Tian Yang, Ph.D., Director of Preclinical Drug Evaluation, Global Alliance for Tuberculosis Drug Discovery
"Drug Safety Challenges in Drug Discovery – Examples in TB Drug Discovery and Treatment"
Abstract: Decreasing the high attrition rate in drug discovery and development process is a primary goal of the
pharmaceutical industry. Drug candidates failed to be further development in clinical is mainly due to lack of
efficacy, adverse drug effect, poor bioavailability, and business/market. Thus one of the main challenges in drug
discovery and development is to define an appropriate balance between drug efficacy and potential adverse
effects as early as possible in order to reduce safety-related attrition, particularly in the more expensive late
stages of clinical development. A number of in vitro assays have been developed to guide discovery lead optimization to reduce drug safety liabilities including in vitro pharmacological profiling, cell based toxicity, and screening of ion channels. The presentation will discuss in vitro toxicological ‘hit' and optimization strategies. Examples will be given from tuberculosis drug discovery and development.

"Private Cloud Informatics Technology for Mass Spectrometry: 100x Faster, 30% More Identifications,
Zero Hardware and Global Collaborations"
In the world of mass spectrometry, bioinformatics has been argued to be one of the biggest bottlenecks for
effective use of the mounds of generated MS data. A few of the biggest labs have invested multiple years and
millions of dollars building custom, proprietary internal informatics solution to address these informatics needs.
Even back in 2008, we wondered if there was a better way. Many years ago, a startup company that was spun
off from the University of Maryland approached us. They wanted to know if we could develop an informatics
solution for their MS needs. Rather than trying to build a custom solution for a single client, we decided to
approach the problem from the perspective of developing a more general, universally applicable MS informatics
product using all the knowledge we had gained in developing bid data solutions for clients in other fields.
We will share the story of the initial customer needs in 2008, how Johns Hopkins University (JHU) became
ultimately our key client from 2008 to the present day, our missteps along the way (both business and
technical), and ultimately the five major problems we discovered that almost all MS informatics suffered from:
1) securely and robustly storing massive amounts of MS data; 2) processing the MS data 100x faster compared
to traditional approaches by using private cloud technology; 3) enabling true global accessibility and
collaborations; 4) integrating disjointed MS informatics processes; and 5) eliminating/reducing the hidden costs
and complexities of these so-called "enterprise informatics" solutions.
We will conclude with the current state of affairs at JHU, in particular focusing on the exciting companies
-- with reputable venture capital funding -- that the JHU PIs have started based on the putative biomarkers
identified using mass spectrometry coupled with the above-referenced informatics solution.
Bio: Gautam Saxena graduated with a degree in Electrical and Computer
Engineering (1999) from McGill University (Montreal, Canada). During his studies,

WEEKLY GLOBAL ENERGY Markets SNAPSHOT September 1 – September 5, 2014 News you missed during the week… St Vincent Geothermal Power Plant Could Be Operational By 2018 St. Vincent and the Grenadines Prime Minister, Dr. Ralph Gonsalves, updating the country on the results of the surface exploration phase of the geothermal project stating that a recent report indicated Mount Soufriere is hosting a high temporary geothermal reservoir of commercial use. Gonsalves further mentioned that if everything "goes well and on scheduled", the geothermal plant is scheduled to begin operations in June 2018. St. Vincent and the Grenadines current peak demand for electricity is 20MW with 5MW generated by hydropower. The government is exploring the development of a 5 to 15 MW geothermal power plant to provide base load power to the country. (Source
für Hospizhelfer Hospiz Landesarbeitsgemeinschaft Niedersachsen e.V. ©Arbeitsgruppe 17.10.2000 Moderation und Ausarbeitung Ulrich Sündermann Hospiz Landesarbeitsgemeinschaft Niedersachsen e.V. DASEIN Hospiz Nienburg / Weser e.V. P M L Krankenhaus Nienburg *Alle Charakterisierungen gelten genauso in der weiblichen Form, und Ausnahmen bestätigen wie immer die Regel. J Stichwort „Palliative Care": Laut Definition (von 1990) der WHO (World Health Organization –Weltgesundheitsorganisation- gegründet 1948) bedeutet „Palliative Care": „Die wirksame, ganzheitliche „care" (Sorge, Obhut, Pflege) von Patienten deren Krankheit nicht mehr kurativ (heilbar) behandelbar ist. Dabei stehen die erfolgreiche Behandlung der Schmerzen und weiterer Symptome (Zeichen von Krankheit) sowie die Hilfe bei psychologischen, sozialen und seelsorgerischen Problemen an erster Stelle. Das Ziel der „Palliative (lateinisch: pallium – der Mantel, übertragen auf Medizin: ummanteln oder umsorgen) Care" ist, die bestmögliche Lebensqualität für Patienten und deren Familie zu erreichen." „Palliative Care" unterstützt Leben und betrachtet Sterben als natürlichen Vorgang. „Palliative Care" will sowohl den Patienten unterstützen um ihm ein möglichst selbstbestimmtes Leben bis zum Tod zu ermöglichen, als auch seinen Angehörigen und Freunden zur Seite zu stehen, damit Sie mit Krankheit und Trauer besser zurechtkommen. Wenn also keine Heilung mehr möglich ist und mit dem baldigen Tod gerechnet wird, gilt es bis zum letzten Atemzug selbst bestimmt zu leben. Dies stellt manchmal in der konkreten Lebenssituation besondere Anforderungen an Hospizhelfer. Anforderungen die selten in Standards geregelt sind und nicht immer auf dem Boden der erlernten klassischen Handlungsweisen erledigt werden können. Besondere Kenntnisse und Maßnahmen sind jetzt erforderlich. Unumstößlich bleibt dabei, dass Hospizhelfer in der Regel keine Krankenpflege leisten. Sicherlich ist es aber von Vorteil, nicht völlig unvorbereitet zu sein. Hier bieten sich Kurse für Pflegende Angehörige an, die von Sozialstationen oder von Krankenkassen durchgeführt werden. In diesen Kursen wird pflegerisches Grundwissen an Laien vermittelt. Die vorliegende Schrift, soll eine Übersicht über Maßnahmen geben, die dem Schwerkranken und Sterbenden Erleichterung, Linderung und Hilfe bieten. Es gilt, den Auftrag des Gesetzgebers bezüglich der GANZHEITLICHKEIT bei der Betreuung  sehr ernst zu nehmen. :."pflege heißt, den Patienten in seiner aktuellen konkreten Situation und Befindlichkeit aufzunehmen, ihn anzunehmen, sich ihm liebevoll zuwenden, ihn umsorgen, sich für ihn einsetzen, ihn gegebenenfalls auf seinem Weg zum Tod zu begleiten. Pflege setzt voraus, dass zwischen Pflegenden und Gepflegten, Beziehungen entstehen, in denen anvertrautes Leiden und Leben gemeinsam getragen werden können. Pflege umfasst daher alle Maßnahmen, die notwendig sind und die dazu beitragen, dass der Patient . würdevoll sterben kann." Welche Maßnahmen zur Anwendung kommen, sollte immer mit dem Schwerkranken, sterbenden Menschen und ggf. mit seinen Angehörigen, Freunden und den professionell Pflegenden abgesprochen werden.
