REC bid for International STEM students

The House of Lords Science and Technology Select Committee has published a report on International STEM students which has included recommendations made by the Recruitment and Employment Confederation.

Recommendations made by the REC were based on evidence they had collected which highlighted the struggle to fill key, in-demand STEM positions across the UK, traditional filled by international candidates.  The change in international student VISA’s has seen far fewer applicants for specialist STEM positions resulting in vital skills gaps. The desperate need for a wider pool of talent to ensure UK businesses can continue to forge ahead formed the basis of the REC’s recent advice to the House of Lords.

The recommendations, which included the reinstatement of the Post Study Route, are being considered so the struggle to fill specialist STEM jobs may soon be over.

Ironwood’s drug for IBS sufferers gets FDA approval

Fierce Pharma have reported that Ironwood Pharmaceuticals Inc.  and Forest Laboratories Inc.  won regulatory approval of their Linaclotide treatment for irritable bowel syndrome with constipation.

Linaclotide has shown in studies to help alleviate abdominal pain and symptoms of constipation. Ironwood has said that as many as 11 million Americans have irritable bowel syndrome with constipation, and for many it comes with a lot of pain. While Takeda Pharmaceutical is already in the market with its Amitiza, analysts say the fact

that the Ironwood drug may relieve pain will help it quickly outsell its competition.

Linaclotide was developed by Ironwood with New York-based Forest Labs, and the companies will co-promote the drug in the U.S. Ironwood licensed the drug in Europe to Barcelona, Spain- based Almirall SA (ALM), and to Tokyo-based Astellas Pharma Inc. (4503) for several Asian countries.

Novella Clinical’s Acquisition of Prologue Creates Pharmaceutical Jobs

pillswhite1As reported by the PharmaTimes, the contract research organisation (CRO), Novella Clinical has acquired the US CRO Prologue Research International.  The deal will add some 60 pharmaceutical jobs to the already 738 strong team.

Prologue mainly focuses on cancer drug development, so the deal will see Novella Clinical’s oncology profile rise significantly. In fact, Richard Staub, Novella’s CEO has been quoted in saying that the acquisition is a welcome ‘strategic addition’ to the clinical services agreement signed earlier this year with OSI Pharmaceuticals.

OSI Pharmaceuticals mainly focuses on discovering, developing and commercialising targeted medicines for cancer. In January, Novella and OSI expanded their clinical services, meaning that Novella had the capability to provide clinical research to SE for a two-year period.

With the acquisition of Prologue, Novella Clinical will now create a business unit dedicated to oncology drug development.

Speaking of the acquisition, Tom Ludham, CEO of Prologue said that it: “allows us to better serve current and future customers in the design and execution of complex oncology programmes across geographic regions”.
