医疗创新的新时代

苏黎世—我们正在经历新一波医疗创新——这次创新潮有望形成世界有史以来最智能、最连通、最高效的卫生体系。改变局面的新科技和疗法正在转变医学实践,大大扭转患者体验,并未更多的突破创造条件。

证明就在数据中。去年,全世界新上市药品达到了创纪录的61种,而过去十年平均每年只有34种。这些医药的40%以上为针对罕见病或疑难杂症的对策,包括丙型肝炎、乙型脑膜炎和转移性黑色素瘤。而更多的新突破已经看到了曙光。据估计,全行业大约70%的目前正在研发的药物为潜在的“同类首种”医药,这意味着它们通过全新的行为机制对抗疾病。

这一新创新潮可以归因于三大基本因素:个性化治疗能力、加快医药上市速度的能力和改善患者参与性。

    Angela Merkel’s Endgame?

    The collapse of coalition negotiations has left German Chancellor Angela Merkel facing a stark choice between forming a minority government or calling for a new election. But would a minority government necessarily be as bad as Germans have traditionally thought?

    Preparing for the Trump Trade Wars

    In the first 11 months of his presidency, Donald Trump has failed to back up his words – or tweets – with action on a variety of fronts. But the rest of the world's governments, and particularly those in Asia and Europe, would be mistaken to assume that he won't follow through on his promised "America First" trade agenda.

    The Platform Economy

    While developed countries in Europe, North America, and Asia are rapidly aging, emerging economies are predominantly youthful. Nigerian, Indonesian, and Vietnamese young people will shape global work trends at an increasingly rapid pace, bringing to bear their experience in dynamic informal markets on a tech-enabled gig economy.

    Profiles in Discouragement

    One day, the United States will turn the page on Donald Trump. But, as Americans prepare to observe their Thanksgiving holiday, they should reflect that their country's culture and global standing will never recover fully from the wounds that his presidency is inflicting on them.

    How Women Shape Coups

    The Abnormality of Oil

    At the 2017 Abu Dhabi Petroleum Exhibition and Conference, the consensus among industry executives was that oil prices will still be around $60 per barrel in November 2018. But there is evidence to suggest that the uptick in global growth and developments in Saudi Arabia will push the price as high as $80 in the meantime.

    The Saudi Prince’s Dangerous War Games

    Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman is working hard to consolidate power and establish his country as the Middle East’s only hegemon. But his efforts – which include an attempt to trigger a war between Israel and Hezbollah in Lebanon – increasingly look like the work of an immature gambler.
