Parents told to use pram covers to protect babies from air pollution
Conclusion This study aimed to investigate the pollution that babies and young children are exposed to, whether in the pram or carried by adults, on different school drop-off and pick-up walking routes. It generally found that the concentrations of fine particulates (PMC and PNC) were higher during morning hours, particularly around traffic intersections and bus stops. Experimental studies like this one are useful for testing hypotheses but there are a few points worth noting: The study assessed a single town. They would need to compare their findings with many more assessments on different routes, and in different towns...

Boosting Medical ’s Role in Early Development
There is a consensus within the industry that Medical Affairs (MA) has an opportunity to redefine its role but there are still questions to be answered about the structure and shape of the new optimized MA department.

Investigational vaccine protects cattle from respiratory syncytial virus
(NIH/National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases) A novel vaccine developed by scientists at the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, protected cattle from respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) infection, according to research published online in npj Vaccines on March 8. The version of RSV that naturally infects cattle is closely related to human RSV, so the results suggest that a similar human RSV vaccine construct may provide protection in humans, according to the study authors.

Citric acid has the potential to produce respiratory sensitisers in e-cigarette vapor
(R&D at British American Tobacco) The use of citric acid in e-liquids needs to be investigated to further understand its potential to form potentially harmful anhydrides in the vapour. Citric acid occurs naturally in the body, is 'generally recognized as safe' in the USA, and is used in pharmaceutical inhalation products. However, thermal degradation of citric acid can occur at the operating temperatures of some vaping devices. Starting at around 175-203 ° C, citric acid can degrade to form citraconic anhydride and its isomer itaconic anhydride. (Source: EurekAlert! - Medicine and Health)

Tennessee Bird Flu Shares Name, Not Genetics, Of Feared China Strain
The strain of bird flu that infected a chicken farm in Tennessee in recent days shares the same name as a form of the virus that has killed humans in China, but is genetically distinct from it, U.S. authorities said on Tuesday. The U.S. Department of Agriculture identified the strain in Tennessee as H7N9, following a full genome sequencing of samples from the farm. It said all eight gene segments of the virus had North American wild bird lineage. On Sunday, the USDA confirmed the farm in Tennessee was infected with highly pathogenic bird flu, making it the first case in a commercial U.S. operation in more than a year. In C...

Demand for EpiPen alternatives jumps as states consider access legislation
Prescriptions for EpiPen alternatives such as Kaléo Inc.‘s Auvi-Q device have quadrupled since the beginning of this year, according to data from the Athenahealth Network. The demand for cheaper alternative devices is likely driven by revelations that Mylan (NSDQ:MYL) hiked the price of its EpiPen emergency allergy injector by 500% since it acquired the device in 2007. Generic options for the injector were sparse until Kaleo’s product was re-released in mid-February this year. Mylan launched a generic version of its own device in December last year at half the price of the original an...
