The 30th International Symposium on ALS/MND

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 13 dicembre 2019

Orion has studied the effects of oral levosimendan on respiratory function in patients with ALS and presented biomarker and pharmacokinetic data from previous studies, a systematic literature review on pharmacological effects of levosimendan, and baseline characteristics and status update on the progression of REFALS phase 3 study at the 30th International Symposium on ALS/MND in Perth, Australia last week.
The REFALS trial studying the effects of oral levosimendan on respiratory function in patients with ALS, completed enrolment in July 2019. The trial enrolled 496 adult patients with definite, probable or laboratory supported probable ALS and some degree of respiratory dysfunction (sitting SVC 60-90%) at 104 clinical sites in 14 countries in EU, North America and Australia. Randomised patients are treated with oral levosimendan (target dose 2mg daily) or placebo for 48 weeks in a double-blind, parallel group design.Baseline characteristics of the patients enrolled in REFALS are similar to those of other recent large clinical trials in ALS. Due to inclusion criteria, all patients in REFALS study have already had signs of decrease in their respiratory function. The patients enrolled in REFALS were on average 59.3 years of age, 61.9% percent male, and had experienced symptoms more than 2 years and had substantial disability based on the ALS-FRS-R score. Most patients were receiving riluzole and almost one third of patients in North America had started edaravone. Safety labs revealed relatively common increases in liver tests, low creatinine and frequently increased markers of muscle injury including CRP, creatine kinase and troponin T.

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 6 marzo 2019

PanTheryx, a biotechnology company committed to realizing the potential of novel interventions to address a wide range of serious GI microbiome related health conditions, announced today the results of two new studies of its flagship product DiaResQ® at its first annual scientific symposium for clinicians. The symposium titled “DiaResQ: A Scientific Update” presented the findings along with case studies from around the globe. The meeting was held at the Shangri La Hotel in Bangkok over two days, March 1-2.
According to the World Health Organization, diarrhea is the second leading cause of death for children under five, with an estimated 1.7 billion cases of childhood diarrhea occurring each year. More than 80% of the cases occur in developing countries, including those in Africa and South Asia. Standard of care is limited, and primarily focused on symptom relief and preventing dehydration.DiaResQ is a nutritional intervention that contains immune factors, micronutrients, and macronutrients that work with the body to address the underlying cause of diarrhea. In clinical trials, DiaResQ resolved a majority of cases of pediatric diarrhea after one day of use. No serious adverse events attributable to DiaResQ have been reported in its clinical trials that have collectively enrolled over 1,000 children and adults.“We’re excited to bring together our international partners and key opinion leaders to share the latest scientific substantiation of the safety and efficacy of DiaResQ,” said Scott Hyman, senior vice president at PanTheryx. “It’s vital that we continue to make progress in addressing diarrhea, one of the leading causes of morbidity and mortality worldwide. We are working closely with clinicians and our partners to educate the medical community about the benefits of DiaResQ and ensure it’s available to everyone, especially children who are most at risk.”

Annual San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 12 dicembre 2018

Generon BioMed Holding Ltd. (Generon), announced today at the annual San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium (SABCS), positive results from a placebo-controlled trial with F-627, a recombinant human Granulocyte Colony Stimulating Factor (rhG-CSF) protein, designed using Generon’s DikineTM technology platform.Led by Principle Investigator Dr. John Glaspy, Estelle, Abe and Marjorie Endowed Chair in Cancer Research at the Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center of UCLA, this global study of 122 woman with stage II-IV breast cancer receiving Myelotoxic chemotherapy demonstrates that subcutaneous administration of F-627 significantly reduced the duration of Grade 4 (severe) neutropenia in chemotherapy cycle 1 (P<0.0001); the mean treatment difference was 2.8 days (1.1 days vs. 3.9 days in the placebo arm). F-627 administration also resulted in lower incidence and shorter duration of Grade 4, Grade 3 and Grade 2 neutropenia. Other significant results included the finding that treatment with F-627 significantly reduced the incidence of febrile neutropenia (FN) (P<0.0016). The incidence of FN in the experimental arm was 4.8% and 28.2% in the placebo arm during cycle 1. Subjects in the experimental arm also had lower rates of antibiotic medication and pain medication use. In this study, F-627 was shown to be safe and well tolerated with no deaths, no injection site reactions and less gastrointestinal AEs (diarrhea, vomiting, stomatitis, and gastritis) than the placebo arm. During cycle 1 in the experimental arm, the five most common TEAEs (incidence rate >10%) were leukopenia, anemia, thrombocytopenia, nausea, and alopecia. Across all cycles, there were 17 SAEs from 15 subjects of which 15 were FN.A single subcutaneous injection of F-627 significantly reduced the duration and incidence of severe neutropenia and febrile neutropenia while maintaining an excellent safety profile in patients with breast cancer undergoing high-dose chemotherapy.

amsterdamAmsterdam 25 & 26 October 2015 the Netherlands (Halls 8,9,10 & 11). the Offshore WIND Conference which will be held in October as part of Offshore Energy. The chairman of the Offshore WIND Conference 2016 is Stephen Bolton, operations director, Bibby Marine Services. Next to the offshore WIND Conference, the Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion (OTEC) Symposium will be organized on 26 October as well as the Marine Energy Event, in cooperation with EWA, on the same day, further strengthening the ties between oil and gas and the renewable industries.
Offshore Energy is an annual event focused on the complete offshore energy industry. It covers both the exploration and production of the conventional energy resources oil & gas as well as the expanding renewable part of the energy mix such as offshore wind and marine renewable energy. Renewables play an important role during OEEC 2016, which is why it is the ideal place to find out where the future of energy is heading.
Next to the exhibition that covers 4 massive halls at Amsterdam RAI, totaling an area of approximately 26,000 m², more than 80 speakers representing some of the biggest players in the offshore energy industry will feature at the conference. The conference presents an extensive three day conference program consisting of keynotes, technical sessions, master classes, meetings of industry organizations, the Marine Energy Event and the Offshore WIND Conference.A fascinating mix of leaders from the business, buyers, investors, engineers and other interested parties within the offshore energy sector will get the opportunity to meet each other at OEEC and it is precisely this balance between supply and demand which is bringing more and more interested people to our expanding OEEC in Amsterdam every year.The current oil prices and the rise of the renewables have led us to believe 2016 will see the industry ‘Entering a new area’, which has also been chosen as theme for OEEC 2016. The theme will also be reflected in the extensive three day conference program where subjects such as subsea processing & infrastructure, decommissioning, knowledge management, asset integrity, Iran, LNG and optimizing value by building alliances across the E&P chain will be presented and discussed.
One of the exciting new developments this year will be the attendance of Iranian companies who will present themselves at the Iran pavilion during the entire event. OEEC 2016 together with CBC Oil & Gas have tailored activities for Iranian companies to meet the international energy industry at their national pavilion and during a dedicated technical session on Iran, where the developments in the Iranian oil industry will be discussed.

Symposium reframes dialogue on secular society, religion, and the common good

Posted by fidest press agency su lunedì, 6 aprile 2015

bahai community canadaVANCOUVER — Leading Canadian scholars, public servants, and civil society actors gathered here for a symposium at the University of British Columbia from 22 to 24 March to explore the meaning of building a “whole society” and the constructive role of religion in the secular, public sphere. Organized by a national committee representing a cross-section of civil society organizations in Canada, including the Public Affairs Office of the Canadian Baha’i Community, the conference, titled “Our Whole Society: Bridging the Religious-Secular Divide”, involved some 140 participants. Speakers included: Andrew Bennett, Canada’s Ambassador for Religious Freedom; Marie Wilson, a commissioner with Canada’s Truth and Reconciliation Commission; Doug White, Director of the Centre for Pre-Confederation Treaties and Reconciliation at the University of Vancouver Island; and Gerald Filson, Director of Public Affairs of the Baha’i Community of Canada and Chair of the Canadian Interfaith Conversation, among others.A panel discussion at “Our Whole Society: Bridging the Religious-Secular Divide” conference, held 22-24 March 2015 at the University of British Colombia in… »
Dr. Filson gave the following perspective on the insights gleaned from the conference: “Many spoke about the importance of giving greater space in society to the positive influence which the concepts and principles of religious thinking can provide, that freedom to believe is a necessary condition in secular societies even as we safeguard the gains in social harmony and the richness of culture which pluralism brings to modern societies.””In the final analysis it is the love and fellowship and an attitude that others matter to each of us which will create the foundations of a society in which all members of the human family will be able to participate in the discourses that shape society,” continued Dr. Filson.This year’s conference followed a similar event held in May 2013 at McGill University in Montreal, Canada. Geoffrey Cameron, Principal Researcher for the Baha’i Community of Canada, and member of the conference’s steering committee explained: “We began this initiative about four years ago, when a small group of people came together out of a shared concern to articulate more clearly the positive role of religion in Canada’s public discourse.” “We held one conference and continued working with each other and a network of others,” continued Mr. Cameron. He elaborated that their dialogue sought to generate greater understanding about how society could “reconcile religion, secularism and the common good”.The conference featured plenary sessions addressing several overarching themes: the proper role of religion in the public sphere; the merits and limits of secularism; the process of reconciliation between diverse peoples; how to define the common good in the context of religious pluralism; the scope and limits of religious freedom; and the role of youth in society.Interspersed between these presentations were workshops where practitioners shared insights from experience.”We need to move beyond the binary of religious versus secular, public versus private, faith versus reason, and concentrate instead on working together for the good of our whole society,” stated the Reverend Karen Hamilton, the General Secretary of the Canadian Council of Churches, in the opening presentation.Discussions on occasion explored the tension in secular societies between two aspects of religion’s place in public life: on the one hand, secularism provides an approach to governance that includes basic rights to religious liberty for the individual; on the other, when taken too far, it can restrict the role of religious perspectives in public discourse.Professor Paul Bramadat, one of Canada’s leading scholars of religion, cautioned, “it is important to keep religious tools and concepts alive in public discourse and not lose their meaning through secular ‘translation’.”However, Alia Hogben, director of the Canadian Council of Muslim Women, made the case that society needs criteria to assess the role of religion in public life: “Does this religion contribute to the common good? Does it serve the well-being of all? If so, then it should be admitted into public discourse” she said.Professor John Stackhouse, a theologian at Regent College, posited that the diversity of religions in Canada requires every religion to re-examine its teachings in order to “excavate the grounds on which to live with others who are different”.Prof Stackhouse also highlighted the importance of religion’s place in the web of social institutions.”Part of building a whole society,” he said, “is investing in ‘intermediate organizations’ between the individual and the state – such as religious groups and civil society.” Religions, he explained, face pressures in the secular world because they present obstacles to consumerism.One of the highlights of the event was a session with Dr. Andrew Bennett, Canada’s Ambassador for Religious Freedom. Bennett described the relationship between the defence of religious freedom and the promotion of human dignity, which are essential to define a common life together.”It is important for institutions in society to have the competence to engage with diverse religions,” he said. “Religious literacy informs peoples’ actions in society, and it is through open conversations with each other that we improve this literacy.”The conference also looked at the role that young people play in constructive social transformation. Speaking during a workshop on youth and the spirit of social change, Christine Boyle, Director of the NGO Spirited Social Change, noted that “many social movements led by youth reflect a spiritual longing to create a better world through selfless service.”Another speaker, Eric Farr from the Baha’i community, echoed these thoughts, stating that “many youth aspire for a vision of spiritual change – that is, a vision of a more unified and just society…We need to trust in the capacity of all and the longing of all to contribute to the well-being of the whole.”The closing address of the conference was given by Doug White, in a session titled “Recognizing our oneness: Reconciliation as the challenge of our time”. Addressing this theme, Mr. White, a former Chief of Snuneymuxw First Nation, said that dialogue would need to move beyond many of the adversarial relationships which currently characterize Canadian society.”Pitting yourselves against each other is not a pathway to reconciliation” he said. “We need an active and full discourse about the social change necessary to realize reconciliation in society. This can come either from great suffering or reaching out and seeking understanding between different people in society.””[Reconciliation] demands a new mindset and orientation to ourselves, each other and with those around us. This is a spiritual, moral, and ethical challenge…”Reflecting on the event, Mr. Cameron said, “We were very pleased with the quality of conversation at the conference, and the genuine excitement expressed at the ideas shared by other participants.”He explained that the conference is part of an ongoing “process of collective inquiry”.”It is collective because it is growing and expanding to include more people. And it is an inquiry because we are motivated and unified by the questions we ask, not the presumption that we have the correct answers.”

Trulli di Alberobello, Italy

Numeri ed esiti dell’educational tour per operatori turistici statunitensi, organizzato dall’Assessorato al Turismo della Regione Puglia e dalla Camera di Commercio di BariCala il sipario sull’Italy Symposium USA 2011, l’educational tour dedicato al mercato turistico americano, realizzato dal 14 al 19 novembre dall’ Assessorato al Turismo della Regione Puglia e dalla Camera di Commercio di Bari in collaborazione con ENIT Nord America e ITPC (Italian Travel Promotion Council), l’associazione cui aderiscono i più importanti tour operator degli Stati Uniti.Il territorio regionale ha ospitato per una settimana 250 operatori del turismo statunitensi tra stampa, tour operator e agenzie viaggi. In un fitto calendario di eventi in si sono intrecciati business, cultura e turismo: due convegni per la presentazione del territorio e dell’offerta turistica regionale (Symposium part I and II); più di 500 incontri business to business fra operatori pugliesi e americani; un tour di sei giorni per la Puglia, con tappe a Bari, Trani, Monte Sant’Angelo, Alberobello, Martina Franca, Ostuni, Lecce; la collaborazione con i migliori professionisti pugliesi dell’enogastronomia, della ricettività, della ristorazione; uno show finale di balli popolari pugliesi e musica lirica ospitato dal salone dei servizi della Camera di Commercio.Soddisfazione anche da parte della Camera di Commercio di Bari: “Siamo stati l’unico caso italiano di un ente camerale – sostiene il presidente Alessandro Ambrosi – che abbia cooperato con la Regione per l’organizzazione di un Symposium e ne sono felice. Sono anche convinto che questa iniziativa saprà generare concrete occasioni d’affari per i nostri alberghi, i nostri ristoratori e la nostra ricettività in genere. Lo dimostra il successo degli incontri B2B tenutisi nel Salone della Camera di Commercio il pomeriggio del 14 novembre: quasi cinque ore di lavori, con più di 100 aziende pugliesi che si sono incontrate con 36 tour operator americani. Mi pare che una vetrina del genere capiti molto raramente per un territorio e per la sua offerta turistica. Questo format vincente vedremo di applicarlo nuovamente ad altri mercati cui rivolgere il nostro prodotto turistico”.
