“Discuss the potential of tailoring patient-specific therapeutic regimens within the NHS in the light of novel prodrugs, clinical inhibitors and immunotherapy”. Abstract Pharmacogenomics is the study of how an individual’s genetic inheritance may affect the body’s response to drug treatments. The Cytochrome P450 enzymes are at present one of the main lines of development with regards prodrugs, clinical inhibitors and immunotherapy. AQ4N is a novel prodrug, by Novacea, is in clinical trials at the moment. AQ4N is an alkylaminoanthraquinone N-oxide a pro-drug of a topisomerase II inhibitor that is reductively metabolised, by CYP3A4, in hypoxic cells to activate AQ4, this reduced pro-drug demonstrates a 1000 fold increase in cytotoxic
This would cause a breach of the contract because subsidized production of ViroBlax violated the payment terms of the contract between Gentura and CadMex.. Most importantly, CadMex would lose financially if the price of the drug were modified. Taking legal action to protect CadMex's business interests was an option, however, there would

Grade: A Marketing Plan: Phase II MKT421-Marketing May 2013 Marketing Plan: Phase II The second phase of Pfizer’s marketing plan consists of an overview of segmentation in the pharmaceuticals. Identifying segmentation criteria affecting the target market selection plays a considerable role in strategy planning. The next section includes a description of organizational buyers and consumers of this medication, and factors influencing marketing decisions and strategies. The final section analyzes two current competitors in the pharmaceutical industry and the competitive landscape for our medication. Segmentation Deciding on a target market for Glustasis requires specific segmentation criteria enabling the targeting market to establish; in this case the target markets consist of end-users and organizational buyers.
One such organization is the American Heart Association (AHA), which only supports adult stem cell research "based not on the relative merits of both types of research or the science and technology involved, but on concerns about..." how they would lose much support and funding if they pursued ESC research (Newton, 38). This lack of support for ESC research, not even taking into account its medical merits, demonstrates just how strongly people feel about the debate. Luckily, even though the national government might not fund ESC research, state entities and private agencies can make their own decisions and fund the research
This cost Pfizer $2.3 billion dollars. If Pfizer hadn’t off-labeled their drugs, a chance of making more of money would not have been presented (Torrey). Another way that the companies profit is by not taking the drug back into the lab to find out new uses for it since they have off-labeling to fall back on. Going back in the laboratory and doing further research costs a great deal of money that doesn’t need to be spent when you can say that the drug can be “used for a different treatment.” The practice of this is not right, playing guessing games with others lives so that you can reap the benefits of their recovery or their
