GSK Signs Nicotine Vaccine Deal

logo-gsk

As reported in a recent Financial Times article, it has been announced that GlaxoSmithKline has paid Nabi Pharmaceuticals an upfront fee of $540 million, allowing them to both license the nicotine vaccine, NicVax, and to develop the next generation of nicotine vaccines.

Nabi began testing the nicotine vaccine 4 years ago as a result of funding from the National Institutes of Health. Nabi have now signed a $540million deal with pharmaceuticals giant, GlaxoSmithKline. As a result, NicVax has now entered the first of two Phase III trials. The vaccine is designed to both stop the nicotine in tobacco entering the brain, and to help create antibodies that bind to nicotine molecules, preventing them from passing from the blood to the brain.

Nabi also believes that this innovative vaccine could also be used to help prevent smoking relapse. Relapse rates can be known to be as high as 90% during the first year after the smoke quitters. In early trials it has been found that those vaccinated with NicVax were 3.5 times more likely not to be smoking again after a year. Jean Stephenne, President of GSK Biologicals, said that if approved, “This smoking cessation vaccine technology could be a novel solution to help the millions of smokers who want to stop smoking and remain abstinent; a habit that is well documented to be very hard to stop permanently”.

This deal highlights a move by the large pharmaceutical companies to expand their horizons by moving further into the field of vaccines, indicating that there is the potential for many jobs to be created within this field.

CK Clinical announced as speaker at Social Media Conference

Taking place on Thursday 22nd April 2010, the Social Media Recruitment Conference is the second largest of its kind in the UK. CK Clinical, a leading specialist clinical recruitment company, has been recognized by the conference organizers to be a pioneer in the use of social media, and has been invited to speak at the Conference.social-media-network

Here at CK Clinical, we recognize that there are not enough hours in the day for our specialist clinical Consultants to drive our social media strategy themselves. Therefore, one of the first steps taken was to recruit a Marketing Graduate, Catherine Gutsell, to further develop and promote our online brand and digital communications strategy. The main activities Catherine has engaged in are:

  • Search engine optimization.
  • Using social media such as LinkedIn, Twitter and Facebook to both educate and inform clinical clients and candidates, not just to sell.
  • Using YouTube video job advertisements as a way to connect with candidates in a more human and personalised way.
  • Running regular surveys to gather information about the Clinical and Pharmaceutical industry and communicating findings back through relevant publications and social media.
  • Using online communities such as Ning.com and external blogs to candidates with industry updates and careers advice.

So far, our efforts appear to be working. We have seen a 33% increase in organic hits to our clinical recruitment website. Not only this, but the deployment of our social media strategy has also added value to the experience we provide to both candidates and clients. In terms of our candidates, our use of social media enriches their job seeking experience as it allows us to build long-term sustainable relationships, enabling us to completely understand their needs. From a client’s perspective, by using social media to really get to grips with what the clinical jobseeker is about, we are able to create a great match between candidate and job. This means we do not waste our clients’ time putting inappropriate candidates in front of them.

The aim of the Social Media Recruitment Conference is to help Corporate Recruiters, Recruitment Agencies, Recruitment Advertising Agencies, Job Boards and Recruitment Industry Suppliers get the most from the use of social media. The organizer, Mike Taylor, from Online Recruitment Marketing Specialists, stated, “There were over 150 people at the first Conference which was a clear indication in the interest in Social Media. Next year’s conference will be held some nine months after the first one which means that there will be plenty of new things to talk about and discuss.”

Here at CK Clinical, we are looking forward to sharing our story at the Social Media Recruitment Conference. Speaking of the conference, Catherine stated, “We are honored to be speaking at the Social Media Recruitment Conference and it’s brilliant that our efforts have been noticed by such a prestigious event within the Recruitment Industry. We are really looking forward to sharing our story.”

The conference will take place on Thursday 22nd April 2010 at the British Library Conference Centre in London. If you would like to register to attend Social Media Recruitment Conference, please visit their website.
