Installation of IntelliSpace Critical Care and Anesthesia system

Posted by fidest press agency su domenica, 17 novembre 2019

Amsterdam, the Netherlands and Jakarta, Indonesia – Royal Philips (NYSE: PHG, AEX: PHIA), a global leader in health technology, today announced a significant development in the digitization of patient treatment in Indonesia, with the country’s first installation of Philips IntelliSpace Critical Care and Anesthesia (ICCA) system at the Kasih Ibu Hospital in Denpasar, Bali. The critical care technology is part of Philips’ broader connected care suite aimed to help ensure seamless care and timely information flow between patients and the healthcare professionals who provide treatment. At Kasih Ibu Hospital, the critical care system will be integrated with Philips Patient Deterioration Solution – a portfolio of solutions to help manage patient deterioration outside the ICU – to better track patient conditions, helping the hospital achieve improved patient care, enhanced patient experience, lower costs and better staff satisfaction. The Intensive Care Unit (ICU) workflow is quite complex, involving admission/discharge, daily routine care, emergency, and unscheduled events, as well as managing end of life care. The sheer numbers of medications, scans, treatments, and tests administered pose a huge burden on patients and their loved ones, and the complex workflow demands a huge effort from all clinical teams involved. It is estimated there are 178 processes delivered to each ICU patient per day, with 1.7 of them associated with some error. For those teams, decision-making becomes a complex yet time-critical process, made even more difficult by data-overload caused by disparate devices, patient record systems and data sources. Digitization of healthcare services, especially in hospitals treating emergency and post-surgical patients, is a pressing need worldwide as hospitals cope with meeting surging healthcare demand while not compromising the quality of care and patient safety. As hospitals across the globe team with industry to improve and save lives, Indonesia is no exception. Acute care is particularly challenging, associated with the highest number of medical errors. Nearly all ICU patients suffer a potentially life-threatening error during their stay, with medication errors accounting for 78% of serious medical errors. Decision-making and diagnosis are also more difficult in critical care due to the vulnerability of patients, who can have co-morbidities and deteriorate rapidly.

The CoFI System

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 26 ottobre 2019

CorFlow Therapeutics AG (www.corflow-therapeutics.ch) announced that the FDA has designated the company’s CoFI (CorFlow Controlled Flow Infusion) System as a “Breakthrough Device” with a broad indication-for-use statement: “The CoFI™System is indicated for diagnostic assessment of the coronary microcirculation immediately following PCI (“stenting”), and to be a platform for controlled infusion of therapeutic agents into the microcirculation with or without vessel occlusion.” This FDA designation is a process aimed at fast-forwarding clinical development and regulatory review of the CoFI™ System. Toward that end, CorFlow continues to enroll patients into the ongoing European “MOCA I” clinical trial of the CoFI™ System and will expedite US submissions for clinical trials as a result of the Breakthrough Designation. The MOCA I trial is a safety and feasibility trial in 40 acute heart attack patients.
Based on recent market research in the US and Europe, CorFlow estimates that more than 170,000 patients annually need new technologies to improve their coronary microcirculation after standard stent implantation. Although current stent technologies have proven to be crucial in saving patients from death and complications after a heart attack, these technologies do not address the unmet medical need for improved coronary microcirculation. Indeed, reduced coronary microcirculation has proven to be an independent marker for complications after a heart attack such as heart failure and death.The objective of the FDA Breakthrough Designation Program is to provide patients and healthcare providers with timely access to innovative medical devices by speeding their development, assessment and review, while preserving the standards for medical device approvals. CMS has also instituted a new rule that will increase payments for medical devices designated by the FDA as breakthrough devices.

ProMIS Neurosciences Identifies Novel Antibody Candidates for Multiple System Atrophy

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 10 ottobre 2019

TORONTO and CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Oct. 08, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — ProMIS Neurosciences, Inc. (TSX: PMN) (OTCQB: ARFXF), a biotechnology company focused on the discovery and development of antibody therapeutics targeting toxic oligomers implicated in the development of neurodegenerative diseases, has identified several novel antibody candidates for Multiple System Atrophy (MSA), a severe, Parkinson’s-like disease caused by toxic, misfolded forms of the protein alpha-synuclein. The new antibody candidates join ProMIS’ strong pipeline of antibodies that demonstrate high selectivity for toxic misfolded proteins, implicated as a root cause of several neurodegenerative diseases, including Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS).Our preclinical in vitro studies indicate that antibody candidates targeting toxic forms of alpha-synuclein bind strongly to toxic alpha-synuclein aggregates derived from MSA-affected brain. The same antibodies protect cultured neurons from alpha-synuclein toxicity and spreading (propagation). MSA is a rare, progressive disorder caused by loss of nerve cells in the brain; it affects approximately15,000 people in the United States. Scientific studies indicate that toxic oligomers and small soluble fibrils, derived from naturally occurring alpha-synuclein, are a root cause of disease development and progression in MSA. No disease-modifying treatments exist in part because traditional drug development methods are unable to generate antibodies that can target with precision the neurotoxic forms of alpha-synuclein. The ProMIS platform is a novel, proprietary method for discovering and developing antibodies that can uniquely and precisely target highly toxic misfolded proteins, also called toxic oligomers or prions, while preserving normal forms of the protein and normal protein function. The platform not only generates high-quality antibody candidates but also delivers powerful, validated candidates in months versus years.

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.

Hyundai Mobis Develops South Korea’s First Camera Monitor System

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 1 agosto 2019

The side-view mirror, which has been obstructing drivers from parking in narrow parking spaces, will be moving inside cars. Plus, the provision of a field of view significantly wider than the existing one and enablement of even more innovative design through the use of the space that used to house the side-view mirror are a bonus.
A camera monitor system is a device that monitors the driving behavior of cars coming from the posterolateral direction and displays the obtained information on monitors located inside your car based on camera sensors installed in the place of the side-view mirror. Not only does this technology increase driving safety by significantly reducing blind spots through provision of a wider field of view, but it also enables innovative changes to your car’s exterior design through the application of various types of cameras.The camera sensors’ field of view is about 35˚, which is more than twice that of the regular side-view mirror, around 17°. Therefore, the driver can drive safely without having to check blind spots by turning their head.Because monitors, a type of display device, are installed inside your car, a camera monitor system results in almost no protruding areas. This makes it possible to eliminate unexpected noises such as wind noise caused by the side-view mirror, and it also reduces air resistance, thereby improving fuel economy as well.The Camera Monitoring System (CMS) developed by Hyundai Mobis is designed to replace the side mirrors on both sides as well as the rear-view mirror, and therefore, it has stronger product competitiveness. The camera sensors, located on the left and right sides of the vehicle and under the rear shark fin antenna, recognize the rear and posterolateral driving environments and display them in real-time on monitors located inside the vehicle.
As the system is an important safety technology that monitors a car’s posterolateral driving environment, Hyundai Mobis has put special effort into verifying its reliability so that it can function normally even under severe conditions such as bad weather. Through that, Hyundai Mobis has secured a degree of reliability for the system sufficient enough for the driver to view the driving situation more clearly than with the naked eye in bad weather such as heavy rain or snow. In addition, Hyundai Mobis’s CMS has also satisfied all applicable laws and regulatory standards through testing by an authorized certification body.

“Plasticoni 2019. Market-system’s animal and human”

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 3 Mag 2019

Mantova Sabato 4 maggio ore 18.00 la Galleria Arianna Sartori di Mantova, nella sede di via Ippolito Nievo 10, inaugura la mostra “Plasticoni 2019. Market-system’s animal and human” dello scultore Mariano Pieroni, alla presenza dell’artista.
Per Mariano Pieroni è la prima personale nella Città di Mantova, dopo aver partecipato alla “Casa Museo Sartori” di Castel d’Ario alle rassegne: “L’arte italiana dalla terra alla tavola” nel 2015 con l’opera “Puledro” (scultura polimaterica, plasticone), “50anni d’Arte in Lombardia” nel 2016 con l’opera “Leviero 2” (scultura polimaterica, plasticone), “Animalia. Natura & Arte” nel 2017 con l’opera “Mandrillo” (scultura polimaterica, plasticone) e “ARTeSPORT” nel 2019 con l’opera “Tennista” (scultura in porcellana), esposizione curata da Arianna Sartori e che diventa l’occasione per approfondire il lavoro di questo artista affermato in Italia e all’estero.
Plasticoni 2019 Market-system’s animal and human vengono percepiti o interpretati come rappresentazioni Pop-Art, ma sono linguaggio simbolico che esprime un giudizio complesso, riferito al sistema filosofico-sociale mercantile attuale.Il massimo del kitsch, con le etichette ruffiane da cui siamo assediati in ogni ora della nostra giornata, è una provocazione indigesta quanto squillante, che, con il dilatarsi del tempo, si decanta e diventa storia.Perché PLASTICONI? Perché la plastica è il problema più grosso dell’inquinamento, che minaccia di trasformare il nostro pianeta in una discarica. Tutto questo è talmente evidente e semplice da apparire come una ovvietà. Pochi sentono l’urgenza di doversene fare carico personalmente. Mariano Pieroni è nato a Barga (Lu) il 17 giugno 1937, vive e opera a Solbiate Arno (Va). Orario dal Lunedì al Sabato 10.00-12.30 / 15.30-19.30 Chiuso festivi.
