Partnering with the digestive health community, the International Foundation for Gastrointestinal Disorders pledges to raise awareness and support of patients with chronic gastrointestinal illnesses so they know that they are not alone.

This #GivingTuesday, the International Foundation for Gastrointestinal Disorders (IFFGD) will celebrate giving by joining the #GivingTuesday movement on November 27th to raise awareness and support for everyone affected by a chronic gastrointestinal illness.

“Being a part of the #GivingTuesday movement provides us with the opportunity to share our story of why we began and how we will continue to serve adults and children with chronic GI disorders,” said Ceciel T. Rooker, President of IFFGD. “It allows us to share our goals beyond the reach of our immediate community and encourage people to support a cause they can believe in.”

There are many ways to join and support IFFGD’s #GivingTuesday initiative. Share IFFGD’s #GivingTuesday message with your social network, start a fundraiser on Facebook, make a purchase using AmazonSmile, sign up for the eNewsletter, or donate at www.iffgd.org. Ms. Rooker added, “Monetary support is needed for a non-profit to succeed; however, giving is not only about the dollars you contribute. It’s also about using your voice to help raise awareness about our mission and the patients, families, and care givers that we support.”

The National Medical Products Administration of China officially issued the Guiding Opinions on Building Information Technology-Enabled Drug Traceability Systems in Nov. 2018. The introduction of this Guiding Opinions marks the return of the drug traceability system after the electronic supervision code system was halted in 2016. Tracking and source tracing of information in pharmaceutical production, circulation, and use, etc. through information-technology-enabled means to form an organic whole will become a development trend of the industry in the future. Chinese pharmaceutical enterprises have attached greater importance to the improvement of enterprise information management as successive favorable policies are introduced.

P-MEC China 2019, a grand international party for the industry exchange and cooperation, and common development in the pharmaceutical field that is hosted by China Chamber of Commerce for Import & Export of Medicines & Health Products (CCCMHPIE) and UBM EMEA and co-sponsored by Shanghai UBM Sinoexpo International Exhibition Co., Ltd. (UBM Sinoexpo), will “set sail” intelligently on June 18-20, 2019 at Shanghai New International Expo Centre. The exhibition will further upgrade and optimize the Pharma Automation & Information Zone first launched in 2018 – it will be located in Hall N1 to co-locate with global leading pharmaceutical equipment manufacturers. The “Automation and Informatization Forum” will also be held concurrently, to provide pharmaceutical enterprises and pharmaceutical equipment enterprises with an efficient platform for display, exchange, cooperation, and learning.

To help the Chinese pharmaceutical producers welcome the new era of intelligent production

Tang Jiliang, a former researcher of Shanghai Institute of Pharmaceutical Industry, said in an interview, “The real intelligent manufacturing can effectively shorten product development, increase production efficiency, improve product quality, and reduce resource and energy consumption. All those advantages are what traditional pharmaceutical industry lacks and urgently needs. In the coming years, intelligent manufacturing will become a development trend of the global pharmaceutical industry that serves as a part of the manufacturing industry.”

P-MEC China is a prestigious event of the pharmaceutical engineering and machinery industry in China and Asia-Pacific region. The host, in order to accurately show the current situation of pharmaceutical automation and informatization in China and assist pharmaceutical enterprises to achieve compliant and efficient development, will make every effort to increase promotion of the Pharma Automation & Information Zone in 2019, so as to attract industry top enterprises to join. The zone will cover three aspects: system integration (providing overall project solutions and implementation schemes), automatic products (robots, manipulators, mechanical transmission products, AGV automatic logistics equipment and systems, mechanical lifting and handling equipment, packaging and sorting products, sensors, controllers, inverters, and instruments and valves, etc.), and information system (MES, ERP system, cGMP management system, CaaS, IDC-internet data center, and industrial big data service), to give visitors a close look at the leading techniques in the global intelligent manufacturing field.

To focus on the pharmaceutical intelligent manufacturing and achieve upgrading and transformation of traditional industry

Besides the product display, there will be a 1.5-day “Automation and Informatization Forum” held in the Pharma Automation & Information Zone, to directly touch upon core elements of pharmaceutical intelligent manufacturing. The host will invite international top technology providers and representatives of Chinese leading pharmaceutical enterprises, to share and discuss the most popular information applications presently in use as well as automatic production process upgrading, bringing visitors a deluge of intelligent knowledge. The forum will cover fascinating topics including “Multi-place Coordinated Production of Pharmaceutical Enterprises based on Digitalization and Informatization”, “From R&D to Production–How to Largely Increase Efficiency through Transparent and Complete Information Data”, “A Focus on Pharma 4.0–What Do We Lack for Achieving Intelligent Pharma?”, and “How to Achieve Robustness Improvement of the Production Process through Perfection of Data Integrity”.

What P-MEC China 2019 will bring is not only the application of global intelligent technology in the pharmaceutical industry, but also an important step in leading the Chinese and even Asian pharmaceutical industry towards comprehensive intelligent manufacturing.

CSA Medical’s truFreeze® Spray Cryotherapy Highlighted at New York Society for Gastrointestinal Endoscopy Annual Me eting 2018

Spray Cryotherapy Ablation procedure shared “live” and in real time demonstrates the use of Rapid AV Catheter in Esophageal Cancer

CSA Medical announced the first live case highlighting the use of the company’s truFreeze® Spray Cryotherapy in a patient with esophageal cancer that was performed yesterday during a Live Case presentation at the 42nd Annual New York Course of the New York Society for Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (NYSGE). Vanessa M. Shami, MD, professor of gastroenterology at the University of Virginia Medical Center, successfully performed the procedure which was streamed live on December 13, 2018.

truFreeze utilizes the extreme cold of liquid nitrogen (-196 C) to ablate diseased tissue, including cancer, causing instant cell death. Together with a 16 Fr. CryoDecompression Tube, clinicians are able to get into constricted spaces, a characteristic of esophageal cancer. Moreover, truFreeze does not require the catheter to touch the tissue, enabling the treatment of nodular disease and unique morphologies.

“The inability to swallow and eat a normal diet significantly decreases the quality of life for patients with esophageal cancer, and can result in malnutrition,” said Dr. Shami. “I recommend spray cryotherapy ablation to many of my esophageal cancer patients because it penetrates deeper than other ablation therapies without the scarring and post-procedural pain associated with radiofrequency burning or balloon ablation. The ability to perform the procedure as an outpatient therapy that allows patients to go home the same day provides significant quality of life benefits to a population that may be suffering from a range of health challenges.”

The patient, in his 90s, had a recurrent tumor and is not a candidate for surgery. He opted for spray cryotherapy ablation of the tumor based on data demonstrating that this approach could improve his ability to swallow and eat a more normal diet without the foreign body sensation associated with stents. To date, the patient has undergone two treatments approximately one month apart and was able to return home the same day without the need for narcotics. Additionally, he did not report any noticeable side effects following each procedure.

“truFreeze spray cryotherapy is rigorously tested and widely adopted and is the only FDA-cleared therapy proven to treat the entire esophageal disease spectrum, including esophageal cancer. For the patient, there is also data that supports spray cryotherapy resulting in less pain than other ablative therapies,” said Wendelin Maners, CSA’s President, truFreeze Business. “Dr. Shami’s live procedure underscored not only truFreeze’s ease of use, but also the important quality of life improvements that spray cryotherapy can achieve for this patient population. We hope that today’s demonstration will remind gastroenterologists to incorporate truFreeze into their treatment algorithm for both Barrett’s esophagus and esophageal cancer patients.”
