Os brasileiros mais pobres vivem em condições de desenvolvimento humano comparáveis às da Índia, mas os 20% mais ricos, em situação melhor que a fatia mais rica da população da Suécia, Alemanha, Canadá e França. As informações estão no relatório do PNUD que analisa os números recentes do Índice de Desenvolvimento Humano (IDH) e cita um estudo europeu que conclui que países que atingiram alto desenvolvimento humano (IDH maior de 0,800) nos últimos anos, como o Brasil, ainda têm parte da população sofrendo privações comuns às de países do fim da lista./.../

Morris Collen, M.D: Drug Interactions

Pioneering Researcher at 95 Returns to Lifelong Quest in Drug Interactions

By Crystal Phend, Staff Writer, MedPage Today
Published: December 24, 2008
Reviewed by Zalman S. Agus, MD; Emeritus Professor 
University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine.

OAKLAND, Calif., Dec. 24 -- When Morris Collen, M.D., peers into his medicine cabinet at the assisted-living facility apartment where he lives, his thoughts are far from the typical musings of a 95-year-old. He is thinking of adverse drug interactions.

He considers his eight daily prescription drugs, the eyedrops, and the multivitamins he takes, and he wonders how each affects the others, and what this hodgepodge is doing in his body./.../

intensive glycemic control

AHA/ACC/ADA issue statement on intensive glycemic control


19 December 2008

MedWire News: Three leading US diabetes and cardiovascular (CV) organizations have issued a statement in which they urge clinicians to continue to pursue a glycated hemoglobin target of less than 7.0%, alongside aggressive risk-factor control, in order to reduce the risk of microvascular complications in Type 2 diabetes. /.../

The Future of Pharma

The Future of Pharma

Over the next few years, drug makers are likely to face many new challenges, including government approved importation of cheaper drugs,  Medicare negotiating for lower prices, stricter regulations of direct-to-consumer advertising, and (hopefully) a more robust FDA under the Obama Administration. With so many changes afoot, Big Pharma will have to evolve or suffer the consequences. Even drug executives see the need for a restructuring of the industry. Earlier this month, the head of pharmaceuticals at Roche told reporters that the “marginally-different-and-market-it-like-hell model [of prescription drugs] is over.” But if that’s true, then what new model will take its place—and will it be any less troubling?/.../

TRANSCEND INTERNATIONAL:A NETWORK FOR PEACE AND DEVELOPMENT

TRANSCEND INTERNATIONAL connects autonomous individuals and centers working on peace by peaceful means, development by developmental means and environment by environmental means. The mission statement defines four pillars: To bring about a more peaceful world by using action, education/training, dissemination and research to handle conflicts with empathy, nonviolence and creativity.

TRANSCEND was founded August 1993 by Johan Galtung and Fumio Nishimura as a conflict mediation organization. Dietrich Fischer joined and June 1995 Fischer and Galtung invited 11 others. Mid 2008 TRANSCEND has 350 scholars-practitioners from 80 countries as members, one third women. TRANSCEND International, Inc., is registered in Hawai'i and has 501(c)3 tax-exemption number 99ï·“0339345. Treasurer: Katrin Kaeufer 

TRANSCEND is organized in a dozen regions around the world: Northern Europe, German-speaking Europe, Eastern Europe, CIS, Europa Latina, Africa, the Arab World, the Middle East, South Asia, Southeast Asia, (North-)East Asia, North America, Latin America. Each region has a convener. The Board of Conveners is TRANSCEND's highest authority, sensitive to the biannual member assemblies.

During the 15 years from 1993 most of the work has been on conflict mediation and violence conciliation, using Diagnosis-Prognosis-Therapy, on often very difficult and complex conflicts. In that connection peace journalism, peace education and peace business have played important roles.
