  • Vitamin C is an essential nutrient with many important functions in the body, such as immune-system stimulation, growth and repair of tissue, cardiovascular health, bone health and neutralizing harmful free radicals. Recent science has highlighted its potential health benefits, reaching far beyond its antioxidant function for which vitamin C is primarily known. As vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin which the body cannot produce by itself, it must be obtained from the diet or from supplements. Yet, although vitamin C is a common constituent in most fruits and vegetables, many people are still deficient worldwide.

    Join us on May 16th, so that you can be one of the first to see our new webinar on the role of vitamin C in human health and disease. The session will be presented by Prof. Jens Lykkesfeldt, Faculty of Health & Medical Sciences at University of Copenhagen, and he will be joined by DSM’s Prof. Manfred Eggersdorfer and Jacob Bauly. Together, they will discuss the science behind vitamin C, provide examples of its key known functions, as well as share the potential health benefits of consuming it in higher doses. If you miss the first showing, don’t worry - the webinar will also be made available on demand.

  • The rich data in your imaging archive is a resource that has largely been untapped. But now, Dell’s Clinical Cloud Services can help you tap that resource to impact population health and predict hidden risks in your patient population. Using automated machine vision medical image analysis, this new technology identifies patients at risk for chronic diseases such as osteoporosis, heart disease and other conditions, possibly well ahead of overt symptoms. Think of the value this could bring to patients and the advantage it would offer to a healthcare organization in a value-based reimbursement environment. Using existing prescribed imaging studies, Dell’s Imaging Analytics Platform selects appropriate studies that are analyzed for indications of disease presence. The platform makes the results available as reports, which are shared via HL7 or as DICOM objects. These reports are used by primary care physicians and care management program coordinators to provide follow up with patients on diagnostic tests and preventative care programs.

    It is likely that you interact with ‘the cloud’ on various devices, multiple times throughout the day. However, for pharma we have only just scratched the surface regarding what the cloud can offer in terms of security, connectivity and efficacy. ‘Business analytics’ and ‘cloud’ are often misunderstood.

    To answer this, pharmaphorum, in conjunction with industry stalwarts Equinix, present a unique Q&A event, offering the opportunity to ask any questions you may have around what the cloud can do, and how to remain compliant in utilising this technology.

    This debate is an open forum and the expert panel will offer insight about interaction between the cloud and pharma with a particular focus on:
    • Patient outcomes – The cloud and patients, what are the routes to improving outcomes?
    • Internet of things – As the ways to gather data and interact increase exponentially, how does the cloud support this? What are the opportunities and can we eliminate the risk?
    • Data and security – How to achieve compliance almost automatically.
    • Collaboration – Why and how the cloud enables true partnership working.

  • For years, physicists were unable to take advantage of the advancements in computer algebra. Most systems were simply not able to handle the specialized rules and operators, non-commutative variables, and complex notation used regularly in physics calculations, with the result that physicists continued to find it easier to work their problems with pencil and paper. Fortunately, the situation has changed, with new advancements being made all the time that make the complex calculations of physics easier and more reliable.

    In this webinar, learn more about recent advancements in computational physics, and see how these techniques can be applied to problems from general relativity, classical mechanics, quantum mechanics, and classical field theory. A recent project involving the digitization of the solutions to Einstein’s field equations shown in the book “Exact Solutions to Einstein’s Field Equations,” will also be presented.

  • Three-dimensional (3D) cell culture models, which offer significant improvements over traditional two dimensional monolayer cell culture in terms of maintaining morphological and functional characteristics of tissue, are increasingly being incorporated in drug discovery as model systems to study disease or for screening for chemotherapeutic efficacy or drug toxicity. This presentation will demonstrate the use of Corning® spheroid microplates to culture and assay spheroids in a rapid and highly reproducible format that enables the formation of a single multi-cellular spheroid, centered in each well.

    Corning spheroid microplates are multiple well, cell culture plates with opaque walls and unique clear, round well-bottom geometry that utilize the Corning Ultra-Low Attachment surface coating. The coating is hydrophilic, biologically inert and non-degradable. Representative data will be shown exhibiting the use of the spheroid microplate in more specialized assays including the formation of neurospheres from neural stem cells (NSCs), a valuable model to study neurogenesis and neural development, as well as analysis of NSC proliferation and migration. We will also demonstrate the formation of hepatospheres using Corning HepatoCells, an immortalized alternative to primary human hepatocytes, in combination with the SCREEN-WELL Hepatotoxicity library from Enzo Life Sciences for 3D hepatotoxicity screening. Finally, we will show the use of the Corning spheroid microplate to generate spheroids comprised of multiple cell types, demonstrating the impact that including multiple cell types in 3D assays can have on therapeutic outcome in a chemotherapeutic assay.
