Sleep Disorders Pharmaceutical and Healthcare Pipeline Review 2017

Pune, India, 13th October 2017: WiseGuyReports announced addition of new report, titled “Sleep Disorders Drug Development Pipeline Review, 2017”.

Pune, India - October 13, 2017 /MarketersMedia/ —

This report provides an overview of the pipeline landscape for sleep disorders. The report provides comprehensive information on the therapeutics under development and key players involved in therapeutic development for Restless Legs Syndrome, Nocturia and Insomnia, and features dormant and discontinued projects.

Restless Legs Syndrome is a neurologic disorder with a core feature of a distressing, irresistible need or urge to move the legs. Risk factors for RLS include low iron levels, kidney failure, Parkinson's disease, diabetes mellitus, rheumatoid arthritis, and pregnancy.


Nocturia, or nocturnal polyuria, describes the excessive urination during night time. Nocturia becomes more common with age and may be symptomatic of the use of diuretic substances, prescription drugs, edema from heart failure, insomnia, pain and prostate or bladder disorders.

Finally, insomnia is a sleep disorder that is characterized by difficulty in falling or staying asleep. Symptoms include difficulty falling asleep at night, waking up during the night, irritability, depression and anxiety.

The size of these pipelines ranges from eight products in restless legs syndrome and nocturia to 31 in insomnia. Across all three of these indications there is a diverse range of molecular targets due to the different pathologies of the indications. The most common targets for restless legs syndrome, nocturia and insomnia therapeutics are D2 dopamine receptor, vasopressin V2 receptor and orexin receptor, respectively.

Bolivia takes sea access dispute with Chile to world court

Mar 20, 2018

THE HAGUE, Netherlands — Bolivia made an emotional appeal Monday for the International Court of Justice to order Chile to enter talks over granting its landlocked neighbor access to the Pacific Ocean, saying the dispute will remain a source of conflict if it's not resolved. Bolivia lost its only seacoast to Chile during a war that lasted between 1879 and 1883. The nation has demanded ocean access for generations and accuses Chile of reneging on pledges to negotiate. "For 139 years, Bolivia has suffered the historical injustice of becoming landlocked," former Bolivian President Eduardo Rodriguez Veltze told judges at the...

Canada announces peacekeeping mission in Mali

Mar 20, 2018

TORONTO — Canada has announced a peacekeeping effort in the West African country of Mali that includes six helicopters and some support troops. Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland said Monday the deployment will be 12 months. The mission will include two Chinook helicopters for airlift operations and four armed Griffon helicopters for escort purposes. The number of troops has not been determined yet. Mali has been in turmoil since a 2012 uprising prompted mutinous soldiers to overthrow the country's president of a decade.

Mar 20, 2018

GENEVA — President Donald Trump's nominee to head the U.N. migration agency acknowledges a controversy over his social media posts on topics like climate change and Muslims, but insists that "retweets are not endorsements" and says he wants to be judged on his actions as a humanitarian.

An intergovernmental body that became a U.N.-related agency two years ago, IOM has had only one director-general who wasn't American since...

Catalan separatist: Swiss model alternative to secession

Mar 20, 2018

GENEVA — Catalonia's fugitive ex-president says that independence for the Spanish region is not the "only option" for resolving Spain's worst political crisis in recent decades. Carles Puigdemont says that a moderate alternative could be adopting Switzerland's canton model, which presumably would give more self-rule to the already ample powers granted to Spain's regions. Puigdemont said that "'is independence the only option?' Not at all, there are others of course, and perhaps among them, the Swiss model is perhaps the most effective and the most attractive." Puigdemont was speaking at the University of Geneva where he attended a film festival...
