Eine Hoffnung weniger für übergewichtige Patienten: Sistierung der Zulassung von Rimonabant [Acomplia]

Aufgrund eines Entscheids des Ausschusses für Humanarzneimittel (CHMP) der 
Europäischen Arzneimittelagentur EMA wurde die Zulassung von Rimonabant [Acomplia] in der europäischen 
Union ab 23. Oktober 2008 bis auf weiteres sistiert. In der Folge wurde die Zulassung von Rimonabant [Acomplia] auch in der Schweiz sistiert.  Rimonabant [Acomplia] war in der Schweiz seit März 2007 zugelassen als Zusatztherapie zu einer leicht hypokalorischen Diät und zu einer Bewegungstherapie für die Behandlung von adiposen Patienten (BMI  >

  • Multi-omics approach offers new insights into peanut allergy severity December 13, 2019
    Researchers at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai have identified novel genes associated with the severity of peanut allergy, as well as ways in which these genes interact with other genes during allergic reactions.
  • DNA tests make fun holiday gifts, but beware of the hype December 13, 2019
    You've likely heard about direct-to-consumer DNA testing kits. In the past few years, at-home genetic testing has been featured in the lyrics of chart-topping songs, and has helped police solve decades-old cold cases, including identifying the Golden State Killer in California.
  • Research reveals how muscles talk to the brain to regulate feeding behavior December 13, 2019
    The brain determines when it is time to feed—but how does it know? Findings from St. Jude Children's Research Hospital provide new understanding of how the brain orchestrates this process. Skeletal muscle, like other tissues, communicates with the brain to convey information about nutritional status. The researchers showed that manipulating this mechanism influences food seeking […]
  • New drugs more likely to be approved if backed up by genetics December 12, 2019
    A new drug candidate is more likely to be approved for use if it targets a gene known to be linked to the disease; a finding that can help pharmaceutical companies to focus their drug development efforts. Emily King and colleagues from AbbVie report these findings in a new study published 12th December in PLOS […]
  • Largest study of its kind reveals that many psychiatric disorders arise from common genes December 12, 2019
    Many distinct psychiatric diseases share a common genetic structure, according to new research by scientists at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) and the Psychiatric Genomics Consortium, an international team of investigators. Psychiatric disorders affect more than 25 percent of the population in a given year. In the largest-ever study of its kind, published in the journal […]
  • You did what with my donation? When donors feel betrayed by charities December 13, 2019
    When people learn that a charitable contribution they earmarked for a specific project was used for another cause, they feel betrayed -- and often punish the charity, new research from Washington State University indicates.
  • Historical look at US army suicides December 13, 2019
    Nearly 200 years of military records from 1819 to 2017 were used to examine suicide rates among active-duty personnel in the US Army in this observational study.
  • Rare find: human teeth used as jewellery in Turkey 8,500 years ago December 13, 2019
    At a prehistoric archaeological site in Turkey, researchers have discovered two 8,500-year-old human teeth, which had been used as pendants in a necklace or bracelet. Researchers have never documented this practice before in the prehistoric Near East, and the rarity of the find suggests that the human teeth were imbued with profound symbolic meaning for […]
  • Problem drinkers have higher 'benzo' use, UCSF-Kaiser Permanente study shows December 13, 2019
    Problem drinkers are more likely than teetotalers and moderate drinkers to take benzodiazepines, a class of sedatives that are among the most commonly prescribed drugs -- and the most abused. When taken by heavier drinkers, benzodiazepines may heighten the risk for overdoses and accidents as well as exacerbate psychiatric conditions.
  • IU School of Medicine team learns how to predict triple negative breast cancer recurrence December 13, 2019
    Indiana University School of Medicine researchers have discovered how to predict whether triple negative breast cancer will recur, and which women are likely to remain disease-free. They will present their findings on Dec. 13, 2019, at the San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium, the most influential gathering of breast cancer researchers and physicians in the world.
