Case 2 Salix Pharm

...Salix has been a successful pharmaceutical company for 15 years. They have used the “search and develop strategy” in the US GI market for continued growth. The question remains can they continue to be successful with this narrow strategy or do they need to alter their mission? Do they need to revamp their “search and develop” strategy? Key issues Salix encounters are increased use of generics, limited scope of disease treatment, and dependency upon other research companies to initially start and develop chemicals. If Salix wants to expand their strategy scope, they could focus on medications in other areas of the body, they could expand outside of the US market, they could further develop their international partner network, or they could focus on their own research instead acquiring licenses and rights to other chemicals. Introduction Salix is a small pharmaceuticals company started in 1989. Since this time, Salix has acquired the rights to develop and market four major prescription compounds. They have become a successful player in the US gastrointestinal market, while profiting from licensing their products in other countries. Although Salix has been successful, the co owners must make a decision on whether or not their current strategy is sustainable. Can they still “search and develop” acquired compounds and stay successful? Salix needs to determine if their existing prescription drugs’ profitability can last while they find another research companies drugs...

...10/31/12 Absolute vs. Relative In the biblical reading of Exodus 20:1-17, Matthew 22:34-40 it basically talked about the Ten Commandment, saying that it is absolute. There is not too much really debate about, stating that you shall not murder, shall not steal and so on. It is more of the ideal way of how we should live by and it could be hard to do so because we don’t live in a perfect world. Also following the commandments could be hard to do if you are not religious. But then again not to many people would disagree with the Ten Commandments. Talking about relative we read an article on the topic. In the Ten Commandments its states that I shall not commit adultery, but if we decide to do so we can. Is it wrong to cheat on your husband or wife, yes but there is even a website that basically lets you meet people who want to commit adultery. There is even someone who is making money off of this idea. So I personally think that it is not okay but we do have the freedom to do so and that really goes back to what we think is right. When it comes to the question of which ethical system leads to a more virtuous life, I’m more of for relative. I think I have the tools to know what is right and wrong; it is up to me to make choses. Now I am not saying go around and do bad things because I know I will be forgiven, but I do think that I have to make some mistakes to really learn what I truly believe in. I think the absolute there is no real way to argue against it and what is...

...Part 1- Framing the Project Portfolio Management Problem 1. What are the objectives? The objective is to research and develop pharmaceuticals products based on the selections that minimize cost and maximize value and sales. There will be a discussion of which projects will be allocated additional resources and at what cost. 2. What are the constraints? Competition is usually between brand-name drugs. Constraints for the study include risky drug discovery and development which could cause harm to participants and also waste money used on development. Other restrictions include the amount of time spent on Research and Development which leads to increased costs. There is also the concern with low return on investments and the emergence of generic drugs and competitors. 3. What are the risks involved? There are both technical and commercial risks involved. The most risky aspect of the project is within the research and development process. Drug discovery and development is extremely risky, time-consuming, and expensive. Millions of dollars are spent in the R& D process and many of the drugs created do not make it past the Basic Research stage. The risks associated with low return on investment or no return at all on the investment pose a big risk for pharmaceutical companies. 4. What are your alternatives? The company can choose to allocate resources to other projects or services besides pharmaceutical drugs. There are possible lines extensions in the areas of......

...Amanda McCloskey Clinical Trials in Children Pharmacology NURS 2820 Anoka Ramsey Community College Children are a unique population with distinct differences from adults. As they grow and develop, several changes occur and therefore it is difficult to predict a child’s response to a drug. This was one of the main reasons children were not included in drug trials until recently. Absence of regulation that required drug companies to conduct trials in children, and lack of facilities, equipment/technology, and expertise were also challenges that discouraged drug testing in children. In addition, there were numerous ethical concerns which involved fears of harming children and increased liability issues (The Necessity and Challenges of Clinical Research Involving Children, 2004). As a result, children did not receive potentially lifesaving or beneficial treatment when needed. Clinical trials in children are critical because they provide information on the drug’s safety, dosing, and effectiveness (Drug Research and Children, 2011). Prior to the 1990s, the FDA did not acquire legislation related to investigating drugs in children. The Pediatric Rule of 11994, mandated drug labels to consist of instructions for children, however it proved to be fairly ineffective since the information used on these labels was based on adult dosing and trial and error in pediatric patients. In 1997 the Food and Drug Administration Modernization Act (FDAMA) was established. The act......

...Turing Pharmaceuticals RES/351 Turing Pharmaceuticals In recent weeks Turing Pharmaceuticals has been in the news for raising the price of prescription drugs. The price of Daraprim, a drug to treat toxoplasmosis, was increased by over five thousand percent. The increase has sparked people from both the AIDS and cancer organizations to reach out and attack the ethics of Chief Executive Officer, Martin Shkreli through social media. The increase in price may prevent hospitals from having treatment available for patients who need it. The practice of price gouging prescription drugs has now become an important political topic many candidates running for President of the United States in 2016 will be talking about. Significance of a Solution Recognizing that developing, manufacturing, and marketing pharmaceuticals is a very profitable business, the case of Turing Pharmaceutical’s purchase and marketing of the drug Daraprim spotlights a potentially serious issue with the way some companies “repackage” existing drugs to create higher profit margins. Daraprim (Pyrimethamine) was originally approved January 23, 1953 for the treatment of toxoplasmosis, an infection caused by a very common parasite (U.S. Food and Drug Administration, n.d.). Because most people never exhibit symptoms of this disease, sales of this drug were very small; and, no generic drug company ever bothered to duplicate the formula (Mayo Clinic, 2015). Seizing the opportunity to “corner the market” on......

The therapeutic theopylline level is 10 to 20 mcg/mL. The nurse should continue interventions and monitor oxygenation. 2. In discharge teaching, the nurse will emphasize to a patient receiving a beta-agonist bronchodilator the importance of reporting which side effect? Tachycardia A beta-agonist bronchodilator stimulates the beta receptors of the sympathetic nervous system, resulting in tachycardia, bronchodilation, hyperglycemia (if severe), and alertness. 3. What over-the-counter product will the nurse instruct the patient to avoid when taking montelukast (Singulair)? St. John’s wort St. John’s wort has been shown to decrease serum montelukast (Singulair) levels. The other substances do not interact with montelukast. 4. The patient is taking a nonselective adrenergic agonist bronchodilator and has a history of coronary artery disease. What is a priority nursing intervention? Monitoring patient for potential chest pain Nonselective adrenergic agonist bronchodilators stimulate beta1 receptors in the heart and beta2 receptors in the lungs. Stimulation of beta1 receptors can increase heart rate and contractility, increasing oxygen demand. This increased oxygen demand may lead to angina or myocardial ischemia in......

Department of Pharmaceutics and Pharmaceutical Microbiology, Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria *Author for Correspondence: olubunmibiala@yahoo.co.uk, +234 80 33532299 ABSTRACT This investigation aims at comparing locally developed starches from three grains; Maize (Zea mays), Rice (Oryza sativa) and Wheat (Triticum aestivum) grains. These grains are used mainly as foods and they contain high amount of carbohydrate. The presence of starch in these grains varies and thus their use as pharmaceutical excipients will vary to the degree of their starch functionality. The powders obtained were characterised for their particle size, particle size distribution. The organoleptic and physicochemical characterisation such as viscosity, hydration capacity, swelling capacity, moisture sorption capacity, pH, flow rate and porosity, Carr’s index and Hausner’s ratio were evaluated. The powders passed the identification and solubility tests as required by the BP. Rice starch showed the least Carr’s index, Hausner’s ratio, porosity, moisture sorption capacity and the greatest flow rate. Rice starch also showed the highest hydration capacity and......

Disease Process For the purpose of discussion of pathopharmacological features of a specific disease process, this paper will provide information related to heart disease in the form of coronary artery disease (CAD). A1. Pathophysiology Analysis Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the number one cause of mortality worldwide and becoming a steadily more investigated problem due to its prevalence. Much research is going into genetic, inflammatory mechanisms and neuro-hormonal factors related to CVD as scientific knowledge evolves regarding complexity of this broad pathophysiology. Atherosclerosis is the leading cause of the subsection of CVD called CAD. This is a form of arteriosclerosis where there is progressive thickening and hardening of the vessel walls of the two major coronary arteries and their branches. The thickening is an accumulation of lipid-laden macrophages inside the wall of the artery leading to the formation of lesions and plaque buildup (McCance, K. & Huether, S., 2014). When the plaque develops on the coronary artery walls the pumping ability of the heart becomes impaired as oxygen and nutrients needed for heart function may be partially or completely impeded. Complete occlusion of a coronary artery or one of its branches leads to a myocardial...
