August 2019

In the next issue of Pharma Technology Focus, we examine how the industry is responding to the growing threat of drug resistant tuberculosis, look back at key milestones in the decades long fight to prevent and treat HIV, and, after allegations that Teva orchestrated a sweeping scheme to inflate prices, we investigate what is going on with the company.

Also, we find out more about the dangers of unlicensed stem cell clinics, speak to the team behind research into the way that cancer cells communicate, and profile Verona’s ensifentrine to understand its potential as a life-changing solution for COPD patients.

Plus, we talk with Hedley Rees, author of the new book Taming the Big Pharma Monster about his experience in the UK pharma sector and how the industry could be modernised, and examine a UK initiative to create a ‘pay as you go’ database of AI programs for drug discovery firms.
