Two Clinical Trials Identify a Better Way to Target Appropriate Antibiotics for Patients Hospitalized With Pneumonia or Urinary Tract Infection

Two Clinical Trials Identify a Better Way to Target Appropriate Antibiotics for Patients Hospitalized With Pneumonia or Urinary Tract Infection

Two Clinical Trials Identify a Better Way to Target Appropriate Antibiotics for Patients Hospitalized With Pneumonia or Urinary Tract Infection

Algorithm driven alerts help identify best antibiotic for patients with common infections in two 59-hospital trials, with implications to reduce antibiotic resistance

NASHVILLE, Tenn. & ORANGE, Calif. & ATLANTA & BOSTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Two large multi-state studies uncovered a highly effective way to improve antibiotic selection for patients hospitalized with pneumonia or urinary tract infections (UTI), enabling better antibiotic stewardship in hospitals, according to research studies published today in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA).

Stewardship Prompts to Improve Antibiotic Selection for Pneumonia
Stewardship Prompts to Improve Antibiotic Selection for Urinary Tract Infection

The studies, led by Harvard Pilgrim Health Care Institute, HCA Healthcare and the University of California, Irvine, were funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Antibiotic resistance, which occurs when germs like bacteria and fungi mutate to defeat the drugs designed to kill them, is a major public health threat. Helping clinicians tailor antibiotic prescriptions to individual patients can improve patient outcomes by preserving healthy bacteria in the body and reducing the risk of future antibiotic resistance. The two newly published studies, the INSPIRE Pneumonia and UTI Trials, involved more than 220,000 patients with pneumonia or UTI in 59 HCA Healthcare hospitals. In half of the hospitals, clinicians were given algorithm driven computerized alerts with information about the best antibiotic match for an individual patient at the moment antibiotics were being prescribed. This resulted in a better match for 28% of pneumonia patients and 17% of patients with UTI when compared to hospitals where physicians were not provided with alerts according to the trials.

The alerts used patient characteristics from the electronic medical record as well as hospital and location-specific data to determine the patient’s risk for an antibiotic-resistant infection. Assessment of risk was based on pre-trial data from more than 200,000 HCA Healthcare patients with pneumonia and UTI. Physicians treating patients with a low risk for antibiotic-resistant bacteria were prompted to give standard-spectrum antibiotics.

“Pneumonia and urinary tract infections are two of the most common infections requiring hospitalization and a major reason for overuse of broad-spectrum antibiotics,” said Sujan Reddy, MD, Medical Officer in the Epidemiology, Research and Innovations Branch of CDC’s Division of Healthcare Quality Promotion. “The INSPIRE trials have found a highly effective way to help physicians follow treatment recommendations to optimize antibiotic selection for each patient. These trials show the value of harnessing electronic health data to improve best practice.”

Physicians often choose extended-spectrum antibiotics that cover a very broad range of bacteria out of concern that their patients could be sick with antibiotic-resistant bacteria. The INSPIRE trials identified patients with low risk for antibiotic resistance and prompted physicians to order standard-spectrum antibiotics if extended-spectrum antibiotics were being ordered. The trials found that giving physicians real-time information about their patients’ risk for antibiotic resistance worked significantly better to align antibiotic prescribing with current Infectious Diseases Society of America treatment recommendations.

“The right information at the right time can improve physician antibiotic selection,” said Shruti Gohil, MD, MPH, Assistant Professor in the Division of Infectious Diseases at the University of California, Irvine School of Medicine. “Many different bacteria can cause pneumonia or UTI, and picking the best matched antibiotic can be a challenge. Results from these trials show that giving physicians an alert informing them of their patient’s actual risk for antibiotic resistance can help them choose the best antibiotic and reduce extended-spectrum antibiotic use.”

The INSPIRE trials were ongoing when the COVID-19 pandemic began. The trials showed continued beneficial effects in antibiotic selection when other hospitals in the nation were reporting large increases in use of extended-spectrum antibiotics. Part of this benefit is attributed to having an automated prompt that continues to work when hospital resources and staff attention are diverted.

The 59 participating community hospitals spanned 12 states and are part of HCA Healthcare, the largest private inpatient healthcare system in the U.S. The size of the studies involving a wide breadth of community hospitals supports the likelihood that results are applicable to hospitals across the country.

“HCA Healthcare is committed to excellence and innovation in delivering high-quality healthcare, and we are honored to continue our longstanding collaboration with the CDC, Harvard and UCI to leverage our health system’s scale to answer clinical questions for the benefit of patients,” said Kenneth Sands, MD, MPH, chief epidemiologist at HCA Healthcare. “We began using this groundbreaking technology and workflow in the hospitals where we tested it, and have since implemented it across our entire system to improve care for individual patients while also contributing to our growing body of work supporting appropriate antibiotic use everywhere.”

The studies were conducted through a scientific consortium including HCA Healthcare, Harvard Medical School’s Department of Population Medicine at the Harvard Pilgrim Health Care Institute, the University of California, Irvine and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

$1.25 Billion Parenteral Nutrition Bags Markets by Chamber Type, Consumer, End User – Global Forecast to 2031 –

$1.25 Billion Parenteral Nutrition Bags Markets by Chamber Type, Consumer, End User – Global Forecast to 2031 –

$1.25 Billion Parenteral Nutrition Bags Markets by Chamber Type, Consumer, End User – Global Forecast to 2031 –

DUBLIN–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The “Parenteral Nutrition Bags Market by Chamber Type (Single-Chamber Bags, Dual-Chamber Bags, Multi-Chambered Bags), Consumer (Adults, Children), End User (Healthcare Facilities, Pharmacies & Compounding Service Providers) – Global Forecast to 2031” report has been added to’s offering.

The global parenteral nutrition bags market is projected to reach $1.25 billion by 2031, at a CAGR of 6.6% from 2024 to 2031.

This market is driven by the rising global prevalence of malnutrition, the large number of premature births, and the increasing incidence of metabolic disorders. Furthermore, the growing adoption of home healthcare, the rising global geriatric population, and emerging economies provide significant growth opportunities for this market. However, concerns over the infection risks associated with parenteral nutrition restrain the growth of this market. The lack of awareness regarding parenteral nutrition in developing countries is a major challenge impacting the growth of the parenteral nutrition bags market.

North America is expected to account for the largest share of the global parenteral nutrition bags market, followed by Europe, Asia-Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East & Africa. This growth is primarily driven by the growing demand for parenteral nutrition due to the prevalence of chronic & infectious diseases, the rising number of premature births, and the growing adoption of home healthcare settings.

Among chamber types, in 2024, the single-chamber parenteral nutrition bags segment is expected to account for the largest share of the parenteral nutrition bags market.

Single-chamber parenteral nutrition bags are designed to compound and store a comprehensive blend of nutritional solutions, including electrolytes, amino acids, lipids, vitamins, carbohydrates, and trace elements within a single compartment for parenteral administration. The large share of the segment is attributed to the wide availability of single-chamber empty bags, high rate of prescription for single-chamber nutrition bags, decreased risk of infection, less prescription & administration errors, and cost-effectiveness as compared to dual or multi-chambered bags.

Among consumers, in 2024, the adults segment is expected to account for the largest share of the parenteral nutrition bags market.

The rising number of surgeries, rising hospitalization rates, the growth of the geriatric population, and the increasing prevalence of gastrointestinal disorders among adults are factors supporting the largest share of the market. For instance, in 2020, the Rome Foundation of Global Epidemiology Study revealed that 40% of people worldwide suffer from diseases of the gut-brain interaction (DGBIs), such as irritable bowel syndrome, functional dyspepsia, and functional abdominal pain syndrome, among others. Most of these patients would require parenteral nutrition bags for the intake of the required nutrition.

Among end users, in 2024, the healthcare facilities segment is expected to account for the largest share of the parenteral nutrition bags market.

The large market share of this segment is attributed to factors such as a large number of patients visiting hospitals and clinics for disease diagnosis and treatment, growing disease burden, an associated rise in the rates of prescription for parenteral nutrition, and the presence of advanced compounding equipment in the hospital associated compounding pharmacies.

Executive War College to Address, Clinical Laboratories’ and Genetic Testing Firms’ Perfect Storm, involving FDA’s Proposed LDT Rule, Payers Requiring Z-Codes on Genetic Test Claims, and Revisions to CLIA Regulations

Executive War College to Address, Clinical Laboratories’ and Genetic Testing Firms’ Perfect Storm, involving FDA’s Proposed LDT Rule, Payers Requiring Z-Codes on Genetic Test Claims, and Revisions to CLIA Regulations

AUSTIN, Texas–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#CLIA–Three major challenges poised to confront the nation’s clinical laboratories, genetic test companies, and anatomic pathology laboratories will be major topics when a top-flight roster of lab experts, innovators, and lab leaders gather in New Orleans April 30-May 1, 2024, for the 29th annual Executive War College on Diagnostics, Clinical Laboratory and Pathology Management. The event takes place at the Hyatt Regency Hotel just a few minutes from the historic French Quarter and registrations point to the largest event in its history.

“This perfect storm is the simultaneous arrival of three disruptive forces hitting the medical laboratory market,” stated Robert L. Michel, producer of Executive War College and Editor-In-Chief of The Dark Report One is the Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) proposed rule to regulate laboratory developed tests (LDTs). The second is requirements by private payers that genetic test claims include Z-Codes. The third is a major rewrite and update to the CLIA regulations to which all labs must comply. Each will be disruptive to nearly all the nation’s clinical laboratories.

“To help lab leaders and pathologists prepare for this perfect storm, we’ve assembled a unique trifecta of speakers,” continued Michel. “For the first time in the history of medical laboratory testing—at one time and at one place—we are presenting the leading expert in each of these three disruptive forces. Each will speak at the same plenary session and will later conduct an open forum, as described below.”

Perfect Storm Is FDA’s LDT Rule, Private Payer Z-Code Requirements, and Revisions to CLIA Regulations

To give clinical labs and genetic testing companies an inside track to prepare for the perfect storm’s three power forces, this unique trifecta of expert speakers includes:

  • Tim Stenzel, MD, CEO, Grey Haven, LLC, retired former director of the FDA’s Office of In Vitro Devices: He will discuss the FDA’s pending FDA rule, harmonization of ISO 13485 (Medical Devices), and the FDA Memo on Reclassification of IVD tests.
  • Gabriel Bien-Willner, MD, PhD, Chief Medical Officer, Palmetto GBA’s MolDx/Z-Code Program: He will address developments involving the MolDx and Z-Code program and the differences in how federal health programs and private payers are using Z-Codes in their genetic testing guidelines and claims processing.
  • Reynolds Salerno, PhD, Director, Division of Laboratory Systems (DLS), U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC): He will cover major initiatives involving connecting clinical labs with public health labs, the DLS lab resource center, and the progress of the CLIAC Committee in updating and developing major revisions to the regulations of the Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA). The notable element here is a recommendation to define lab test data (including genetic sequence data) as a sample that must be handled in compliance with CLIA regulations.
  • Lâle White, CEO, XiFin, Inc.: She will discuss how the three forces of the perfect storm will play out within the wider changes happening to the U.S. healthcare system and the clinical laboratory testing marketplace.

Now in its 29th year and stronger than ever, Executive War College is the nation’s largest, most respected gathering on clinical lab management and operations— attracting the attendance of senior lab executives, administrators, and pathologists from all over the world who gather to learn, network, and collaborate with thought leaders, experts, and analysts in developing the right strategies for their labs. It’s why major lab industry companies actively support this unique gathering, including organizations such as XiFin, Inc., Leica BioSystems, TELCOR, Beckman Coulter, Cleveland Clinic, ARUP Laboratories, COLA, and the College of American Pathologists.

In addition to more than 90 information-packed presentations comprising an enlightening and expansive range of topics, Executive War College 2024 will also feature a 3rd day with post conference workshops and exhibits that address whole genome sequencing, digital pathology, artificial intelligence, Lean, and revenue cycle management.

“Our expert content is what differentiates the Executive War College and provides true value to our attendees,” Michel said. “The event is fine-tuned to provide real-world solutions for laboratories and pathology practices to be successful. We will navigate, propose, and present solutions to the urgent issues that continue to challenge the clinical laboratory industry, including staffing, rising costs, tightening margins, regulations, and more.”

A maximum-capacity attendance is expected at this year’s 29th Anniversary Executive War College. To register and for more information on Executive War College 2024, visit You may also contact Amanda Curtis at 512-264-7103.

LJI and RevolKa will Research Nex-gen Vaccine Antigens by using AI-driven Protein Engineering Platform

TOKYO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–RevolKa Ltd. (Norio Hamamatsu, President & CEO), a venture-backed biotech company providing a game-changing protein engineering technology platform and La Jolla Institute for Immunology (LJI) (Erica Saphire, President & CEO) agreed to start a research collaboration to create antigens for the next-generation vaccines to deliver innovative solutions to unmet medical need in infectious diseases. RevolKa has a robust directed protein evolution technology integrated with artificial intelligence (AI), called aiProtein®. LJI and RevolKa will synergize LJI’s deep knowledge of immunology and RevolKa’s power of AI-driven protein engineering. Details of this collaboration and financial terms were not disclosed.

About aiProtein® Technology

RevolKa’s proprietary technology, aiProtein® is an AI-assisted directed evolution of proteins. Naturally occurring protein is a linear polymer of amino acids and their derivatives, which folds into a tertial structure through internal complex atomic interactions to show biological function. Proteins have evolved to biologically functional molecules over hundreds of millions of years. The relationship between protein sequence, structure, and function in those highly functioned molecules remains poorly understood to rationally design a protein sequence for a particular function. Our AI engine is trained with sequence-function relationship data to statistically predict sequences for an evolved protein function. Furthermore, aiProtein® can evolve more than two functions simultaneously. This technology is a powerful and cost-effective tool for the creation of novel and highly-optimized proteins for pharmaceutical and industrial uses.

About RevolKa Ltd.

RevolKa is a venture-backed biotechnology company founded in April 2021 by academic and industry experts in biotechnology and artificial intelligence. Our mission is to create novel proteins useful for therapeutics and industries by using our own proprietary technology platform, aiProtein® to contribute to human well-being.

U.S. FDA Approves Subcutaneous Administration of Takeda’s ENTYVIO® (vedolizumab) for Maintenance Therapy in Moderately to Severely Active Crohn’s Disease

U.S. FDA Approves Subcutaneous Administration of Takeda’s ENTYVIO® (vedolizumab) for Maintenance Therapy in Moderately to Severely Active Crohn’s Disease

U.S. FDA Approves Subcutaneous Administration of Takeda’s ENTYVIO® (vedolizumab) for Maintenance Therapy in Moderately to Severely Active Crohn’s Disease

ENTYVIO is Now Available in the U.S. in Both IV and Subcutaneous Administrations for Maintenance Treatment of Adults with Moderately to Severely Active Ulcerative Colitis or Crohn’s Disease

OSAKA, Japan & CAMBRIDGE, Mass.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Takeda (TSE:4502/NYSE:TAK) today announced that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved ENTYVIO® (vedolizumab) subcutaneous (SC) administration for maintenance therapy in adults with moderately to severely active Crohn’s disease (CD) after induction therapy with intravenous (IV) ENTYVIO.1 The subcutaneous administration of ENTYVIO was also approved by FDA in September 2023 for the maintenance treatment of adults with moderately to severely active ulcerative colitis (UC) and is available in the U.S. as a single-dose prefilled pen (ENTYVIO Pen).*

The approval is based on the VISIBLE 2 Study (SC CD Trial), a Phase 3, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial, which assessed the safety and efficacy of an SC formulation of ENTYVIO as maintenance therapy in adult patients with moderately to severely active CD who had clinical response** at Week 6 following two doses of open-label vedolizumab intravenous therapy at Weeks 0 and 2.1 The primary endpoint was clinical remission*** at Week 52, which was defined as a total Crohn’s Disease Activity Index (CDAI) score of ≤150.

“Crohn’s disease is a complex and usually progressive disease for which an appropriate management plan is critical. My primary goal as a clinician is always to get patients to achieve remission. In VISIBLE 2, about half of patients treated with ENTYVIO SC achieved long-term clinical remission,” said Timothy Ritter, MD, senior medical director, Department of Research and Education, GI Alliance Research and assistant professor of medicine, TCU School of Medicine. “The data from VISIBLE 2 reaffirm the well-established efficacy profile of ENTYVIO, regardless of route of administration.”

In VISIBLE 2, a total of 409 patients were randomized at Week 6 in a double-blind fashion (2:1) to ENTYVIO 108 mg administered by SC injection or placebo every 2 weeks.1 Eligible patients included patients who had experienced an inadequate response to, loss of response to, or intolerance to at least one of the following: corticosteroids, immunomodulators (azathioprine, 6-mercaptopurine, or methotrexate), or tumor necrosis factor (TNF) blockers (including primary non-responders).

A statistically significant proportion of patients receiving ENTYVIO SC 108 mg maintenance therapy administered every 2 weeks achieved long-term clinical remission*** compared to patients receiving placebo (48% vs. 34%; p<0.01) at Week 52.1 In clinical studies, the ENTYVIO SC safety profile was generally consistent with the known safety profile of ENTYVIO IV, with the addition of injection site reactions (including injection site erythema, rash, pruritus, swelling, bruising, hematoma, pain, urticaria and edema) as an adverse reaction for ENTYVIO SC. The most common adverse reactions reported with ENTYVIO IV (incidence ≥3% and ≥1% higher than placebo) were nasopharyngitis, headache, arthralgia, nausea, pyrexia, upper respiratory tract infection, fatigue, cough, bronchitis, influenza, back pain, rash, pruritus, sinusitis, oropharyngeal pain, and pain in extremities.

“The approval of subcutaneous ENTYVIO in Crohn’s disease delivers on our goal of providing treatment options that can help patients achieve remission of their ulcerative colitis or Crohn’s disease, while also providing them flexibility and choice of route of administration. With ENTYVIO Pen, patients have the option of administering their maintenance treatment at home or on the go,” said Brandon Monk, senior vice president, head, U.S. Gastroenterology Business Unit, Takeda. “Our development of a subcutaneous option demonstrates Takeda’s commitment to meeting the very real needs of those living with gastrointestinal diseases.”

*Please refer to “U.S. FDA Approves Subcutaneous Administration of Takeda’s ENTYVIO® (vedolizumab) for Maintenance Therapy in Moderately to Severely Active Ulcerative Colitis”, dated September 27, 2023.

**Clinical response is defined as a ≥70-point decrease in Crohn’s Disease Activity Index (CDAI) score from baseline (Week 0).1

***Clinical remission is defined as CDAI score of ≤150 at Week 52.1

Takeda does not expect a material impact on the consolidated financial statements as a result of this approval.

About ENTYVIO (vedolizumab)

Vedolizumab is a biologic therapy and is approved for intravenous (IV) and subcutaneous (SC) administration (approvals vary by market).1,2 Vedolizumab SC has been granted marketing authorization in the United States, European Union and more than 50 countries. Vedolizumab IV has been granted marketing authorization in more than 70 countries, including the United States and European Union. Globally, vedolizumab IV and SC have more than one million patient years of exposure to date.3 Vedolizumab is a humanized monoclonal antibody designed to specifically antagonize the alpha4beta7 integrin, inhibiting the binding of alpha4beta7 integrin to intestinal mucosal addressin cell adhesion molecule 1 (MAdCAM-1), but not vascular cell adhesion molecule 1 (VCAM-1).4 MAdCAM-1 is preferentially expressed on blood vessels and lymph nodes of the gastrointestinal tract.5 The alpha4beta7 integrin is expressed on a subset of circulating white blood cells.4 These cells have been shown to play a role in mediating the inflammatory process in ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease.4,6,7 By inhibiting alpha4beta7 integrin, vedolizumab may limit the ability of certain white blood cells to infiltrate gut tissues.4



ENTYVIO is contraindicated in patients who have had a known serious or severe hypersensitivity reaction to ENTYVIO or any of its excipients.


  • Infusion-Related and Hypersensitivity Reactions: Infusion-related reactions and hypersensitivity reactions including anaphylaxis, dyspnea, bronchospasm, urticaria, flushing, rash, and increased blood pressure and heart rate have been reported. These reactions may occur with the first or subsequent infusions and may vary in their time of onset from during infusion or up to several hours post-infusion. If anaphylaxis or other serious infusion-related or hypersensitivity reactions occur, discontinue administration of ENTYVIO immediately and initiate appropriate treatment.
  • Infections: Patients treated with ENTYVIO are at increased risk for developing infections. Serious infections have been reported in patients treated with ENTYVIO, including anal abscess, sepsis (some fatal), tuberculosis, salmonella sepsis, Listeria meningitis, giardiasis, and cytomegaloviral colitis. ENTYVIO is not recommended in patients with active, severe infections until the infections are controlled. Consider withholding ENTYVIO in patients who develop a severe infection while on treatment with ENTYVIO. Exercise caution in patients with a history of recurring severe infections. Consider screening for tuberculosis (TB) according to the local practice.
  • Progressive Multifocal Leukoencephalopathy (PML): PML, a rare and often fatal opportunistic infection of the central nervous system (CNS), has been reported with systemic immunosuppressants, including another integrin receptor antagonist. PML typically only occurs in patients who are immunocompromised. One case of PML in an ENTYVIO-treated patient with multiple contributory factors has been reported. Although unlikely, a risk of PML cannot be ruled out. Monitor patients for any new or worsening neurological signs or symptoms that may include progressive weakness on one side of the body or clumsiness of limbs, disturbance of vision, and changes in thinking, memory, and orientation leading to confusion and personality changes. If PML is suspected, withhold dosing with ENTYVIO and refer to neurologist; if confirmed, discontinue ENTYVIO dosing permanently.
  • Liver Injury: There have been reports of elevations of transaminase and/or bilirubin in patients receiving ENTYVIO. ENTYVIO should be discontinued in patients with jaundice or other evidence of significant liver injury.
  • Live and Oral Vaccines: Prior to initiating treatment with ENTYVIO, all patients should be brought up to date with all immunizations according to current immunization guidelines. Patients receiving ENTYVIO may receive non-live vaccines and may receive live vaccines if the benefits outweigh the risks.


The most common adverse reactions (incidence ≥3% and ≥1% higher than placebo) were: nasopharyngitis, headache, arthralgia, nausea, pyrexia, upper respiratory tract infection, fatigue, cough, bronchitis, influenza, back pain, rash, pruritus, sinusitis, oropharyngeal pain, pain in extremities, and injection site reactions with subcutaneous administration.


Because of the potential for increased risk of PML and other infections, avoid the concomitant use of ENTYVIO with natalizumab products and with TNF blockers. Upon initiation or discontinuation of ENTYVIO in patients treated with CYP450 substrates, monitor drug concentrations or other therapeutic parameters, and adjust the dosage of the CYP substrate as needed.


Adult Ulcerative Colitis (UC):

ENTYVIO is indicated in adults for the treatment of moderately to severely active UC.

Adult Crohn’s Disease (CD):

ENTYVIO is indicated in adults for the treatment of moderately to severely active CD.


  • ENTYVIO Intravenous (IV) Infusion: 300 mg vedolizumab
  • ENTYVIO Subcutaneous (SC) Injection: 108 mg vedolizumab

About Ulcerative Colitis and Crohn’s Disease

Ulcerative colitis (UC) and Crohn’s disease (CD) are two of the most common forms of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD).8 Both UC and CD are chronic, relapsing, remitting, inflammatory conditions of the gastrointestinal tract.9,10 UC only involves the large intestine as opposed to CD, which can affect any part of the GI tract from mouth to anus.11,12 CD can also affect the entire thickness of the bowel wall, while UC only involves the innermost lining of the large intestine.11,12 UC can present with symptoms of abdominal discomfort or loose bowel movements, including blood.11,13 CD can present with symptoms of abdominal pain, diarrhea, and weight loss.12 The cause of UC or CD is not fully understood; however, research suggests that an interplay between environmental factors, genetics, and intestinal microbiota may contribute to the development of UC or CD.11,14,9
