DE PLUS EN PLUS DE MÉDICAMENTS ET VACCINS EN RUPTURE DE STOCK

Le constat est alarmant. Selon l’Agence nationale de sécurité du médicament (ANSM), entre 2008 et 2014, les ruptures d’approvisionnement des médicaments ont été multipliées par 10 et, d’après Le Parisien, le phénomène s’aggrave de plus en plus rapidement. En effet, selon Issam Bouha, un pharmacien de Clamart cité par le quotidien, depuis mai, "300 médicaments s'affichent en rupture de stock sur les listings des fournisseurs".

Solid, heat-resistant vaccine to ease immunisation processes

EU researchers have set out to substitute liquid and freeze-dried vaccines for new, solid state candidates. If successful, the research will enable the large scale production of new virosome-based vaccines with increased stability, longer shelf life and less invasive administration methods.

Dr. Karin Goodison, one of the medical officers of health for this zone, said the numbers are clear, as a trend has emerged which has seen a smaller percentage of locals participate in immunization programs.
