Quotes

A: "It's likely your dog has a noise sensitivity to some things and not others" says Dr. Amy Pike, of St. Louis, MO
"What's alarming is that the poultry industry, which is largely unregulated, is using regular doses of antibiotics as a growth-feed to ensure the chickens quickly gain weight and size" said Director General of CSE Sunita Narain
"Although TC-5214 provided dose-dependent efficacy on several endpoints during the course of treatment, the results were not compelling enough to justify the compound's continued development in overactive bladder" said Stephen Hill, Targacept's chief executive officer
...Stephen A Hill, Targacept's President and Chief Executive Officer. "Assessing these results together with our previous clinical trial outcomes, including data from our most recent trials in schizophrenia and Alzheimer's disease, it is clear that modulation of nicotinic receptors can result in biological effects. However, these effects do not appear to predict new treatments with a meaningful improvement over the current standard of care for the indications studied. Targacept would like to thank the many patients, investigators, study site personnel and operational team members who contributed to making this a well-executed trial."
