Out of the Shadows: Mental Health in Asia Pacific
Mental health has been a peripheral issue in emerging markets for a long time, despite the severe impact not only on those directly affected but also on families and carers, as well as on social cohesion and economic development.Fortunately, mental health is starting to get more attention but there is still a widespread tendency to stigmatize and discriminate against people suffering with a mental illness. They are often considered as dangerous and aggressive which in turn increases the social distance.Is there an opportunity for pharma to do more? In the first of a series of articles exploring mental health in emerging ma...

Recreating liver tumors as organoids for faster, more accurate drug screening
(National University of Singapore, Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine) A major challenge in developing liver cancer drugs is that preclinical testing occurs in tumor models that do not accurately reflect human tumor features, causing drug candidates to later fail in clinical testing. Now, Singaporean researchers have grown organoids from liver tumors on specially engineered 3-D scaffolds. These organoids replicate important features of the original tumor, including genetic changes and intra-tumor heterogeneity, and could serve as tumor avatars for high-throughput drug screening.

Substances used in household goods affect the immune system of a coastal mussel
(Society of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry) In a study published in Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry, researchers from National University of Singapore have determined how perfluoalkyl substances (PFAS) affect the immune system of green mussels. Mussels, and other invertebrates, play an essential role in their ecosystem, and the ocean is the final sink for many pollutants like PFAS, so it is important to monitor regions that may have higher environmental concentrations due to unregulated discharges of these substances.

Toxic Black-Market Cigarettes Fuel Mesothelioma Concerns
The Australian government’s plan to see around 300,000 people quit smoking by 2020 has backfired. A tobacco tax hike of a 12.5 percent over a four-year span has driven the price of cigarettes to $40 a pack and rising. As a result, avid smokers are turning to illegally imported cigarettes to fuel their habit. The trend has resulted in the emergence of a flourishing black-market industry linked to organized crime. Up to 14.3 percent of tobacco consumed in Australia comes through the black market, with a wide range of brands and counterfeit imitations sold “under the counter” by shop owners and other individ...
