September 2019

In the next issue of Pharma Technology Focus, we explore the benefits of real world data, take a look at the life and achievements of renowned immunologist Dr. Teruko Ishizaka, and examine the rise of buyers clubs for cystic fibrosis patients seeking to bypass unsuccessful price negotiations in order to access treatments in the UK.

Also, we take a look at attitudes to pharmaceutical treatment for mental health conditions and explore the knock-on effects of overusing antibiotics in animals.

Plus, we find out how researchers are working to fill the vast gaps in knowledge that exist around the use of medication during pregnancy and breast feeding, speak to SIX head of securities and exchanges Thomas Zeeb to discuss the skills, regulations and protections that make Switzerland a good home for pharma firms, and investigate the cancer-killing power of halichondrin.
