Questcor Pharmaceuticals, Inc. Analyst Notes
On April 21, 2014, Questcor Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (Questcor) announced results from an investigator-initiated clinical study that examined the dosing and effectiveness of H.P. Acthar® Gel in 20 patients with nephrotic syndrome due to idiopathic membranous nephropathy (iMN). According to the Company, the results demonstrated that Acthar Gel is proven to be a potentially useful therapy for inducing remission of proteinuria in patients suffering from nephrotic syndrome secondary to iMN. Questcor added that the study also showed that the clearance of anti-PLA2R antibodies, an immunological marker of iMN disease activity, preceded or paralleled improvements in proteinuria as a result of Acthar treatment in patients with detectable antibody levels. The Company further stated that Acthar Gel was well tolerated by patients during the course of the study, with the most common side effects being mood changes, weight gain, and transient insomnia.

The Jevons Paradox suggests that when technological advances increase efficiency of a resource, it results in an overall increase in consumption. Writing on the increased use of coal as a result of technological improvements, 19th-century economist William Stanley Jevons found that these improvements led to the development of new ways to utilize coal. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Thiele, Chief Strategy Officer for Apcera, will compare the Jevons Paradox to modern-day enterprise IT, e...

More and more companies are looking to microservices as an architectural pattern for breaking apart applications into more manageable pieces so that agile teams can deliver new features quicker and more effectively. What this pattern has done more than anything to date is spark organizational transformations, setting the foundation for future application development. In practice, however, there are a number of considerations to make that go beyond simply “build, ship, and run,” which changes ho...
In his general session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, discussed cloud as a ‘better data center’ and how it adds new capacity (faster) and improves application availability (redundancy). The cloud is a ‘Dynamic Tool for Dynamic Apps’ and resource allocation is an integral part of your application architecture, so use only the resources you need and allocate /de-allocate resources on the fly.
Without a clear strategy for cost control and an architecture designed with cloud services in mind, costs and operational performance can quickly get out of control. To avoid multiple architectural redesigns requires extensive thought and planning.
