ABPI code often neglected

As reported by The Pharma Times, neglect of the Association of British Pharmaceutical Industry (ABPI) code is growing more and more common.

There have been a number of high profile campaigns which have been found to be in violation of the ABPI Code. Such campaigns have been found by the Prescription Medicines Code of Practice Authority (PMCPA) to either:

  • Encourage patients to request that their healthcare professional prescribe them a certain prescription-only medicine (POM)
  • Advertise POM’s to the public
  • Promote an unlicensed indication

The ABPI Code states that communications with patients must be:

  • Non promotional
  • POM should NOT be advertised to the public
  • Factual and balanced
  • Should not mislead in terms of safety
  • Communicated in such a way that members of the public are NOT encouraged to ask their health care professionals to prescribe them a certain medicine.

However, many in the industry disagree with these findings and highlight the need for pharmaceutical companies to be creative in their communications to patients. Some believe this is growing in importance due to the rise in popularity of mediums such as Facebook, blogging and apps among patients.

EU patent ban announced on stem cell research

As reported by the BBC, The European Court of Justice has banned the issuing of patents for embryonic stem cell research.

The research has been banned on ethical grounds as it involves the destruction of human embryos.

Stem cell research involves extracting human embryonic stem cells from surplus vitro fertilised eggs donated after fertility treatment. The cells are then modified and injected into patients. These cells are a useful tool for repairing and regenerating diseased organs and tissues.

The European Court has stated that “scientific research entailing the use of human embryos cannot access the protection of patent law” and that it is unethical to profit from what it sees as the fundamentals of human life.

The case was originally raised by Greenpeace against scientist, Oliver Brustle, who was investigating the use of stem cells to treat neurological diseases such as Parkinson’s.

So, whilst there are no restrictions on human embryonic stem cell research in Europe, it will now be extremely difficult to get patent approval for any new discoveries that are made as a result of this research.

The ruling is a real blow to the commercial development of such products within the European Union. The ruling effectively means that any stem cell research technique invented by scientists working in the EU can now be easily and legally copied by rival scientists.

Lastly, there is also a fear that this type of research could be pushed elsewhere as Pharmaceutical companies in the EU will be less inclined to seek involvement as they are now unable to safeguard their investment.
