Tucson, AZ (PRWEB) September 10, 2012

Critical Path Institute and CDISC (Clinical Data Interchange Standards Consortium) announce the availability of a breakthrough tool to help combat tuberculosis (TB)a persistent disease resulting in 1.7 million deaths globally each year.

This new toola standardized way to report research datais critical for advancing new TB drug regimens. For the first time, researchers are able to combine and evaluate data from multiple studies using a common approach. This will help accelerate the development of new TB drugs by enhancing the design of clinical trials and the evaluation of new drugs. The TB data standards will also assist the regulatory review process for new drug development tools, such as clinical trial simulation models and methods to evaluate treatment endpoints.

The scope of this project was immense and its delivery in nine months was made possible by the smooth collaboration among C-Path, CDISC, FDA, industry partners and the many volunteers who participated in this effort through the Critical Path to TB Drug Regimens initiative, says Dr. Carolyn Compton, President and CEO of Critical Path Institute.

The Critical Path to TB Drug Regimens (CPTR) initiative is a global collaboration among pharmaceutical companies, academia, patient advocacy groups, and regulatory bodies having the shared goal of accelerating the development of new drug regimens targeting TB.

A tremendous amount of innovation has enabled an exciting new era of TB drug development, says Dr. Mel Spigelman, President and CEO, TB Alliance. To support a regimen-based development approach, the research and regulatory communities need new standards and platforms to help conduct, submit, and review this work. This new standard is an example of such a tool and will benefit both researchers and regulators, ultimately helping to ensure new TB cures reach those who need them as quickly as possible.

TB Standards/2

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has identified TB as one of several disease areas having a critical need for data standards. CDISC is very pleased to have had the opportunity to collaborate with the FDA, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Global Alliance for TB Drug Development, and C-Path to complete this TB standard work, based in part on preliminary work conducted through a National Institutes of Health Roadmap grant and clinical terminology support provided through our partnership with the National Cancer Institutes Enterprise Vocabulary Services, says Bron Kisler, VP, Strategic Initiatives and CDISC lead on the project. CDISC standards are vendor-neutral, platform independent, and publically available through the CDISC website at http://www.cdisc.org/therapeutic.

Future CDISC therapeutic area data standards will be developed under the leadership of CFAST (Coalition For Accelerating Standards and Therapies), a joint endeavor between C-Path and CDISC to accelerate clinical research and medical product development by creating and maintaining data standards, tools, and methods for conducting research in therapeutic areas important to public health.

ABOUT CRITICAL PATH INSTITUTE (C-PATH): Established in 2005 as a non-profit organization, C-Path was formed with public and private philanthropic support from the University of Arizona, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and the Tucson community. Additional funding has been provided by Science Foundation Arizona (SFAz). C-Path is committed to improving human health and well-being by developing new technologies and methods to accelerate the development and review of medical products. An international leader in forming collaborations around this mission, C-Path has established global, public-private partnerships that include more than 1,000 scientists from government regulatory agencies, academia, patient advocacy organizations, and 41 major pharmaceutical companies.

thefilmarchive.org February 1, 2012 The United States Department of Housing and Urban Development, also known as HUD, is a Cabinet department in the Executive branch of the United States federal government. Although its beginnings were in the House and Home Financing Agency, it was founded as a Cabinet department in 1965, as part of the “Great Society” program of President Lyndon Johnson, to develop and execute policies on housing and metropolises. HUD has experimented with Enterprise Zones granting economic incentives to economically depressed urban areas, but this function has largely been taken over by states. The major program offices are: Community Planning and Development: Many major affordable housing and homelessness programs are administered under Community Planning and Development. These include the Community Development Block Grants (CDBG), the HOME program, Shelter Plus Care, Emergency Shelter Grants (ESG), Section 8 Moderate Rehabilitation Single Room Occupancy program (Mod Rehab SRO), and Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS (HOPWA). Housing: This office is responsible for the Federal Housing Administration; mission regulation of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac; regulation of Manufactured housing; administration of Multifamily housing programs, including Supportive Housing for the Elderly (Section 202) and Supportive Housing for Persons with Disabilities (Section 811); and Healthcare facility loan insurance.

Denville, NJ (PRWEB) July 24, 2012

Physical therapy software will see additional features added as more input is received from therapists, said Chhoda. EMRs can be very expensive and more cloud-based solutions or outsourcing will be sought to save money. Two of the largest concerns for practice owners is the need for security and remaining HIPAA compliant, which will entail building stronger protections for patient information.

Just as the Internet has evolved to meet the changing needs of users, EMRs will transform physical therapy management. The trend in physical therapy EMRs is toward expanded patient portals that require clients to accept more responsibility for their care, treatment and information. An EMR also facilitates communications between patients and therapists, making it as easy to exchange messages as it is to post on social media sites.

Chhoda noted that part of the communication process will include transferability and access to records from anywhere in the world for enhanced patient care. Currently, client record sharing is a hodge-podge of access ranging from regional to statewide, depending on the provider and the EMR system in place. In an age of global travel, physical therapy management will include access to patient records among all providers for more effective treatment.

The proliferation of apps will extend to EMRs, giving them additional flexibility. Mobile apps will play a key role and could eventually lead to a marketplace where therapists can pick and choose from selections compatible with specific EMRs to expand their range of options.

Physical therapy management software provides clinic owners with the ability to delegate a variety of tasks to staff members that are currently handled by therapists. Prescription refills can be approved by trusted staff. Instructions, notes, x-rays and test results can be posted online instead of having patients return to the office. Backed by the data available in the EMR, errors are reduced while efficiency and accuracy are increased.

Sometimes less is more, and EMRs are assisting in reducing the number of expensive tests that include MRIs and CT scans, providing overall savings for patients and insurance providers. EMRs provide all healthcare providers with a comprehensive record of tests and procedure, saving time that can be better spent on treatments.

There are virtually no limits to the ways an EMR system can be utilized, giving rise to new and innovative means of communication and physical therapy management as information technology continues to evolve. Chhoda noted that trends for EMRs will continue to change as their usage increases, providing the means for better healthcare across multiple disciplines and more profitable practices.

Nairobi, Kenya (PRWEB) May 15, 2012

Sub-Saharan Africa cannot sustain its present economic resurgence unless it eliminates the hunger that affects nearly a quarter of its people, the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) argues in the newly released Africa Human Development Report 2012: Towards a Food Secure Future.

Impressive GDP growth rates in Africa have not translated into the elimination of hunger and malnutrition. Inclusive growth and people-centred approaches to food security are needed, said UNDP Administrator Helen Clark at the launch today, attended by Kenyas President Mwai Kibaki.

Arguing that action focused on agriculture alone will not end food insecurity either, the Report calls for new approaches covering multiple sectors; from rural infrastructure to health services, to new forms of social protection and empowering local communities. Ensuring that the poor and vulnerable have greater voice through strengthened local government and civil society groups is also needed to ensure food security for all.

The quickening pace of change and new economic vitality on the continent make this an opportune time for action, the Report says.

Hunger among plenty

It is a harsh paradox that in a world of food surpluses, hunger and malnutrition remain pervasive on a continent with ample agricultural endowments, says Tegegnework Gettu, Director of UNDPs Africa Bureau.

In yet another paradox, sub-Saharan Africas high rates of economic growth in recent years some of the fastest in the world and improvements in life expectancy and schooling have not led to commensurate improvements in food security.

With more than one in four of its 856 million people undernourished, Sub-Saharan Africa remains the worlds most food-insecure region. At the moment, more than 15 million people are at risk in the Sahel alone across the semi-arid belt from Senegal to Chad; and an equal number in the Horn of Africa remain vulnerable after last years food crisis in Djibouti, Ethiopia, Kenya, and Somalia.

Hunger and extended periods of malnutrition not only devastate families and communities in the short term, but leave a legacy with future generations which impairs livelihoods and undermines human development.

Food security, as defined by the 1996 world leaders Food Summit, means that people can consistently access sufficient and nutritious food to meet their dietary needs for an active and healthy life at a price they can afford.

Freedom from hunger enables people to live productive lives and realize their full potential. In turn, higher levels of human development can further improve the availability of food, creating a virtuous cycle for all.

Policies to build food security

Building a food-secure future for all Africans will only be achieved if efforts span the entire development agenda, Helen Clark said.

While acknowledging that there are no quick fixes, the report argues that food security can be achieved through immediate action in four critical areas:

Increasing agricultural productivity: With a population projected to exceed two billion sometime after 2050, Sub-Saharan Africa will need to produce substantially more food, while mitigating the stresses which agricultural production places on the environment.

Ending decades of bias against agriculture and women, countries must put into place policies which provide farmers with the inputs, infrastructure, and incentives which will enable them to lift productivity.

Encouraging the innovative and entrepreneurial spirit of Africas growing youth population to further stimulate rural economies is particularly important.

With two-thirds of working Africans making a living off the land, policies promoting agricultural productivity would stimulate economic growth, pulling people out of poverty through job and income creation, and increasing their capacity to save and invest in the future. This will also enable a more sustainable use of land and water resources.

Such action can make a difference. Ghana became the first Sub-Saharan African country to achieve the Millennium Development Goal One on halving hunger by 2015, partly by focusing on policies which encouraged cocoa farmers to boost output. Malawi transformed a food deficit into a 1.3 million tonne surplus within two years, thanks to a massive seed and fertilizer subsidy programme.

More effective nutrition: Countries must develop coordinated interventions which boost nutrition while expanding access to health services, education, sanitation, and clean water. The report cites research showing that mothers education is a more powerful factor in explaining lower rates of malnutrition in children than is household income.

In Senegal, coordinated and targeted actions across several ministries, supported by an increased national nutrition budget, helped to lower incidences of malnutrition in children — from 34 to 20 percent between 1990 and 2005. In Tanzania, through similar efforts, children whose mothers received food supplements in the first three months of their pregnancies completed longer schooling periods.

Building resilience: Getting food from field to table in Sub-Saharan Africa is fraught with risk. Countries should take measures to lower peoples and communities vulnerability to natural disasters and civil conflict, seasonal or volatile changes in food prices, and climate change.

The Report recommends social protection programmes such as crop insurance, employment guarantee schemes, and cash transfers all of which can shield people from these risks and boost incomes.

Kenya, for instance, has developed a drought insurance scheme which delivers payments to smallholder farmers based on rainfall levels monitored by weather stations. Another example is Mozambiques input trade fairs, which replenish seed stocks among families affected by drought.

Empowerment and social justice: Achieving food security in sub-Saharan Africa will remain out of reach so long as the rural poor, and especially women, who play a major role in food production, do not have more control over their own lives, the Report says.

Ensuring access to land, markets and information is an important step to empowerment. Bridging the gender divide is particularly vital: when women get access to the same inputs as men, yields can rise by more than 20 percent.

Access to technology can play an important role in channeling power to small land-owners by reducing transaction costs and increasing their bargaining power. The Ethiopia Commodity Exchange, for instance, uses text messaging to disseminate price information to farmers, receiving 20,000 calls daily to a hotline which answers their questions.

Access must be coupled with more participation in civic debate. This in turn, must be linked with greater accountability by governments and other organizations.

For too long the face of Africa has been one of dehumanizing hunger. The time for change is long overdue, the Report argues.

Africa has the knowledge, the technology, and the means to end hunger and food insecurity, says Tegegnework Gettu.

The challenge is large, the time frame is tight, and the investment required is significant, but the potential gains for human development in the region are immense, the Report says.
