Bureau Veritas Launches a New Solution to Improve Supply Chain Resilience15.7.2020 17:45:00 CESTPress release

Bureau Veritas, a world leader in testing, inspection and certification (TIC) services, is launching Supply-R, a solution designed to meet companies’ new challenges relating to supplier network reliability and ensuring business continuity in all circumstances. Organizations learned multiple lessons during the first half of 2020 on the resilience of global supply chains and their ability to face disruptions.

Octapharma Reports Positive Data from octagam ® Usage in Critically Ill COVID-19 Patients15.7.2020 17:04:00 CESTPress release

Topline results from a retrospective study in 93 critically ill COVID-19 patients have become available. The data shows that IVIG treatment reduces inflammation, which is associated with poor clinical outcomes and death, and points to an increase in survival, in critically ill COVID-19 patients, when compared to a control group. The study was conducted at the Istanbul University Hospital, Turkey, under the lead of Prof. Dr. Figen Esen. In critically ill COVID-19 patients, the cause of death often implicates an abnormal pulmonary immune response. This abnormal immune response is characterized by high levels of inflammatory markers, which are associated with poor clinical outcomes.1, 2 Acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) and multiorgan failure are major causes of mortality in COVID-19 patients.3 High levels of pro-inflammatory cytokines and chemokines are part of a severe inflammatory response known as a “cytokine storm” which may cause multiple organ dysfunction and ARDS in criti
