“Worldwide Aortic Aneurysm Market Trends and Drivers, Restraints, and Opportunities 2017-2023”

Posted by fidest press agency su domenica, 13 agosto 2017

Aortic AneurysmThe Global Aortic Aneurysm Market is estimated to witness a CAGR of 6.6% during the forecast period 2017-2023. The aortic aneurysm market is analyzed based on three segments – type, product types, and regions. The increasing lifestyle diseases and smoking population are the factors that increase the chances for aortic aneurysm. Along with this, the growing aging population, favorable reimbursement, and technological advancements in products are driving the growth of the aortic aneurysm market. However, lack of awareness about the disease, stringent regulatory approval procedures, and risk associated with the procedure are hampering the growth of the market. The main unmet need in the market is endoleaking, which increases the mortality rate.Currently, the market players are developing technologically advanced stent grafts for the treatment of complex aortic aneurysm repairs. The EVAR segment contributed more than 70% of the total market share in 2016. A major focus in this segment is expected to drive the growth of the aortic aneurysm market in the future. The market of aortic aneurysm is dominated by Cook Medical, Medtronic PLC, and W.L. Gore and Associates, who occupy around 85% of the market share. Other small players are adopting various strategies to increase their market share. Endologix acquired Trivascular to expand its product portfolio, thereby being able to address the current and future needs in the aortic aneurysm market.

Endocrinologia: le novità del CUEM

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 8 luglio 2016

Brescia. santa_giulia_brescia_010_choistro_san_salvatoreL’acromegalia è la patologia che deforma il viso e le estremità degli arti e determina ingrandimento degli organi interni in età adulta, causata da un eccesso di ormone della crescita (GH) che porta ad un relativo aumento dell’IGF-1 ed è determinato nel 95-99% dei casi da un tumore (adenoma) dell’ipofisi che insorge tra i 20 e i 40 anni. Si tratta di una condizione relativamente rara, con una prevalenza di 40-70 casi per milione di abitanti, interessa soggetti adulti anche in età giovanile che entrano in una spirale di problemi invalidanti, dalla modificazione della forma del corpo, l’ingrandimento di arti e volto, l’aumento delle dimensioni degli organi interni come il cuore e lo sviluppo di gravi complicanze metaboliche come il diabete mellito assai recentemente analizzato in un articolo del gruppo di Brescia sulla prestigiosa rivista Trends in Endocrinology and Metabolism. Si tratta di una patologia lenta ed insidiosa che spesso riceve una diagnosi tardiva, circa 8-10 anni dopo l’insorgenza del tumore ipofisario, quando compaiono i segni clinici evidenti talvolta anche a livello del campo visivo con effetti a lungo termine irreversibili.
Questo significa che molti pazienti non vengono trattati adeguatamente o vengono trattati in ritardo accumulando un maggior rischio di vedere la propria vita ridotta sino a 10 anni e un tasso di mortalità doppio rispetto alla popolazione generale della stessa età.
“Ecco perché è necessario mobilitare e concentrare l’attenzione dei clinici sui primissimi segni per intervenire efficacemente con una terapia che riduca mortalità, prevenga le recidive del tumore asportato chirurgicamente o ne riduca le dimensioni preservando la corretta funzionalità della ghiandola prima che il danno sia fatto” spiega il Prof. Giustina, Ordinario di Endocrinologia all’Università di Brescia e Co-Presidente del CUEM i cui esperti saranno riuniti a congresso a Brescia il 7 e 8 luglio prossimi “Eppure le attuali terapie non sempre sono in grado di raggiungere gli obiettivi terapeutici: tra il 30 e il 40% dei pazienti non raggiunge il controllo biochimico nonostante le cure, situazione che si traduce in un progressivo e inesorabile peggioramento della qualità di vita dei soggetti acromegalici che vedono i sintomi aumentare e peggiorare. Per non parlare dell’aspettativa di vita che si riduce a 68 anni per gli uomini e a 74 per le donne”.
Il nuovo farmaco ‘analogo della somatostatina’ (pasireotide) presenta un ampio profilo di affinità di legame per quattro dei cinque sottotipi recettoriali della somatostatina, con un risultato di più elevata efficacia. Nello studio PAOLA ha ottenuto il controllo di malattia in circa il 20% dei pazienti non ben controllati dagli analoghi della somatostatina di prima generazione
Cosa ci possiamo aspettare da pasireotide in acromegalia? “Un cambio di marcia nella terapia dell’acromegalia. E’ una possibilità concreta per i pazienti ‘non responder’ con le attuali terapie e per i quali esistono importanti ‘unmet needs’ ossia necessità insoddisfatte” afferma Giustina “Pasireotide viene somministrato con una singola iniezione intramuscolare ogni 4 settimane e permette la riduzione o il controllo della massa tumorale, migliorando sia i segni che i sintomi della malattia. Il tipo di somministrazione invece migliora notevolmente il comfort dei pazienti e quindi l’aderenza alla terapia”. Approvato nel 2014 arriva ora sul mercato italiano.

Brits Look to Malaga for a Jubilee Bank Holiday Break

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 9 marzo 2012

London, (PRNewswire) -Data collected by dealchecker.co.uk shows that when it comes to taking advantage of this year’s extra four day weekend, Brits have their eyes cast to Spain- dealchecker.co.uk, a leading online holiday specialist, say that many Brits are already thinking about how they will be spending the additional long weekend afforded to them by the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee. Customer enquiry trends for visitors to dealchecker.co.uk reveal that Brits are looking to use their extra time off to escape to sunnier climes, with flights to Malaga proving to be the most popular enquiry for the Jubilee bank holiday weekend. dealchecker.co.uk say that having an additional long weekend to play with could be making Brits more adventurous about where they spend their short breaks. Mark Attwell, MD of dealchecker.co.uk, comments: “Malaga has been an enduringly popular holiday destination for many years, but on long weekends the tradition for Brits has often been to staycation. We here at dealchecker.co.uk think that the four additional days off in a row this year, brought about by the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, could be tempting Brits into jetting abroad rather than staying at home.” Although it was the stand-out destination for customer enquiries, Malaga isn’t the only Mediterranean destination Brits are eyeing up for their long weekend. Flights to Faro, Alicante, Majorca, Tenerife, Bodrum and Ibiza also proved popular with visitors and dealchecker.co.uk say this could mark the start of a new trend for British travellers. Attwell continues: “The dwindling cost of flights to Mediterranean destinations has been inviting more and more holidaymakers to head to the Med for their holidays, from long two-week stays to shorter jaunts for some weekend sunshine. As prices for flights and accommodation continue to drop, we foresee that more travellers will be choosing to spend their long weekends in exciting overseas destinations rather than staycationing.” dealchecker.co.uk was founded in June 2005.

Report analyzing long-term development trends

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 23 ottobre 2010

On 4th November 2010, at 10 a.m. EST, the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) will publish on line, in print and in 10 languages the 20th anniversary edition of the annual Human Development Report, The Real Wealth of Nations: Pathways to Human Development.  The Report provides new insights into the trends and patterns of development and introduces measurement innovations on inequality, gender and acute poverty. The 2010 Human Development Report will be launched at the UN by UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, UNDP Administrator Helen Clark and Nobel laureate Amartya Sen, who helped conceive the Human Development Index (HDI) and the overall human development approach. Lead author Jeni Klugman will present the main findings of the 2010 Report.  The original 1990 Human Development Report, written by a team of independent experts led by the late economist Mahbub ul Haq, argued that “people are the real wealth of a nation,” and introduced the HDI – a composite measure of health, education and income – as an alternative to purely macroeconomic assessments of national progress. The 2010 Report celebrates and continues that legacy of innovation.  The 2010 Report will be available on line and in print in Arabic, Catalan, Chinese, English, French, German, Japanese, Portuguese, Russian and Spanish. Summaries of the Report will be available in additional languages, including Basque, Italian, Polish, Swedish and Vietnamese. A full press kit will be available in Arabic, Chinese, English, French, Russian, and Spanish.  Six broadcast quality videos accompany the Report and will be freely available for use by broadcast outlets. Five of the videos portray multi-generational families from Brazil, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Indonesia, Kenya and Morocco telling how their own lives and countries have changed over the past 40 years. The sixth video features an interview with Amartya Sen discussing the HDI’s impact and origins. The Report’s multilingual website will be re-launched on 4 November, with extensive, interactive new data resources covering most of the world’s nations, which can be used to track changes in countries over time. Visitors are invited to create their own development indices using the latest statistics.  The full series of Reports since 1990 will be available on the Human Development Report website in the latest PDF formats, for review and free downloading, along with all the indices and other statistical tables produced for the 2010 Report. The site will include new country profiles for all UN Member States.

2nd “New trends meeting”

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 2 ottobre 2010

Terrasini (PA), Saturday 2nd October 2010 at Piazza Duomo in Terrasini, starting at 18:00, there will be held 2nd “New Trends Meeting” organized by the Music and Culture Association.
The association explicitly refers to the extraordinary experiences of social anti-mafia that were, in the late ’70s, the “music and culture club” and “OM Group”, which merged later into “Radio Aut”.
On the stage of Terrasini will be performing artists and ensembles that choose not to adhere to the models proposed by the music and show business and they share their “Sicilianity” and the involvement in promoting the culture of legality through their art. At the meeting will take part: Alfio Antico, Gaspare Cucinella, Mario Crispi and Arenaria, Arie di Sicilia, Ipercussonici, Giacomo Sferlazzo, Clara Salvo, Murra, Ultravixen, Om, Collettivo Impastato, Giampiero Mazzone, Su’ddocu: Annamaria Tammaro and Margherita Ortolani, DNA Sud, Libere Note with D. Li Puma and Moffo Schimmenti.
During the evening Alfio Antico will deliver the 1st prize Enzo Barbarino in memory of the cultural operator who, in the ’80s, worked to promote sicilian folk music in the area between Terrasini and Cinisi, in a time where our roots were about to lose together with the last great songwriters and performers. The first edition of the meeting was held in 1976 on the beach Magaggiari in Cinisi. Peppino Impastato and his companions had understood what was the unifying power of music in the fight against the mafias and its social and cultural function of dissent and protest against the political system.
