Customer centricity in a changed world
  Few or no reps on the road, patients confined en masse to their homes and a healthcare and economic emergency of which we can still only guess the scale and duration.    It is a situation that pharma ’s marketing folk never expected, never planned for and one which our panel discuss in depth on day one of eyeforpharma’s Philadelphia Virtual conference in the panel session on customer centricity. Marketing departments face a daunting challenge. More used to planning for slowly emerging trends, they are being forced by the pandemic situation to react in real time to increase their digital engagement capabilities,...

Neoliberal developmentalism, authoritarian populism, and extractivism in the countryside: the Soma mining disaster in Turkey - Adaman F, Arsel M, Akbulut B.
While state-society relations in Turkey have historically been top-down and coups d' état periodically interrupted democratic politics, the recent authoritarian turn under Erdoğan is remarkable. Two dynamics are especially salient. First, Erdoğan and his... (Source: SafetyLit)

The forebrain synaptic transcriptome is organized by clocks but its proteome is driven by sleep
Neurons have adapted mechanisms to traffic RNA and protein into distant dendritic and axonal arbors. Taking a biochemical approach, we reveal that forebrain synaptic transcript accumulation shows overwhelmingly daily rhythms, with two-thirds of synaptic transcripts showing time-of-day–dependent abundance independent of oscillations in the soma. These transcripts formed two sharp temporal and functional clusters, with transcripts preceding dawn related to metabolism and translation and those anticipating dusk related to synaptic transmission. Characterization of the synaptic proteome around the clock demonstrates the ...

Book Review: EMDR Therapy & Somatic Psychology
Many therapists and trainees will be familiar with the terms “somatic psychology” and “EMDR therapy,” and there have been many authors who have tried to write a book that encapsulates both of these topics succinctly, but in my opinion, none have succeeded in quite the same way as Arielle Schwartz and Barb Maiberger with their new book, EMDR Therapy and Somatic Psychology: Interventions to Enhance Embodiment in Trauma Treatment. EMDR Therapy and Somatic Psychology is a wonderful resource for both therapists-in-training and practicing therapists. The first part of the book is devoted to providing foundational knowled...

Researchers Are Working on a Surprising Way to Deliver Insulin Without an Injection: Swallowing the Needle
Needles aren’t popular. For people with type 1 diabetes (and some with type 2 diabetes) that can be a problem, since treatment requires regular injections with insulin. Now, researchers at MIT have come up with a novel way to one day eliminate the need for injections: with a tiny swallowable device that can automatically inject insulin directly into the stomach wall. In a report published in Science, Robert Langer and Giovanni Traverso describe what they call a self-orienting millimeter scale applicator, or SOMA, that they developed to make injecting drugs easier. So far, SOMA has only been tested in animals. Roughly...

An ingestible self-orienting system for oral delivery of macromolecules
Biomacromolecules have transformed our capacity to effectively treat diseases; however, their rapid degradation and poor absorption in the gastrointestinal (GI) tract generally limit their administration to parenteral routes. An oral biologic delivery system must aid in both localization and permeation to achieve systemic drug uptake. Inspired by the leopard tortoise’s ability to passively reorient, we developed an ingestible self-orienting millimeter-scale applicator (SOMA) that autonomously positions itself to engage with GI tissue. It then deploys milliposts fabricated from active pharmaceutical ingredients direct...
