Whistleblower Success for Claudine Q. Homolash

The Pharmaceutical company Astellas Pharma US, Inc. has agreed to pay the United States a total of $7.3 million to resolve allegations that it violated the False Claims Act by illegally marketing and promoting the drug Mycamine® for pediatric use and to pediatric institutions. The settlement resolves allegations brought in a whistleblower action filed in the Eastern District of Pennsylvania in March 2010 under the False Claims Act, which permits private citizens to bring lawsuits alleging violations of the Act on behalf of the United States and to share in any recovery. The settlement resolves claims that, between 2005 and 2010, Astellas knowingly marketed and promoted the sale of Mycamine® for pediatric use, which was not a medically accepted indication and, therefore, not covered by federal health care programs. During this timeframe, the FDA approved Mycamine® to treat adult patients suffering from serious and invasive infections caused by the fungus Candida, including infections in the esophagus, the blood and the abdomen, and to prevent Candida infections in adults undergoing stem cell transplants. Up until June 2013, however, Mycamine® was not approved to treat pediatric patients for any use.

Kazakhstan Agribusiness Report Q2 2014 - New Report Available

LogoWe expect the Kazakh grain sector to outperform the rest of the agricultural complex, especially as Kazakhstan is expected to see increased export opportunities to Central Asia and China.

Germany Information Technology Report Q2 2014 - New Market Research Report

LogoDespite previous decline in sales of desktops and notebooks, as users substituted purchases to lower cost tablets, we expect solid growth of 4.1% in German IT spending in 2014 to EUR49.6bn. We expect hardware spending growth will underperform if substitution for cheaper devices continues. However, there is potential for stronger performance in our five-year forecast period to 2018, if ultra-thin notebooks and hybrids/convertibles gain traction with consumers. Software and services have a more positive outlook with cloud computing, machine-to-machine communications and big data analytics being key drivers over the medium term. Cloud computing is a particularly interesting market segment, with opportunities for local providers or global firms with a local presence, to capitalise on the negative impact of the Patriot Act and PRISM on perceptions of US providers.

Just Released: "Reinsurance in Egypt, Key Trends and Opportunities to 2017"

LogoThe political upheaval which began in Egypt in 2011 had a drastic economic impact on the country. The GDP growth rate declined from 5.1% in 2011 to 1.8% in 2011 and 2.2% in 2012. According to the Insurance Federation of Egypt (IFE), the political violence in 2011 led to losses of EGP1 billion (US$0.17 billion). In this challenging environment, reinsurance companies enforced stricter conditions in renewal agreements. In the absence of specialized domestic reinsurance companies, Egyptian insurers cede to foreign reinsurance companies such as African Re and Misr Insurance Company. Demand for reinsurance grew at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 20.3% during the review period (2008-2012), and the written premium of the Egyptian reinsurance segment increased from EGP0.21 billion (US$40 million) in 2008 to EGP0.45 billion (US$74 million) in 2012.
