This phase I II trial examined the safety and efficacy of combining erlotinib and bevacizumab therapy in patients with advanced or metastatic NSCLC. No serious adverse effects or dose-limiting toxicities were reported in any of the cohorts in phase I. In accordance with the study protocol, the dose defined as the phase II dose for this study and the recommended dose for future studies was erlotinib at its previously defined maximum tolerated dose as a single agent 150 mg d ; plus bevacizumab at the highest tolerated dose investigated in this indication 15 mg kg ; . The pharmacokinetics of these agents in combination was also assessed, and there was no evidence of a pharmacokinetic interaction between these agents 13 ; . A total of 40 patients were enrolled in the study. The combination of 150 mg d erlotinib and 15 mg kg bevacizumab.

A recorded high density lipoprotein HDL ; level 1mmol l. The representative took from the practice the names and addresses of those 40 patients and sent them a letter, a copy of which was provided. Many patients who received the letter did not understand its content, and queried its source and purpose with reception staff who were equally in the dark, the GP not having informed them of this initiative. The complainant considered that the activities of the representative were questionable, particularly in relation to the access and removal from the practice of confidential patient information albeit with the approval of the GP ; . When writing to the company the Authority asked it to respond in relation to Clauses 2, 9.1, 15.2 and 18.1 of the Code. RESPONSE Merck stated that it regrettably acknowledged that the events described above did occur; it had been unaware of them prior to receiving the complaint. The representative admitted he had conducted a therapy review at a practice within the complainant's area. The representative had discussed Niaspan with the GP in March 2005. Niaspan was indicated for use with a statin to treat dyslipidaemia and was of benefit in raising HDL-cholesterol, an independent risk factor for cardiovascular disease. There had been a recent amendment to the summary of product characteristics, a copy of the version in use at the time of this meeting was provided. During the discussion the GP stated that although he wanted to treat patients with low HDL-cholesterol, as a single-handed practice his staff were too busy to search and review patient records to identify those with a low HDL-cholesterol and so the representative offered to help. The GP agreed to this and a computer at the practice was made available to the representative a fortnight later. Although the GP was in the room throughout, the representative was given access to the search facility of the computer system and he proceeded to search for patients with a recorded HDL-cholesterol level 1mmol l. This was a verbal agreement so there was no formal documentation. The representative returned to the practice a week later to discuss the findings of the search with the GP. He had identified approximately 40 patients with a low HDL-cholesterol for review. The GP agreed to recall these patients to discuss their treatment options; however he again indicated that his staff were too.

Prolongs the lives of people with advanced stomach cancer and cancer of the esophagus the tube through which food passes on its way to the stomach ; . The clinical trial involved nearly 40 people with the disease, none of whom had been treated with chemotherapy used in the study. The participants were given the targeted treatment bevacizumab and the drugs irinotecan Camptosar ; and cisplatin Platinol ; . Overall, the participants survived about a year after treatment, which is longer than expected if they had been treated with chemotherapy alone. What's more, adding bevacizumab to the chemotherapy treatment did not lead to intolerable side effects. This was a particular concern, as some of the possible side effects of bevacizumab, such as excess bleeding or the development of holes in the intestinal tract, can be especially problematic for people with stomach cancer. More studies of the bevacizumab chemotherapy combination for stomach and esophageal cancer are currently under way.

Bevacizumab model, two health states were defined: utility scores of 0.80 and 0.60 were applied to time in `stable disease' and `progressive disease', respectively [see the section `Methods for estimating QALYs gained' p. 54 ; ]. The PFS duration for patients receiving cetuximab in combination with irinotecan was estimated using the empirical KaplanMeier PFS curve reported within the BOND trial. PFS curves for patients receiving active best supportive care were available only for the trial reported by Rao and colleagues.108 Time without disease progression was estimated as the ratio of PFS to OS approximately 37% of OS ; using outcomes for the control arm of this trial, based on estimates of the area under the published KaplanMeier curves.108 Methods for estimating health care resource use and costs Acquisition costs. The acquisition costs of cetuximab and irinotecan were estimated using data on the number of vials administered within the BOND trial as reported in the Merck submission to NICE.35, 73 Table 40 shows the observed chemotherapy resource use for patients receiving cetuximab plus irinotecan within the BOND trial. Unit costs for cetuximab and irinotecan were taken from the BNF.89 The acquisition costs associated with those patients who receive active supportive care were estimated using data collected from a subpopulation of patients who were eligible to participate in but were excluded from the BOND trial [as described in the section `Modelling costs and resource use' p. 48 ; ]; 73 these data were reported within the Merck submission to NICE.35 According to the.

We are the French biotechnology industry association, consisting of 250 companies devoted to R&D, some of them with a series of products in the pipeline. I have two main messages. First, biotechnology is now the main source of innovation. Secondly and this is a view that we share with EuropaBio the gap with the US is widening. Biotech is now the source of over 50% of new medicines. Last year medicines derived from biotech accounted for 40% of new drug applications to the FDA in most cases these are developed in partnership with the pharmaceutical industry. 250 million patients throughout the world have already been treated with these biotech-derived medicines. Biotech medicines represent a market of billion, accounting for between 9 and 10% of total pharma sales. We at France Biotech wanted to have a more concrete view of what biotech companies bring to the patients, hence our study, BioImpact. We feel strongly that healthcare biotech is responsible for real achievements. Another important statement is that most of these drugs 70% ; have been developed in the US, with some in the UK. The US effort in this effort is sustained, with the NIH budget doubling every 5 years, so you can see why we are calling on Europe to have more innovation- and research-friendly policies. Our BioImpact study proposes a series of tools to show the benefits to patients. We started with a scientific steering committee we wanted to have scientifically validated data, which are widely spread across the literature, and it is a huge amount of work to synthesise and analyse them. First we identified a series of advances brought by biotechnology: product safety recombinant technology instead of live extracts more targeted and specific drugs addressing the mechanisms of the disease, not only symptoms optimisation of known therapies such as chemotherapy optimisation of drug delivery; improved diagnosis and fewer side effects toward personalised medicines ; . Meanwhile, the share of biopharmaceutical molecules among New Drug Applications approved by the FDA has risen, from 6 out of 31 in 2002 to 14 out of 35 in 2003. 27 and bioflavonoids.
After many years of "slim picking" in treatment options, research in metastatic colon cancer is buzzing with exciting activities and new discoveries, including the use of targeted therapy. The cooperative groups are concentrating their effort on the use of targeted therapy in the adjuvant setting, such as an antibody to epidermal growth factor receptor cetuximab ; and an antibody to vascular endothelial growth factor bevacizumab ; . NCS is currently participating in a randomized trial comparing cetuximab bevacizumab 5FU leucovorin versus bevacizumab oxaliplatin 5FU leucovorin in first line treatment of metastatic colon cancer. Despite a lack of activity in malignancies in other parts of the GI tract, docetaxel has significant activity in gastric carcinoma. A phase II trial of the combination of docetaxel and oxaliplatin in metastatic gastric carcinoma was successfully completed in 2005. On March 22, 2006, the Food and Drug Administration approved docetaxel-based chemotherapy as the standard first line choice in patients with metastatic gastric cancer. We have also ventured into therapies with novel mechanisms of action in pancreatic cancer. PANVAC-VF are 2 recombinant DNA live virus vaccines that elicit a brisk immune response and may provide a potential increase in survival. These vaccines contain recombinant CEA and MUC1 genes two tumor-associated antigens that are each expressed on over 90% of pancreatic cancer cells ; . This is the first time Northwest Cancer Specialists is able to provide our patients with access to biosafety level II agents. We are looking forward to studying other cutting edge investigational novel agents in the future including a new vaccine for patients after resection of pancreatic cancer due to open this spring. Enzastaurin, a protein kinase C inhibitor, is now under study in combination with gemcitabine in this same group of patients.

ITEM 4 INFORMATION ON THE COMPANY Mayne Group Limited is one of Australia's leading healthcare companies and a leading international specialty pharmaceuticals company. We are listed on the Australian Stock Exchange "ASX" ; and included in the ASX S&P 50 index Australia's 50 largest companies listed on the ASX ; with a market capitalization as of October 31, 2004 of A.8 billion. We are one of the largest commercial operators of healthcare businesses in Australia, with consolidated total assets of A.1 billion and consolidated total sales revenue of A.1 billion for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2004. Over the past three years, we have been through a period of repositioning. This commenced in October 2001, when we completed our acquisition of F.H. Faulding, an Australia-based, international pharmaceutical and health care company. We sold our logistics businesses during the 2003 fiscal year and, in November 2003, we sold our hospitals business. During the same period, we made acquisitions in our pharmacy, pathology and diagnostic imaging businesses. We are now a healthcare business focused on our international specialty pharmaceuticals business and our Australian diagnostic services and pharmacy operations. At June 30, 2004, we employed a total of approximately 12, 000 people globally excluding employees of hospitals to be transferred in connection with the sale of our hospitals business ; . We are incorporated in the Commonwealth of Australia, have our executive offices at 390 St. Kilda Rd, Melbourne, Victoria, 3004 and our telephone number is + 61 9868 Our 2004 financial year commenced on July 1, 2003 and concluded on June 30, 2004. History and recent developments Our business began in 1886 as a partnership operating a parcel delivery service in Melbourne, Australia. Our company was incorporated in 1915 and has been publicly listed in Australia since 1926. Our investment in health grew initially as a result of collocation of private hospitals with public hospital premises and privatization of the operation of public hospitals in Australia. This was supplemented by acquisitions of privately owned hospitals and diagnostic imaging and pathology businesses in the late 1990s and early in the new millennium. In October 2001 we completed the acquisition of F.H Faulding. This acquisition was a landmark transaction for our company, increasing the total asset base by over 80%. The Faulding acquisition provided significant diversification into additional health services and products, and provided us with an international presence in pharmaceuticals. The businesses acquired under the Faulding acquisition were: development, manufacture and marketing of pharmaceuticals; manufacturing and marketing of consumer health products; and provision of distribution and retail management services to pharmacies.

Harged particle beams CPB ; , consisting of protons or carbon ions produced in a cyclotron or synchrotron, are an important development in radiotherapy.1 w1 Compared with conventional x rays, charged particle beams produce excellent dose distributions to tumours and reduced doses to normal tissues. They thus hold out the promise of enhanced treatments for cancer and improved quality of life for patients being treated. All the major technical advances in radiotherapy, such as increasing x ray energies and better target localisation have improved accuracy and outcomes, w2 w3 without direct evidence from randomised clinical trials.
