The European Commission’s DG Grow has requested separate Opinions from its Scientific Committee on Consumer Safety (SCCS) on the safety of hair dye resorcinol and cosmetics preservative propylparaben.The requests aim to establish the maximum concentrations considered safe for specific uses of the substances in light of the data provided and concerns related their potential endocrine disrupting properties.
ImmuPharma PLC has hailed the “positive and proactive” progress made by it and partner Avion Pharmaceuticals that will see a second phase III trial of the latter’s drug for lupus get underway “as soon as possible” this year.The pair will meet America’s Food & Drug Administration sometime this quarter to seek guidance for an optimised study of Lupuzor.

Addressing the Replication and Reproducibility Crisis in R&D Organizations

We will address this head-on in our first High Impact Webinar. We will discuss data and processes as an asset. And yes, I said processes! The world is missing the boat on the value of captured, versioned and reproducible processes with regards to data quality, data integrity, and the REPLICATION CRISIS today in Science! We know the pain in Tech Transfer. We have uncovered statistics that range from 11-50% of scientific research reported in journals that can be replicated.
A negative outcome of this is the lack of Model Quality Data (MQD). Without MQD many of the Predictive and Suggestive Science approaches will fall short. This is costing the world not only billions of dollars every year but missed opportunities, discoveries and ultimately the quality of life for millions of beings. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Replication_crisis You are invited to a Zoom webinar.
