BRUSSELS, 5-Sep-2023 — /EPR HEALTHCARE NEWS/ — The Lancet Regional Health – Europe journal has published a scientific paper on 7 August 2023 authored by a distinguished team of international researchers as part of their work in the IDAlert project. Titled “Decision-Support Tools to Build Climate Resilience Against Emerging Infectious Diseases in Europe and Beyond“, this paper introduces a transformative approach to tackle the emergence and transmission of climate-sensitive infectious diseases in Europe, informing cross-sectoral policy while improving the long-term climate resilience of health systems to infectious disease risks.

Climate change is one of several drivers of recurrent outbreaks and geographical range expansion of infectious diseases in Europe. This paper proposes a collaborative approach to develop policy-relevant indicators and decision-support tools. These tools are designed to comprehensively track and anticipate climate-induced disease risks across various domains, including environmental hazard, exposure patterns, and vulnerability factors. With a keen focus on the interconnectedness of animals, humans, and the environment, the framework promises a holistic perspective to address this multifaceted challenge.

The lead author and IDAlert project coordinator Joacim Rocklöv highlighted, “Our decision-support tools offer a multi-dimensional perspective that transcends traditional silos. By examining the nexus of animals, humans, and the environment, we’re unlocking a more comprehensive understanding of disease dynamics a pre-requisite for more timely and effective outbreak preparedness.”

The heart of this novel framework lies in the co-production of early warning and response systems with stakeholders and end-users, as well as tailored tools to assess the costs and benefits associated with climate adaptation and mitigation strategies across diverse sectors. By fostering greater resilience within regional and local health systems, the framework aims to strengthen Europe’s capacity to respond to health crises, even in the face of changing environmental conditions.

As part of its approach, the IDAlert project will integrate multi-level engagement, innovative methodologies, and novel data streams, and tap into locally generated intelligence and empirical insights through case studies. This strategy empowers experts to quantify the effects of climate-induced disease threats in areas undergoing rapid urban transformation and contending with heterogeneous health risks. The ultimate aspiration is to bridge the gap between knowledge and action, delivering an unparalleled integrated One Health—Climate Risk framework that will empower policymakers, healthcare professionals, and communities to mitigate risks and bolster resilience.

A British Girl Creates a Special Sign for Women’s Periods to Say “No” to Period Shaming

NEW YORK, 2022-Nov-21 — /EPR HEALTHCARE NEWS/ — In recent years, “menstrual shame” has become one of the most searched topics on the Internet, which caused heated discussion among netizens. Some women said they had never felt ashamed of menstruation and they even could talk about it openly. Some others said they felt period-shame when they were young; however, this feeling gradually disappeared as they grew older…

It is believed that most girls feel embarrassed or even ashamed to talk about periods when they are young. They hesitate to tell others when they feel sick during the periods; they even feel uncomfortable buying sanitary essentials from shops and try to “cover up” the embarrassment with black plastic bags.

Periods shouldn’t be taboo!

Sophia McKinstry, a girl from a university in UK, has exquisitely made a “Special Sign for Women’s Periods” to call on people to break the taboo around menstruation, remove the shame and stigma, and urge the society to face women’s physiological periods squarely. The overall outline of the Special Sign for Women’s Periods is like a drop of blood. The upper part is mainly composed of rosebuds, which shows a curling-up female who is lying on her side. The hollow part showing a few bat totem elements combines with the red shadow below to express that the woman is on her period.

When talking about the chance for the creation of the Special Sign, Sophia McKinstry said that she initially just wanted to help girls with period discomfort by designing a special sign, for example, when others see a girl wearing this sign, they will know that she is on her period and may feel tired and uncomfortable. In some cases, she probably needs a little care and understanding like a hot drink for her when eating meals together or avoiding persuading her to drink wine. She saw a piece of news that Melinda Gates liked the Chinese swimmer Fu Yuanhui for her bravely smashing period taboo during the Rio Olympics and noticed various hot discussions triggered by the Indian film Padman. After that, she gradually realized that period shame is a common phenomenon in many countries. Menstruation is perceived as unclean or shameful by girls and other people, which can be seen in all aspects of our lives. Therefore, she began to pay more attention to the topic of menstrual shame.

Sophia McKinstry stated that she wanted to make people understand through her own way that menstruation is a normal and healthy part of life for women and the traditional idea that periods are dirty should be bravely broken. Female periods should be treated equally as other physical phenomena in the society and they should not be taboo. For this purpose, she “encourages people to abandon the traditional secular ideas such as ‘menstrual taboo’ and ‘ menstrual shame’”, and integrate “may every girl does not feel embarrassed or ashamed any more when talking about menstruation” as well as other concepts and appeals into the design concept of the Special Sign.

The Special Sign for Women’s Periods has become globally accepted to mark women’s menstruation and periods. It encourages women to break the taboo of “menstrual shame”, calls on the society to stop hating “menstruation”, and represents care and understanding for women on periods.

The small sign contains infinite power. We believe that it will promote a great spirit, end the long-standing discrimination, and arouse people’s courage to challenge the secular ideas and break taboos, just like the Olympic Rings and Red Ribbons.

European public-private project to advance precision psychiatry by introducing biology into clinical routine

PARIS AND MONTPELLIER, 30-Mar-2022 — /EPR HEALTHCARE NEWS/ — ALCEDIAG announces the launch of the EDIT-B Consortium, supported by the European Institute of Innovation and Technology for Health (EIT Health). This newly formed European public-private partnership aims at advancing precision psychiatry by introducing biology into clinical routine.

Around 300M people in the world are affected by depression. Studies show that up to 40% of them may be misdiagnosed and potentially bipolar. As a result, diagnosis is often delayed by an average of 7.5 years, worsening patients’ mental and physical conditions as well as their loved ones’ quality of life.

The EDIT-B Consortium aims to solve this diagnostic challenge by using specific RNA editing based biomarkers and artificial intelligence to validate and commercialize an accurate, reliable, and quick blood test to diagnose bipolar disorder.

The Consortium brings together prominent members from across Europe who will be working over the next three years to achieve this goal: Alcediag, Alcen, Capital Region of Denmark, Fundació Clinic per la Recerca Biomèdica, Fundació Sant Joan de Déu, GHU Paris Psychiatrie & Neurosciences, Hospital Clínic de Barcelona, Parc Sanitari Sant Joan de Déu, ProductLife Group and Synlab. With a total budget of € 5.2 million, EDIT-B is co-funded by the EIT Health (€ 2.5M) and the partners.

“This project will accurately separate bipolar disorder from unipolar disorder. This distinction is extremely important clinically, because the treatments are different. EDIT-B Consortium gathers all relevant expertise and as the principal investigator in the clinical trial, I hope we will be able to validate a test that will improve the lives of many people living with bipolar disorder”, says Prof. Eduard Vieta from the Hospital Clínic de Barcelona.

SYNLAB is the first diagnostic service provider in Europe, present in 36 countries in 4 continents and committed to developing high value solutions for patients  focusing on medical excellence and customer centricity.

Maurizio Ferrari, SYNLAB Italy Chief Medical Officer says: “innovation in healthcare is a key pillar for the customer centricity and  we are very proud to be part of this European research project that really may help patients with psychiatric disorders”.

“I am proud to see that the EDIT-B consortium led by our partner Alcediag – a subsidiary of Alcen – will tackle the challenge of improving the diagnosis of bipolar disorder. In doing so, they support EIT Health main mission which is to help citizens live healthier and longer lives and at the same time put the spotlight on mental health which is key to the proper care management and wellbeing of our communities”, adds Jean Marc Bourez, interim CEO of EIT Health.

“On this World Bipolar Day, Alcediag team is happy to announce its contribution to solving the bipolar disorder diagnostic issue.  We are proud and grateful to our partners and the EIT Health for this opportunity to advance science while having a positive impact on people’s lives”, said Alexandra Prieux, CEO of Alcediag.

Silencil Reviews: A Scam Supplement Or Does It Really Treat Tinnitus – Critical Silencil Review

NEW YORK, 2022-Mar-24 — /EPR HEALTHCARE NEWS/ — It is no news that tinnitus has been considered an incurable health condition ever since it was discovered. Hence, whereas doctors and clinicians usually prescribe antidepressants or anxiety-relieving medications to assist reduce the internal noise, there are no medications specifically designed to help put an end to it. But can Silencil really cure tinnitus? A YES OR A NO!

The fact that no one believes tinnitus has a cure stems from the story that some people have attempted numerous approaches in an attempt to get rid of their ringing in the ears without success. Nonetheless, recent advancements in medical science are taking us one step closer to finding a cure – brain inflammation as the cause of tinnitus. Fortunately, the Silencil team has rallied around this cause (brain inflammation), and they are determined to see it through.

MUST SEE: VISIT THE OFFICIAL WEBSITE TODAY FOR YOUR OWN SUPPLEMENT
According to the manufacturer, Silencil was designed to be almost your one and only true protection against tinnitus of all forms. It is a new nutritional supplement that is intended to reduce ringing in the ears as well as any associated symptoms that may occur as a result of the condition by reducing brain inflammation. Silencil is believed to really solve tinnitus by targeting the underlying problem. This Silencil Review is meant to explain everything about this supplement. Real-world customers and doctors have endorsed it as being tested, dependable, approved, effective, potent, legitimate and reliable.

What Is Silencil?
Silencil is a natural tinnitus supplement made up of 28 clinically approved plant extracts and vitamins that have been shown to be effective in treating tinnitus by reducing brain inflammation. It improves overall brain function, as well as strengthening the immune system and repairing any damage that has occurred, thereby curing tinnitus.

Silencil is a brain-health supplement / vitamin for tinnitus which works to restore your brain and body’s normal function, ultimately treating you of the condition. Simultaneously providing users with a natural blend of plant and vitamin extracts that work on nerve cells and brain tissue, Silencil’s primary purpose is to improve the user’s ability to hear in all ramifications. While Silencil does assist to decrease the ringing in the ears, it does so primarily through the reduction of inflammation and the re-establishment of neural connections inside the brain.

Truly, Silencil should not be seen as a miracle solution for curing tinnitus, and thus, it should not be expected to produce results overnight. It is rather a dietary supplement which is vested with totally lowering the symptoms of tinnitus as a whole. It accomplishes relief to tinnitus sufferers by identifying and resolving the fundamental root of the problem known as brain inflammation. This is only possible if you have adhered to the manufacturer’s prescription and procedure.

According to general consensus, tinnitus is caused by an issue with one’s hearing. However, the inventor of Silencil believes that electrical misfires (inflammation) in the brain are responsible for a considerable percentage of the ringing in one’s ears and the Silencil pills are designed to address it as effectively as possible.

Is Silencil a legitimate treatment for tinnitus, or does it come with potentially serious side effects and allergies? Of course, this Silencil pill addresses and heals brain inflammation, which is the underlying cause of tinnitus in most cases. It is 100 percent legitimate, and the success stories that have been shared are genuine. Because the components in Silencil have all been approved by the FDA and professionally evaluated, there are no known negative side effects from using it. When the supplement is taken as directed, the pills are delivered directly to the brain, where they work to repair the damaged chain, alleviating the continual ringing sound in the ear.

This natural supplement is now widely acknowledged as one of the most effective natural remedies available for the treatment of tinnitus on a global scale. Millions of real clients all over the world have benefited from this superior supplement and have stated that the ringing or buzzing in their ears has been eliminated completely.

Mental health is a major concern globally and with the rising prevalence of different types of such disorders in recent years, as well as with the growing awareness for these diseases by governmental bodies, the disease has been included in the list of 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the United Nations. Moreover, the situation for the disease has also gained massive focus, especially to treat the elderly population. This can be attributed primarily to the increasing elderly population count over the past few years, and the growing awareness for mental health and well-being amongst these age groups. In the other statistics by the WHO, the proportion of the population of age 60 years and over around the world is expected to double from 12% to 22% between 2015 and 2050. The statistics further stated that over 20% of these adults suffered from a mental or neurological disorder, and 6.6% of all disabilities amongst these population groups accounted for such disorders. Additionally, around 5% and 7% of these populations had been affected with dementia and depression respectively, which are the two most common mental and neurological disorders.

The global mental health software and devices market generated a revenue of USD 3883.94 Million in the year 2020 and is further expected to grow with a CAGR of 13.28% during the forecast period and touch a value of USD 13367.12 Million by the end of 2030. The growth of the market can primarily be attributed to the growing need for advanced patient monitoring and patient management applications amongst healthcare service providers for those treating mental disorders, backed by the surge in the number of mental health patients worldwide. Besides this, the increasing number of these patients is expected to drive the need for advanced devices which can help for early diagnosis and treatment, therefore contributing to the market growth in the coming years. For instance, the prevalence of dementia, which is known for deteriorating the memory, thinking, behavior, and the ability of the patients to perform everyday activities, is expected to increase to 82 Million by 2030, and further touch 152 Million by 2050, according to the statistics by the WHO. On the other hand, according to the statistics by United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), in the year 2019, between the ages 10 and 14, 34,840,000 female adolescents and 44,647,000 male adolescents suffered from mental disorders. Moreover, between the ages 15 and 19, 41,712,000 female adolescents and 44,563,000 male adolescents had suffered from the same disorder. The surge in these cases is expected to boost the demand for diagnostic devices for the treatment of the disorder, and in turn, drive the market growth.

EU Patients as Partners in Medicines Development conference to be held virtually on Jan 24-25, 2022

(PRESS RELEASE) New York, NY, United States, 5-Jan-2021 — /EPR HEALTHCARE NEWS/ — The Conference Forum announced the launch of the 6th annual EU Patients as Partners in Medicines Development conference to take place virtually on January 24-25th, 2022 GMT time.

​​This annual event, the first of its kind in Europe, will feature successful collaborations between patients and pharma where patient input directly impacted aspects of how a pharmaceutical company either designed or conducted a clinical trial.

Of the 20 sessions, half include a patient or patient advocate. This two-day program will demonstrate how patient-led research can improve the way pharma conducts clinical trials.

Examples include UCB developing new assessment tools to measure the effectiveness of novel treatments for Parkinson’s disease, changes in the design and implementation of an MS trial for greater patient engagement, and the development of a new toolkit to change the way patients are compensated for their contributions in clinical research.

“Patients have become more empowered,” says co-chair Michaela Dinboeck, Head, Center of Excellence for Patient Engagement at Novartis. “So patient engagement must be integrated into the DNA of how medicines are developed, approved, and used. Patients as Partners Europe will provide Pharma with valuable insights on how to achieve this.”

Participating pharma companies include Novartis, Pfizer, Merck KGaA, EMD Serono, Janssen, Johnson & Johnson, GSK, Ipsen, UCB, Takeda, AbbVie, Noema Pharma, Gilead Sciences, Regeneron, and Pierre Fabre.

Other topics to be addressed include: Scaling patient engagement activities company-wide, engaging patients in early clinical development, leveraging social media to gain patient insights, diversity and inclusion in research and updates on patient engagement activities in Eastern Europe.

Origami and citoQualis will work together to help Medical Device startups get products to global markets faster

KFAR SABA, Israel, 9-Nov-2021 — /EPR HEALTHCARE NEWS/ — Origami, a leading provider of no-code business process automation software for Medical Device and other industries, and citoQualis, a regulatory and business advisory leader for EU Medical Device companies, are announcing a partnership to help Medical Device startups get products to global markets faster.

Medical Device startups face unique pressures due to numerous country-specific regulations. This new partnership will help companies efficiently manage their regulatory approval processes, and enable rapid business growth.

Origami’s medical device customers operate around the world. With recent EU regulatory updates, companies are seeking strategic regulatory and business guidance to help them get and maintain product approval in that geography. The new partnership will provide Origami customers with access to citoQualis expertise in business and complex regulatory landscapes.

The citoQualis team points out that Medical Device startups have global workforces that “expect to access their systems from wherever they’re located, and to use those systems to collaborate internally and with citoQualis” says Mr. Wolfgang Werner, CEO of citoQualis.

According to Mr. Werner, “As advisors, it’s our job to identify opportunities and share our insights. For startups, the faster a product moves from idea to production, the better. With Origami’s flexibility, we are able to give our clients a software option that works for them now and as they scale.”

Germany and other EU countries have strong medical device startup ecosystems, which citoQualis is well connected to. Origami is excited to work with citoQualis and the startups they advise, noting how both companies focus their solutions and teams on helping customers succeed in complex environments.

Yaniv Shimony, CEO of Origami says “startup CEOs recognize Origami’s business value, in that they always have the solution their company needs. When you create a new and innovative medical device, using inflexible software point solutions slows your business down. With Origami, information is instantly available about any part of your business such as sales, quality, design, product approvals, manufacturing, equipment maintenance, purchasing, supplier compliance, invoicing, complaints and more.”

Existing customers will be able to maintain and expand EU market access by working with local regulatory experts, facilitating hundreds of millions of Euros of revenue.

Experts and civil activists demand transparency and information disclosure, including medical history, regarding medical treatment of politicians

RIGA, Latvia, 29-Dec-2020 — /EPR HEALTHCARE NEWS/ — German Charite Medical Center once again is in the limelight of international attention: on December 17 the popular mayor of Kharkov (Ukraine), Gennady Kernes, passed away at the well known hospital after a 3 months struggle with Covid-19.

Kernes got diagnosed 2 days after he was officially elected the Mayor of Kharkiv by 60,34% of voters. The politician was expected to recover and get back to his duties, yet his health condition was rapidly getting worse. In 2014 Kernes was attacked during an assassination attempt and since then had to be moving around in a wheelchair.

Founded in the early 18th century, the Charité Medical Center is considered one of the best in Germany. However, the clinic’s excellent reputation was affected by its repeated involvement in political scandals, that have turned Berlin’s oldest hospital into a kind of an expert center causing major cleavages that increase tensions between those in power and those in the opposition in Eastern Europe. Among the recent cases, that was the high-profile case of Navalny, whom the Charité doctors diagnosed with Novichok poisoning, and in 2013, German doctors provided an equally fatal diagnosis for Ukraine’s ex-Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko, who was then in prison. However, following her release from jail and a weeklong treatment, Tymoshenko fully recovered. In 2018, experts at Charité announced that Pyotr Verzilov, a Russian opposition activist with quite limited support and recognition rating, was poisoned with an unknown substance. Earlier, in 2004, doctors at Charité repeatedly changed the diagnosis of Victor Yushchenko, then the frontrunner in the presidential race in Ukraine. Active involvement into political issues and related statements make the clinic’s reputation highly controversial.

As a result, a number of Russian and Ukrainian media outlets now say that Gennady Kernes, who maintained close contacts with Moscow, could have been intentionally mistreated, adding suspicion to his sudden death. The cases of Yushenko, Navalny, Timoshenko, Verzilov, Kernes and other ones that are actively used at the political and geopolitical arena, make more and more experts and civil activists demand transparency and information disclosure, including medical history, regarding the patients whose health and diagnosis can affect the lives of millions.

SANTA BARBARA, CALIF. / STOCKHOLM, 27-Oct-2020 — /EPR HEALTHCARE NEWS/ — Palette Life Sciences, a fully integrated global life sciences company dedicated to improving patient outcomes, today introduced valuable new online resources for healthcare providers in France, Germany, Italy and Spain. By expanding its Deflux online presence to international audiences, Palette Life Sciences demonstrates its commitment to supporting the global paediatric community.

Deflux.fr is a French-language resource for healthcare providers in France. Deflux.com/de is a German-language site serving practitioners in Germany. Deflux.com/es and Deflux.it are English-language sites serving physicians in Spain and Italy respectively. These new sites offer best-in-class online resources, important information and education about VUR, including symptoms, causes, risk factors and treatment options, such as Deflux®. All of the European sites provide physicians with access to the global Deflux Learning Center, a leading education platform that features information and training for paediatric urologists and their peers who treat VUR. The Deflux Learning Center includes clinical articles, educational videos, webinars, brochures, downloadable tools and The PedSpace podcast series, created for and presented by paediatric urology healthcare professionals.

The Deflux Learning Center for each respective country also provides downloadable educational materials for parents and caregivers managing children with vesicoureteral reflux (VUR).

Exclusive Interview on Addictiveness During the Coronavirus Pandemic with Dr. Henry Balzani, the “Addictiveness Doctor”

Fort Lee, NJ, USA, 2020-May-15 — /EPR HEALTHCARE NEWS/ — In an exclusive interview with Practicomm, nationally recognized addictiveness expert provides valuable update on controversial addiction issues.

Q1. In light of the Coronavirus pandemic, it appears that people who were not addicts could become addictive just from being quarantined? Do you think that would be a large number of new addicts?

Our “Basic Survival Thinking” is mostly negative and being quarantined produces increased life stresses such as, unemployment, financial loss, fear of death, forced isolation and mental illnesses. During the pandemic, there has been an increase in alcohol consumption (as well as other substances) to blunt the negative thoughts. Also, there was an increase in sugary-high carb “comfort foods” used to stimulate positive feelings through the increased production of neurotransmitters like dopamine and serotonin.

But in fact, almost all the Covid-19 deaths are directly related to our addictiveness to high carb, processed food and the abuse of drugs, alcohol, tobacco, especially high blood sugar, diabetes and high blood pressure, which compromise the immune system. In brief, “Yes”, there will be an increase in addictiveness to try to relieve the pressure and mental stress from this pandemic

Q2. Some people say that smoking is a worse addiction than alcohol and drugs. Is that true? If so, why?

Smoking leads to strong persistent cravings for more nicotine within minutes to hours of the last puff. Vaping allows nicotine to almost always “be in hand’ day and night, inside or out. Addiction to different substances varies with the substance and the individual, and is tempered by availability, legality, cost, social acceptance, the onset of health issues, age of user, and more. Smoking health issues usually develop later in life; products are readily available, and vaping is now cool and socially acceptable. Fortunately, tobacco products are banned in buildings and outside in parks, thus making it harder to use freely.

Q3. It seems that most addiction treatment centers have a high percentage of patients who are “cured” for only a small period of time before going back to the addiction. Is that a correct statement?

The LIFETIME tendency to relapse (recidivism) after treatment is still high. The “Post Treatment Cure” is, for most, a physiologic removal of the substance from the body; and, for a time, a psychologic re-education and respite for the client before entering the real world. The “Roots of Addiction” can start early in life and become deeply and unconsciously embedded over years, and can always be reactivated under stress. To achieve a lifetime cure, addicts must always be actively involved in their recovery, because life just doesn’t get easier. I have seen my clients relapse a number of times before being able to maintain sobriety; and, some who have relapsed after many years of sobriety.

Q4. Can addicts actually change the way they think? How would they do that if they could? Does this vary by the type of addiction?

Adult addicts can change the way they think if they have a strong Desire, Interest and Commitment to recover. But, being pushed into recovery usually doesn’t last long.

They must deal with the root causes of their addiction, as they can be reactivated during times of stress. For any addiction, they must fully commit and actively participate in their process of Detox, Treatment, Counseling, and follow up, remove people places and things, and have (or seek out) a strong support system which can help in stressful situations. The stresses of life will always be there and it’s the psychological aspect of addiction that can be persistent!

First Rhenium-SCT® (Skin Cancer Therapy) treatment in Germany done by Dr. Lutz-Hendrik Holle

HANAU, Germany, 4-Oct-2019 — /EPR HEALTHCARE NEWS/ — OncoBeta®, a Medical Device Company specialized in innovative epidermal radioisotope therapies for Non-Melanocytic Skin Cancers (NMSCs), announced today, that Dr. Lutz-Hendrik Holle, Medical Director of the interregional professional association for nuclear medicine in Hanau, has accomplished the first Rhenium-SCT® (Skin Cancer Therapy) treatment in Germany. This state-of-the-art technology of local radionuclide therapy offers a painless and non-invasive treatment option for patients with basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma (BCC and SCC) and the interregional professional association for nuclear medicine Hanau is the first center in Germany that offers the Rhenium-SCT®.

With approximately 50.000 outpatient examinations annually, the interregional professional association for nuclear medicine Hanau is one of the biggest nuclear medicine service providers in Hesse. The offered services include a variety of different modern treatment and diagnostic methods. The key argument for the expansion of the spectrum was that the Rhenium-SCT® is a new, painless and highly efficient treatment option that also delivers excellent cosmetic results. Besides being a painless alternative to other procedures, the Rhenium-SCT® also allows the treatment of numerous NMSC lesions consecutively in a single session, which was already realized during the first treatment in Hanau. This has also attracted international attention so that an American patient travelled to Hanau for the treatment.

“This therapy is particularly suitable for tumor localizations where good cosmetic results are to be achieved. The fact that the treatment is completely painless and can be performed in just one session is a great advantage”, says Dr. Lutz-Hendrik Holle, Medical Director of Nuclear Medicine in Hanau.

“We are very happy and proud to be able to offer our revolutionary treatment to patients in Germany now. The interregional professional association of nuclear medicine in Hanau is an excellent partner for NMSC patients in the fight against NMSC”, said Shannon D. Brown III, CEO and Managing Director of OncoBeta® GmbH. “Unfortunately, Germany is one of the countries that has experienced a drastic increase in newly diagnosed NMSC cases in recent years. Our highly qualified team strives to provide physicians and patients with a non-invasive and affordable solution to treat NMSC, while focusing on the needs of the patient.”

The global incidence of non-melanoma skin cancers has been drastically increasing over the past decades. Depending on the source, it is estimated that there are over 5 million non-melanoma skin cancer cases reported globally each year. In certain analyzed areas of Germany there was an increase in the incidence between the year 2005 and the year 2014 by about 30%1. To serve the increasing medical need for innovative therapies in this field and to improve the quality of patients’ lives, OncoBeta® GmbH has developed its innovative Rhenium-SCT® which only require a single application in most of the cases, applied in one single session with excellent aesthetic outcomes.

CoapTech and Fidmi Medical to Collaborate on Groundbreaking G-Tube Systems

Baltimore, MD, 2019-Sep-18 — /EPR HEALTHCARE NEWS/ — CoapTech LLC (Baltimore, MD) and Fidmi Medical, Ltd. (Caesarea, Israel) announced today that they will be collaborating on bringing to market a set of next-generation products for the initial placement and long-term maintenance of gastrostomy tubes (G-tubes). The collaboration between CoapTech and Fidmi will focus on integrating the company’s two technologies and expanding their collective market opportunities.

Gastrostomy tubes, which help patients receive long-term nutritional support, are typically placed endoscopically and need to be replaced every 3-6 months.

CoapTech’s PUMA-G System allows initial gastrostomy tube placement by non-surgeons/ gastroenterologists, outside of the endoscopy suite, using point-of-care ultrasound at the patient bedside. This novel approach can be performed in the ICU, emergency room, and eventually outside of the hospital setting, substantially reducing costs for tube placement.

Fidmi Medical’s innovative low-profile gastrostomy system is unique in that it can be utilized for both initial placement and replacement and has several features which make it more durable and comfortable for patients. Gastrostomy tubes very often get dislodged, clogged, or infected, and need to be replaced frequently. Fidmi’s improved low-profile gastrostomy tube is placed just like any standard PEG tube but has an easily replaceable inner tube which can be changed by patients without the need to re-enter the healthcare system for replacement procedures. This will result in fewer complications with patients’ g-tubes, therefore potentially reducing healthcare costs for payers and healthcare systems; as well as providing a substantial improvement in quality of life for patients and their caregivers.

Fidmi Medical Chairman, Lloyd Fishman, commented, “We are excited to collaborate with CoapTech in development and marketing. Both companies have developed cutting-edge technologies that will improve patient care and contribute to the ease, efficiency and confidence of clinicians’ work in the gastrostomy field.”

Dr. Steven Tropello, CoapTech’s founder and CMO said, “In combination these systems will be compatible with Push or Pull methods, be implantable in a wide variety of clinical settings, and require minimal readmission to the hospital and fewer visits to the ER. The synergy will reduce both front and back-end costs for hospitals and payers, and make care safer and more patient-centered.”
