July 2019

In the next issue of Pharma Technology Focus, we take a look at the arguments for and against a national drug company in the UK after it was suggested that only a state-run drug company could be trusted to deliver timely results in the fight against superbugs, and dive into a potential treasure trove for drug manufacturers as we examine the rich bacteria source found in underwater forests.

Also, we take a look at the race to get the first nonalcoholic steatohepatitis drug approved for market as industry heavyweights such as Gilead Sciences, Pfizer and Novartis vie to take the lead and explore the therapeutic benefits, risks and market potential of Brexanolone, the world’s first treatment indicated for post-partum depression.

Plus, we find out about Innoplexus AG, an AI company in Frankfurt, which claims to be able to predict trial failures using an algorithm to analyse pharma companies’ drug pipelines, and examine the potential of discovery proteomics, a new innovation in clinical trials being introduced by Swiss pharma giant Roche and proteomics specialist Biognosys.
