Acute Kidney Injury (AKI): Management and Outcome

2019-09-04T16:18:33+00:00By |Tags: , , , |

In my previous article, I explained the types, causes and symptoms of Acute Kidney Injury (AKI). Here, I’ll share how physicians treat and manage AKI, as well as what to expect. CRRT or intermittent hemodialysis? To treat AKI, nephrologists primarily use renal replacement therapy (RRT), which includes intermittent hemodialysis, peritoneal hemodialysis, various forms of CRRT, and “hybrid” therapies such as prolonged intermittent renal replacement therapy (PIRRT) or sustained low-efficiency hemodialysis (SLED). A few clinical trials are taking a look at CRRT and intermittent hemodialysis under different conditions.

Acute Kidney Injury (AKI): Why aggressive treatment early is a must

2019-09-03T15:30:48+00:00By |Tags: , |

What is AKI? AKI is a sudden, reversible decline in the kidney’s glomerular filtration rate (GFR); in other words, its ability to filter metabolic waste. This kidney damage causes an elevation of serum urea and creatinine, which affects the body's ability to function properly. Most AKI cases are reversible. However, it's important to treat AKI as early as possible to avoid its progression to chronic kidney disease or kidney failure.

Rare Disease: 5 Steps to Successful Program Development

2019-09-03T14:54:03+00:00By |Tags: , , |

There may be as many as 7,000 rare diseases. The European Union defines a disease as rare when it affects less than one in 2,000 people. According to the Orphan Drug Act, a rare disease affects less than 200,000 people in the United States. Support from FDA, EMA and other regulatory agencies, combined with technological and scientific advances, have made it more feasible for pharmaceutical companies to give dedicated attention to orphan drug development. In doing so, they're developing medications for rare diseases that often have no cure and no available treatment. To ensure novel therapies advance from the lab to regulatory approval, a blockbuster-drug approach won't work. Managing rare disease studies to completion requires innovative thinking in nearly every phase of program development. Those willing to become trailblazers have the highest odds of success.

How to Use Proven Methodologies to Develop Successful Clinical Research Programs

As clinical trials become more complex and costly, the need for skilled project managers to oversee them is more important than ever. Project management methodologies drive success for enterprise organizations in all sectors. These same principles can help pharmaceutical and biotech companies run more efficient, successful clinical trials.

Orphan Drugs and Rare Diseases Global Congress 2019 Americas

Biorasi will be at the 2019 Orphan Drugs and Rare Diseases 2019 Americas – West Coast from July 23rd - 24th 2019 in San Francisco, CA, USA. We would like to extend a cordial invitation to all of our partners, sponsors, and friends to come talk to us!. We will be showcasing how Biorasi is a new kind of CRO in how we manage clinical trials, as well as providing information on our Rare Disease Study expertise.

FSGS: A rare kidney disease without targeted therapies

2019-09-03T15:37:50+00:00By |Tags: , |

Researchers are studying a few new and existing drugs to treat FSGS. FSGS needs a novel medication that regulates both high body fats and inflammasome inhibition via upstream innate immune system to block intracellular initiation of inflammatory cascade and extra cellular inflammation. Over the past five years, nearly 30% of Biorasi-initiated or ongoing studies involved chronic kidney disease. Our experience allows us to develop successful nephrology clinical trials.

Is targeted gene therapy in Neurology’s future?

2019-09-03T15:27:56+00:00By |Tags: , , , , , , , , |

To unlock more targeted, effective treatments, genetics researchers are exploring mutations responsible for some of the most common motor neuron diseases. These discoveries may lead to gene therapy treatment routes that do a better job of slowing disease progression than current medications. Much like gene therapy in oncology has brought improvement in cancer regression in recent years, we believe gene therapy—particularly therapy that targets and modulates RNA—is the future of neurology.

How Dermatology Research Gaps Represent Untapped Markets for Pharmaceutical Companies

2019-07-15T11:12:17+00:00By |Tags: |

Gaps in dermatological research present potentially lucrative market opportunities for pharmaceutical companies. Patients that suffer from skin conditions and diseases also benefit. Effective treatments relieve irritating, chronic, and often painful symptoms, which improves their quality of life and lifts the psychological and social burden of a visible dermatological issue.

How to Launch a Successful, Cost-Effective Neurodevelopmental Study

How to run a more efficient pediatric clinical trial: Although pediatric trials overall cost roughly the same as adult clinical trials according to one analysis, they generally produce a more modest return on investment. To ensure your neurodevelopmental or other pediatric study completes in a cost-effective, efficient manner, follow these tips:
