Physicians’ Opinions Survey on FDA’s Bydureon Approval

Report Description

Physicians were asked to assess their impressions of Bydureon in terms of efficacy, safety, tolerability, expected use, and other important factors. Key questions are broken down by specialty or familiarity to highlight difference in physician perceptions

Highlights

Datamonitor anticipates that the initial enthusiasm will ultimately be muted once physicians gain experience with the drug. Nevertheless, a once-weekly antidiabetic agent clearly represents an attractive option for type 2 diabetes patients, and physicians expect the drug to be a welcome addition to their armamentarium.

Global Hepatitis B Vaccines Market 2014-2018

Hepatitis B is an inflammatory condition that occurs due to infection by hepatitis B virus. Hepatitis B virus is an enveloped virus that belongs to the family of hepadnavirus. It contains a circular genome with partially double-stranded DNA. The virus interferes with the normal functioning of the liver cells. Following the viral infection, the immune system is activated against virus and hepatocytes infected with viruses. This, in turn, leads to the inflammation of the liver. Extra-hepatic manifestations of hepatitis B include polyarteritis nodosa, Gianotti-Crosti syndrome, transient serum sickness-like syndrome, and membranous glomerulonephritis. Perinatal transmission of hepatitis B virus is the most common mode of infection spread. Age of a person at the time of infection and infecting ......
