QuikMeds Dispensing in Doctor's Offices
mukotort
I have always supported drug dispersal at the MD's office, considering 30% of prescriptions never get filled. My only concern (and why pharmacists are needed) is that viagra cialis online pharmacy pharmacy errors can easily occur since their is no human interaction. Sure the nurse checks to make sure that it is the correct drug and dosage, but how can he/she be sure the label matches what is inside of the bottle?

Imagine seeing your doctor and getting a prescription filled all in one shot.

Now, a new in-office vending machine could save patients an extra trip to the drug store.

"It takes us two minutes, three minutes to process it," said Dr. Madeleine Weiser. "It's very quick."

Doctor Weiser says she installed the Quiqmeds system in her office to save patients time and money.

"You're giving the patient the exact same thing that you would be ordering at a pharmacy," said Dr. Weiser. "But you're able to deliver sometimes a larger quantity for a similar price or a better price."

The dispensing machine holds mostly cost-saving generics.

Instead of writing a prescription on a pad, the doctor logs into the system using a security code and orders the medication on a touch screen.

"I pick what kind of dosage I want to give, whether it's one teaspoon two times a day or three times a day," said Dr. Weiser. "So, I have full control over it. There's no confusion as to what I want."

While a printer churns out personalized instructions, the machine coughs up the medication.

"When it's right here and you can answer their questions and it really saves on the phone calls that go back and forth to clarify sometimes medication orders," said Dr. Weiser.

The prescription is at the front desk by the time the patient checks out.

Some doctors say the Quiqmeds system improves compliance among patients.

Depending on the state, doctors who use the machine make a minimal profit on each prescription.

Rush Limbaugh, Viagra and Screamers
mukotort
It was interesting to watch a few weeks ago about how Rush Limbaugh was detained at the Customs Office in Palm Beach, Florida. Limbaugh's attorneys have claimed that the cheap viagra was prescribed using the name of Limbaugh's physician to protect Limbaugh's privacy. And that was the case

A week ago Monday, I get back from three days, two-and-a-half days, in the Dominican Republic, and most of the time spent touring cigar factories and cigar farms. I had this bottle of cialis in my briefcase. I've had it in there since December. I forgot it was even in there. There were 30 pills prescribed, and when they counted them out, there were 29 -- and yet, everybody thinks I loaded up on the stuff for a trip to the Dominican Republic, and that's what everybody was saying. "Wow, what went on in the Dominican Republic? Oh! (muttering)." In fact, when I cleared Customs there was this... I'm going to be very restrained in describing the agent but... I'll save that for another time. Anyway, I pointed out I have a briefcase that's got many different zippers. It's not a top that closes over a bottom. It's this thing that stands up; it's got side pockets and all that, and I opened the primary compartment where most of the things in the briefcase are, just to be cooperative, and she reaches in there, pulls out this bottle, says, "What have we here?" There are twenty-five people in the room. "What have we here? Viagra!" she shouts, "and look, it's not your name on the bottle! This is a crime! This is a violation of law!"

She's shouting this all over the Customs Office, and the whole room has come to a dead stop, and she races behind some closed door to her supervisor. The supervisor comes out and asks, "How many other prescriptions do you have, sir?"

"I've got two."

"They have your name on it?"

"Yes."

"What are they?"

"Look at 'em."

He said, "Well, what's this?"

I said, "I had an intestinal blockage in December. They're for
that."

"Oh. How much cash are you carrying?" I started to pull my cash out.

He said, "I don't care to see it, just tell me."

I said, "Less than $1,500."

"Okay." I had a little white bag of things and he opened it.

"What's this?"

I said, "Those are cuff links and golf balls from President Bush. I had lunch with him last Friday in the White House and dinner with your boss, Secretary Chertoff, the night before at the Supreme Court."

"Well, sir, I have to tell you that this is a violation of law, and we have called authorities in Miami and blah, blah," and they detained me for three or four hours and whatever it was, and actually it was the state attorney's office here that ended the whole thing by sending some sheriff deputies over and finally getting a statement from me and taking the case under their jurisdiction, and they today said there's no crime here, and they've announced it but the media is still reporting all over the place all the effects of the deal that could have been thwarted had this been prosecuted and regurgitating facts that were not part of this story at all.

I had some friends with me, and they were standing aside. This actually started this way. When you come into Customs in Palm Beach on a private airplane, this is one of the few Customs offices that I've ever dealt with -- and they know you're coming, by the way, because you have to give them your passport name and ID, passport number, date of birth and all sort of stuff of all the passengers on the airplane a week before you depart. So there's an inbound list and they know who's coming in that day. It's required by law. So somebody in there knew I was coming in, and from what I was told from people that were there during the time I was there, mine was the only luggage that was searched.

In fact, they didn't search the luggage. They just searched my briefcase and the little white bag, and they made me open my computer. But they bring all the bags off of the airplane. I had four guys with me, and they were going on to Miami. I was going to put 'em on the airplane to take them to Miami to catch a commercial flight to Los Angeles. So we get in the Customs office, get my stamp on the passport as having reentered the country and I start helping the luggage guys distinguish my luggage from all the others, because they've mixed it. They've got three carts, so I want my luggage on one cart since I am leaving, and the other four guys' luggage on other carts that go straight out to the airplane and I'm over there helping, and this agent says, "What are you doing? This is Customs! You haven't been cleared," and I smiled.

I said, "I'm just trying to expedite my friends getting outta here when we finish because they're going to Miami." So I went over there and that's when this whole process started. So somebody in there had to be waiting. I think this was leaked before I got out of there. I think it was in the news before I actually was in the car on the way home. But anyway, there was never any "there" there. It is not illegal to possess Viagra. It's like saying it's illegal to possess Prilosec or some other non- controlled substance that's prescribed for things, like, what is Prilosec for? Antacid medicine or what have you. So that's it. I appreciate the call out there, Jeff, but it's over now.


That happened on June 26, last month not too long ago. Recently this Thursday, “The Smoking Gun” website published the Homeland Security manifest, including the June 29 affidavit signed by Rush Limbaugh, describing Limbaugh's detention in Palm Beach, Florida by screaming custom officials. Of course, the driveby media took cue from the screamer to become the screamers themselves who were on hand to ensure a complete but rather unjustified embarrassment of Rush Limbaugh of the viagra incident at the Customs Office who have somehow leaked it to the press. And because of this incident Rush has decided to cancel any future international travel until after the 2008 election knowing there are idiots out there who will try and do anything to discredit Rush Limbaugh and his radio show. This viagra thing isn't over yet. Look for more digging by the driveby media "screamers" as to why he was traveling with four other men--including the producers of the hit show "24" on an “all boys” trip to the Dominican Republic.

And so it all come down to this, the Viagra was prescribed using the name of Limbaugh's physician to protect Limbaugh's privacy and no laws were broken despite the driveby media continued screaming until blue in the face.

A strong desire to see Limbaugh brought down artificially raised hopes, causing some to indulge in premature incarceration speculation. News accounts were inflated to ridiculous proportions, but the intensity could not be kept up and the Limbaugh-in-jail scenario the media erected has now come tumbling down.


Very funny.

As always, the driveby media continue to grasp straws here. Just like the screamers. Nice try though. Next time, go after Hillary Clinton.

Conatus Pharmaceuticals - Phase II data on Hepatitis C MMP inhibitor CTS-1027 to be presented at EAS
mukotort
Privately-held Conatus Pharmaceuticals will have two posters on the Phase II trial of it's cheap cialis of matrix metalloprotease (MMP) activity, CTS-1027 - the only MMP inhibitor currently in development for HCV at this time.



Conatus Pharmaceuticals Inc. today announced the acceptance of two poster presentations of Phase 2 clinical trial data of CTS-1027 for the treatment of hepatitis C virus-infected patients at the 46th annual meeting of the European Association for the Study of the Liver (EASL) to be held in Berlin, Germany, on March 30 to April 3, 2011.



Specifically, abstract 562 entitled: 24-WEEK TREATMENT WITH CTS-1027 IN COMBINATION WITH RIBAVIRIN REDUCES HCV-RNA IN TREATMENT NAIVE GENOTYPE-1 PATIENTS will be presented.



In addition, abstract 549 entitled: UNIQUE PATTERN OF VIROLOGIC RESPONSE IN PATIENTS WITH GENOTYPE-1 HCV: A PHASE II STUDY OF CTS-1027 IN COMBINATION WITH PEGINTEFERON/RIBAVIRIN (SOC) IN NULL RESPONDERS will also be presented.



"This will be the first public disclosure of these exciting clinical results and represents a significant step forward to raise awareness of CTS-1027 for the treatment of HCV," said Alfred P. Spada, Ph.D., Senior Vice President, Research and Development at Conatus.



"CTS-1027 is a first-in-class oral, small molecule inhibitor of host matrix metalloprotease (MMP) activity. There are no other drugs under development for HCV that operate by the same mechanism of action. Most other approaches to treat HCV infection are direct-acting anti-viral drugs whose activity is directed against virus proteins or enzymes with the objective of reducing the production of virus in infected cells. CTS-1027 by comparison is distinctly different in that its activity is hypothesized to facilitate the immune clearance of virus-infected cells and decrease the frequency of new infections, both of which are of key importance in curing HCV infections," said Steven J. Mento, Ph.D, President and CEO of Conatus.



Conatus Pharmaceuticals Inc. is a privately-held biopharmaceutical company engaged in the development of innovative human therapeutics to treat liver disease and oncology. Conatus' lead drug candidate, CTS-1027 is in multiple Phase 2 clinical trials for the treatment of hepatitis C virus (HCV). Conatus was founded by the executive management team of Idun Pharmaceuticals in July 2005 following the sale of Idun to Pfizer.
