Alfa Chemistry Testing Lab Releases Nano-products Safety Evaluation Service
Earlier this month in May, 2020, Alfa Chemistry Testing Lab, a professional testing and analysis organization, announced to have released nano-products safety evaluation services for companies and agencies that are engaged with the development and application of nano-products. Nanomaterials exhibit unique physical and chemical properties in contrast with engineered materials. As more nanotechnology products have moved into the marketplace, especially in the public health-related areas such as food, cosmetics or drug, there is a growing need to assess the potential risks that exposure to nanomaterials might bring to human health and the environment. “Considering this, we decide to offer a wide range of safety evaluation services for nano-products at biological level, cellular level, molecular level and environmental level,” says a senior scientist from Alfa Chemistry Testing Lab.

Circular economy and the Corona crisis
Circular economy and the Corona crisis
The Corona crisis forces us to reflect. The likely long break in our society necessitates unprecedented interventions and changes. This situation may well be crucial for the transition to a circular economy. LabMakelaar Benelux B.V. has been committed to a circular economy for many years. With the purchase and sale of high-quality second-hand lab equipment, furniture and consumables, we help other companies to also promote the circular economy and to do business in a socially responsible manner. We do this with LabMakelaar.com and Laboratorium.shop. Since November last year we have also added LabForRent. LabForRent.nl is a platform that helps prevent the vacancy of valuable lab space and production facilities. In the Benelux there is a clear overcapacity. In the context of the circular economy, it is important that these vacant spaces are filled with start-ups, for example. Because of these three branches within LabMakelaar Benelux B.V. we can offer a total package

Huateng Pharma Develpoed Kinds Of Intermediates For Carfilzomib
Huateng Pharma Develpoed Kinds Of Intermediates For Carfilzomib
Carfilzomib (marketed under the trade name Kyprolis, developed by Onyx Pharmaceuticals) is an anti-cancer drug acting as a selective proteasome inhibitor. Chemically, it is a tetrapeptide epoxyketone and an analog of epoxomicin. Carfilzomib is derived from epoxomicin, a natural product that was shown by the laboratory of Craig Crews at Yale University to inhibit the proteasome. The Crews laboratory subsequently invented a more specific derivative of epoxomicin named YU101, which was licensed to Proteolix, Inc. Scientists at Proteolix invented a new, distinct compound that had potential use as a drug in humans, known as carfilzomib. Proteolix advanced carfilzomib to multiple Phase 1 and 2 clinical trials, including a pivotal phase 2 clinical trial designed to seek accelerated approval. Clinical trials for carfilzomib continue under Onyx Pharmaceuticals, which acquired Proteolix in 2009. Carfilzomib covalently irreversibly binds to and inhibits the chymotrypsin-like

Biochempeg developed a series of PEG compounds used for Semaglutide
Biochempeg developed a series of PEG compounds used for Semaglutide
Type 2 diabetes is the most common form of diabetes. Semaglutide is an agonist of glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptor that is developed to treat type 2 diabetes. It reduces blood sugar via increasing the production of insulin. Biochempeg has developed and can supply some key intermediates of Semaglutide. Semaglutide(trade names: Rybelsus,Ozempic) is a medication for the treatment of type 2 diabetes. It was discovered in 2012, by a team of researchers at Novo Nordisk as a longer-acting alternative to liraglutide. It was given a brand name Ozempic. Clinical trials were started in 2015, and phase 3 was completed in 2016. Semaglutide acts like human glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) so that it increases insulin secretion, thereby increasing sugar metabolism. It is distributed as a metered subcutaneous injection in a prefilled pen. One of its advantages over other antidiabetic drugs is that it has a long duration of action, thus, only once-a-week injection is sufficient.

Pharmapack expert recommends holistic approach to sustainability
Encouragingly, the industry might be 30% along its sustainability journey, but greater interoperability needed Paris, 18 May 2020: In an in-depth review of the market and having evaluated the collective developments from this year’s Pharmapack event, Gregor Anderson – MD of Pharmacentric Solutions – offers a positive appraisal of pharma’s drive towards sustainability. “I am really encouraged by the massive strides we have made this year. As an industry, we are no longer paying lip service to sustainability and wherein once there might have just been a single dedicated employee, there are now entire teams looking at improving methods and exploring life-cycle impact” commented Anderson. One of the big differences identified is the increased sharing across the industry and how actively involved the entire supply chain is in the discussion. Both the suppliers of packaging and devices are working more closely with big pharma and this is leading to accelerated development. The next stage is interoperability, as for the industry to be able to truly meet sustainability goals it will

Demand for immunity products to be sustained long-term say SIRIO
Movement towards healthy lifestyles and preventative supplements the lasting behavioural change post COVID-19 11 May, 2020: SIRIO Europe (Ayanda) – the European headquarters of the SIRIO Group, a global nutraceutical contract development, innovation and manufacturing organization (CDiMO) – says considerable worldwide demand for immunity products has accelerated in recent months due coronavirus, but it is also likely to deliver a permanent ‘new norm’ of higher growth. “Already in Europe, we have seen a significant spike in the demand for immunity products across the main economies. In fact, recent weekly data from Euromonitor shows an increased purchasing of Vitamin C and Multivitamins by consumers, with unusual levels of stockouts present throughout Europe. While production and supply chains have been pretty robust during lockdowns, we have still seen large stock shortages. This is particularly surprising, as we are now approaching summer, which is not traditionally a peak period for these products. Anticipating a surge, we secured a very large inventory of ingredients to ensure
