Clinical trials system is ‘ broken ’ , FDA ’ s Woodcock says
The clinical trials system is “broken,” according to the director of the FDA’s Center for Drug Evaluation and Research, Janet Woodcock. The system needs new clinical trial networks and the adoption of mater protocols – protocols for trials that focus on multiple therapies for a single disease or a single treatment that could apply to multiple diseases, Woodcock said, according to RAPS.

Researchers describe mechanism that underlies age-associated bone loss
(University of Alabama at Birmingham) A major health problem in older people is age-associated osteoporosis -- the thinning of bone and the loss of bone density that increases the risk of fractures. Researchers have now detailed an underlying mechanism leading to that osteoporosis. When this mechanism malfunctions, progenitor cells stop creating bone-producing cells, and instead create fat cells. Knowledge of this mechanism can provide targets in the search for novel bone-loss.

Lightning Process 'could help children with chronic fatigue syndrome', study claims
Conclusion The results from this very small randomised controlled trial showed that people having LP therapy in addition to usual CFS/ME care had improved physical function, fatigue and anxiety symptoms at six months, and improved school attendance and depressive symptoms at 12 months. However, there are a number of limitations to this research that need to be considered: Participants in both groups improved, so both treatments were effective to some extent. This was a very small trial, and the results analysis involved fewer than the 100 people recruited. It would need to be repeated in a much larger group to demonstr...

Now, a report from short-seller GlassHouse Research suggests there is more to the turnover than meets the eye. GlassHouse said the abrupt departure of former Chief Operating Officer Jason Hannon and Chief Financial Officer Quentin Blackford indicates that the clock may be running out for NuVasive, and that the company has been fooling investors with accounting tricks. ...
