Five Reasons Why Clinical Trials Fail And What Pharma is Doing To Fix It
If echo chambers, polarizing politics and solipsism sums up the world in 2018, the art of listening has become gold dust.The pharma industry appears to be bucking the trend however. When it comes to the patient voice, companies are becoming all ears, with patient insights driving internal decisions across the board.We decided to put this proposition to the test.One of pharma ’s perennial thorns is clinical trial recruitment. 86% of clinical trials do not reach recruitment targets within their specified time periods. Patients clearly have their grievances but are pharma companies truly listening? More importantly, are...

For mesothelioma patients, immunotherapy is mostly available through clinical trials at this time. Immunotherapy is a relatively new way to treat cancer, and doctors still are learning who will respond best to these novel therapies. Newly released medical research has found men seem to respond better to immunotherapy than women. But this doesn’t mean immunotherapy is off the table for women with mesothelioma. You should learn all you can about how immunotherapy works, why it may or may not be right for you and how you can best prepare yourself if you decide an immunotherapy clinical trial is right for you.

Pulmonx wins FDA approval for Zephyr endobronchial valve
The FDA today granted pre-market approval under its breakthrough devices designation to the Zephyr endobronchial valve made by Pulmonx for treating severe emphysema. Emphysema, a chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, causes irreversible damage to the lung’s alveoli, trapping air during exhalation that in turn can cause the diseased tissue to grow larger and pressure healthy lung tissue. The Zephyr device is designed to decrease the volume of the chest to improve function in the heart, respiratory muscles and healthy lung tissue. Inserted via bronchoscopy, the pencil-eraser-sized valves prevent air from ent...

Doctors Think a Woman ’s Tattoo May Have Been Causing Her Severe Leg Pain
Doctors in Scotland believe a woman’s large tattoo on her leg may have been the cause of her unexplained inflammation and severe leg pain. The authors of a report on the woman’s case, published in BMJ Case Reports, say it is a reminder to physicians that they should be mindful of their patients’ tattoos if they encounter unusual and unexplained symptoms. The 31-year-old woman was suffering a condition called inflammatory myopathy, which affected her left leg and caused pain severe enough to disrupt her sleep. The woman had a double lung transplant in 2009, and was taking drugs to suppress her immune syst...
