing DSPA from these burdensome responsibilities.
MIT researchers have developed a cryptographic system that could help neural networks identify promising drug candidates in massive pharmacological datasets, while keeping the data private. Secure computation done at such a massive scale could enable broad pooling of sensitive pharmacological data for predictive drug discovery.
Biochemists, microbiologists, drug discovery experts and infectious disease doctors have teamed up in a new study that shows antibiotics are not always necessary to cure sepsis in mice. Instead of killing causative bacteria with antibiotics, researchers treated infected mice with molecules that block toxin formation in bacteria.READ MORE
