Productivity Crisis in Pharmaceutical Industry Increases Drug Prices; The CBCD Offers New Technology to Aid in Drug Discovery

High prices only benefit the pharmaceutical industry.

As Barry Werth, author of “The Billion Dollar Molecule” wrote, “There are inherent problems with a system where the government is one of the biggest payers, and where doctors, hospitals, insurers, pharmacy benefit managers, drug companies, and investors all expect to profit handsomely from treating sick people, no matter how little real value they add to patients’ lives or to society. Drug companies insist that they need to make billions of dollars on their medicines because their failure rate is so high and because they need to convince investors it is wise to sink money into research… (1).”

The high failure rate, which everyone accepts as given, is another term used instead of ‘productivity crisis.’

The CBCD believes that the high failure rate and the productivity crisis are not ‘given.’ They are not set in stone. There is a way to overcome the low rates of R&D success. There is a new technology called ‘Computer Intuition’ that can help pharmaceutical companies to fill their empty pipelines, increase overall profits, satisfy investors, and reduce costs to society.

What is ‘Computer Intuition?’

‘Computer Intuition’ is a psycholinguistic-based data-mining program that analyzes scientific text and helps scientists discover new therapeutic features of chemical entities.
In September 2013, the medical journal Pharmacology & Pharmacy, in a special edition on Advances in Antiviral Drugs, published a clinical study, which showed that the dietary supplement Gene-Eden-VIR is safe and effective. Gene-Eden-VIR was developed using ‘Computer Intuition.’ The results of this clinical study show that ‘Computer Intuition’ can predict clinical results.

“In 1996…a prototype of a psycholinguistic-based data-mining program that analyzes scientific text and assigns a rating to all ideas found in the text” was completed (3). “The higher the rating, the more (‘C
