Acute respiratory distress syndrome: searching for effective therapies

Acute respiratory distress syndrome has an annual incidence of up to 75 cases per 100,000 in the US. The condition remains very difficult to treat with a mortality rate between 30% and 60%. Although much research into ARDS has been carried out, the lack of a standard definition for the condition has made trial results unclear, so what hope is there of a treatment breakthrough in the near future?

However, there are few approved treatments - and most of the ones that do exist are largely confined to speeding recovery from acute attacks of the disorder or to managing symptoms.

AstraZeneca/Merck/Schering-Plough: room for everybody

Results were presented for 'superstatin' Crestor and absorption inhibitor Zetia at the European Atherosclerosis Society Congress. Despite advances in cholesterol lowering therapy over the last decade, there is still unmet need in this market. Although Zetia is less effective on its own than a statin, it has strong potential as an adjunct therapy.

AstraZeneca: Arimidex is the new gold standard

The cancer drug showed outstanding results compared to the current gold standard, tamoxifen. Indeed, Arimidex could be the ideal aromatase inhibitor - and judging by these results, AstraZeneca's marketing power will ensure that the drug becomes a major cancer product.

AstraZeneca: Exanta results biased by design

Although a new trial has found AstraZeneca's Exanta more effective than Aventis' Lovenox at cutting venous thromboembolism incidence, the trial's design does not inspire confidence in the results - or in Exanta as a VTE drug. AstraZeneca's anticoagulant has far greater potential as a replacement for warfarin for stroke prevention in atrial fibrillation patients.<BR />

AstraZeneca: new Crestor worries will delay approval further

Although AstraZeneca's Crestor has received an FDA approvable letter, the agency requires additional safety data for approval. Given the drug's side effects in high-dose formulations, which have led to the withdrawal of the 80mg dose, getting this data will result in continued delays for the beleaguered 'superstatin'.

AstraZeneca: only a short-term setback for Arimidex

Trial results showed a slight advantage for Arimidex over tamoxifen in treating early breast cancer in post-menopausal women. However, ASCO has advised caution in replacing tamoxifen with AstraZeneca's drug. Although this verdict will hold sales back in the short term, there is still huge long-term potential for Arimidex as the preferred breast cancer therapy.
