    THE NATIONAL PHARMACEUTICAL COUNCIL

    in Business

    The National Pharmaceutical Council (NPC) is a health policy research organization dedicated to the advancement of good evidence and science, and to fostering an environment in the United States that supports medical innovation.


    Founded in 1953 and supported by the nation’s major research-based biopharmaceutical companies, NPC focuses on research development, information dissemination, education and communication of the critical issues of evidence, innovation and the value of medicines for patients. The issues we select for examination and the researchers and academics we partner with position NPC as a uniquely credible and trusted voice in the biopharmaceutical research and health policy communities. Much of our research is published in peer-reviewed journals.


    NPC is working to:



    Ensure that sound evidence is recognized by independent experts, considered appropriately by private and public payers, reflected adequately in benefit designs, and incorporated into clinical practice
    Demonstrate and promote the contribution of innovative medicines to optimizing health and wellness for patients and the entire health care system through scientific analyses and fact-based communications
    Maintain a focus on the issues related to advancing the science and research aspects of the biopharmaceutical industry and preserving and improving an environment supportive of innovation.


    Our Board of Directors consists of a representative from each member company. The annual dues paid by our members make up NPC’s core budget, which funds research-based projects, ongoing educational activities and our day-to-day operations. NPC does not engage in lobbying activities.

    Whoa..What You don't Know About Vaccines, GMOs and Pharmaceutical Companies

    in Health

    The food, vaccine, drug, insurance and health industry are a multi-billion dollar enterprise. Are they more focused on profits than human health? 


    The newly released and very popular film "Bought" features exclusive interviews with the world's most acclaimed experts in research, medicine, holistic care and natural health from leading organizations such as MIT, Harvard and more.


    I have watched a lot of documentaries and sometimes they can scare folks with their "doom and gloom" message. But when I saw Bought I must admit I was pleasantly surprised and impressed. I really appreciated the tone of the movie and the "visual aids" which helped me understand the "numbers"behind this important topic. 


    I wanted to learn more about what the average person can do to empower themselves to take action agaisnt mandated vaccines, GMOs etc.  so I had a very special, behind the scenes  interview with the filmmaker of Bought, Jeff Hays. 


    If you haven't watched the film yet, then I highly encourage you to tune in. Jeff shares with us some inspiring and hopeful steps to protect you and your family. To learn more about the movie visit: http://www.boughtmovie.net/

    Pharmaguy interviews Casey Quinlan, Co-Founder at Patients for Clinical Research, journalist, author, ePatient and patient advocate, about Patients Included: A Charter for Conferences and how the pharmaceutical industry can help ensure more patients are able to attend and participate in patient-relevant healthcare conferences.


    "Patient centricity" is all the rage these days among pharmaceutical industry conference attendees and speakers. It is even becoming more common for actual patients to be part of the faculty/speakers and/or attendees of these conferences.

    The discussion focused on the following Charter clauses copied from the patientsincluded.org site:



    Patients or caregivers with experience relevant to the conference's central theme actively participate in the design and planning of the event, including the selection of themes, topics and speakers.
    Patients or caregivers with experience of the issues addressed by the event participate in its delivery, and appear in its physical audience.
    Travel and accommodation expenses for patients or carers participating in the advertised programme are paid in full, in advance.
    Scholarships are provided by the conference organisers to allow patients or carers affected by the relevant issues to attend as delegates.

    Can't Sleep? Ayurveda Offers Non-pharmaceutical Solutions

    in Health

    In Ayurveda, we say that poor nutrition is the mother of all disease... and Insomnia is the father!  


    Many people today have simply gotten used to being sleep deprived and think it is normal. Meanwhile, the body, mind, emotions and spirit suffer from not getting adequate rest.


    Today, Nick and Dr. Joanna will discuss the way that Ayurveda views insomnia and how knowing your unique constitution as well as other contributing imbalances that can help or hinder your ability to sleep well. 


    In the western medicine treatment model, (treat the symptom, not the cause), Insomnia is usually treated with toxic medications that can become addicting or cause other side effects (that will be treated with yet another drug).  And did you know that one of the side effects of certain medications is that they can cause that symptom that they are designed to treat? So why take a toxic drug when you can treat the problem with some simple, yet effective lifestyle practices based on a system of ancient wisdom that helps you live in harmony with the cyclic rhythms of nature rather than against them. An Ayurvedic lifestyle can have you feeling better in no time and the practices are deceptively simple yet impactful.


    Find us at www.thekalyanacentre.com / www.drjoannacarmichael.com 484-412-8815  If you have learned to live with insomnia or any other health concern that is not in alignment with being in perfect health & wellbeing, give us a call and receive 20% off your initial consultation with Nick or Joanna when you mention this show!

    Big Data & Big Pharma: How Analytics Might Save Your Life

    in Technology

    Long before the tech sector christened almost every type of analytics as big data, the pharmaceutical and biotech industries were heavily reliant on analytics to develop new, safer drugs, and to produce those drugs more efficiently. Big data plays a key role in building upon what we have learned about the human genome, in managing effective clinical trials, in long-term monitoring of drug applicability in real-world healthcare, and in managing the manufacturing process.


    Consider what the use of big data in pharma and biotech companies means to you as a consumer. It means getting the right drug to the right patient at the right time for the right condition. Now, consider what you can learn as a business person -- no matter what industry you are in -- from the analytics techniques, and the data management and data mining concepts pioneered by big pharma.


    Jim Baxter, head of the life sciences practice at Collaborative Consulting, joins All Analytics Radio on Tuesday, May 19, at 2 pm EDT, for a discussion of how pharma and biotech companies finding benefits in big data analytics.


    In this show you will learn:



    How use of big data analytics have evolved in the drug and medical device industries
    What types of benefits life sciences companies are finding through use of analytics
    What big data in pharma means to you as a possible patient
    What the future holds for use of analytics in life sciences
    What lessons big pharma can teach analytics professionals and decision makers about use of big data in their own business environments

    Combatting PharmaPhobia: Conflict-of-Interest Myth Busting!

    in Business

    PharmaGuy interviews Thomas P. Stossel, M.D., visiting scholar at the American Enterprise Institute for Public Policy Research, about his new book, PharmaPhobia, and his call to action against the "Conflict of Interest Movement."


    In PHARMAPHOBIA: How the Conflict of Interest Myth Undermines American Medical Innovation (Rowman & Littlefield, April 2015), Tom Stossel describes how an ideological crusade, stretching over the last quarter century, has used distortion and flawed logic to make medical innovation even harder in a misguided pursuit of theoretical professional purity.


    Questions/Topics of Discussion



    What is the "conflict-of-interest myth" (you also refer to the "conflict-of-interest movement" and the "conflict-of-interest narrative")?
    What regulations have been adopted as a result of this conflict-of-interest narrative?
    Are there legitimate conflict-of-interest concerns that should be addressed by policymakers?
    How have bureaucrats, reporters, politicians, and lawyers benefitted by attacking the medical products industry?
    What solutions and reforms do you advocate?
