Le Multaq de Sanofi un autre médicament à risques

first_imgLe Multaq de Sanofi, un autre médicament à risques ? Le Multaq, un médicament qui traite les troubles cardiaques est actuellement examiné par L’Agence européenne des médicaments (AEM) pour des risques cardiovasculaires et hépatiques.Ce lundi, l’Agence européenne du médicament (AEM) a annoncé que des examens étaient en cours sur le Multaq, un médicament fabriqué par Sanofi-Aventis qui présenterait des risques cardiovasculaires et hépatiques. Cette annonce fait suite à l’arrêt le 7 juillet dernier, de l’étude Pallas du laboratoire pharmaceutique. En effet, cet essai clinique de phase 3 avait pour but de comparer le médicament à un placebo dans la prévention d’évènements cardiovasculaires chez des patients atteints de fibrillation auriculaire (FA) permanente. Mais face à une augmentation des accidents cardiovasculaires, Sanofi a décidé d’interrompre l’étude.À lire aussiAntihistaminique : qu’est-ce que c’est ? A quoi ça sert ?La dronédarone, molécule active du médicament, est donc actuellement réévaluée concernant son rapport bénéfice/risque par l’AEM. Les conclusions de cette étude seront accessibles à la fin du mois de juillet. Pour sa part, L’Afssaps recommande aux médecins et aux pharmaciens la vigilance quant à la considération des différents risques cardiovasculaires, mais aussi du risque d’hépatites avant toute prescription de dronédarone. Car plusieurs cas d’effets indésirables graves hépatiques pouvant mettre en jeu le pronostic vital ont été signalés. Dans deux cas, ils ont même conduit à une transplantation de foie. L’Afssaps indique toutefois aux prescripteurs de “poursuivre la délivrance du médicament qui ne fait pas, à ce stade, l’objet d’une mesure de suspension d’Autorisation de mise sur le marché”Un risque supérieur au bénéfice ? France Soir rapporte les propos du cardiologue Patrick Dary : “En janvier dernier, l’Afssaps nous avait déjà demandé de soumettre les patients traités par le Multaq à un bilan hépatique mensuel. Cela m’a beaucoup étonné qu’on ne nous ait pas parlé de ces effets secondaires lorsque le médicament nous a été présenté à grand renfort de publicité. Nous avons parfois l’impression d’être manipulés” avant d’ajouter : “Dans le doute, je pense que le Multaq devrait être retiré du marché. Je crains que le risque soit supérieur au bénéfice. Le scandale du Médiator devrait appeler à plus de prudence “.Le 12 juillet 2011 à 16:49 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Première en Europe un essai clinique à partir de cellules souches embryonnaires

first_imgPremière en Europe : un essai clinique à partir de cellules souches embryonnaires humainesUne entreprise américaine de biotechnologie va lancer le premier essai clinique en Europe réalisé à partir de cellules souches embryonnaires humaines dans l’espoir de trouver un traitement à une pathologie de la vue. Les cellules souches représentent pour les scientifiques, le meilleur espoir de soigner certaines maladies incurables.C’est une première en Europe et un pas en avant majeur pour la recherche médicale. Jeudi,  une entreprise américaine de biotechnologie a annoncé avoir obtenu le feu vert pour le lancement du premier essai clinique à partir de cellules souches embryonnaires humaines. Selon les dires de l’entreprise en question, Advanced Cell Technology (ACT), l’essai clinique aura lieu prochainement à Londres, au Moorfields Eye Hospital et portera sur des patients atteints de la maladie de Stargardt, une forme de dégénérescence maculaire qui entraîne une certaine forme de cécité chez les jeunes.”C’est la première fois qu’une autorisation d’essai clinique sur des cellules souches embryonnaires est accordée” ailleurs qu’aux États-Unis, a déclaré Bob Lanza, responsable scientifique du laboratoire ACT, cité par LeMonde.fr. En effet, en novembre 2010, ACT a déjà inauguré un premier essai clinique effectué à partir de dérivés de cellules souches embryonnaires afin de pouvoir soigner cette dégénérescence de la vue mais celui-ci s’était déroulé aux Etats-Unis. Or, si seuls deux patients américains ont participé à cet essai, les résultats se sont avérés plutôt prometteurs. “Nous sommes très contents des résultats et nous sommes en train de programmer deux nouveaux essais sur deux autres patients”, a précisé Bob Lanza.Une amélioration de la vue chez les rongeurs C’est d’ailleurs sans doute au vu de ces premiers résultats, que l’Agence britannique de régulation des médicaments (MHRA) et le Comité de conseil sur la thérapie génique ont également décidé de donner leur accord pour un essai clinique. La maladie de Stargardt touche 80.000 à 100.000 personnes en Europe et aux États-Unis, ce qui fait d’elle l’une des pathologies les plus répandues de cécité juvénile. D’origine héréditaire, cette forme de dégénérescence peut se développer dès l’âge de 6 ans et est actuellement incurable. Néanmoins, des tests réalisés sur des rats par ACT ont révélé une amélioration de la vue dans 100% des cas et ont même permis à des souris de retrouver une vue “quasi normale” et sans effet secondaire qui plus est.Dans le cas où le traitement fonctionnerait aussi sur les humains, le laboratoire ACT compte élargir ses travaux à d’autres affections qui entraînent la dégénérescence maculaire, ce qui représente un marché de 30 millions de personnes en Europe et aux États-Unis.Une recherche controversée mais prometteuse Les cellules souches embryonnaires sont issues d’embryon humain au tout début du stade de développement. Elles sont dites souches car elles sont à l’origine de toutes les autres, d’où leur considérable potentiel. Pour un grand nombre de scientifiques, la recherche à partir de cellules souches embryonnaires représente ainsi le meilleur espoir de soigner des pathologies telles que le diabète, la maladie de Parkinson, Alzheimer et même la paralysie des blessés de la moelle épinière, précise l’AFP. À lire aussiMaladie d’Alzheimer : les femmes discriminées dans la recherche ?Interdite durant huit ans par Georges W.Bush pour des raisons morales et religieuses, le président Barack Obama a décidé en mars 2009 d’autoriser à nouveau le financement de cette recherche très prometteuse et ce, contre l’avis des opposants qui estiment que la vie commence à la conception et refusent donc toute recherche aboutissant à la destruction d’embryons. Pour sa part, la France a entériné, dans sa loi de bioéthique révisée en février 2011, le maintien du principe de l’interdiction, avec dérogations, de la recherche sur l’embryon et sur les cellules souches embryonnaires.

Guy Remakes Toy Firetruck as a RemoteControlled Flamethrower

first_img Homemade ‘Super Smash Bros. Melee’ Cabinet Makes Our Hearts …Homemade ‘Sekiro’ Prosthetic Arm Is Cooler Than The Game Okay… before we get any further, let’s just take a moment to appreciate how utterly fucking badass that is. Some guy has re-jiggered his toy firetruck. And he didn’t do it to make it better at putting out fires… no, no. He made the hose and all that shoot. Liquid. Flames. That’s fucking metal. Right? Right. Okay.You can catch the video above, and yeah, just do that. It’s 10-minutes long, but it’s all amazing (though if you want to skip to the flame-y bits, that starts around 4:30). YouTuber and DIY engineer, Peter Sripol grabs an RC Firetruck from a toy store and then goes to town modifying just about everything.As made, the truck is designed to store and shoot water at targets. After an initial test that melted the nozzle on the hose, the truck was practically remade. The pumps shoot further and are harder. The batteries hold more power and the truck’s even more agile than before. And, to show everyone that it all still works, Sripol loads up the machine with water and uses it normally. But then he loads it with gasoline, and the fun really starts.Throughout the video, he chases down and sets ablaze other RC cars, gravel, cardboard boxes and then finally an entire bank of fireworks.The terrifying (and totally rad) thing about this is that the modifications aren’t all that tough to make really. Essentially, he cut an RC car in half and jammed some more gear inside. The fuel pump is taken from a model plane and wired into a controller with some basic, soldered wires. If you’re roughly familiar with DIY electronics projects, this wouldn’t be a tough challenge at all.That said, of course, DO NOT BUILD AN ACTUAL “FIRE” TRUCK. THAT IS BAD. SHOOTING FLAMING GASOLINE AT RANDOM STUFF IS AWESOME. BUT ALSO VERY BAD. The truck does have googly eyes on the front, and that’s cool. And I’d say that if you do build this (which, don’t, seriously), then you are morally obligated to put googly eyes on it.Also, if you’re into this sort of the thing, the dude has tons of videos covering awesome home-made projects. So check out his channel. You can also pick up some of the same gear he uses if you want to take on a similar (but obviously not fire-related, because we agreed that’s bad) project, you can get his RC transmitter here, and the car itself here. You can grab just about any fire truck that will fit that base, but the rest will have to found at hobby shops. Good luck! Y’know… not building this magical thing from beyond the stars.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey. Stay on targetlast_img read more

Trafigura Vitol Saudi Aramco vie for a stake in 65 billion Essar

first_imgTrafigura Group is in talks with India’s private refiner Essar Oil to acquire a minority stake, reported Bloomberg. As India is poised to be “the world’s growth leader” in oil consumption in 2016, trading firms and oil houses have evinced interest in the country’s oil market.Singapore-based commodities trader, Trafigura, is negotiating a minimum of 15 percent stake in Essar. The acquisition, if through, would give the trader access to India’s economy through the fast growing oil and petroleum products.Sources told Bloomberg that the deal could value Essar’s business at $6.5 billion. The company manages 405,000 barrel a day yielding Vadinar refinery, alongside Vadinar Port, a power plant and 2000 plus fuel stations across the country.Times of India noted that the Ruias family-controlled Essar Oil would divest up to 25 percent stake in the company, and Saudi Aramco and trading firm Vitol were also the top contenders for the buy. However, the stake sale was pegged higher to 30 percent for Trafigura talks, said sources to Bloomberg.A 49 percent stake sale of Essar Oil with Russia’s national oil company, Rosneft, has already reached a conclusive stage. The company has inked a deal with Essar to refine 200,000 barrels of crude per day for the next ten years (starting July 2015).Trafigura too has business relations with Rosneft, said Bloomberg. Much of the crude exported by Rosneft is managed by Trafigura, and consequently the commodities trader has become the world’s second-biggest independent oil trader (over 4 million barrels a day).last_img read more

Other notable faces include Sir Ian McKellen, X-Files star Gillian Anderson and fictional character Mr. Bean, played by Rowan Atkinson.In addition to detailing critical safety procedures, the stars also encourage passengers to make donations to the airline’s Flying Start initiative, a global charity partnership with Comic Relief that aids children in need in the U.K. and in some of the poorest countries around the world. Flying Start’s goal is to raise $26 million by 2020.“It’s extremely important to us that customers engage with our safety video, and involving some of the nation’s most well-known personalities has given us the chance to create something fun that we hope people will watch from start to finish – and remember,” said Alex Cruz, British Airways’ chairman and CEO, in an official statement. “We’ve worked with Comic Relief since 2010 and our customers have already helped us generate £16.5 million for great causes.

Home Prices Flat in First of Weeks Reports

first_img Share in Daily Dose, Data, Featured, Headlines, News Appreciation Black Knight Financial Services Home Prices S&P/Case Shiller Home Price Indices 2014-03-24 Tory Barringer March 24, 2014 452 Views center_img The Data & Analytics division of Black Knight Financial Services (BKFS) reported no monthly change in its Home Price Index (HPI) for January, underlining the question as to where other home price reports—including the monthly Case-Shiller Home Price Indices—will land for the year’s first month.BKFS’ latest report shows the index registering $232,000 in January, unchanged from the end of 2013. Year-on-year, the index was up 8 percent from $215,000.”Prices have flattened out due to seasonal effects and a slowing in the market,” said Raj Dosaj, VP of behavioral models and HPI for Black Knight Data & Analytics.Given January’s flatness, national prices remain 14 percent off their peak of $270,000 in June 2006.Of the 20 largest states, California posted the biggest year-over-year increase at 14.8 percent. On a monthly basis, it ranked among the top five largest states, reporting a gain of 0.3 percent.Among all states, New York topped in gains with a 0.6 percent monthly increase. Following the Empire State were New Jersey (0.5 percent) and Nevada, Pennsylvania, Georgia, and the District of Columbia—all at 0.4 percent.Not making the top 10 list in January was Texas, which, after several months spent climbing to new price peaks, backed off a bit with a 0.3 percent month-over-month decline.Among metros, half of the top 10 performers in January can be found in California—not a surprise, given the state’s representation in past HPI reports. Top movers included San Jose (0.9 percent), Santa Rosa (0.8 percent), and Oxnard (0.7 percent), California, which took up the top three spots. Also reporting gains were New York City and San Francisco, each at 0.7 percent.As for this week’s other indices, Dosaj expects to see flat to dropping prices, “as they tend to be impacted by seasonal effects more strongly than the Black Knight HPI,” as they include short and REO sales that are more prone to seasonal volatility.”Going forward we should see positive growth in 2014 but at a more moderate pace compared to 2013.  Somewhere between 2-4 percent for the year is likely,” he said.

Back in early August ESPN NFL reporter Jim Trotte

first_imgBack in early August, ESPN NFL reporter Jim Trotter, as a guest of Off the Edge with B-Train on Arizona Sports 98.7 FM, said he felt the Arizona Cardinals would finish third in the NFC West.That could still happen, of course, but three games into the season it does not look like a great bet.“They’re playing great football,” he said on the same show Wednesday. “They’re not playing their best football, but the fact that they can do what they’ve done without being at their best tells you a lot about this team.” Despite their great start to the season, there are still some who are a bit uneasy about proclaiming the Cardinals to be one of the NFL’s best teams. A quick look at the power rankings has them in the top five, with Yahoo! Sports’, in particular, questioning the quality of the teams Arizona has beaten.And to be fair, the Saints, Bears and 49ers have a combined record of 1-8, and none are expected to compete for a playoff spot.But the Cardinals cannot help who is on their schedule, and the way Trotter sees it, they have passed the eye test.“Absolutely,” he said. “I think the key is obviously can they keep the quarterback healthy? As long as he’s upright and playing at the level that he’s playing at, they’ve got a shot.”The veteran Palmer has won his last nine starts, and has led the Cardinals to victories in 16 of his last 18 outings. His nine touchdown passes this season are tied for the NFL lead and are also the second-most in franchise history through the first three games of a season.Trotter went on to note a conversation he had with Fitzgerald, who told him — with no disrespect meant — that this may be the most talented team he’s ever been a part of. The Cardinals are 3-0 on the season with home wins over the New Orleans Saints and San Francisco 49ers as well as a road win at the Chicago Bears, but it’s not just that they’ve won the games that has impressed folks around the league.Their 126 total points are tied for the fourth-most in NFL history through three games and are the most of any team in the NFL this season, and their +77 point differential is by far the best mark in the league. The Cardinals have also yet to trail any point in a game this year.“I think that there’s credit to go all the way around in this, too,” Trotter added. “You can talk about the personnel moves of Steve Keim, the great coaching of Bruce Arians and his staff, the play of the offense with Carson Palmer, who to me, coming back from that injury and playing at the level he is is one of the more remarkable stories in football this year. The resurgence of Larry Fitzgerald, a defense that’s even stingier with Todd Bowles gone, and a lot of us didn’t think that was possible.“I know some of your listeners got on me in the preseason when I said I had them picked for third in the division; I don’t have a problem saying I was wrong. They’re a lot better than I thought they were.” Top Stories Comments   Share   Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impactcenter_img The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling “He talked about the fact that there are so many weapons, particularly from an offensive standpoint,” Trotter said.He said Fitzgerald, who has 23 catches for 333 yards and an NFL-best five touchdowns so far this year, mentioned how if a defense decides to try to take him away there will be no shortage of players ready and able to pick up the slack.“He said in the past, when you look at that offense, it would be him, it would be Anquan (Boldin), it would be Edgerrin (James), and once you got past that, respectfully, there wasn’t a lot,” Trotter said. “But when you look at it now, you can just go down the list of a number of guys — and he did go down the list of guys who can win one-on-one battles and make plays.“So this is a very deep team offensively, and defensively I just love the swagger that they play with in terms of ball hawking, not being content, everyone wanting to make the play. When you look at their point differential they’re plus-77; there are some teams, a handful of teams in the league that have not even scored 77 points. I don’t know what there’s not to like about this team.” Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retireslast_img read more
