How Does the FDA Approve a Drug?
Have you ever taken an over the counter medication for heartburn? How about an antibiotic for an ear infection? At some point pretty much all of us have visited a pharmacy to pick up a drug, but likely didn't consider where these drugs come from or how they are made. Whether you're talking about something for seasonal allergies or your grandparent's arthritis medication, the act of bringing a drug to market is long and complex. I'm not an expert, but HCT intern Rachel Hoffman is, and with her help, that's the topic of this week's Healthcare Triage.

Motif Bio completes rolling submission of NDA for new antibiotic Iclaprim
Graham Lumsden, chief executive of Motif Bio Plc (LON:MTFB), tells Proactive's Andrew Scott they've completed a rolling submission of a New Drug Application (NDA) to the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for their new antibiotic Iclaprim. Lumsden says upon acceptance of the filing of the NDA by the FDA, Iclaprim will receive priority review - a review period of six months instead of the standard ten months.
Superbug infection resistant to all FDA-approved antibiotics
WASHINGTON (WKRC) - A strain of drug resistant superbugs may be spreading more widely than previously thought. That's the result of a chilling new study of "CRE." The CDC said it caused an estimated 9,300 infections and 600 deaths per year. It generally spreads from patient to patient in hospitals and long term care facilities. There are usually no signs of any symptoms. The bug killed a Nevada woman over the summer of 2016. In her case, the bug was resistant to all 26 antibiotics available in the U.S.

What the FDA Antibiotic Rule Means
A farmer who has a sick cow or hog at times needs antibiotics to regain the animal’s health. As of Jan. 1, 2017, farmers need a veterinarian’s approval to use antibiotics on livestock. That’s because some ag producers were using antibiotics to speed growth of their livestock, in order to get the animals to market quicker.

FDA to phase out antibiotics in animal feed
The Food and Drug Administration announced a plan last week to phase antibiotics out of animal feed, citing growing public health concerns. Experts say humans are consuming too many antibiotics, leading to an increase in antibiotic-resistant strains of bacteria. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says that every year 2 million people get sick from drug-resistant superbugs, and 22,000 of those people die. The FDA is targeting antimicrobials added to feed to fatten animals up and add more meat. RT's Meghan Lopez tells us how the FDA plans to phase out the use of antibiotics in livestock, which makes up 80 percent of all antibiotic use.

What Did FDA Say About Antibiotics in Food Animals
On Dec. 11, 2013, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced important steps to ensure the judicious use of antibiotics in food animals as one approach to addressing antimicrobial resistance in human medicine. In an effort to clarify what this ruling means to livestock producers and other industry professionals, members of the University of Illinois Extension Service will offer a webinar to address the new rules on Tues., Jan. 28 from noon to 1 p.m. The discussion will cover what the new steps mean to the livestock industry, what they don't mean, and how producers and others should respond. The webinar will be presented by professor emeritus James Pettigrew and professor Hans Stein of the Department of Animal Sciences and professor Larry Firkins of the College of Veterinary Medicine.. "This announcement is not a surprise; it has been anticipated for several months," Pettigrew said. Pettigrew explained that while the FDA's approach to antibiotic use in food animals had been published previously, the new documents issued this month describe the implementation of that approach. "The documents address only those antibiotics considered important in human medicine, which are all of them except the widely-used ionophores and a few others," Pettigrew said. "The new rules apply only to antibiotics used in feed or drinking water." The core of the FDA's approach includes: 1. No use of these antibiotics for production purposes (to improve growth rate or feed efficiency). 2. All uses of these antibiotics must be under veterinary oversight. 3. Disease prevention is specifically recognized as an approved judicious use of antibiotics.

'The Lyme Wars' -- Investigating a Public Health Crisis (Full documentary) - NBC 23-27/10-2017
Why the response to this public health crisis is still in disarray -- as patients pay the price. Brooklyn teenager Julia Bruzzese never imagined she’d be going to high school in a wheelchair. Back in 2016 12-year-old Julia Bruzzese of New York, in a wheelchair from Lyme disease, was thrust into the national spotlight in September, when Pope Francis picked her out of an airport crowd and blessed her. https://www.lymedisease.org/julia-bruzzese-papal-blessing/ New Jersey cop Margie Raimondi still can’t believe she’s not on patrol. http://www.nj.com/morris/index.ssf/2013/11/court_morris_park_police_officer_entitled_to_compensation_over_lyme_disease.html Manhattan singer-songwriter Dana Parish feels lucky to be alive. http://www.bayarealyme.org/blog/story/dana-parish/ From different walks of life, all three say they are victims of Lyme disease, an often debilitating bacterial infection spread through the bite of infected ticks. The News 4 I-Team found they’ve also been caught, to varying degrees, in the middle of wars raging in the medical community and government over what’s become a public health crisis. While approximately 30,000 cases of Lyme disease are reported annually by state health departments, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) estimates “the number of people diagnosed with Lyme disease each year in the United States is around 300,000” – with most cases in the northeastern U.S. Lyme is the fastest growing vector-borne infectious disease in the country. Despite the surging number of cases, there’s bitter disagreement in the medical community over who actually has Lyme disease – and how to treat it. THE DEBATE “People called us crazy. People called me crazy,” 14-year-old Bruzzese says of her odyssey through the medical world, when doctors were unable to find a reason for the numbness in her legs, and her fevers, joint pain and fatigue. “They would try to convince me I was making it up.” Not all ticks can transmit Lyme; some can transmit other potentially dangerous infections as well. Use our interactive tick identifier to see which insects -- and which symptoms -- may be cause for concern. http://www.nbcnewyork.com/news/local/Tick-Indentifier-Lyme-Disease-Infection-Interactive-Graphic-Grid-450593253.html Doctors also ruled out Lyme disease because her blood tests did not detect Borrelia burgdorferi, the bacteria that causes it. “The science is there that the testing is unreliable,” says Dr. Richard Horowitz, who eventually became Julia’s doctor and determined through clinical diagnosis that she was suffering from what’s commonly called chronic Lyme. “Lyme is known as the great imitator. It can look like lupus. It can look like rheumatoid arthritis. It can look like multiple sclerosis. It can cause psychiatric symptoms.” It’s a view shared by the 650 doctors who belong to the International Lyme and Associated Diseases Society (ILADS). The group believes Lyme disease is hard to diagnose and treat, can hide in the body and often requires treatment with long-term antibiotics. But much of the medical community scoffs at that. Do I Have Lyme Disease? And Other FAQs https://www.nbcnewyork.com/news/local/Lyme-Disease-Frequently-Asked-Questions-CDC-449096163.html The Infectious Diseases Society of America (IDSA), which has 11,000 doctors in its ranks, says Lyme disease can be diagnosed with tests approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and most patients can be cured in 10 to 28 days with antibiotics. Long-term antibiotic treatment, IDSA says, can be damaging to patients. IDSA’s guidelines, which are followed by the CDC, say patients like Bruzzese who do not test positive with approved tests are suffering from a “different or new illness” –- not Lyme disease. “In terms of the patients I see referred to me for chronic Lyme, a lot of the patients don’t have any evidence of ever having had Lyme,” says Dr. Gary Wormser, chief of infectious diseases at New York Medical College and founder of its Lyme Disease Diagnostic Center. He was also a lead author of the IDSA guidelines. “If you’ve been sick for months and months the [FDA-approved] lab tests should be positive,” he says, noting that patients who test positive and receive antibiotic treatment can have long-term problems, known as Post-Treatment Lyme Disease Syndrome. 11 Tips to Prevent Lyme Disease https://www.nbcnewyork.com/news/local/11-Ways-You-Can-Prevent-and-Treat-Lyme-Disease-450593413.html NEXT STEPS One thing doctors agree on is the need for more research and funding for Lyme disease.

How Much Are Antibiotics Used in Your Meat?
The meat industry pumps livestock with antibiotics. How much are they putting in, and why is this a growing concern? Is The Future Of Antibiotics At The Bottom Of The Ocean?: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xqj9QkcvUgo Read More: Antibiotic Use In Meat Is Soaring http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2015/03/21/antibiotics-meat_n_6916932.html “Soaring demand for meat across the world has caused a major uptick in the amount of antimicrobial drugs in pork, beef and poultry, according to a new study published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.” Antibiotics in Livestock: F.D.A. Finds Use Is Rising http://www.nytimes.com/2014/10/03/science/antibiotics-in-livestock-fda-finds-use-is-rising.html?_r=0 “The amount of antibiotics sold for use in livestock rose substantially in recent years, according to the Food and Drug Administration, a pattern that experts said was troubling given the efforts to battle antibiotic resistance in humans.” Is Your Meat Safe? http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/pages/frontline/shows/meat/safe/overview.html “Ranchers and farmers have been feeding antibiotics to the animals we eat since they discovered decades ago that small doses of antibiotics administered daily would make most animals gain as much as 3 percent more weight than they otherwise would. In an industry where profits are measured in pennies per animal, such weight gain was revolutionary.” U.S. meat industry bought more human antibiotics to 2013: FDA http://www.reuters.com/article/2015/04/10/us-food-health-antibiotics-idUSKBN0N11MC20150410 “Sales of medically important antibiotics in the United States for use in livestock jumped by 20 percent between 2009 and 2013, federal regulators said on Friday, although recent statements by producers suggest those figures could be dropping.” Antibiotic/Antimicrobial Resistance http://www.cdc.gov/drugresistance/ “Antibiotics and similar drugs, together called antimicrobial agents, have been used for the last 70 years to treat patients who have infectious diseases.” ____________________ DNews is dedicated to satisfying your curiosity and to bringing you mind-bending stories & perspectives you won't find anywhere else!
