Allergan talks taxes and competition in 2018 outlook
Allergan (NYSE:AGN) had a busy, and occasionally fraught, 2017. After the company inked a controversial deal with a Native American tribe to shield its Restasis patents from review, a federal judge in Texas invalidated the IP, helping to clear the way for generics.

ConclusionIn most cases, the ICP sensor provides reliable measurements beyond the approved implantation time of 90 days. Thus, the sensor should not be routinely removed after this period, if ICP monitoring is still indicated. However, some sensors showed technical malfunction prior to the CE-approval, underlining that caution should always be taken when analyzing telemetric ICP curves.

TM had both N-glycan and O-glycan. After deglycosylation and glycation, the α-helix of TM reduced, while other secondary structures promoted. Deglycosylation enhanced TM allergenicity and digestibility, contributed to digests with lower allergenicity, glucose...

RAG2 and a 19-kDa globulin were localized in polished rice, while a 52-kDa globulin was localized in rice bran. The 52-kDa globulin was also identified as the most likely causative allergen of rice bran allergy. Several products containing intact rice bran were found to contain the 52-kD...

ConclusionMore than just the seasonal pollen index has to be considered when the SLI of a selected pollen season has to be explained. Cross-reactivity to other pollen types, allergen content and air pollution could play a considerable role. The similar behavior of the SLI in Vienna and a whole region indicate the feasibility of a possible symptom forecast in future and justifies the use of a single pollen monitoring station within a city of the size of Vienna.
Apollo Food International Inc. of Long Island City, NY, is recalling its 2.469 ounce packages of “Mini Roll” food treats because they may contain undeclared eggs. Consumers who are allergic to eggs may run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reactions if they consume this product.
FINDINGSInfants born to HIV-positive mothers had high rates of congenital cytomegalovirus, or CMV. Infants who also were infected before birth by the virus that causes AIDS were especially prone to CMV infection.The researchers found that 23 percent of the infants who became infected with HIV during the mother ’s pregnancy also were infected with CMV; 18 percent who were infected with HIV either during pregnancy or birth acquired congenital CMV; and 4.9 percent who were exposed to HIV but remained uninfected with that virus also acquired congenital CMV.Overall, HIV-infected infants were four times as likely to have a...
