The Future of Pharmaceuticals

The inter linking of medicine and technology is paving way for newer opportunities in pharmaceutical medication, surgery, and health monitoring. Medicine is increasingly being interspersed with fields such as computer science, nanotechnology and biotechnology to give hybrid fields that are slowly taking over traditional pharmaceuticals. Some of these fields are set to redefine the future

Gene Therapy For Disease-Free Society

As per several genome research organizations, a sizeable percentage of diseases acquired by newborns are genetic, which means the diseases were acquired through hereditary or mutations. In simpler terms, when the egg and the sperm (genetic material) fuse, the embryo formed will acquire some hereditary traits that may carry diseases. A random mutation, although rare,

Biomedical Intervention for Autism

The use of biomedical therapies for people with any autism-spectrum condition is a process that involves patience as well as investigation. The patience aspect is very critical because different types of therapies work at different rates, while the investigation part of the equation is finding out which therapy is more effective than an alternate one.

Personalised Cell Therapy

Personalised treatment Personalised medical treatment has matured to integrate into biopharmaceutical drug development pathways. This type of treatment targets patient/s with a specific drug that matches the specific disease physiopathology and/or patient characteristics e.g. genomic profile, and disease prevalence/severity. Personalised medicine has been generally developed in niche indications or conditions with high unmet need. Cell

Clinical Trials on tissues of human heart now possible in UK

A UK based new start-up is developing a unique method for testing out the impact of drugs on the cardio-vascular system without resorting to animal testing or through clinical trials of an early-stage human. The company we are talking about is Inocardia, a spin-out from the University of Coventry. Having attracted sufficient funding from the

Low-Cost Genome Sequencing

In Silicon Valley, Moore’s law appears to remained on equivalent balance with the regular laws classified by Isaac Newton. Intel prime supporter Gordon Moore’s notorious perception that registering power has a tendency to twofold — and that its value hence parts — like clockwork has held valid for about 50 years with just minor update.

Future of Pharma Industry – Biotechnology

Biotechnology can be defined as the use of living systems and organisms to develop or make useful products, or “any technological application that uses biological systems, living organisms or derivatives in order to make or modify products or processes for specific use.  However, contrary to its name biotechnology is not a single technology. Rather it
