Characterize skin physiology parameters utilized in dermal physiologically-based pharmacokinetic model development across different skin disease states

NIH Funding Opportunities - Tue, 03/20/2018 - 08:19
Funding Opportunity RFA-FD-18-017 from the NIH Guide for Grants and Contracts. The purpose of this project is to identify skin physiology characteristics that differ between healthy and skin disease population groups and incorporate them into dermal physiologically-based pharmacokinetic models to improve their predictability. The models developed will be utilized to perform virtual bioequivalence assessments between brand name and generic drug products to inform regulatory decisions relating to the development of generic topical dermatological drug products and transdermal delivery systems.

US, EU hardwood imports fuel Amazon destruction: Greenpeace

Yahoo Science News feed latest items - Tue, 03/20/2018 - 07:35

Scores of US and European companies selling the hardwood ipe for things like decks and garden furniture are fueling an illegal trade devastating the Amazon rainforest, Greenpeace said Tuesday. Greenpeace said Brazilian loggers and corrupt officials run sophisticated laundering scams that allow them to cut down far more of the majestic tree than allowed, yet still obtain the official documents needed to export at huge profits. "It is safe to say that it is almost impossible to guarantee if timber from the Brazilian Amazon can be assumed to have originated from legal operations," said Romulo Batista, Greenpeace Brazil's Amazon campaigner.

Climate change could force millions of people to move within countries

Yahoo Science News feed latest items - Mon, 03/19/2018 - 21:52

While conflict and economic reasons are often the biggest factors for people moving within countries, climate change will soon have its own part to play. By 2050, 140 million people could be forced to migrate internally as the effects of global warming exacerbate problems like water scarcity, crop failure, rising sea levels and storm surges, according to a new report. SEE ALSO: What you learn by giving 200 Senate speeches on climate change World Bank report Groundswell: Preparing for Internal Climate Migration analyses the effects climate change will have on three regions: Sub-Saharan Africa, South Asia, and Latin America, a group that represents 55 percent of the world's developing population. It warns that a lack of action on climate could intensify the global refugee crisis in the future, and that governments need to plan for communities and populations that will inevitably have to move from their homes because of climate-induced problems. "Without the right planning and support, people migrating from rural areas into cities could be facing new and even more dangerous risks," the report’s team lead Kanta Kumari Rigaud said in a statement.  "We could see increased tensions and conflict as a result of pressure on scarce resources. But that doesn’t have to be the future. While internal climate migration is becoming a reality, it won't be a crisis if we plan for it now." The hotspots for climate migration The report identifies "hotspots" where people are likely going to move or settle within Ethiopia, Bangladesh and Mexico because of climate change. In Ethiopia, people are predicted to move away from the northern highlands due to declines in crop productivity, as well as from its capital Addis Ababa, due to rapidly diminishing water availability. It's likely migrants will move to the southern highlands or secondary cities in the east. People are projected to move away from Bangladesh's northeast and around Dhaka, with heat stress and flooding already a problem for the latter.  The most urbanised country of the three, Mexico, is predicted to have people moving from low-lying, flood-threatened areas on the southern coast, as well as from the arid north, to the country's central plateau, where Mexico City and other urban areas lie. The report comes following studies which have tied Syria's civil war to climate change — a preview of things to come with regards to climate change-induced immigration.
