Capitalismo e erosione dei sistemi democratici

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 15 agosto 2019

Abbiamo sempre pensato che non ci fosse conflittualità tra il capitalismo ed i sistemi democratici entro i quali esprimono il loro agire, ma non è così. E’ che il capitalismo come oggi lo viviamo tende sempre di più a mostrare il volto negazionista o per lo meno insofferenza sugli elementi costitutivi degli stati nazionali fondati su precise premesse sociali, culturali e giuridiche. Questa discrasia tende a rimettere in discussione gli stessi elementi costitutivi dello Stato a partire dal territorio, la sovranità popolare e l’ordinamento giuridico. Ciò significa che i confini tendono a diventare permeabili ai flussi migratori, monetari e alle forme culturali più superficiali come le mode e i consumi attraverso la comunicazione globale. A ben considerare non sarebbe un male se il fine fosse quello di un’equa ripartizione delle risorse, per una drastica riduzione dei conflitti e nel dare una certa omogeneità attraverso la comunicazione globale alle forme più superficiali di cultura e soprattutto alla cultura dei consumi. Ma così non è, purtroppo. In questa fattispecie il popolo perderebbe la sua identità culturale dando vita a fenomeni di massa che limitano il senso della continuità storica e della percezione del futuro. Si perderebbero le certezze del dettato costituzionale non più orientato da valori ma da interessi di parte. Resta da chiederci se mai è possibile una democrazia, come noi la conosciamo, senza Stato? Affidata agli interessi e alle fluttuazioni di poteri sociali non sottoposti a limiti e deprivate di valori? Sarebbe, senza dubbio, una svolta involutiva come sta già accadendo negli Stati Uniti, dove l’assistenza sanitaria è garantita solo ai possessori di un reddito. Diventerebbe una sudditanza delle culture nazionali e delle qualità condivise nella tradizione e nei costumi di un Popolo nella sua identità di Nazione. (Riccardo Alfonso)

La visione del potere

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 15 agosto 2019

Il titolo l’ho preso dall’omonimo libro di Gaetano Mosca e Guglielmo Ferrero. E’ stato un punto di partenza per una mia riflessione sull’evoluzione delle istituzioni democratiche che la letteratura sociologica del XX secolo ci ha dato testimonianza lasciandoci intravedere la possibilità di una sua realizzazione. E’ stato un sogno dei nostri padri e ora che figli siamo mi rendo conto che è stata e continua ad essere un’impresa molto ardua. Da cosa possa dipendere questa mancata trasformazione della democrazia è difficile a sapersi. Per Pareto là dove si mettono in moto forze centripete vi fanno da contraltare forze centrifughe e disgregatrici. Può bastarci questa spiegazione? Da parte mia no. Credo che dipenda dal cattivo uso che abbiamo fatto delle novazioni messe in campo. Penso ai processi che ci hanno portato al mondo globalizzato, al libero commercio e ad uno sviluppo economico non più concepibile in ambiti nazionali.
A questo riguardo i cultori della materia ci hanno spiegato che il problema sta negli stessi principi della democrazia “in quanto devono essere totalmente ripensati e ricostruiti venendo a mancare i due contraenti del patto di dominio: non essendoci un popolo “transnazionale” e una classe politica o una espressione di rappresentanza sostanziale ed effettiva di realtà sociali che vadano al di là del mondo degli interessi.” Cosa s’intende dire con ciò? Che è relativamente facile creare accordi e istituzioni concernenti gli interessi economici mentre è molto difficile renderli compatibili. E i conflitti in atto nell’Unione europea lo stanno a dimostrare, e non solo. Vedasi la guerra dei dazi tra Usa e Cina. Noi da una parte abbiamo puntato ad un allargamento dei mercati liberalizzando il transito delle merci e potenziato le concentrazioni industriali e finanziarie per diffondere su larga scala l’economicismo come principio ideologico dominante dall’altra non siamo stati capaci di superare i confini degli stati nazionali e delle singole culture.
Ma abbiamo fatto di peggio. Ci siamo serviti della Banca Mondiale, del Fondo Monetario Internazionale, del Wto per trasformali per ciò che non dovrebbero essere ovvero in organismi politici. (Riccardo Alfonso)

Beatrice conduce Dante in Paradiso, ossia verso la conquista della sua immortalità

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 15 agosto 2019

Qui si compie il destino di tutti gli esseri viventi, dal più piccolo al più grande, dal più saggio al più ignorante. Solo in questo modo possiamo giungere a un grado maggiormente elevato di consapevolezza e di compiutezza. Il genere umano, così procedendo, cammina, ma si può anche incedere senza procedere, si avanza, sotto certi aspetti, e si arretra sotto altri. La barbarie è una di tali cammini a ritroso.
L’uomo è condannato a un movimento continuo ma giunto al più alto livello la sua intenzione di volervi restare stabilmente lo spinge a compiere passi retrogradi. L’esempio dell’Eden in cui vissero Eva e Adamo lo sta dimostrando. Essi, per un eccesso di sicurezza, finirono con il perdere tutto, tranne l’amore.
E’ questo il filo d’Arianna, figlia del mitico re di Creta Minosse e di Pasifae che salva Teseo che si era avventurato nel labirinto per uccidere il Minotauro. E’ un filo d’amore. E’ quello che permette all’eroe di ritrovare la via del ritorno.
Sono storie simboliche, forse semplicemente spettacolari, ma tanto confacenti alla natura stessa dell’essere umano che si ritrova sempre con lo stesso ricorrente tema: quello del sentimento più puro che sprona all’azione, alla ricerca, alla bellezza e ci aiuta a capire la vita e ancor più la morte.
E’ tutto questo solo sentimento? Forse. Il sentimento, tuttavia, non inganna mai. Non coglie e non afferma che un rapporto, e questo non è un’apparenza ingannatrice. Esso non delude, per quanto primitivo può apparire.
E’ invincibile, universale e ci conduce sulle esistenze e le realtà e le annuncia con evidenza manifesta. Allora può servire di base a un giudizio assoluto e necessario. E’ la coscienza dell’esistente e delle esistenze.
L’attenzione che diamo a una cosa è sempre proporzionata all’interesse che essa c’ispira o alla forza di volontà che vi mettiamo. Quando questi due principi dell’attenzione si concentrano su un determinato oggetto, allora soltanto essa raggiunge il suo più alto grado di forza. In una passione, nulla ci sfugge di ciò che con essa ha rapporto, vicino o lontano che sia. I senza anima o gli uomini deboli di carattere, che, di fatto, non s’interessano di nulla, non sono suscettibili d’attenzione, o almeno di una valida attenzione. Per loro è necessario ritornare a vivere per assaporare ciò che hanno perso nelle vite precedenti. Sono i Teseo senza la loro Arianna. (Riccardo Alfonso)

The “Cardiovascular Drug Delivery – Technologies, Markets & Companies”

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 15 agosto 2019

The cardiovascular drug delivery markets are estimated for the years 2018 to 2028 on the basis of epidemiology and total markets for cardiovascular therapeutics.The estimates take into consideration the anticipated advances and availability of various technologies, particularly drug delivery devices in the future. Markets for drug-eluting stents are calculated separately. Role of drug delivery in developing cardiovascular markets is defined and unmet needs in cardiovascular drug delivery technologies are identified.
Drug delivery to the cardiovascular system is different from delivery to other systems because of the anatomy and physiology of the vascular system; it supplies blood and nutrients to all organs of the body. Drugs can be introduced into the vascular system for systemic effects or targeted to an organ via the regional blood supply. In addition to the usual formulations of drugs such as controlled release, devices are used as well. This report starts with an introduction to molecular cardiology and discusses its relationship to biotechnology and drug delivery systems.Drug delivery to the cardiovascular system is approached at three levels: (1) routes of drug delivery; (2) formulations; and finally (3) applications to various diseases. Formulations for drug delivery to the cardiovascular system range from controlled release preparations to delivery of proteins and peptides. Cell and gene therapies, including antisense and RNA interference, are described in full chapters as they are the most innovative methods of delivery of therapeutics. Various methods of improving systemic administration of drugs for cardiovascular disorders are described including use of nanotechnology.Cell-selective targeted drug delivery has emerged as one of the most significant areas of biomedical engineering research, to optimize the therapeutic efficacy of a drug by strictly localizing its pharmacological activity to a pathophysiologically relevant tissue system. These concepts have been applied to targeted drug delivery to the cardiovascular system. Devices for drug delivery to the cardiovascular system are also described.Role of drug delivery in various cardiovascular disorders such as myocardial ischemia, hypertension and hypercholesterolemia is discussed. Cardioprotection is also discussed. Some of the preparations and technologies are also applicable to peripheral arterial diseases. Controlled release systems are based on chronopharmacology, which deals with the effects of circadian biological rhythms on drug actions. A full chapter is devoted to drug-eluting stents as a treatment for restenosis following stenting of coronary arteries. Fifteen companies are involved in drug-eluting stents.Selected 82 companies that either develop technologies for drug delivery to the cardiovascular system or products using these technologies are profiled and 80 collaborations between companies are tabulated. The bibliography includes 200 selected references from recent literature on this topic. The report is supplemented with 31 tables and 9 figures.

Global Central Nervous System Diseases Drug Delivery Research Report 2019

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 15 agosto 2019

The “Drug Delivery in Central Nervous System Diseases – Technologies, Markets & Companies” report from Jain PharmaBiotech has been added to Research AndMarkets. com’s offering. The delivery of drugs to central nervous system (CNS) is a challenge in the treatment of neurological disorders. Drugs may be administered directly into the CNS or administered systematically (e.g., by intravenous injection) for targeted action in the CNS. The major challenge to CNS drug delivery is the blood-brain barrier (BBB), which limits the access of drugs to the brain substance.Advances in understanding of the cell biology of the BBB have opened new avenues and possibilities for improved drug delivery to the CNS. Several carrier or transport systems, enzymes, and receptors that control the penetration of molecules have been identified in the BBB endothelium. Receptor-mediated transcytosis can transport peptides and proteins across the BBB. Methods are available to assess the BBB permeability of drugs at the discovery stage to avoid development of drugs that fail to reach their target site of action in the CNS.Various strategies that have been used for manipulating the blood-brain barrier for drug delivery to the brain include osmotic and chemical opening of the blood-brain barrier as well as the use of transport/carrier systems. Other strategies for drug delivery to the brain involve bypassing the BBB. Various pharmacological agents have been used to open the BBB and direct invasive methods can introduce therapeutic agents into the brain substance.It is important to consider not only the net delivery of the agent to the CNS, but also the ability of the agent to access the relevant target site within the CNS. Various routes of administration as well as conjugations of drugs, e.g., with liposomes and nanoparticles, are considered. Some routes of direct administration to the brain are non-invasive such as transnasal route whereas others involve entry into the CNS by devices and needles such as in case of intrathecal and intracerebroventricular delivery.
Systemic therapy by oral and parenteral routes is considered along with sustained and controlled release to optimize the CNS action of drugs. Among the three main approaches to drug delivery to the CNS – systemic administration, injection into CSF pathways, and direct injection into the brain – the greatest developments is anticipated to occur in the area of targeted delivery by systemic administration.Many of the new developments in the treatment of neurological disorders will be biological therapies and these will require innovative methods for delivery. Cell, gene and antisense therapies are not only innovative treatments for CNS disorders but also involve sophisticated delivery methods. RNA interference (RNAi) as a form of antisense therapy is also described.The role of drug delivery is depicted in the background of various therapies for neurological diseases including drugs in development and the role of special delivery preparations. Pain is included as it is considered to be a neurological disorder. A special chapter is devoted to drug delivery for brain tumors. Cell and gene therapies will play an important role in the treatment of neurological disorders in the future.The method of delivery of a drug to the CNS has an impact on the drug’s commercial potential. The market for CNS drug delivery technologies is directly linked to the CNS drug market. Values are calculated for the total CNS market and the share of drug delivery technologies. Starting with the market values for the year 2017, projections are made to the years 2023 and 2028.The markets values are tabulated according to therapeutic areas, technologies and geographical areas. Unmet needs for further development in CNS drug delivery technologies are identified according to the important methods of delivery of therapeutic substances to the CNS. Finally suggestions are made for strategies to expand CNS delivery markets. Besides development of new products, these include application of innovative methods of delivery to older drugs to improve their action and extend their patent life.

Ancora Heart Enrolls First Patient in European Multi-Center Study

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 15 agosto 2019

Ancora Heart, Inc., a company developing a novel therapy to address heart failure, today announced the first patient was enrolled in the CorCinch EU study, a European multi-center clinical evaluation of the AccuCinch® Ventricular Repair System as a treatment for patients with reduced ejection fraction systolic heart failure (HFrEF).
The first patient was enrolled at Homolka Hospital in Prague, Czech Republic by Prof. Petr Neužil, M.D., CSc., FESC, head of the department of cardiology at Homolka Hospital and principal investigator of the study. The AccuCinch procedure was completed by co-investigator Vivek Reddy, M.D., director of cardiac arrhythmia services at The Mount Sinai Hospital in New York, along with Prof. Neužil.
This is the second recently initiated Ancora study evaluating the AccuCinch system focused specifically on heart failure and the enlarged left ventricle. The study will enroll up to 132 patients from heart centers across Europe.
The transcatheter AccuCinch therapy is designed to complement and enhance the existing care cardiologists provide to further manage symptoms and slow, or stop, the progression of heart failure. For some patients, AccuCinch may have the potential to reverse the enlargement of the left ventricle. For patients where heart failure has progressed beyond the ability for medications and pacemakers to manage symptoms, non-surgical percutaneous device therapy with AccuCinch may provide an effective treatment option. The AccuCinch system is designed to directly repair the left ventricle of the heart, thereby addressing the fundamental issue in the progression of systolic heart failure.

Curetis Retains H.C. Wainwright & Co. as Strategic Advisor

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 15 agosto 2019

Amsterdam, the Netherlands, and Holzgerlingen, Germany, a developer of next-level molecular diagnostic solutions, today announced that it has retained the U.S. based investment bank, H.C. Wainwright & Co., LLC, as strategic advisor in an effort to assess all available strategic and tactical options going forward to potentially secure appropriate funding and cash for continued operations for at least the next twelve months. Potential strategic options that may be explored or evaluated as part of H.C. Wainwright’s mandate may include, but are not limited to, equity funding, an acquisition, merger, business combination or other strategic transaction involving Curetis.There is no definitive timeline for completion of the assessment process and there can be no assurance that the assessment would actually result in Curetis pursuing any transaction at all or that a transaction, if it were pursued, could be completed successfully. Curetis does not intend to discuss or disclose further developments regarding the strategic assessment process unless and until its supervisory board and its management board have approved a specific course of action or otherwise determined that further disclosure is appropriate or required by applicable laws or regulations.As part of its ordinary course of business and regular investor relations efforts, the Company will be present at the 21st Annual H.C. Wainwright Global Life Sciences Conference to be held in New York, NY, USA, on September 8-10, 2019.In the context of the ongoing strategic assessment, the Company also announced that it will reschedule the publication of its 2019 First Half-Year Business and Financial Update and H1-2019 Earnings Call from its original financial calendar date on August 14, 2019 to September 18, 2019. This allows for an ongoing review of H1-2019 financials by the Company’s auditors, especially in light of a series of important new IFRS standards that are now applicable, such as IFRS 16 “Leases”. The Company, however, hereby reports certain preliminary, non-audited financials for the first half of 2019. Cash and cash equivalents as at June 30, 2019, amounted to EUR 7.8 million. This includes a further EUR 5.0 million tranche under a debt financing facility provided by the European Investment Bank (EIB) and the drawdown of the remainder of the first tranche (i.e. EUR 1.5 million (gross)) under a convertible notes facility provided by YA II PN, Ltd, an investment fund managed by Yorkville Advisors Global LP, both as previously announced on May 21, 2019.

Samsung Takes Mobile Photography to the Next Level with Industry’s

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 15 agosto 2019

Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd., a world leader in advanced semiconductor technology, today introduced 108 megapixel (Mp) Samsung ISOCELL Bright HMX, the first mobile image sensor in the industry to go beyond 100 million pixels. With the latest addition, Samsung will expand its 0.8μm image sensor offerings from its recently announced ultra-high 64Mp to 108Mp, a resolution equivalent to that of a high-end DSLR camera. Samsung ISOCELL Bright HMX is a one-of-a-kind mobile image sensor and is the result of close collaboration between Xiaomi Corp. and Samsung.
With over 100 million effective pixels enabling extremely sharp photographs rich in detail, the ISOCELL Bright HMX also produces exceptional photos even in extreme lighting conditions. Being the first mobile image sensor to adopt a large 1/1.33-inch size, the HMX can absorb more light in low-lit settings than smaller sensors and its pixel-merging Tetracell technology allows the sensor to imitate big-pixel sensors, producing brighter 27Mp images. In bright environments, the Smart-ISO, a mechanism that intelligently selects the level of amplifier gains according to the illumination of the environment for optimal light-to-electric signal conversion, switches to a low ISO to improve pixel saturation and produce vivid photographs. The mechanism uses a high ISO in darker settings that helps reduce noise, resulting in clearer pictures. For advanced filming, the HMX supports video recording without losses in field-of-view at resolutions up to 6K (6016 x 3384) 30-frames-per-second (fps).
