Celebrating 10 years of success for Infusion

As the business took off, more space was needed, and the company moved in 2009 to “real” office space just up the road in Haddam, CT, across the street from the Connecticut River, eventually employing a staff of 10 that year. A year later, in 2010, Infusion had doubled in size and became part of the UDG/Ashfield family. Infusion continued to grow at a steady pace into new therapeutic areas with more clients and employees, and in October 2016, Infusion left its country setting and moved into larger corporate offices in downtown Middletown, CT. Our staff now comprises 45 people and includes account executives, medical writers, scientific directors, medical editors, and graphic designers. Three of the four original employees still work at Infusion (Matt, Angela, and Rick Kemmerer), and many of us have been here 5+ years. It’s the challenge of the work and the quality of the people we work with that gets us into the office every day and keeps us here long-term. Some 90% of our scientific staff have advanced degrees, and our management team has 18+ years of experience in healthcare communication; our scientific team 10+ years; our core delivery team 10+ years; and client services 8+ years. Heather Sylvestro, our Director of Graphics and Production, is an award-winning designer, having been recognised several times by professional advertising/graphics industry groups for her designs and having had her design chosen as the artwork for the 2014 annual meeting of th...

This case report illustrates a successful treatment of a 60-year-old woman with vulvo-vaginal localization of hidradenocarcinoma treated with external beam radiotherapy delivered by helical tomotherapy with a simultaneous integrated boost (SIB), followed by brachytherapy. External beam radiotherapy dose prescription was 50.4 Gy in 28 fractions, five fractions per week to whole pelvis (planning target volume...

Conclusion: Sequential trial designs have not been frequently used in Neonatology. They might potentially be able to reduce the number of patients in drug trials, although this is not always the case.What is known:•In evaluating rare diseases in fragile populations, traditional designs come at their limits. About 20% of pediatric trials are discontinued, mainly because of recruitment problems.What is new:• Sequential trials involving newborns were infrequently used and only a few (n = 21) are available for analysis.• The sequential design allowed to non-significantly reduce the number of enroll...

Background and purposeMultiple sclerosis (MS) is most frequent in Caucasian populations. However, studies of MS in other ethnic groups may offer unique insights into genetic and environmental influences on the disease, and data on long‐term outcomes in these patients is limited. In this work clinical features and time to disability milestones were investigated in ethnic minority (EM) patients with MS in a UK population and comparisons were made to a Caucasian cohort from the same region. MethodsIn all, 1949 MS patients (1866 Caucasian, 83 EM) were identified from a regional disease registry. Cox proportional hazards regr...

Conclusions These are the first data to demonstrate mechanistic relationships between subclinical hemolysis and a procoagulant state during continuous-flow LVAD support. Patients with high pfHgb and LDH were more likely to develop LVAD thrombosis. In vitro experiments demonstrated that free hemoglobin inhibited ADAMTS-13, protected vWF from degradation, increased vWF clotting function, and created a procoagulant state. As such, pfHgb may be a clinical target to prevent LVAD thrombosis. Graphical abstract

Abstract Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a chronic, progressive disorder of the central nervous system (CNS) that affects more than two million people worldwide. Several animal models resemble MS pathology; the most employed are experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (EAE) and toxin‐ and/or virus‐induced demyelination. In this review we will summarize our knowledge on the utility of different animal models in MS research. Although animal models cannot replicate the complexity and heterogeneity of the MS pathology, they have proved to be useful for the development of several drugs approved for treatment of MS patients. Th...

Authors: Haase R, Wunderlich M, Dillenseger A, Kern R, Akgün K, Ziemssen T Abstract INTRODUCTION: For safety evaluation, randomized controlled trials (RCTs) are not fully able to identify rare adverse events. The richest source of safety data lies in the post-marketing phase. Real-world evidence (RWE) and observational studies are becoming increasingly popular because they reflect usefulness of drugs in real life and have the ability to discover uncommon or rare adverse drug reactions. Areas covered: Adding the documentation of psychological symptoms and other medical disciplines, the necessity for a complex d...
