Dermatological Drug Development

This book uniquely summarizes approaches to developing dermatological drugs in a regulated environment from the perspective of the pharmaceutical industry. It brings together the insights of skilled and experienced industry experts to reveal the complexities of dermatological drug development, covering topical, oral, and biologic drugs. This book fills an important gap, as there is currently no other textbook addressing dermatological drug development, explaining and illustrating why unique nonclinical and clinical studies are necessary and how they are typically designed and conducted. The drug development process is also an evolving strategy that is characterized by communicating, negotiating, and agreeing with regulatory agencies, such as FDA (US), EMA (EU), and PMDA (Japan).

Death by Appointment

This is a book about a controversial issue—whether doctors should be licensed by law to supply lethal drugs to terminally ill patients. It is written primarily for those who want to find a path through the thickets of a subject that transcends many fields of expertise. The authors have considerable experience of the matters about which they write, involving both research and hands-on medical care of dying people. They are not neutral about ‘assisted dying’: they are not convinced that the law is in need of change. However, the book employs an evidence-based approach and brings much-needed clarity to such complex issues as how the existing law works, how medical practice operates at the end of life, and what has been the experience of jurisdictions that have gone down the ‘assisted dying’ road. Above all, the book shows respect for the views of others who may judge the evidence differently.

Spiritual and Corporeal Selves in India

This volume offers a number of images of contemporary India where glocalization is undoubtedly present. The twelve chapters included here provide different perspectives on the relationship between the corporeal and the spiritual, highlighting the union of both soul and body, which has been present from the very beginning of the Indian civilization.This volume offers clues to understand the differences and similarities that characterise the East-West encounter through artistic representations in the era of globalisation. It also enhances the importance of re-inscribing the fusion of the spiritual and the corporeal into the academic research agenda. In Western theory, the body has been arguably dismembered and separated from the spiritual. As such, this text opens up a range of possibilities to tackle and debunk the dualism of both the corporeal and the spiritual suggesting a rupture of the “logic” of binary thinking. The contributors specifically focus on Indian culture and analyse how we can empirically and theoretically reconcile mind and body in order to promote active and reciprocal exchanges among educators, students, researchers, social activists, and those professionally and spiritually engaged with Indian studies.

The Influence of the Pharmaceutical Industry on Medicine, as Exemplified by Proton Pump Inhibitors

This book is based upon 45 years of clinical and scientific experience with gastroenterology, especially the stomach. In clinical medicine, Marshall and Warren’s assertion that Helicobacter pylori is the main cause of gastritis, peptic ulcer disease, and gastric cancer made an immense impact. However, although peptic ulcers now can be treated with antibiotics, drugs that inhibit gastric acid secretion, including proton pump inhibitors (PPIs), are used in up to 10% of the adult population in Western countries in the treatment of gastro-oesophageal reflux disease and dyspepsia. For a long time, PPIs were the most frequently sold drugs, which made their economic impact huge.The reduction of gastric acidity induces the release of the gastric hormone gastrin, which stimulates its target, the ECL cell, to release histamine; this subsequently augments the acid secretion from the parietal cell. Gastrin also stimulates ECL cell proliferation, and long-term hyperstimulation leads to the development of tumors. The author of this book began his studies into the role of the ECL cell in human gastric carcinomas by demonstrating ECL cell markers in gastric cancer cells. This incriminated the ECL and its main regulator, gastrin, in gastric carcinogenesis. Every condition with reduced gastric acidity including treatment with drugs inhibiting acid secretion, leads to increased gastrin and thus to a predisposition to gastric cancer. This short book provides ample evidence of the pharmaceutical industry’s influence on medical science. It also highlights the lack of respect and attention that the medical world gives to a biological function like gastric acidity, which prevents microbes, including viruses and prions, from entering the body through the gut.
