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 Proton Therapy Market 2014-2018

Proton therapy is a type of particle therapy which is used to treat cancer patients by means of proton beams irradiation. The main advantage of proton therapy is that while destroying the target malignant cells, it causes minimal damage to the surrounding cells. Proton therapy uses the ionization technique to inhibit cell proliferation. Protons move slowly through the body and interact with electrons and discharge energy. The MD Anderson Proton Therapy Center is the pioneer in this technology and also initiated the pencil beam proton therapy, which is also known as scanning beam and intensity modulated proton therapy. TechNavio's analysts forecast the Global Proton Therapy market to grow at a CAGR of 9.50 percent over the period 2013-2018. Covered in this Report This report covers......
