February 2020

In the next issue of Pharma Technology Focus, we review the most successful projects to be funded by the EU’s Horizon 2020 scheme, dig through the fine print of the Lower Drug Costs Now Act to find out how the proposed legislation could impact the industry in the US, and talk the future of pharmacies and batch testing with Valisure.

Also, we explore the relationship between old age and drug development after the World Health Organization proposed classifying ageing as a condition, find out how ‘just-in-time’ medications that can be manufactured aboard space shuttles could help protect astronauts during deep space missions, and examine the comeback of Biogen’s Alzheimer’s treatment aducanumab.

Plus, we find out about Ehlers-Danlos syndromes and the treatments available to patients suffering with the condition, and take a look at pharma’s role in improving global access to medicines.
