The copy warned the Little Blind text

Far away, behind the word mountains, far from the countries Vokalia and Consonantia, there live the blind texts. Separated they live in Bookmarksgrove right at the coast of the Semantics, a large language ocean. A small river named Duden flows by their place and supplies it with the necessary regelialia. It is a paradisematic country, in which roasted parts of sentences fly into your mouth.

Even the all-powerful Pointing has no control about the blind texts it is an almost unorthographic life One day however a small line of blind text by the name of Lorem Ipsum decided to leave for the far World of Grammar. The Big Oxmox advised her not to do so, because there were thousands of bad Commas, wild Question Marks and devious Semikoli, but the Little Blind Text didn’t listen.

She packed her seven versalia, put her initial into the belt and made herself on the way. When she reached the first hills of the Italic Mountains, she had a last view back on the skyline of her hometown Bookmarksgrove, the headline of Alphabet Village and the subline of her own road, the Line Lane. Pityful a rethoric question ran over her cheek, then she continued her way.

On her way she met a copy. The copy warned the Little Blind Text, that where it came from it would have been rewritten a thousand times and everything that was left from its origin would be the word “and” and the Little Blind Text should turn around and return to its own, safe country. But nothing the copy said could convince her and so it didn’t take long until a few insidious Copy Writers ambushed her, made her drunk with Longe and Parole and dragged her into their agency, where they abused her for their projects … Read the rest

George Clinical Helps to Develop a New Investigator Retention Program

One of the challenges with clinical trial site investigators has been the lack of long-term engagement. The George Institute for Global Health along with George Clinical, their clinical research organisation recently took part in a joint effort to develop new guidelines and recommendations to encourage greater long-term engagement and participation by clinical site investigators.

George Clinical is a leading CRO in Asia. We recently were privileged to be a part of developing the Clinical Trial Transformation Initiative (CTTI): The Recommendations for Strengthening the Investigator Site Community. The project aimed to tackle one of the biggest challenges that clinical research organisations around the globe face with the retention of clinical investigator retention.

About the Clinical Trial Transformation Initiative

The Clinical Trials Transformation Initiative (CTTI) co-founded by Duke University and the FDA is a public-private partnership whose mission is to develop and drive adoption of practices that will increase the quality and efficiency of clinical trials. The CTTI vision is a high quality clinical trial system that is patient-centered and efficient, enabling reliable and timely access to evidence-based therapeutic prevention and treatment options. For more information about the Clinical Trial Transformation Initiative and these recommendations, please visit their website: http://www.ctti-clinicaltrials.org

The recommendations focus on strengthening four key categories of site-based research activity:

  1. Developing site-based research infrastructure and staff;
  2. Optimizing trial execution and conduct;
  3. Improving site budget and contract negotiations; and
  4. Discovering additional trials to conduct.

The “Recommendations for Strengthening the Investigator Site Community” report stated that:

‘…evidence suggests that many investigators are leaving clinical research due to difficulty balancing workload, time requirements to conduct trials, data and safety reporting burdens, and financial issues… Substantial time and resources are needed to initiate and train new site investigators in clinical trial processes … High attrition rates for U.S.-based investigators and the resultant need

TOC Analysis in Pharmaceutical Water

Wednesday, 11th October 2017, 2 PM Singapore Standard Time

This webinar will walk through the process and benefits implementing the use of Total Organic Carbon (TOC) in Pharmaceutical. We will talk through the use of TOC analysis in Pharmaceutical water, for performing Cleaning Validation, Replacing HPLC with TOC for CV, for checking the extractable and leachable organics from Plastics used in packaging of pharmaceutical products.

Synopsis:

With a steadily increasing number of recombinant proteins that are being developed as therapeutics there is an increasing demand to provide very exacting methods for validating the product. Unlike their small molecule counterparts there are many more analytical steps – and with them come more analytical challenges –involved in showing that the correct products have been made. Proteins can undergo a myriad of modifications each of which can have a profound effect on the efficacy and half-life of the protein. Some of these modifications are required and some are not, however all of them can vary depending on the growth conditions of the cell line that is being used to express them. Early process development focuses on the conditions of cell growth that provides the protein of the correct amino acid sequence and with the correct, intentional modifications (e.g., glycosylation, disulfide-bond linkages). As this is scaled up it is vital to show that the fidelity of the product remains the same. Once this has been achieved then there will be the need for routine batch testing to provide evidence of reproducibility and batch-to-batch consistency.

One of the most widely used and highly applicable analytical techniques as part of the characterization is peptide mapping. This approach involves the isolation of the protein, controlled chemical modification, enzymatic digestion, separation of the resultant peptides and detection. Using this approach, it is possible to determine that the

4 Tips That Will Help You Quit Smoking For Good

Most people are aware of the dangers of smoking but often find it hard to quit. Giving up cigarettes is a lot harder than some people realize, meaning many smokers try and fail to give up.

The good news is that you can quit, you just need to go about it in the right way. Take a look at the tips below, so you can take more control over your cravings, and ultimately give up smoking for good:

 

Use Alternatives To Cigarettes

Up until a few years ago, if you wanted to quit smoking you were told to chew nicotine gum or wear patches that were thought to help beat the cravings. However, there is now a new kid in town who seems to have made quitting so much easier.

Vapes and E-juices can help to beat those nasty cravings while making your body feel like you’ve smoked a cigarette. A healthier alternative that’s proven to be very popular could be just what you need to give up smoking for good.

Using vapes instead of cigarettes can ultimately reduce your risk of many different types of cancer, and make you feel so much healthier too.

Change The Way You Deal With Cravings

Cravings can potentially be quite hard to deal with, but if you are willing to beat them, you need to change the way you deal with them.

Think about how you will deal with the cravings, and make that change. It’s recommended that you keep yourself busy when the cravings hit, making you less likely to reach for a cigarette.

Leave the room if you’re surrounded by people who are smoking. Go for a walk and stay away from stores that sell cigarettes, or simply use an e-cigarette instead.
