There were 82,000 fewer individual policyholders in 2003 compared to 1999. There is little doubt that ever-increasing premiums have suppressed demand, driving some consumers to give up their cover and preventing others from taking it out in the first place.

Cytotoxics: new regime out on a limb

By isolating the cancerous limb from the rest of the circulatory system, ILI allows doctors to step up chemotherapy doses significantly.

GlaxoSmithKline: smoke blows both ways

A new study suggests that without physician support, OTC nicotine replacement drugs may be useless. This is interesting reading for GSK, which is the biggest producer of anti-smoking drugs. The news should boost prescription-only Zyban, but GSK may have to invest in physician support to maintain sales of NRT drugs Nicorette and NicoDerm.
