The Social Media Evolution – From Myspace to butN?

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 29 ottobre 2014

Social-media-evolutionSpeaking at a news conference to launch butN in Europe this morning its founder Robin Chater pointed out why butN goes well beyond other networking systems such as LinkedIn.“butN is about business and is geared to face-to-face networking – using Internet connectivity, GPS and other technologies to allow professionals to build up contacts globally with people they have met and therefore really know.”Robin is frequently asked whether his brainchild is effectively a business-dating site.“There is a clear line between work and private life and I think every day we draw that distinction without any problem”.Robin rejected initial descriptions of butN as “a Tinder for business” . He insisted that “getting to know the interesting professionals and executives in your vicinity is a great advantage when you are away from home on business and your time is normally at such a premium. If you join a conventional online business-networking site like LinkedIn it does not matter where the other people you connect with are. You are not, after all, using the network to actually meet them.”But he had to admit that the team developing butN did sign up to a number of dating sites to carry out their initial research – much to the anger of one partner when she discovered romantic messages arriving on her husband’s smartphone. But the importance of such research was because dating sites have pushed the boundaries of connectivity far more than general social networks.Where business networking differs markedly from dating is, according to Robin, “that there is no ulterior motive or fixed objective in networking and definitely no good night kiss. Although there is always a social element to both dating and business networking the important factors are not what someone looks like or their personality – but who they work for, who they know and what new commercial or technical insights the other person can provide.”

Proposed AstraZeneca Megamerger a “Complementary Fit” with Pfizer Thanks to Potential Pipeline Gains, says GlobalData

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 15 maggio 2014

londonLONDON, UK (GlobalData) As Pfizer’s potential takeover of AstraZeneca looms closer, the success in its bid for consolidation with AstraZeneca would result in promising pipeline gains and more than solidify its position as the world’s largest pharmaceutical company, at a time when Swiss giants Novartis and F. Hoffman-La-Roche are closing in on its historical leadership, says research and consulting firm GlobalData.Joshua Owide, GlobalData’s Director of Healthcare Industry Dynamics, states that this deal would be unlike any other in Pfizer’s corporate evolution to date, as the majority of value involved in the merger attempt would come from Pfizer’s ability to nurture ongoing research and development (R&D) activities at AstraZeneca.GlobalData also believes that a Pfizer/AstraZeneca megamerger could create an R&D juggernaut, with aggregate expenditure of over $11 billion, surpassing current R&D spending leaders Novartis and Roche. Additionally, this consolidation would create a pipeline with overall projected sales of $10.8 billion in 2019.Owide says: “The proposed purchase of AstraZeneca appears to be a very complementary fit with Pfizer, especially given the latter’s plans to spin off some of the mature components of its prescription pharmaceutical business.“AstraZeneca’s expiring drugs would meld into Pfizer’s Established Products division, and the former’s promising pipeline would bolster the other two Pfizer business units, which focus on new medications and consumer health, making them prime candidates for divestment.”  Pfizer and AstraZeneca both have complementary areas in R&D, and a merger would give Pfizer a much larger oncology pipeline in particular, thanks to the fold-in of AstraZeneca’s late-stage, anti-cancer agents. These include moxetumomab, olaparib and tremelimumab, which is a candidate developed by Pfizer and licensed to MedImmune.Indeed, with Roche having launched its latest generation of oncology antibody therapies in 2013, AstraZeneca now boasts the most promising oncology pipeline in the industry, with projected 2019 revenues of $4.7 billion, ahead of Merck & Co. and Bristol-Myers Squibb. Furthermore, AstraZeneca is currently investigating compounds in 60 oncology indications across Phase I and Phase II trials, representing a significant strategic opportunity for Pfizer.Owide states that the implications of this are significant. The branded oncology market is forecast to grow by annual sales of $76.7 billion between 2013 and 2019, making it the largest disease market by a sizable margin and also the fastest-growing one, with a CAGR of 10.5%.He continues: “The potential gain that Pfizer could extract from AstraZeneca’s pipeline, in relation to other components of the combined business, shows that any value from its deal with AstraZeneca would be heavily tied to its ability to nurture the UK giant’s emerging pipeline.“Of course, such a deal would carry a high level of risk, and Pfizer will look to argue this point as it attempts to convince AstraZeneca’s management and shareholders to relinquish their control for a fair price,” Owide concludes.

Gene therapy

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 13 gennaio 2012

Evry (France)The results of a Phase I clinical trial of gene therapy for limb-girdle muscular dystrophy type 2C (a rare neuromuscular disease) have just been published in the journal Brain on January 11, 2012. The trial started in December 2006 and has been sponsored by Généthon (the not-for-profit research lab created by the French Muscular Dystrophy Association (AFM) and which is funded almost exclusively by donations from France’s annual Telethon). The trial at Pitié-Salpêtriere (AP-HP) is being led by principal investigators Professor Serge Herson (Head of the Department of Internal Medicine 1) and Professor Olivier Benveniste (Institute of Myology). The study’s primary objective was to evaluate the safety of local injection of increasing doses of an adeno-associated virus (AAV) vector harboring a “healthy” copy of the gene for gamma-sarcoglycan (the defective protein in this disease). Secondary objectives included the assessment of local and systemic immune reactions and the quality of gene transfer in the injected muscles in terms of efficacy, expression and distribution.

The Evolution of the Business Leadership

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 9 ottobre 2010

Kuwait (MMD Newswire) “The Evolution of the Business Leadership Concept and Its Applicability to Developing Markets” by Ali Derisavi examines new and more practical ways to approach the idea of business development in emerging markets. In his book, Derisavi argues that Western-based ideas about business do not always work in other markets, Based on experience and research, Derisavi examines why proven concepts like capitalism and democracy do not seem to successfully operate in developing countries. By exploring noteworthy democratic failures, such as Iraq, Derisavi promotes a more considerate treatment of local cultures, insisting that one economic size does not fit all. Quick fixes are not the solution, says Derisavi, and he instead urges increased education, patience, and even a redefinition of success. All these, he states, can bring true and sustainable development and have a positive contribution to the environment. For college students, professors and researchers, Derisavi’s book is meant to give a fresh look at global affairs.
About the Author Ali Derisavi holds a bachelor’s degree in management information system, a Master of Business Administration, and a number of professional certifications. With over a decade of managerial experience in customer service, sales and marketing in a number of developing countries, Derisavi conducts training courses in sales, management, marketing and strategy.
