Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is one of the most appropriate conditions for the application of personalised medicine as a high degree of heterogeneity has been recognised, which remains to be explained. Such heterogeneity is also reflected in the large number of treatment targets and options. A growing number of biologics as well as small molecules are already in use and there are promising new drugs in development. In order to make the best use of treatment options, both targeted and non-targeted biomarkers have to be identified and validated. To this aim, new rules are needed for the interaction between academia and industry under regulatory control. Setting up multi-centre biosample collections with clear definition of access, organising early, possibly non-committing discussions with regulatory authorities, and defining a clear route for the validation, qualification and registration of the biomarker-drug combination are some of the more critical areas where effective collaboration between the drug industry, academia and regulators is needed.

On 4 July 2005, many observatories around the world and in space observed the collision of Deep Impact with comet 9P/Tempel 1 or its aftermath. This was an unprecedented coordinated observational campaign. These data show that (i) there was new material after impact that was compositionally different from that seen before impact; (ii) the ratio of dust mass to gas mass in the ejecta was much larger than before impact; (iii) the new activity did not last more than a few days, and by 9 July the comet's behavior was indistinguishable from its pre-impact behavior; and (iv) there were interesting transient phenomena that may be correlated with cratering physics.

The Raman spectrum of gallium oxide (beta-Ga2O3) nanowires with [001] growth direction is identical to that of the bulk Ga2O3 [Y. C. Choi Adv. Mater. 12, 746 (2000)] while that of beta-Ga2O3 nanowires ... [more ▼]

The Raman spectrum of gallium oxide (beta-Ga2O3) nanowires with [001] growth direction is identical to that of the bulk Ga2O3 [Y. C. Choi Adv. Mater. 12, 746 (2000)] while that of beta-Ga2O3 nanowires with [40 (1) over bar] growth direction is redshifted by 4-23 cm(-1) [Y. H. Gao Appl. Phys. Lett. 81, 2267 (2002)]. Here we report the Raman and Fourier transform infrared spectra of beta-Ga2O3 nanowires with [110] growth direction which is blueshifted relative to the bulk spectra by similar to 10-40 cm(-1). Based on a first principles calculation of the strain dependence of Raman mode frequencies in bulk beta-Ga2O3, we correlate the observed frequency shifts to growth-direction-induced internal strains in the nanowires.
