Natural Products and new drugs
Go! who would say that some nutritional supplements are doing so good that some pharmaceutical companies have sought to buy the patent.
Remember that most new drugs have been generated from natural products (secondary metabolites) and compounds derived from natural products. But in the last 15 years research of pharmaceutical industry in natural products has declined, as new drug approvals and the impending loss of patent protection for important medicines.
Despite this, all is not lost, as indicated by a study in Science this month there are new technologies http://twurl.nl/1icju3 (metabolic engineering, robotic separation with structural analysis, advances in rapid genetics sequencing and manipulation of biosynthetic pathways) that can provide vast resources for the discovery of new drugs.
Comments: 1 .- You believe that the industry of natural products and nutritional supplements are going to stand idly by? But while the public benefits from any discovery of any new industry, that is welcome.
2 .- The pharmaceutical industry profits are not shared and it is right, is their business; while companies working in multilevel (network marketing ) come to share up until 70% of the profits and passive income.That is why it is recommended by millionaires like D. Trump and R. Kiyosaki.
3 .- It is commendable the business philosophy of these companies, besides worry for our health and welfare, so too do the financial aspect and solve two of the cornerstones of life: Health and Money, the other, Love comes in addition, dont you believe?
