GSK invest 10 million euros at their facility in Sligo, Ireland

Pharmatimes have reported that GlaxoSmithKline has decided to keep open its facility in Sligo Ireland and will instead invest 10 million euros into the plant.

GSK acquired the facility in Sligo when GSK bought the dermatology specialist Stiefel Laboratories for up to $3.6 billion in 2009.

There will be some jobs cuts at the plant over the next two years, which currently employs 180 people, with a “gradual” reduction to 120. However, GlaxoSmthKline estimated there would be an additional 50 jobs added in 2014 as the plant improved skills and capacity.

UK stem cell pioneer shares Nobel Prize in Medicine

The BBC has reported that two pioneers of stem cell research have shared the Nobel prize for medicine and/ or physiology

John Gurdon from the UK and Shinya Yamanaka from Japan have been jointly awarded the prize for their work in transforming specialised cells into stem cells, which can become any other type of cell in the body. It is hoped the techniques discovered will revolutionise medicine by using a sample of a person’s skin to create stem cells.

Prof Anthony Hollander, the head of cellular and molecular medicine at the University of Bristol, said: “This joint Nobel Prize traces and celebrates the wonderful scientific journey from John Gurdon’s pioneering early work to the sensational discovery of somatic cell reprogramming by Shinya Yamanaka. It’s fantastic news for stem cell research.”

The prize was awarded this morning at the Karolinska Institute in Sweden, and is the most coveted award in medical science. The Nobel committee said these winners  had “revolutionised” science

Grapefruit juice provides anti-cancer benefits

As reported by WorldPharmaNews, results of a clinical trial have showed that a glass a day of grapefruit juice lets patients derive the same benefits from an anti-cancer drug as they would get from more than three times as much of the drug by itself.

Researchers at the University of Chicago Medicine study the effects that foods can have on the uptake and elimination of drugs used for cancer treatment.

In the study, they found that eight ounces a day of grapefruit juice can slow the body’s metabolism of a drug called sirolimus, which has been approved for transplant patients but may also help many people with cancer.

Patients who drank eight ounces a day of grapefruit juice increased their sirolimus levels by 350 percent. A drug called ketoconazole that also slows drug metabolism increased sirolimus levels by 500 percent.

The hope is that this combination could help patients avoid side effects associated with high doses of the drug and reduce the cost of the medication.

Olympic Team GB work with scientists on gene tests for injuries

As reported by the BBC, Scientists behind Olympic Team GB are working on genetic tests to understand why some athletes are prone to injury Scientists at the Institute for Human Health and Performance at University College London are currently researching how and why tendon injuries and stress fractures occur as they are common in elite athletes University College London’s Prof Hugh Montgomery says they have found a gene they think strongly influences the risk of stress fracture…….If we understood that genetic component we would have a much better understanding of the patho-physiology – the disease processes that let that happen” The study has been working with the English Institute of Sport (EIS), which aims to apply the latest in sports science and medicine for the benefit of Britain’s Olympic and Paralympic athletes. EIS’s Director of Sport Science, Dr Ken van Someren said “If we can identify some particular genes that are associated with a higher risk of injury in certain individuals, and we think we’re close, we can tailor the training, conditioning and preparation that we put those individuals through.”

GSK & Theravance receive positive data for pill

PharmaTimes have reported that GlaxoSmithKline and Theravance have reported positive data from four Phase III trials assessing a combination therapy for maintenance treatment of COPD, making the once-daily pill closer to a regulatory filing.

The clinical trials involved more than 4,000 patients, including two 24-week efficacy trials comparing a combination of the long-acting muscarinic antagonist (LAMA) umeclidinium bromide and the long-acting beta-agonist (LABA) vilanterol. The date showed statistically significant improvements when compared with placebo and the individual parts in both trials, which tested difference doses.

Darrell Baker, SVP Respiratory Portfolio Optimisation Leader at GSK said “We are very encouraged by the results of these initial studies for our LAMA/LABA, an important cornerstone of our broad respiratory development portfolio…. These studies, together with our earlier dose-ranging work, give us confidence that this is a once-daily medicine with the potential to benefit many patients with COPD.

Research says that men who drink 7 cups of tea a day are 50% more likely to develop prostate cancer

The Telegraph reported that a research study at Glasgow University  has said that men who drink a lot of tea a day are 50 per cent more likely to develop prostate cancer

Glasgow University found that people who drink more than seven cups of tea are at a much higher risk of getting the disease than those who consume three cups or fewer.

The warning comes after scientists at the University of Glasgow tracked the health of more than 6,000 men for four decades.  The participients were aged between  21 and 75 were asked to complete a questionnaire about their usual consumption of tea, coffee and alcohol as well as their smoking habits and general health, and had to attend a screening examination.

Dr Kate Holmes, head of research at The Prostate Cancer Charity, said: ‘Whilst it does appear that those who drank seven or more cups of tea each day had an increased risk of developing prostate cancer, this did not take into consideration family history or any other dietary elements other than tea, coffee and alcohol intake……It is therefore unclear as to whether there were other factors in play which may have had a greater impact on risk.
