Meet Pharma’s Biggest Innovators

With projects submitted from Scotland to Togo, the 2016 eyeforpharma Barcelona Awards were truly a global occasion. Although we had wide participation from pharma’s top 20 (18 out of 20 to be exact, we’ll get the full set in 2017), UCB once again stood out from the pack. 2016 marked the second consecutive year in which they have taken home two awards; this time in the ‘Most Valuable Pharma Collaboration’ and ‘Customer Innovator’ categories. Many entrants had a strong technology component, with patient support and HCP education apps, tech-inspired hackathons, and the first social network for physicians. We also saw a huge increase in collaborations across industry and sectors. Projects embraced the wisdom of the crowd, with contributions from HCPs, nurses, advocacy groups, ministers, payers, other pharma, government, and even philosophers. But without further ado… the winners!

CONCLUSIONS: A large proportion of caregivers preferred pellets to other formulations of LPV/r and reported a good response to pellets; however, they also reported challenges with administration. Counselling should focus on ensuring that caregivers can confidently administer pellets and are able to instruct others, to ensure high uptake and good adherence to treatment. LPV/r pellets may be an acceptable substitute for other available forms of LPV/r for eligible children under three years if they are currently on or in need of LPV/r-containing regimens; however, challenges with administration still highlight the need for im...

CONCLUSIONS: These observations suggest that BDNF Val66met-SNP has no detectable effect on the peripheral neuropathy that is induced by paclitaxel. The significance of BDNF Val66Met-SNP in pre-existing peripheral neuropathy-related conditions, such as diabetes, should be further investigated. PMID: 30550003 [PubMed - in process]
