Drug of the week

Drug of the Week

Protein Epitope Mimetics (PEM)


Protein epitope mimetics pem

  • PEM are medium sized (0.7-2 kDa), fully synthetic cyclic peptide-like molecules that mimic the two most relevant secondary structure motifs involved in Protein-Protein Interactions (PPIs): The ß-hairpin and the α-helix.

  • Hence, PEM molecules can be viewed as functional minimizations of proteins. PEM are among the most potent and selective molecules known to modulate PPIs, GPCRs with large ligand-binding domains and enzymes. PEM Technology is, therefore, well suited to discover and optimize drug candidates that interfere with targets difficult to modulate with classical small molecule approaches

Protein EpitopeMimetics (PEM)


One type antibiotic pol7080

  • POL7080 is a Pseudomonas specific antibiotic with a novel mode of action, (The antibiotics work by deactivating a protein vital for the formation of the bacteria's outer cell membrane.)

  • POL7080 is the first of a new class of antibiotics derived from the PEM Technology platform. In preclinical studies the compound was highly active on a broad panel of clinical isolates including multi-drug resistant Pseudomonas bacteria with outstanding in vivo efficacy in septicemia, lung and thigh infection models. Its novel mode of action has been published in Science

Why important

  • Researchers from a privately held Swiss biotech company Polyphor and the University of Zurich said the potential medicines are effective against a type of bacteria known as "gram-negative," and offer hope for new treatments for serious and often life-threatening infections, (specifically those that cause lung infections).

  • A report in December found that gram-negative bacteria account for around 63 percent of infections in hospital intensive care units. Experts commenting on that study said they feared resistance among gram-negative bugs was rising while the number of medicines to treat them was shrinking.

  • Drug of the future?

Should birth control be available to women

(16 years old or older) without a prescription?


Legislation

  • Pharmacy Access Amendment Act: would give the Board of Pharmacy and the Board of Medicine authorization to set up guidelines for consumers to pick up birth control without going to the doctors office (proposed bill as of February 2011)

  • Would allow pharmacists to prescribe birth control to certain women

Legislation


  • “Ph Pharmacy and the Board of Medicine authorization to set up guidelines for consumers to pick up birth control without going to the doctors office (proposed bill as of February 2011)armacists are extraordinarily overeducated for what they do on a day-in and day-out basis. There is a lot of capacity for a pharmacist to do more than they do.”

  • Logically, most pharmacists, who possess skills far beyond putting pills in bottles should be more than capable of asking a patient questions and assessing whether hypertension, a history of heart disease, and other factors should prevent that patient from going on birth control. Under this bill, they would do just that, and write or not write a birth control prescription.


  • Expand access to contraception Pharmacy and the Board of Medicine authorization to set up guidelines for consumers to pick up birth control without going to the doctors office (proposed bill as of February 2011)

  • Conserve valuable resources and reduce costs

  • Greater health care options for thousands of women

  • Prevent unnecessary doctors visits in an already overcrowded healthcare system
