Depression is a common mood disorder that belongs to high-incidence mental diseases worldwide. Its main clinical features are a state of low mood and aversion to activity, and sometimes even suicidal thoughts or behaviors.

According to statistics from World Health Organization (WHO), depression is one of the most disabling diseases in the world today with over 0.3 billion sufferers worldwide. Because there are 10 to 20 million patients with suicidal thoughts every year in the world, it is said that 21 century is a ""Century of Depression"". China is going through social transformation, which is also a period with high incidence of psychological problems. Statistics shows that there are more than 30 million depression patients now in China, of which over 80% have never been treated because of low income or other issues. Depression patients take up 50% to 70% of suicides and attempted suicides in China. Obviously, depression has become a major social problem in China.

Since Eli Lilly and Company first launched duloxetine (brand name ""Cymbalta"") in August 2004, its sales revenue has been continually increasing, which nearly reached USD 5 billion in 2012.

The success of duloxetine sales also comes from its persistent exploration and study into indications. It is approved to treat adult depression by FDA and EU in August and September 2004 respectively. In September 2004 FDA approved its treatment for new important indications of diabetic peripheral neuropathic pain, making it the first drug approved for these diseases. In August 2004 duloxetine was also approved to cure women patients who lack effective treatment of moderate - severe stress urinary incontinence symptoms. Duloxetine was also authorized to treat fibromyalgia in June 2008 and chronic musculoskeletal pain in November 2010 by FDA. It is this constant innovation that makes duloxetine produced by Eli Lilly and Company best selling antidepressant worldwide. Before patent of duloxetine expired at the end of 2013, almost all famous general drug manufacturers planed to seize this great opportunity. In recent years, some pharmaceutical companies have earned provisional approvals issued by FDA.

Many manufacturers did not report the production of raw materials and preparation until 2005. However, only Shanghai Zhongxi Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd. successfully produced generic drug before duloxetine was under administrative protection, and was given the production approval of enteric-coated capsules and enteric-coated tablets. In present Chinese market, only Eli Lilly and Company and Shanghai Zhongxi Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd. are approved to sell duloxetine products. Yet in July 2013, some other manufacturers received drug registration approval of duloxetine APIs and enteric-coated tablet issued by FDA, whose products are expected to go on the market in 2014.

Containers have changed the mind of IT in DevOps. They enable developers to work with dev, test, stage and production environments identically. Containers provide the right abstraction for microservices and many cloud platforms have integrated them into deployment pipelines. DevOps and Containers together help companies to achieve their business goals faster and more effectively.
The last decade was about virtual machines, but the next one is about containers. Containers enable a service to run on any host at any time. Traditional tools are starting to show cracks because they were not designed for this level of application portability. Now is the time to look at new ways to deploy and manage applications at scale. In his session at @DevOpsSummit, Brian “Redbeard” Harrington, a principal architect at CoreOS, will examine how CoreOS helps teams run in production. Attende...
Containers are revolutionizing the way we deploy and maintain our infrastructures, but monitoring and troubleshooting in a containerized environment can still be painful and impractical. Understanding even basic resource usage is difficult - let alone tracking network connections or malicious activity. In his session at DevOps Summit, Gianluca Borello, Sr. Software Engineer at Sysdig, will cover the current state of the art for container monitoring and visibility, including pros / cons and li...
The Internet of Things (IoT) is growing rapidly by extending current technologies, products and networks. By 2020, Cisco estimates there will be 50 billion connected devices. Gartner has forecast revenues of over $300 billion, just to IoT suppliers. Now is the time to figure out how you’ll make money – not just create innovative products. With hundreds of new products and companies jumping into the IoT fray every month, there’s no shortage of innovation. Despite this, McKinsey/VisionMobile data...
Today’s connected world is moving from devices towards things, what this means is that by using increasingly low cost sensors embedded in devices we can create many new use cases. These span across use cases in cities, vehicles, home, offices, factories, retail environments, worksites, health, logistics, and health. These use cases rely on ubiquitous connectivity and generate massive amounts of data at scale. These technologies enable new business opportunities, ways to optimize and automate, al...

Overgrown applications have given way to modular applications, driven by the need to break larger problems into smaller problems. Similarly large monolithic development processes have been forced to be broken into smaller agile development cycles. Looking at trends in software development, microservices architectures meet the same demands. Additional benefits of microservices architectures are compartmentalization and a limited impact of service failure versus a complete software malfunction....
Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
