Resistance diagnosis and the changing economics of antibiotic discovery.

07:00 EST 10th January 2017 | BioPortfolio

Summary of "Resistance diagnosis and the changing economics of antibiotic discovery."

Point-of-care diagnostics that can determine an infection's antibiotic sensitivity increase the profitability of new antibiotics that enjoy patent protection, even when such diagnostics reduce the quantity of antibiotics sold. Advances in the science and technology underpinning rapid resistance diagnostics can therefore be expected to spur efforts to discover and develop new antibiotics, especially those with a narrow spectrum of activity that would otherwise fail to find a market.

The combined discipline of psychology and economics that investigates what happens in markets in which some of the agents display human limitations and complications.

Economic aspects of the fields of pharmacy and pharmacology as they apply to the development and study of medical economics in rational drug therapy and the impact of pharmaceuticals on the cost of medical care. Pharmaceutical economics also includes the economic considerations of the pharmaceutical care delivery system and in drug prescribing, particularly of cost-benefit values.
