Estratégias BAT

Controladora da Souza Cruz, a BAT defende que vaporizadores e dispositivos de tabaco aquecido são menos nocivos do que cigarros
Recomendado pela AMICOR Dra. Mariana Lourenço de Lima Carneiro

Uma das gigantes do setor de tabaco no mundo, a British American Tobacco (BAT), controladora da Souza Cruz, já investiu o equivalente a mais de R$ 9 bilhões nos últimos seis anos no desenvolvimento de alternativas aos cigarros. Ainda proibidos no Brasil, vaporizadores (também conhecidos como cigarros eletrônicos) e produtos de tabaco aquecido (THP, na sigla em inglês) vêm ocupando papel cada vez mais central na indústria fumageira. A consolidação dos “produtos de nova geração”, porém, ainda depende de um desafio: comprovar que se trata de opções mais seguras à saúde humana do que os fumígenos tradicionais./.../

We Need New Biomarkers for Alzheimer's Disease They're essential to coming up with better treatments, and a new initiative could provide them - By Howard M. Fillit on September 21, 2018 Alzheimer’s disease is the sixth leading cause of death in the United States, and the only one that can’t be prevented or slowed. Unlike cancer and heart disease, we currently lack both the tools to easily diagnose Alzheimer’s and the medications to effectively treat it. There are many reasons for this. In sharp contrast to other illnesses, and despite many efforts, huge expense and hundreds of cl... mais »

Potentially useful genes

Aloyzio AchuttiemAMICOR - Há 3 dias
Potentially useful genes are being ignored The Human Genome Project was meant to change everything — but 15 years later, most research still tends to focus on the same old genes. Scientists applied machine learning to an exhaustive list of publications to determine the factors that predict when scientists will choose to study a particular gene. They found it’s partly due to the gene’s importance to human health, but a lot of it simply comes down to how easy the gene was to investigate in the 1980s and 1990s. “The 16 percent of genes that were known in 1991 still accounted for half of... mais »
