Biopharma in China: Insights into a market at a crossroads

Market growth has remained in mid-single figures over recent years, with total value reaching some $130 billion in 2018, making China second only to the United States in world rankings. However, powerful trends are set to transform the industry over the next few years. On the one hand, the threat to mature brands has reached a tipping point driven by pressure from a combination of new policies; on the other hand, regulatory reform and broadening of market access provide a brighter outlook for innovative and patented products, although real uncertainties remain.

Some observers say digital advances will have a major impact on the industry, while others believe true digital transformations are still years away. New Development of Rare Disease Policy in China. Petition and Revision of the Rare Disease List On May 28, 2018, a much less recognized but very substantial document, the Procedure of Developing the Rare Disease List protocol, was released, explaining the mechanism for rare disease selection and outlining a future pathway for adding more diseases to the list.

New Development of Rare Disease Policy in China

According to the protocol, the jurisdiction to adjust the Rare Disease List falls in the hands of NHC. The protocol lists the following four criteria for rare disease designation: The disease has a low prevalence or incidence in China and other countries.The disease significantly impacts the patient and his or her family.There is a clear method of diagnosis. IG10013. RL33534. The Impact of China’s Policies on Global Biopharmaceutical Industry Innovation. China Prepares for Big Pharma – The Diplomat. As part of its “Made in China 2025” industrial plan, China hopes to reinvent its pharmaceutical industry. President Xi Jinping has identified his country’s reliance on foreign drug imports as a critical concern. China’s enormous population, coupled with the rise of disease and illness, make the country a prime market for pharmaceutical companies, one in which U.S. and British pharma heavyweights are increasingly investing.

Xi plans to improve the Chinese pharmaceutical industry to counter this reliance on foreign firms, to tap into the revenue generated by the Chinese market, the second largest pharmaceutical market behind the United States, and to create globally competitive firms. The “Made in China 2025” plan seeks to upgrade China’s economy through mass government investment and policy reforms.

Before this can happen, China needs pharmaceutical companies large enough to create economies of scale. The government is also moving to more quickly approve new drugs for the market.

Applications of digital technology in COVID-19 pandemic planning and response. Introduction COVID-19, an infectious disease caused by the novel severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), is a global pandemic.

Applications of digital technology in COVID-19 pandemic planning and response

With high transmissibility, a case fatality rate greater than 1%, and no effective antiviral therapy or vaccine, the mainstay of pandemic management has been containment and mitigation.1 However, despite relying on established public health principles, countries across the world have had varying degrees of success in managing the burden of COVID-19.

Strengthening Australia's life sciences sector and medical supply chain beyond COVID-19

From falsified medicines to storage mishaps: the fragile state of drug supply chains. Many people in high-income countries take it for granted that when they’re sick, the medicine they need will be available.

From falsified medicines to storage mishaps: the fragile state of drug supply chains

But global pharmaceutical supply chains are incredibly complex, with multiple manufacturing, testing and distribution sites – and an issue at any one of them can lead to delays in ongoing treatments, the use of less suitable medications or even no treatment at all for a patient. What’s more, nearly half of all medicine stock-outs are due to unknown causes. Sustainable Development Goals, by Daniel. SDG Toolkit. Sustainable Development Goals.

The coronavirus outbreak could make it quicker and easier to trial drugs. Jonathan Cotliar knew he was ahead of the curve four years ago when he joined Science 37, a company that supports virtual clinical trials conducted mostly online. The firm in Los Angeles, California, was growing slowly before March, receiving about a dozen calls a week from potential clients. But since the COVID-19 pandemic began, Science 37 has been running at fever pitch. Cotliar, the company’s chief medical officer, says Science 37 now receives hundreds of enquiries every week from potential clients, such as pharmaceutical companies, medical centres and even individual investigators.

With hospitals forming the epicentres of COVID-19 outbreaks around the world, clinical-trial participants have become reluctant to attend routine check-ups and monitoring, and health-care workers are stretched beyond their capacity. The pandemic might hasten the kind of change in clinical trials that Cotliar and Science 37 were hoping to make anyway. COVID vaccine update: Where are we? Vaccine is far off, experts say. Aussie Blockchain Prescription Solution. ScalaMed, founded by Australian doctor and former pharmaceutical executive Tal Rapke, allows patients to receive prescriptions directly from their clinician to their mobile phones. “The only person in common at the hospital, the pharmacy, the GP or the specialist is the patient.

There’s not necessarily any shared data across all of those locations,” Rapke said. “But if you can get the patient in the middle of their healthcare journey with their data, engaged with the right kind of algorithmic or AI support behind them, then you truly start creating a new healthcare future that’s oriented towards the patient.” The ScalaMed technology creates a patent-protected method to encrypt an individual’s prescription data. It’s then transported to ScalaMed’s e-prescription blockchain service through secure APIs, published to the blockchain and made available to the patient immediately via an app. “We still have a legislative requirement for paper when it comes to prescriptions in Australia. A Vision for Asia Pacific in 2050 – unlocking the benefits of personalised healthcare. We are still far away from this reality.

However, the current pandemic has forced us to take more collective responsibility and start working together to create data-driven and collective future proofed healthcare systems. Tony Estrella, Health expert, futurist and author introduces an optimistic outlook for the future in a new whitepaper ‘A Vision for Asia Pacific in 2050’. Watch his introduction to this thought experiment whitepaper here: As he mentions in the video, the success of this will rely on the application of five axioms driven by governments, society as a whole, health organisations formed through interconnected systems, individuals and clinicians.

1.Mamoshina, P. et al. Bill Gates on whether this bullish timeline for a COVID-19 vaccine is realistic: ‘There’s simply no alternative’ Bill Gates has been a steady voice in delivering a mix of good news — “we should be able to get out of this with the death numbers well short of that” — and bad news — “it is impossible to overstate the pain” — ever since the first signs of a looming pandemic emerged. The Microsoft MSFT, co-founder’s latest take is mostly an example of the former, as he laid out a timeline for a return to normalcy, which, he said, is dependent on a vaccine.

“Humankind has never had a more urgent task than creating broad immunity for coronavirus,” he wrote in a blog post on Thursday. “Realistically, if we’re going to return to normal, we need to develop a safe, effective vaccine.
