February 2021

In the next issue of Pharma Technology Focus, we investigate the impact that Amazon Pharmacy’s entry into the online pharmacy space will have on the market, ask if honest brokers could help to bridge the divide between the pharma industry and communities of colour, and find out if the industry response to Covid-19 could provide pharma with a much-needed image makeover.

Plus, we speak to the UK Vaccines Manufacturing and Innovation Centre about the logistics of delivering Covid-19 vaccines to the UK population, examine a new initiative from the World Health Organization that aims to tackle drug resistance and revitalise the antibiotic pipeline, and profile the first weight loss drug to be recommended for use on the NHS in England in almost a decade.

Also, we take a look at a real-time genomic surveillance system for Covid-19 in the UK and explore the potential of ChariotMS, the first multiple sclerosis clinical trial to focus only on people who can’t walk.
