26, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — Frontier Pharma: Chronic, Acute and Neuropathic Pain – GPCR and Nerve Growth Factor-based therapies offer strong potential in difficult-to-treat subtypes Summary Pain, and in particular chronic pain, is a significant global health issue. While pain is not considered a disease in its own right, there is a growing body of evidence that substantiates chronic pain as a disease, rather than just as a symptom of a primary cause. In the US, pain affects more people than cancer, diabetes and heart disease combined, with an estimated 100 million people having experienced at least one chronic pain episode in the last 12 months, at an annual cost of around $600 billion in medical treatment and lost productivity. The pain therapeutics market has been largely characterized by only incremental product innovation over the last decade, as most market segments continue to be dominated by long-established product categories, active pharmaceutical ingredients and concomitant mechanisms of action. Moderate-to-severe pain has been and continues to be dominated by opioids, which are increasingly being reformulated to offer abuse-resistance, whereas mild pain is effectively treated with non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAID). However, significant unmet needs remain, as chronic pain subtypes – and particularly neuropathic pain – do not respond well to existing therapies, which do not align to the underlying molecular pathophysiological profile of pain. However, strong unmet needs remain in core therapy types such as NSAIDs, which are associated with often severe gastrointestinal adverse events (AE), and opioids, which have a range of AEs associated with them – in addition to the potential for abuse, which has not been fully alleviated by the development of abuse-deterrent formulations. The exceptionally large active pain pipeline, second only to breast cancer in terms of size, consists of 810 products across all stages of development, indicating that a great deal of resources are being invested into R&D, with the aim of ultimately overcoming the limitations of existing therapies. Moreover, GBI Research’s analyses identified 129 first-in-class programs in active development, constituting 20% of the pipeline for which there is a disclosed molecular target, and acting on 80 distinct first-in-class molecular targets. Although there is significant differentiation in the scientific rationale and clinical prospects across these first-in-class products, the majority of first-in-class targets demonstrate significant preclinical evidence, and alignment to molecular pathophysiological changes.

Iowa confirmed that senior Matt VandeBerg injured his foot in practice on Monday. navigate hereThere are some reports that he broke his foot in a non-contact drill. VandeBerg, from Sioux Falls, leads the team in receptions, receiving yards, and receiving touchdowns. He also led the Hawks with 65 receptions last season, so he won’t be replaced easily. click here to read“There are no guarantees. It’s kind of like life,” said Iowa head coach Kirk Ferentz. “But the good news is he’s got a great attitude. He was great this morning, and that’s a starting point for any kind of recovery. That’s just how it works.
