Today's Globe: anti-anemia drug roadblocks, AIDS orphans, bed sores, new hepatitis drug
A licensing deal between Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and a Florida biotechnology company to produce a "super" form of an anti-anemia drug is in danger of foundering just two years after it was signed.
As the creator of the first global center dedicated exclusively to health and human rights, at the Harvard School of Public Health, Countess Albina du Boisrouvray probably has as much hands-on experience in both as anyone. She's adopted the world's AIDS orphans as her cause.
Until recently, most experts believed that bed sores were an unambiguous indicator of bad care.
In Business & Innovation, for Vertex Pharmaceuticals Inc., the future hinges on a potential billion-dollar drug for hepatitis C and a liver-research conference about to kick off 3,700 miles away in Spain where it will unveil new data from human trials of the pill.
