faulty BRCA1 gene.
Researchers at the Walter and
Eliza Hall Institute believe the drug
denosumab, usually used to treat
osteoporosis, could switch off the
culprit cells before they go on to
produce breast tumours.
The researchers concluded that
denosumab injections could be
used in women with a high risk
of breast cancer as a preventive
measure.
Were optimistic that if it works
it would be the sort of strategy that
would help young women buy time
before they need to consider the
issues of mastectomy, Professor
Geoff Lindeman from the institute
told the ABC.
Researchers at NYU Langone
Medical Center are planning to
conduct a clinical trial to further
examine the changes in breast
tissue when a dose of denosumab
is administered.

AMR - whos responsible?


All health professionals incuding
pharmacists, as well as consumers,
have a responsibility to work
together to reduce Australias
dependence on antibiotics and
resultant increase in antimicrobial
resistance (AMR) according to the
Pharmaceutical Society of Australia
(PSA).
With the recently released
Antimicrobial Use and Resistance
in Australia (AURA) report showing
Australia lagging behind other
nations on managing AMR in
the community, the PSA said
pharmacists can play a fundamental
role in antimicrobial stewardship in
Australia.
PSA national president Joe
Demarte said, The pharmacy
profession in partnership with the
Federal Government, other health
practitioners and consumers, must
make an effective and sustained
contribution to a national response
to antimicrobial resistance.
Advice about the use of
antibiotics must be disseminated to
consumers, in addition to antibiotic
awareness weeks and other timelimited campaigns.
Demarte pointed out that many
people suffering from flu or
respiratory problems may think
a treatment with antibiotics is
needed.
However pharmacists can give
the proper counselling for these

health problems, ensuring that


patients have a good understanding
of their illness and realistic
expectations of its progression, he
said.
Demarte added that the PSA is
continuing to work closely with the
Federal Government to strengthen
consumer awareness, to enhance
communication between all
stakeholders and education for
pharmacists as well as to encourage
increases in vaccination rates to
prevent infections.

FDA boosts generics


In WHAT may prove to be a
significant precedent, the US Food
and Drug Administration (FDA)
has won a case in the US Supreme
Court where in an attempt to limit
drug prices, according to a report
from Modern Healthcare.
The Supreme Court decided
Monday in a patent case not
actually relating to drugs, but
potentially precedential, to affirm
a lower court ruling allowing the
U.S. Patent and Trademark Offices
Patent Trial and Appeal Board to
continue using a broader standard
than federal courts when it comes
to interpreting patent claims.
In 2011, Congress began allowing
patent challengers to take their
fight before the board, rather than
to federal court, as an alternative
to costly, time-consuming court
battles.
The result may have implications
across many industries wherever
patents and innovation matter, the
article said.

Minimal opt-out MHR


Less than 2% of the 971,000
people involved in the two trial
areas for the opt-out version of My
Health Record (MHR) have actually
chosen not to keep a digital record
of their health, according to a
report from Pulse+IT.
The two trial areas are Far North
Queensland and the NSW Blue
Mountains regions.
Uptake of the opt-in model across
Australia has been dismally low,
forcing the need to experiment
with the opt-out model in this pilot
program (PD 29 Oct 15).
Both the Guild and the PSA have
been suppportive of the scheme
(PD 30 Oct 15).

Cough & cold sales up

Perhaps not surprisingly, sales


of throat lozenges and tissues
consistently peak in winter months,
according to latest findings from
Roy Morgan Research.
In the 12 months to Mar 2016,
36.2% of Australians 14 years
and older bought tissues/paper
handkerchiefs and 9.0% bought
throat lozenges/cough lollies in an
average four-week period.
These figures have remained
relatively stable over the last few
years, the report said.
Quarterly figures paint a different
picture with more Australians
buying tissues and cough lollies
during the Jul-Sep period than any
other quarter.
For example in 2015, 14.0% of
Aussies bought cough lozenges and
39.7% bought tissues in an average
four-week period during the Jul-Sep
quarter, as opposed to 5.6% and
32.0% respectively in the Jan-Mar
quarter.
The research showed that
conversely, the proportion of
people purchasing cough lollies
drops steeply during the Jan-Mar
quarter while sales of tissues also
slump at this time of the year,
although the contrast is not as
dramatic.
The data also revealed that at
any time of the year, a higher
proportion of women than men
buy these products, and during the
peak Jul-Sep quarter, this pattern is
especially apparent.
During this period, 16.1% of
women and 11.8% of men bought
throat lozenges in an average four
weeks, the gender skew being

Diabetes AD link
University of Aberdeen
has revealed new links between
diabetes and Alzheimers Disease.
It found drugs used to treat
diabetes could also be used to treat
Alzheimers Disease, and vice versa.
Further to this it showed
Alzheimers can lead to diabetes, as
opposed to diabetes occurring first.
The paper, published
Diabetologia, found for the first
time that dementia-related
complications within the brain can
also lead to changes in glucose.
Until now, we always assumed
that obese people get type 2
diabetes and then are more likely
to get dementia we now show
that actually it also works the other
way around, head researcher
Professor Bettina Plat said.
The good news is that there are
a number of new drugs which we
are testing to see if they would
reverse both Alzheimers and
diabetes, Plat continued.

PHARMAC fund fail


Following feedback from
member pharmacies on the
consultation around margin
funding to community pharmacy
in New Zealand, the Pharmacy
Guild of NZ has submitted to the
Programme Director, Community
Pharmacy Services Agreement,
that PHARMAC is fundamentally
underfunded.
Repeated reduction of margins for
community pharmacy businesses
with the downward pressure
on drug prices has created an
unsustainable ROI environment for
pharmacies procuring and carrying
stock for medicines supplied, said
the submission.
Without any additional funding
from DHB, no solution will address
this underfunding, said the report.

DISPENSARY
CORNER
biodegradable coffins are
one thing, but dissolving the dead
and pouring them into the town
sewers is quite another.
This unconventional method is
being used as an environmentally
friendly option for disposing of
the dead by Canadian funeral firm
Aquagreen Dispositions.
Apparently local officials are
keeping a close eye on the
company which is using an
alkaline solution to dissolve
bodies in a heated and
pressurised container (pictured
below).
The skeleton is ground into a
powder and given to loved ones
while the left over liquid is filtered
and sent to the towns sewage
treatment system.
You come in by water, and you
leave by water, says business
owner Dale Hilton.
Its green, all the way around.
He reckons its the way of the
future - dust to dust.

IF THERES one place what you


wear makes an impression, it
would have to be in court.
If youre appearing to plead your
innocence on cannabis possession
charges its probably best not
to wear a shirt sporting a promarijuana motif.
But thats exactly the move a
25-year-old man in Malta pulled
this week.
His defence that the drugs and

werent actually his own, didnt
support his case either.
He was denied bail because he
