“Apple Watch is the ultimate companion for a healthy life and with watchOS 3, there’s now even more to love,” said Jeff Williams, Apple’s chief operating officer. “Favorite apps launch instantly and are simple to access, and the breakthrough new fitness and health features like the Breathe app make it feel like a whole new watch.”

UN-led conference to mobilize global action to avert ‘humanitarian catastrophe’ in Yemen

24 April 2017 – The United Nations together with the governments of Sweden and Switzerland will convene a one-day conference in Geneva, tomorrow, to draw global attention to the deepening humanitarian crisis in war-torn Yemen where millions are &#8220close to a breaking point.&#8221

According to the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), nearly 19 million people in Yemen are in need of urgent humanitarian or protection assistance, including some 10.3 million who need immediate assistance to save or sustain their lives.

&#8220Yemen is the largest humanitarian crisis in the world […] the time is now to come together to prevent an impending humanitarian catastrophe in the country&#8221 said the UN relief wing on its website, noting that the conflict in the country and its economic consequences is also driving the largest food security emergency in the world.

Senior UN officials, inducing Secretary-General António Guterres and the Organization’s Emergency Relief Coordinator Stephen O’Brien, together with top officials from Swedish and Swiss Governments, will be speaking the opening of the event tomorrow.

The event also features thematic briefings from UN agencies and humanitarian organizations on the ground.

The two-year long conflict in Yemen has already displaced more than 3.3 million people and resulted in a breakdown in public services, particularly in health care with less than half of the health centres are functional and medicine and equipment are limited.

Access to safe water also remains a challenge and there is a lack of proper sanitation, increasing the risk of communicable diseases.

Yemen is also the most food insecure country in the world and millions are also at the risk of a ‘man-made’ famine.

Over 17 million people are currently food insecure, of whom 6.8 million are severely food insecure and require immediate food assistance. Of particular concern is the condition of nearly two million children suffering from acute malnutrition.

In February this year, OCHA together with partners launched a $2.1 billion appeal for its 2017 humanitarian response plan for the country. The money is crucial to fund food, nutrition, health and lifesaving assistance programmes.

However, only 15 per cent has been received, representing a massive $1.8 billion funding gap.

Surgical Sutures Industry Key Players Profile and Market Analysis to 2024

Surgical sutures are sterile medical devices, also known as stiches, used for stitching of cuts and incisions made after surgery. Surgical sutures application involves use of suture needle with different sizes. Based on the need and indication of a patient, surgical sutures are used by doctors especially surgeons, physicians, pediatric/neonatal, dentists, registered nurses, and paramedical staffs. Cardiac surgery, neurosurgery, vascular surgery, oncosurgery, orthopedic surgery, urosurgery, ENT (Ear, Nose & Throat) surgery, organ transplant cases, etc. are the major applications of surgical sutures. Surgical sutures not only enhance wound healing process, but are also efficient in reducing surgical site infections. Ideal sutures have high tensile strength and knot security, are resistant to infection, and possess high elasticity and plasticity to withstand the complications of wound swelling.

Leading players in the global surgical sutures market are Johnson & Johnson (Ethicon), B. Braun Melsungen AG, Medtronic, Sutures India Pvt. Ltd., DemeTECH Corporation, WL Gore & Associated, and Endoevolution, LLC. Ethicon, Inc. is the leading brand for surgical sutures globally and accounts for the largest market share. B. Braun Melsungen AG dominates the surgical sutures market in Europe. Sutures India Pvt. Ltd. Is expected to record highest growth rate in Asia Pacific in the near future as a result of increased investment by market players.

Increasing prevalence of chronic diseases especially cardiac diseases and cancer among the geriatric population across the globe, increasing number of bariatric, C-section & orthopedic surgeries, increasing number of road accidents, and demand for early wound healing and shorter hospital stay are the key drivers of the global surgical sutures market. Need and development of minimally invasive procedures leading to minimizing surgical site infection (SSI) and higher cost of coated sutures are the factors restraining the global surgical sutures market.

In terms of region, the global surgical sutures market has been segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East & Africa, and Latin America. North America holds the major share of the global sutures surgical market, followed by Europe. Cardiac disease is the leading cause of death and cancer is the second leading cause of death in the U.S. This indicates that there is increasing number of cardiac surgeries and cancer surgeries. Asia Pacific is projected to witness higher growth rate in the next few years primarily because of improving health care infrastructure, increasing number of surgeries, and growth of the health care sector.

Surgical sutures are broadly segmented into two categories: absorbable and non-absorbable. These are sub-divided into natural and synthetic sutures, coated & non-coated, and monofilament and multifilament. Absorbable sutures dissolve in the tissue over a period as part of metabolism. Non-absorbable sutures need to be removed manually after wound healing. Based on material, surgical sutures are further classified into natural material and synthetic material. Natural sutures are made from catgut, silk, cotton, and natural steel. Synthetic sutures are made from polyglycolic acid, polylactic acid, polyvinyleidene fluoride (PVDF), monocryl, polydioxanone, polyester, and polypropylene. Increasing demand for minimum surgical site infection (SSI) has led to development of drug coated sutures. These sutures are coated with antimicrobial agents on the surface to prevent microbial colony formation at the site of insertion. Monofilaments are single stranded sutures, while in multifilament sutures multiple fibers are woven together. Monofilaments are less traumatic to patients and are less likely to be associated with infection. Multifilament sutures do not slip and have improved strength as these are braided with number of filaments.

Turn In Unused Medications April 29, 2017: Attorney General Denn, Sens. Carper And Coons, DEA, DHSS And Walgreens Announce Drug Take-Back Day

Delaware State Government's picture

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

Date Posted: Monday, April 24th, 2017
Categories: 

WILMINGTON – With hundreds of lives being lost to drug overdoses each year, Delaware will hold a Drug Take-Back Day on Saturday, April 29, 2017 to help reduce the risk of prescription medications being diverted for misuse. Delawareans can discard their expired or unused medications at locations statewide between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. Saturday.

Organized by the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) and the Department of Health and Social Service (DHSS), the twice-a-year event has resulted in more than 65,000 pounds of medication being collected in 13 events.

Properly discarding unused medications protects groundwater, reduces the risk of addiction, keeps prescription medications out of the hands of people who may abuse them, and helps prevent drug overdoses.

We must view addiction as the chronic disease it is. We can all improve the safety of our homes and communities by properly disposing of unused medicines,” said DHSS Secretary Dr. Kara Odom Walker. “National studies show that almost two-thirds of people who misuse prescription drugs get them from friends and family, including by raiding medicine cabinets, purses, and drawers.”

The April 29, 2017 Drug Take-Back Day announcement was held in the Walgreens pharmacy in the Fairfax Shopping Center near Wilmington. Dr. Walker praised Walgreens for being the first private Delaware retailer to install safe medicine disposal boxes. Six of Delaware’s 21 permanent medicine drop-off locations are in Walgreens pharmacies. The remaining 15 permanent boxes are located in local law enforcement agencies.

“Delaware – and the nation’s – problem with prescription drug abuse has hit nearly every home and family,” said U.S. Sen. Tom Carper. “The Prescription Drug Take-Back program is just one tool in our tool box to get these drugs out of the wrong hands. It’s easier than ever to get rid of your unwanted prescriptions instead of letting them get into the wrong hands, or throwing them away and polluting our land and water supply. We will continue to fight this problem and will only be successful by working with all levels of government, and partnering with the private and nonprofit sector to attack this problem on all fronts.”

“By making safe medication disposal kiosks available in select Delaware stores, as we have done in other states over the last year, Walgreens is taking an important first step to reduce the misuse of medications throughout the country and curb the rise in overdose deaths,” said Jessica Puckett Beasley, Walgreens regional healthcare director in Delaware. “Everyone has a role to play in minimizing prescription drug abuse, and we are committed to being part of a comprehensive solution to reverse this epidemic.”

“I want to applaud Walgreens, the DEA, Delaware Health and Social Services, and everyone working together to do their part to stop the spread of prescription medications getting into the wrong hands,” said U.S. Sen. Chris Coons. “It takes a group effort; everyone doing their part to stop the drug abuse that’s taking hold in our communities. I encourage everyone to take a look at their medicine cabinets, and if you’re not using those prescriptions, participate in the Drug Take-Back Day or dispose of their medications in one of the 21 locations permanent drop boxes statewide.”

In 2016, 308 people died in Delaware from drug overdoses compared to 228 in 2015 and 222 in 2014. Up to 80 percent of Delaware’s drug overdoses may involve one or more prescription medications.

“We know that prescription drugs are often a gateway to illegal drugs,” said Delaware Attorney General Matt Denn. “Ensuring that prescription drugs do not end up in the wrong hands is therefore an important part of our effort to address Delaware’s opioid epidemic. Prevention, treatment, and law enforcement are all critical parts of this fight.”

“Public Health is grateful for all the Drug Take-Back Day participating organizations, the DEA, and the law enforcement agencies and Walgreens which offer the permanent drop boxes,” said Division of Public Health Director Dr. Karyl Rattay. “We must also increase awareness about alternatives to opioid medications to reduce pain and educate medical providers on the new Delaware prescribing rules.”

New regulations for the safe prescribing of opiates, promulgated by the Delaware Department of State’s Division of Professional Regulation, became effective April 1, 2017. They establish standards for prescribing opiates safely for acute episodes and for chronic, long term pain management.

Manifolds are pipeline systems with several openings. Manifolds are specially fabricated structures wherein two or more cylinders are connected to a single pipeline to increase the availability of gas at the source. Medical manifolds offer the function of reducing the pressure from cylinders with high pressure to the required pressure, which is feasible to use in the hospital pipeline. In hospitals, medical gases are largely used to provide long-term support to patients in intensive care units (ICUs). Medical air is used in hospitals in large quantities and hence, it is feasible to produce it on site, rather than storing it in gas cylinders. Medical gas supply in a hospital needs to fulfill the stringent requirements of the installation standards and safety of all patients in the hospital. The need for medical manifolds primarily arises from strict rules and requirements for the medical gas supply systems. For instance, in July 2012, the U.S. Congress passed a bill putting into effect the Food & Drug Safety & Innovation Act. This act provides selected gases as approved medications for common medical gas mixtures; provides manufacturers with the protection of their intellectual property rights for new products; and establishes a certification process for medical gas production. These factors serve as a driver for the market.

Based on the region, the global fermented ingredients market has been segmented into: North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa. North America accounts for a significant share of the global market for medical manifolds, owing to presence of industry-friendly organizations such as CGA and GAWDA. These associations consist of industry experts working in reputed organizations. The members of these associations work continuously to make value additions to the market by understanding the market trends and implementing the policies that eventually work out in favour of the market. Europe is considered to be the second largest market for medical manifolds, due to enhanced health care processes and growing health concerns in the region. Moreover, rising geriatric population with the need for hospitalization augments the market in the region. Major factors that would drive the market in Asia Pacific include rapid development of health care infrastructure and presence of large population in the region. High prevalence of pulmonary diseases and emergency medical conditions provides countries such as India and China with multiple untapped opportunities. Latin American countries such as Mexico and Brazil are expected to have considerable growth potential for the medical manifolds market due to evolving health care infrastructure, and increasing medical expenditure.

Browse Global Strategic Business Report: www.transparencymarketresearch.com/medical-manifolds-mark…

Increasing awareness regarding the medical gas safety amongst manufacturers and consumers is a major factor that drives the global medical manifolds market. Growth of the health care infrastructure has led to rise in the number of hospitals, which acts as a driver for the global medical manifolds market. In addition, the establishment of industry-friendly associations such as Medical Gas Association (MGA), Compressed Gas Association (CGA), and Gases & Welding Distributors Association (GAWDA) is fueling the market. Constant efforts made by the members of CGA and GAWDA have rendered the actualization of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration Safety and Innovation Act. These associations help in chalking out strategies that would ultimately help the market thrive and flourish. Therefore, establishment of such associations acts as a driver for the market.

The global medical manifolds market has been segmented by product type and geography. In terms of product, the medical manifolds market has been categorized into simplex manifold systems, cradle pack manifolds, dual manifold systems, semi-automatic manifold systems, automatic manifold systems, digital automatic manifold systems, and others.

Research and Markets – Japanese Pharmaceutical Firms Sales Practices Report

DUBLIN, April 24, 2017 /PRNewswire/ —

Research and Markets has announced the addition of the „Japanese Sales Practices at Pharmaceutical Firms ver2016” report to their offering.

This report discusses about the general sales practices at pharmaceutical firms in Japan. The readers will understand about the current sales activities, regulations, issues, and suggested methodologies.

The number of MR in Japan in 2015 was 64,135. At all type of companies; domestic pharmaceutical companies, foreign companies, and Contract Sales Organizations (CSO), the number of MR had been increasing until 2013, but it turned to decrease from 2014.

Among developed nations, Japan follows the United States in terms of number of MR. However, at the same time, when we look at the number of physicians per number of MR, the United States has approximately thirteen (physicians/MR), while Japan has below five, so we see considerable gap and an outstanding issue in terms of productivi-ty.

While people see less productivity in sales activities, the number of MR still remain quite large. The unique MR skillset and the Japanese old employment system, which emphasized long-term employment, created a situation that renders both internal transfer and dismissal difficult. Also, the pharmaceutical industry has enjoyed considerably high profits, meaning that even bearing these fixed labor costs in mind, there was no sense of urgency to firms’ economic viability.

However, at the same time, the MR climate is steadily changing. The use of contract MR is becoming more widespread. New guidelines are calling for greater transparency. The approach of M3, Inc., and others like it, of providing medical information online is rapidly gaining ground. Amidst this, the true presence of physical MR is increasingly being called into question.
In the short term, there are unlikely to be major changes to the current personnel system. In the medium term, as contract MR increase and the Internet is further used for the provision of medical information, there will likely be changes to MR employment and organizational adjustments to follow.

For foreign firms entering in Japanese market, this may be an opportunity to enter a market that offers a great degree of flexibility and provide a new business model. Firms should leverage outsourcing in various fields not only in manufacturing and clinical de-velopment, but also in sales and marketing, keeping a slim organization inhouse.

Anesthesia Endotracheal Tubes Market By Technological Development, Applications and Forecast 2024

Anesthesia endotracheal tube is a tube implanted in trachea to administer anesthesia, maintain the airway passage of lungs, prevent aspiration into the lungs, and allow mechanical ventilation. It also establishes the aspiration of secretions and anticipation of the pathway of extraneous material into the tracheobronchial tree. The endotracheal tube is of two types: orotracheal tube and nasotracheal tube. The orotracheal tube is rooted through the mouth, while the nasotracheal tube is rooted through the nose into the trachea. Both are used for anesthesia management.

Download The Full Brochure of Report :

www.transparencymarketresearch.com/sample/sample.php?flag…

Some players operating in the global anesthesia endotracheal tubes market are Medline Industries, Medtronic, C. R. Bard, ConvaTec, GE Healthcare, Smiths Medical, KindWell Medical, ROYAX, Fuji Systems, Teleflex, Neurovision Medical, and Intersurgical.

With the advancement of health care facilities and modern technologies, surgery of vital organs such as lungs has become easy. Anesthesia endotracheal tubes make it easy for the surgeons to sedate the patient and perform the surgical procedure. Also, these tubes are accepted and used by the patients of all age groups with breathing or lung problems. This is a major factor driving the market for anesthesia endotracheal tubes. Growing industrialization leading to rise in air pollution and habits such as smoking are responsible for increasing incidence of respiratory diseases. This can be considered as a factor propelling the anesthesia endotracheal tubes market. Rising incidence of other respiratory diseases, lung diseases, and breathing disorders also drives the market.

. Introduction of advanced technology in the medical field, which enables easy performing of critical surgeries and usage of high-quality consumables in the field are the recent trends in the global anesthesia endotracheal tubes market. However, availability of an increased number of alternative disposable devices and upcoming better options may act as a barrier for the anesthesia endotracheal tubes market. The anesthesia endotracheal tubes market has been segregated into organized and unorganized as well as global and regional players. The unorganized local market in developing countries may give a tough competition to the global players by maintaining high quality standards at reasonable pricing. The dealers in the developed market are targeting back with product innovations.

Browse Global Strategic Business Report: www.transparencymarketresearch.com/anesthesia-endotrachea…

Based on the product type, the global anesthesia endotracheal tubes market can be segmented into: orotracheal tubes and nasotracheal tubes. Orotracheal tubes are implanted in the patient’s trachea through the mouth. Nasotracheal tubes are implanted in the trachea through the nose. These tubes are employed in the cases wherein the patient’s mouth needs to be operated.

Based on the end-user, the anesthesia endotracheal tubes market can be segmented into: hospitals & clinics and ambulatory surgical centers (ASCs).

High demand for home-based therapy and modernization in video laryngoscopes also drive the global anesthesia endotracheal tubes market. However, complications in the anesthesia delivery system, availability of a small number of skilled medical practitioners to perform critical surgeries with perfection, and growing preference to laryngeal masks over anesthesia endotracheal tubes are likely be major factors restraining the growth of the market during the forecast period.

Based on the geographical region, the anesthesia endotracheal tubes market can be segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa. North America is a major market for anesthesia endotracheal tubes, due to respiratory disorder-prone lifestyle of people in the region and a large number of elderly population. Asia Pacific is an expanding market due to increase in the incidence of respiratory diseases in the region.

SBA Administrator to Kick Off National SBIR Conference

WASHINGTON – U.S. Small Business  Administrator Linda McMahon will kick off the 2017 National SBIR Conference on May 16 at the Gaylord Hotel and Conference Center in Washington, D.C.  In her keynote address, Administrator McMahon will highlight the vital role America’s small businesses play in strengthening the economy and driving innovation.
 
“It’s our mission at the SBA to empower small business owners and offer them the opportunity to compete and succeed,” Administrator McMahon said. “The Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) programs open opportunities in STEM fields to all entrepreneurs. These are incredible resources for enabling economic opportunity and revitalizing the spirt of entrepreneurship in America. Our small business owners drive innovation each and every day, and the SBA is committed to lifting them up and propelling them forward.”
 
The Small Business Innovation Research and Small Business Technology Transfer programs are the nation’s largest source of early stage/high risk R&D funding for small businesses. The SBIR/STTR programs fuel thousands of innovative high-growth companies through non-dilutive funding totaling almost $2.5 billion dollars a year.
 
The highly competitive SBIR/STTR programs together account for more than 150,000 awards totaling approximately $40 billion. These awards have helped U.S. innovators advance new technologies that help make the U.S. more globally competitive. The SBIR/STTR programs have provided seed funding to companies including Qualcomm, iRobot, Symantec and Genzyme.
 
Conference attendees will learn how to compete for funding and participate in these two programs, which encourage small businesses to access Federal Research/Research and Development (R/R&D) and to commercialize technological innovations.
 
The National SBIR Conference is co-located with the National Innovation Summit, which draws 3,000+ attendees representing small businesses, entrepreneurs, and research institutions from across the globe. The National SBIR/STTR Conference offers a platform for small businesses and research institutions to interact with government program managers and industry leaders to learn how to be successful in the SBIR and STTR programs.

Some other major growth drivers of the market are gradual awareness about the dangers posed by cholesterol and education about the importance of these tests, rising incidence of cardiovascular diseases, stroke, and other heart diseases, growing healthcare expenditure, government initiatives, increasing geriatric population, and technological advancements in the area of cholesterol lab testing services. Low fruit and vegetable intake, unhealthy eating habits such as preference for convenience foods and fast foods, and lack of physical inactivity have also been driving the growth of this market.

As the deposits of cholesterol layer up the inner lining of arteries, atherosclerosis is developed. Obesity is another condition related to high cholesterol levels. As the number of such cholesterol-induced diseases increases, the need for these tests will also increase, thereby expanding the market for global cholesterol lab testing services.

On the contrary, the presence of home or self-testing kits might hinder growth, apart from the restriction imposed by the introduction of non-invasive cholesterol testing procedures.
