  • Yet More New Developmetn Re; Amarin [View instapost]
    yes, I realize amarin has presented additional scientific evidence of reductions in "triglycerides (TG), non-high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (non-HDL-C), apolipoprotein B (Apo B), low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C), total cholesterol (TC) and very-low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (VLDL-C) in adults with mixed dyslipidemia and coronary heart disease (CHD) or a CHD risk equivalent."

    but has amarin reported an sNDA for anything other than "the marketing and sale of Vascepa(R) (icosapent ethyl) capsules for use as an adjunct to diet in the treatment of adult patients with high triglycerides (TG =200 mg/dL and < 500 mg/dL) with mixed dyslipidemia."?

  • Yet More New Developmetn Re; Amarin [View instapost]
    what gives here? amarin submits for (TG =200 mg/dL and < 500 mg/dL)(ANCHOR) and FDA is discussing concomitant use with an inhibitor of HMG-CoA reductase (statin)?

    Amarin Announces Submission of Supplemental New Drug Application (sNDA) for Vascepa(R) for the Treatment of Patients With High Triglycerides With Mixed Dyslipidemia
    BEDMINSTER, N.J. and DUBLIN, Ireland, Feb. 26, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Amarin Corporation plc (Nasdaq:AMRN), a biopharmaceutical company focused on the commercialization and development of therapeutics to improve cardiovascular health, announced today that it has submitted a Supplemental New Drug Application (sNDA) with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) seeking approval for the marketing and sale of Vascepa(R) (icosapent ethyl) capsules for use as an adjunct to diet in the treatment of adult patients with high triglycerides (TG =200 mg/dL and < 500 mg/dL) with mixed dyslipidemia. Amarin expects to hear within 74 days from the FDA whether the sNDA submission has been accepted for review (inclusive of the standard 60-day review and the standard 14-day communication periods).

    Amarin Announces FDA Acceptance of Supplemental New Drug Application (sNDA) for Vascepa(R) for the Treatment of Patients With High Triglycerides (>200 mg/dL and <500 mg/dL) With Mixed Dyslipidemia
    BEDMINSTER, N.J. and DUBLIN, Ireland, April 23, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Amarin Corporation plc (Nasdaq:AMRN), a biopharmaceutical company focused on the commercialization and development of therapeutics to improve cardiovascular health, announced today that the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has accepted its Supplemental New Drug Application (sNDA) seeking approval for the marketing and sale of Vascepa(R) (icosapent ethyl) capsules for use as an adjunct to diet in the treatment of adult patients with high triglycerides (TG =200 mg/dL and < 500 mg/dL) with mixed dyslipidemia. The acceptance of the sNDA indicates that the application is sufficiently complete to permit a substantive review. The application will be subject to a standard review and has been assigned a Prescription Drug User Fee Act (PDUFA) date of December 20, 2013. The PDUFA date is the target date for the FDA to complete its review of the sNDA.

    Agenda
    The committee will discuss the supplemental new drug application, NDA 202057/S-005, Vascepa (icosapent ethyl) Capsules, submitted by Amarin Pharmaceuticals Ireland Ltd. Vascepa is currently approved as monotherapy for the treatment of severe hypertriglyceridemia.

    This supplemental application proposes concomitant use with an inhibitor of HMG-CoA reductase (statin) to reduce triglycerides (TG), non-high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (non-HDL-C), apolipoprotein B (Apo B), low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C), total cholesterol (TC) and very-low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (VLDL-C) in adults with mixed dyslipidemia and coronary heart disease (CHD) or a CHD risk equivalent.

  • Blockbuster Claims It Has '28-Day Advantage', But Only Has 13 Movies Streaming in HD [View article]
    Three of the main design parameters for HD live streaming are: (1) the video quality (mostly determined by the resolution of each video frame, the number of bits allocated for each of the three transmitted colors, the number of frames per second, and the compression technique used); (2) the transmission bandwidth; and (3) the end-to-end delay. Due to the massive amount of data required to transmit such streams simultaneously achieving low latency and keeping the bandwidth low are contradictory requirements. Packet losses and transmission errors are other problems in streaming HD live video. Because errors in one video frame may propagate to subsequent frames when certain compression algorithms are used, small transmission errors may result in significant picture quality degradation over a period of time. Also, many live streaming systems do not recover packet losses in order to reduce end-to-end delay.

    Good quality real-time encoded 480i MPEG-2 requires at least 4Mbps, and more like 6Mbps.

    Good quality 720p HD takes at least 12Mbps, and 15Mbps is a more reasonable minimum.

    Good quality 1080i takes at least 15Mbps, and even 28Mbps isn't
    enough to eliminate all artifacts.

    The results of the 2009 speedmatters.org survey show
    that most Americans continue to be locked into slow
    Internet, while relatively few have access to truly highspeed
    two-way connections. Eighteen percent of those who
    took the speed test recorded download speeds that were
    slower than 768 kbps, which does not even qualify as basic
    broadband according to the Federal Communications
    Commission. Another two-thirds (64 percent) of speed test
    participants connected at less than 10 mbps downstream,
    which is not enough bandwidth for high-definition (HD) video.
    Only one-fifth (19 percent) of speed test participants connected
    at speeds greater than 10 mbps, with only 2 percent
    of those exceeding 25 mbps downstream

    what download bandwidth are you using to stream HD?
    and at what cost?
