Mundipharma launches Remsima®, a new-generation value-based monoclonal antibody
• The European Medicines Agency has determined that Remsima, a biosimilar, is comparable to the reference product Remicade® in terms of safety, efficacy and quality across all approved indications • Remsima is expected to cost less than the reference product; these savings could allow more patients with inflammatory autoimmune diseases to access monoclonal antibody therapy • Biosimilar monoclonal antibodies are expected to save European healthcare systems between €1.8 and €20.4 billion between 2007 and 2020 (1) (Source: Pharmacy Europe)

How Growth Screenings Could Help Detect Celiac Disease In Kids
By: Laura Geggel Published: 03/02/2015 03:15 PM EST on LiveScience Measuring children's height and weight as they grow can be a powerful indicator of whether they have the digestive condition called celiac disease, and may help doctors diagnose children with the disorder earlier, a new study finds. When used together, five calculations that are done based a child's height and weight — such as how much a child's height varies from the average for age and gender, and how this measure changes over time — were able to detect celiac disease in 84 percent of boys and 88 percent of girls with the disorder, according to the...

Your Upset Tummy Could Be Early Signs Of Parkinson’s
You’ve probably had a gut feeling once or twice in your life. That’s because your gut and your brain have a special connection. And that’s why the first sign of many brain disorders could be an upset stomach. I often explain to patients at my wellness clinic that nerve and biochemical pathways run between your gut and brain. And these might be linked to a number of degenerative illnesses, such as Parkinson’s disease and multiple sclerosis, as well as mental health problems. In fact, the gut and brain share the same nerve chemistry and, with the help of microbes in your digestive tract, these two reg...

MS stem cell treatment only a 'miracle' for some
Conclusion This case-series showed that a new stem cell treatment reduced the disability in people with relapsing remitting MS up to four years after treatment. It worked in more than half of those given treatment. The authors claim that this was the first time this had been achieved, and is important because there is currently no cure for MS. Given the relative lack of alternative treatments for MS, these results are encouraging. However, there are issues to bear in mind. The average EDSS score before treatment in the group was 4.0. The scale goes from 10 (death due to MS), to 1.0 (no disability). Ratings above 5.0 invo...

How Personality Affects Gene Expression And Immune System Function
Health depends on a number of factors -- genetics, environment, lifestyle factors, and according to new research, personality might also play a large role in determining health outcomes. Some research has suggested that personality can play a role in the risk of developing certain physical health problems. Now, a new study has found that personality traits may also be a factor in how well the body fights disease. Personality traits including extroversion, neuroticism and conscientiousness -- all of which are considered to be part of the "big five" personality traits -- play an important role in immune system function, ...

7 Things You Should Know About Autoimmune Diseases
As if living with chronic illness wasn't challenging enough, living with an autoimmune disease can be even more difficult.

What is the Remission Rate for Antithyroid Drug Treatment for Hyperthyroidism in Children?
Discussion The thyroid gland secrets two hormones – T4 which is a prohormone and T3 which is the biologically active hormone. Receptors for T3 are found in nearly all body tissues. T3 regulates metabolism and energy production. Organs most affected are the heart, liver and central nervous system as well as growth of the fetus and child. Hyperthyroidism is common with a prevalence rate of about 1-2% for women and 0.2% for men. The most common cause of thyrotoxicosis is Grave’s disease where autoantibodies to thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) exist. These autoantibodies attach to thyroid tissue TSH receptors and...
