Emcure Pharma launches drug for CKD patients

The drug will be sold under the brand name Dynulta. Its active component is sucroferric oxyhydroxide developed indigenously by Emcure. Dynulta will be manufactured at Emcure’s state-of-the-art plant at Jammu and will be marketed at less than 70 per cent cost of the innovator brand.“The incidence of CKD is on the rise in India. Dynulta will provide an efficacious and cost-effective remedy for Indian patients” said Namita Thapar, Executive Director, Emcure Pharmaceuticals.  Sucroferric oxyhydroxide displays a high phosphate binding capacity, resulting in effective serum phosphorus control. This was demonstrated in a phase III study of sucroferric oxyhydroxide versus sevelamer. Real-world studies show that patients who switch to sucroferric oxyhydroxide from another phosphate binder achieve better long-term serum phosphorus control with a lower number of pills. A lower pill burden can translate into better patient compliance with treatment.  Studies have shown that sucroferric oxyhydroxide is effective in the reduction of serum phosphorus in a broad range of dialysis patients.The innovator company for sucroferric oxyhydroxide is Vifor Fresenius Medical Care Renal Pharma, a joint operation between Vifor Pharma and Fresenius Medical care, providers of dialysis services. It is marketed internationally as Velphoro, which is not available in India.

Black Friday Bandits Arraigned

first_imgThree women were also arrested during this investigation: Lantz’ wife, 25-year-old Breanna Wright, 45-year-old Patricia Barnes, and 39-year-old Kami Tullos. Tullos escaped via the back door but was soon located by Troopers. Megan Peters with the State Troopers said it all started on March 13th with the suspicious sale of a .45 Sig Sauer… 30-year-old Lantz was taken to Wildwood where he was found to be concealing heroin. He claimed he didn’t own any guns and didn’t know where the weapons in his home came from. Lantz faces four felony charges for drugs, theft, and weapons misconduct with a maximum of 60 years in prison. Wright was charged with three felonies and a maximum of 16 years. Barnes has 11 felonies and up to 101 years in prison. Wright had been the third-party custodian for Barnes who was on parole for a different case. Tullos was charged with one felony and a maximum of 5 years in prison.center_img FacebookTwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享Four Soldotna residents have been arraigned after a Black Friday escapade involving an allegedly stolen firearm. Peters: “So essentially a guy went to the residence to purchase a pistol and got a weird vibe, so he ended up documenting the serial number on the gun and then after he left, he reported it to the Alaska State Troopers to see if it was stolen. The pistol did in fact come back as stolen from an APD case, so a warrant was obtained to search for and seize the stolen firearm. In the process of issuing that search warrant, meth and heroin and related paraphernalia were located. They were able to amend the search warrant to include controlled substances. Approximately 12.1 grams of meth and 2.408 grams of heroin were recovered from Joe Lantz, in addition to about $2,304 in cash.”last_img read more

SportShorts: Murray is still a fighter, England grind

first_imgCRICKETAustralia skittle Pakistan to seize control at the GabbaAustralia seized the advantage on the opening day of the first Test when they bowled Pakistan out for 240 just before stumps at the Gabba in Brisbane on Thursday.After the visitors resisted stubbornly in the first session, reaching 57 for no wicket at lunch, pace trio Mitchell Starc (4-52), Josh Hazlewood (2-46) and Pat Cummins (3-60) tore through the Pakistan batting order to put the hosts in charge at the close of play.Australia seized the initiative after lunch when they took five wickets for just 19 runs, reducing Pakistan from 75 for none to 94 for five.The pacemen then struck again late in the day, with 16-year-old debutant Naseem Shah just squeezing out Starc’s hat-trick ball.“It was quite a welcome to Test cricket wasn’t it?” Hazlewood said.Hazlewood said the fast bowlers had enjoyed the extra bounce at the Gabba.“The way we fought back in the second session was perfect,” he said.Pakistan were rescued from complete disaster by Asad Shafiq who played a lone hand, scoring 76 well-made runs.England stand firm against Black Caps on attritional dayEngland’s Ben Stokes hits a shot on day one of the first Test cricket match between England and New Zealand at Bay Oval in Mount Maunganui on November 21, 2019. (Photo by DAVID GRAY / AFP)Half-centuries from Joe Denly and Ben Stokes breathed life into England who reached 241 for four at stumps after a slow start on the first day of the opening Test against New Zealand at Mount Maunganui on Thursday.With England intent on occupying the crease as long as possible — although captain Joe Root’s stay was very brief — and New Zealand bowling tight lines, run-scoring was not a priority but the day was not without its drama.Denly, who claimed the honours in a fascinating battle with New Zealand’s short-ball maestro Neil Wagner, fell for 74 when the second new ball was taken.New Zealand-born Stokes, who punished Trent Boult with four boundaries off consecutive balls, including one from a dropped catch by Ross Taylor at first slip, was unbeaten on 67 with Ollie Pope on 18.Colin de Grandhomme, with gentle medium pacers drifting away from the batsmen, finished with two for 28 while Tim Southee and Wagner had a wicket each. – AFP.=============TENNISAndy Murray’s love of a comeback continues in Davis CupThe Davis Cup has a new format but Andy Murray’s love of a comeback remains intact after the Scot battled from behind to beat Tallon Griekspoor on Wednesday as Great Britain edged past Holland.Murray came from a set down and then trailed 4-1 in the decider in Madrid before beating the spirited Griekspoor, ranked 179 in the world, 6-7 (7/9), 6-4, 7-6 (7/5).“I’ve found a way to win matches many times in my career when I’ve not been playing well,” Murray said. “You can draw on that a little bit.”A scrappy victory gave Great Britain the lead in their opening Group E tie and while Dan Evans lost the second singles rubber to Robin Haase, Jamie Murray and Neal Skupski finished the job in the doubles.Rafael Nadal won his 26th consecutive Davis Cup singles match later on Wednesday as Spain booked their place in the quarter-finals with a 3-0 victory over defending champions Croatia.Novak Djokovic, meanwhile, cruised past Yoshihito Nishioka to help Serbia beat Japan by the same scoreline. – AFP.For more sport your way, download The Citizen’s app for iOS and Android.last_img read more

Smoking ban set for parks

first_imgPALMDALE – Smoking will be banned in three of Palmdale’s newest recreation facilities, and prohibitions elsewhere are in the works. Smoking will be banned effective Aug. 19 at the Marie Kerr Park amphitheater and the park’s Best of the West softball complex and at the DryTown Water Park. City staffers are devising a comprehensive plan for the City Council’s review that will designate what other park areas or city facilities will be smoke-free. “As a former smoker, I know that smoking does affect other people,” said Mayor Jim Ledford. “As the effects of secondhand smoking are becoming better known, the public is looking at agencies, such as cities, to protect them.” AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORE11 theater productions to see in Southern California this week, Dec. 27-Jan. 2The city’s action does not go far enough, said Xavier Flores, executive director of Pueblo y Salud, a nonprofit group pushing for tighter tobacco and alcohol regulations. The city should have enacted a complete ban on smoking in city facilities, Flores said, citing recent health reports such as the American Cancer Society estimate of 1 billion tobacco-related deaths this century and a UCLA report of high asthma rates among Antelope Valley children. “It’s a step in the right direction, but we had hoped they would have taken a bigger step,” Flores said. “The council has every reason to implement the most far-reaching policies and regulations, but they are being timid.” Councilman Tom Lackey also favored an outright ban. “If we say we don’t want smoke, let’s mean it and say no smoking,” Lackey said. Ultimately, a complete ban might be enacted sometime down the line, city officials said. The City Council viewed the new regulations as part of a transition phase. “We can’t go cold turkey,” said Councilman Mike Dispenza. “We need to start weaning people away from smoking.” Councilman Steve Hofbauer said an outright ban would be difficult to enforce. An outright ban could also cause problems with cleaning up cigarette butts tossed on the ground because there are no ashcans. “They’ll just try to sneak it,” Hofbauer said. “I think you have to give people an option.” Hofbauer cites the city’s transportation center as an example of how designated smoking areas can work well. Having a designated smoking site has kept cigarette-butt litter down to a minimum and keeps smoke away from the nonsmokers, he said.
