EU clinical trials directive is threatening future of cancer research
A new European directive is threatening the future of cancer research in Europe, warn experts in this week�s BMJ. The EU clinical trials directive, implemented in 2004, was intended to protect patients and improve research standards. But many investigators were worried that the labour intensive, bureaucratic, and expensive endeavour of running a clinical trial would become worse under the new rules. In particular, academic researchers funded by grants, who have so far performed most cancer trials, were worried that their resources might no longer suffice to meet the requirements of the new directive.

Lessons from natalizumab fast tracking in multiple sclerosis
Concerns over the fast tracking of new drugs for commercial licensing are raised by a senior doctor in this week�s BMJ. It follows approval of natalizumab, a new drug for multiple sclerosis, and its recall three months later, after three trial patients developed a life threatening condition while being treated. Natalizumab was licensed by the US Food and Drug Administration in 2004 for use in relapsing multiple sclerosis on the basis of short term results from two unpublished trials. The FDA granted approval before final trial and cumulative safety data were available. Natalizumab was predicted to be the leading drug for multiple sclerosis, with estimated annual sales in excess of $2bn.

New stem cell study seeks to prevent heart failure
University of Rochester Medical Center researchers today announced the launch of a study that will examine whether transplanted stem cells can be safely used to treat damaged heart muscle in patients just after their first heart attack. As part of the fast emerging science of regenerative medicine, labs worldwide are attempting to replace damaged tissue with new cells, much in the same way as salamanders re-grow limbs.

Study of New, Non-Growth Hormone Treatment for Short Stature
Rush University Medical Center is participating in a clinical trial to evaluate the potential benefit of the first major innovation in 20 years for the treatment of growth failure. The drug, called Increlex, was approved by the FDA August 31 for the most severe form of short stature due to a deficiency of Insulin-like Growth Factor-1 (IGF-1). Ongoing trials will determine if the drug may be used for less severe growth disease.
