The Changing economics of medical technology by Annetine Gelijns( Book )

7 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 286 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume summarizes the second in a series of Institute of Medicine workshops whose intent is to examine critically the process by which biomedical research is translated into actual benefits in medical practice. The cost of research and development (R&D) - particularly for the regulated medical technologies such as pharmaceuticals and devices - has escalated dramatically over the past two decades. Significant factors associated with higher R&D costs include the shift in research emphasis toward more complex chronic conditions and, more importantly, demands for more extensive demonstration of safety, efficacy, and cost- effectiveness. Simultaneously, the economic returns to the innovator have become increasingly constrained by a host of policies intended to contain health care expenditures. In view of these trends, the Commitee on Technological Innovation in Medicine chose to devote its second workshop to an examination of the economics of medical innovation, drawing on experience in the United States, Europe, and Japan. One of the important conclusions is that the need is clear for additional research on the economics of innovation in medicine

Potent biology stem cells, cloning, and regeneration by Nova( Visual )

6 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in English and held by 243 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Stem cells are fundamental to biology. In the course of embryonic development, stem cells generate all the specialized cells that populate body tissues like muscle, the nervous system, and blood. In adults, reserves of stem cells repair and regenerate tissues damaged by disease and wounding. Because of the potential of stem cells to generate fresh, healthy cells, there is a huge interest in cultivating them to treat various diseases. This year's Holiday Lectures will explore exciting progress toward the goal of harnessing stem cells to treat diabetes, nerve damage, and heart disease--WWW page of
