Japanese Price Cutting to Become More Frequent

Japanese Drug Pricing Cuts Expected To Be More Frequent

For decades Japan has cut prices on launched drugs every two years after launch. Anticipated pricing reforms will likely include reviewing drug reimbursements annually going forward according to Japan Pharmaceutical Manufacturers Association Director of International Affairs Takeshi Shigihara.

Japan has recently undertaken several aggressive price cuts for prescription drugs. Earlier this month, Chuikyo cut the price of cancer drug Opdivo nivolumab by 50%, effective February 2017. This past March, the authorities finalized price cuts for high-revenue products, including Harvoni ledipasvir/sofosbuvir and Sovaldi sofosbuvir. The HCV therapies were each discounted 31.7%.

The Japanese authorities are not expected to deny good prices for innovative drugs at launch but they will be subject to pricing cuts subsequently.

Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving!

If you have post-election anxiety, you may find the following advice which originated from a Santa Barbara Family Services Agency helpful. Some friends from the central coast passed on this information which I have found very helpful. I hope it might be of help to you and your family as you prepare for the normal stress of the upcoming holidays. I regret not being able to credit the original source.

“Post-Election Stress Disorder” (PESD) is NOT a diagnosis, but it is a phenomenon that feels real nonetheless. Countless Americans are reporting feeling triggered, traumatized, on edge, anxious, sleepless, angry, hopeless, avoidant and alone.  There is not just one type of American who has been experiencing these types of symptoms, and there is not just one reason for it.  The recent election has highlighted our differences in values, our lifestyle, our early traumas, our relationships, and even our reality.  Fear and anxiety are normal feelings after such an unsettling campaign season!

The following stress reduction tips might help!

  1. Take care of yourself.  Get enough sleep, eat properly, get regular exercise, limit substance use.
    2. Grieve.  Acknowledge feelings of pain and anger for the purposes of understanding and maturing with it. The deeper our attachment to a desire (or person), the stronger our reaction to the loss. So remind yourself your strong reaction is a reflection of your caring, your connection and your passion. And, give yourself time to grieve; there are no “timelines” to healing, and moving on is not a linear process.
    3. Gather with like-minded persons to talk through your thoughts and emotions.
    4. Connect with persons in your community with whom you share similar values (e.g., your place of worship, yoga studio, club, team, etc.)
    5. Stick to your routine.  Maintaining your regular schedule of activities and taking care of your usual responsibilities can help engage you and reestablish a sense of normalcy and regularity.
    6. Limit media. Read/watch just enough to stay informed, then turn to something more satisfying.
    7. Set aside time to worry, a behavioral technique called “thought-stopping.”    Too much worry can be a prison. It hijacks the mind and limits its bandwidth.
    8. Take the opportunity to model resilience for those who look up to you –your children, your extended family members, friends, co-workers, neighbors, etc.
    9. Apologize to anyone you’ve hurt.  The process of apologizing is very freeing.  Even if the other person doesn’t receive it well, your good intentions will help ease your stress.
    10. Implement/maintain healthy boundaries with others.
    . Commit to talk with others respectfully, or not at all.
    . Respectfully confront those who disrespect your
    boundaries
    . Listen.  Bear witness to what is happening in our country;
    seek to understand, empathize.
    . When tensions are particularly high, limit political debate
    and argument.  When people feel anxious they move
    into a reactive mode. Anxious people tend to be less
    flexible and less open to new experiences and points
    of view. They’re more likely to oversimplify what’s
    upsetting them and have a binary (Right/Wrong) view.
    11. Manifest the values of love, acceptance, unity, inclusion, respect for diversity, and benevolence.
  2. 12. De-catastrophize, maintain a balanced perspective.Remember that more than 50 million Americans embraced the message of moving forward together, seeing the importance of equality and fairness.13. Impermanence is built into our system of government.  Our political system and the three branches of government mean that we can expect a significant degree of stability immediately after a major transition of government.
    Hard times pass.
    14. Focus on that which you share in common with others.
    15. Express yourself through writing– in a diary, a blog, or wherever it feels safe to do so.
    16. Connect with people who inspire you (e.g., by reading books about inspirational persons, thanking helpful persons through letters, asking someone to mentor you, etc.).
    17. Engage in “mindfulness,” the practice of noticing your present internal and external experiences without judgment.  Mindfulness techniques can help quiet our fear and anxiety, which allows the nervous system to settle down. Then our perspectives can broaden and we are more likely to cope.
    18. Become aware of the emotional pain that might express itself non-verbally/physically (e.g., tightness around the eyes, a tense jaw, contracted shoulders and throat, clenched abdominal muscles); then, engage in self-calming techniques.
    19. Reframe, responsibly.  There is a lesson in every painful experience and something to still be grateful for in every failure.
    20. Take Action.  Move with determination to organize, mobilize, and find new ways to create change.  Channel your concerns to make a positive difference on issues you care about.  Consider volunteering in your community, advocating for an issue you support or joining a local group, pursuing civic involvement.Highlights of Upcoming Bay Area Meetings Starting  Week of November 27th

The Election if Over, Now What Happens?

The election results have left the majority of Americans in some form of shock and most haven’t been able to start working through stages of grief as yet. We fortunately have two months of transition to get organized. Some would say it is greed and international corporate values that have produced the state of depression that led the nonracist working class members of Trump voters to support him. They were looking for quick fix financial inequality from which they suffer and see him as potentially using nontraditional methods to achieve it.  What they don’t recognize with their information sourcing that he is not as successful a businessman as he claims and that his associates share his misogynic, racist, sexist, dishonest and fascist values.

But among.his voters are also upper middle class folks who see his election as making it okay to want more money despite its impact on the rest of the citizenry. He seemed to be able to get away with achieving wealth without suffering any empathy for those less off or showing any civic mindedness.  I’d seen this among the neauveau riche in our industry. I see a lot of folks who never learned to share their toys and have grandiose sense of entitlement.

We recognize It is time to reflect and plan hoe to overcome the potential rapid infusion of Trump ways and values into our industry and the larger culture. Although we may still be reeling, we need to channel our feelings and energy in a positive way. The more authoritarian among us already are reprimanding us to get other it but I suggest joining a nonprofit to help fight Trump values taking over, reconsider what are best ways to achieve improvements in our economy and protect our brothers and sisters who have brought such dynamism and innovation to us in California. This is not the time for blame but rather getting in gear together for movement forward.

Election Has Citizenry Nervous on All Sides

Election Has Folks Extremely Nervous on All Sides

The closing days of the presidential election have left citizens extremely anxious on both sides. With lots of negative, angry campaigning and unprecedented actions by FBI in the closing days of election, the campaign has rightly raised fear levels. Just yesterday FBI Director Comey announced there are no charges warranted by new Clinton emails found in another unrelated investigation by the FBI. In July Comey criticized Hillary Clinton with carelessness in handling classified information but determined that there was no basis for criminal charges.

Clinton’s opponents cried for her persecution, jailing and worse as Donald Trump’s rallies and social media has taken on a negative role in trivializing the value of facts and a rush to punishment and imprisonment before reaching criminal charges. The association of Trump’s campaign with the alt right, authoritarianist Russia and potential fascism has raised grave concern on large numbers of people in both parties. Clearly, no matter what the outcome tomorrow there will be a period of healing of the country required before the polity can function effectively. The challenge will be whether or not the citizenry can accept the voters’ choice peacefully and the Congress can return to ending the gridlock driven by Republicans who couldn’t accept the Presidency of Barack Obama. Trump has cried election is rigged along with lots of conspiracy theories that have made me nervous that he has unearthed potential violent behavior of segments of the populace.

Drug Industry Will Come Under Severe Pricing Scrutiny under Clinton Presidency

Under a Clinton presidency, a reduction in pharmaceutical pricing will be a priority. Clinton has had a person working on this back as far as her 2008 presidential run. Neera Tanden, president and CEO of progressive think tank the Center for American Progress (CAP) and Ezekiel Emanuel Chair of the Department of Medical Ethics and Health Policy at the University of Pennsylvania. recently argued against PhRMA’s Lori Reilly and the Manhattan Institute for Policy Research’s Paul Howard the motion that drug prices are fueling runaway. Health care costs.

We Need to Cleanse Our Society of Sexism, Racism and Greed

I’m rooting for the “just locker room talk” defense raising sufficient anger on part of wronged women and the many decent men in their lives  to finally force a discussion of this discrimination and bring the abusers  to justice.  Michele Obama is speaking to the need for our culture to finally discuss the level of sexual abuse and discrimination by men and boys against women and girls with some hope of moving forward.

We thought that we had advanced more in this regard but now we learn that this deep seated sexism along with racism and greed to advance oneself at the cost of others still needs to be torn out from the fabric of our culture. Our democracy is at risk with the selfish wanting their way with no willingness to work together or share the riches of our country. We can’t have a healthy economy until we share with each other.

Will CEOs Get Punished For Their Own and Companies’ Misdeeds?

There is a lot of anger being unearthed as the small guys/the rank and file take the fall for the big CEOs. This was true when the bank CEOs and other high up management got the “out of jail” free card after the bank mortgage scandals of 2008-2009. The disruption of so many Americans’ lives, families’ futures and individuals’ careers will never be corrected from that terrible injustice carried out like some sort of game that the unscrupulous MBAs, mortgage salesmen and bean counters pulled off to increase profits for their companies and themselves.  Some like Elizabeth Warren are still calling for their trials with seeming little hope to bring those at the top to justice—perhaps until now.

This past week  John Stumpf, the CEO of Wells Fargo Bank, suddenly retired but may not be able to skip accusation and potential trial for his role in the scam at Wells Fargo which some are sure to call “just marketing gone too far”.  When folks get mad enough, there can be an overwhelming force to bring the bad guys to justice. See details at http://money.cnn.com/2016/10/12/investing/wells-fargo-ceo-john-stumpf-retires/index.html?section=money_news_international

We are witnesses to many folks having had enough with outrageous price increases for products in the life science industry in the recent year. We may also see some sort of justice demanded by the people in the future as they learn what is behind the political protection for our “marketing-based health care system” instead of the system payer system used by the majority of advanced western societies.

You might wonder why I haven’t been commenting on the industry these past two months. I’ve thrown myself into the political campaign in support of Hillary Clinton for president with a lot of emphasis on doing whatever I can to defeat Donald Trump. You might wonder why this has distracted me from my usual interests over the years.

I see the problems in the pharmaceutical industry and biotech industry all interrelated with the political issues we face. I am shocked and horrified with the dishonesty and greed taking over the life science industry with accompanying disinterest in how pricing and business development has lost sight of the impact on our country, families and economy. The Donald epitomizes the greed and self-centeredness that I see in business in general. Our industry needs to support the industry professionals and not funnel all the profits to investors at the cost of not developing top companies to continue developing innovative products.

Lying and lack of caring about our citizen patients and industry professionals manifested itself in the shift to short-term financial interest and destruction of future companies in our industry. It’s all about the money and for the big companies the bonuses for top management and how much money can be hidden oversees to avoid taxes with crippling effect on future company development. We have lost interest in the larger community and the country which as provided the opportunity for our industry to thrive.

We cannot build future great products when the business development thinking and strategies look to sell new products as soon as possible and then lay off all the contributors and short change careers of professionals who have developed new products.
