...with a poor prognosis for patients at risk for hospitalization," said Sean Harper, executive vice president of Research and Development at Amgen. "Analyses from the pivotal SHIFT study complement the main trial findings that form the basis of our U S submission package for ivabradine. We recently received a priority review designation for ivabradine from the FDA and are working with the agency to potentially bring this important treatment option to certain patients with chronic heart failure in the U SS as soon as possible."
The following quote was obtained by the news editors from the background information supplied by the inventors: "A variety of medical devices for delivering a therapy and/or monitoring a physiological condition have been used clinically or proposed for clinical use in patients. Examples include medical devices that deliver therapy to and/or monitor conditions associated with the heart muscle, nerve, brain, stomach or other organs or tissue. Some therapies include the delivery of electrical signals, e g., stimulation, to such organs or tissues. Some medical devices may employ one or more elongated electrical leads carrying electrodes for the delivery of therapeutic electrical signals to such organs or tissues, electrodes for sensing intrinsic electrical signals within the patient, which may be generated by such organs or tissue, and/or other sensors for sensing physiological parameters of a patient. Some medical devices may be 'leadless' and include one or more electrodes on an outer housing of the medical device to deliver therapeutic electrical signals to organs or tissues and/or sense intrinsic electrical signals or physiological parameters of a patient."
"These data presentations continue to support Eisai's efforts to foster a greater understanding of obesity, a chronic, progressive disease that has serious health consequences, and the role of lorcaserin in this patient population" said Lynn Kramer , MD, President of the Neuroscience and General Medicine Product Creation Unit and Chief Clinical Officer of Eisai Company Ltd
...of miniaturized technologies," said Hemal Nayak, MD, the University of Chicago electrophysiologist who placed Moore's pacemaker in his heart. "This device is remarkably compact and relatively easy to implant. We think it could prove to be a good alternative, especially for patients who have had problems caused by a traditional pacemaker implant involving leads or pocket, or in those patients who may be at higher risk for developing these problems."
