In collaboration with The FH Foundation, Express Scripts expands access to PCSK9 inhibitors for those with FH.

PASADENA, Calif., March 15, 2017 /360WiseNews/ — The FH Foundation, a patient-centered non-profit dedicated to research, advocacy, and education of all forms of familial hypercholesterolemia (FH), today announced its collaboration with Express Scripts, a leading pharmacy benefit manager, to improve pharmacy coverage for patients with FH, an inherited genetic disorder that causes high LDL-cholesterol from birth. With a more comprehensive set of diagnostic criteria, a broader group of patients will have access to cutting-edge PCSK9 inhibitor treatment, as appropriate.

“The FH Foundation applauds Express Scripts for its leadership, working with the FH Foundation to ensure that high-risk FH patients, for whom these novel therapies were approved, will have access to the care their healthcare provider has recommended,” said Katherine Wilemon, Founder and CEO of the Foundation. “Collaboration and open communication among stakeholders in the fragmented US healthcare system are vital to informing and delivering optimum care and improving health of the American public.”

More than 1.3 million Americans, or 1 in 250 people, suffer from FH, a genetic disorder that can significantly increase the risk for early heart disease and even death. Often undistinguished from other causes of high cholesterol, FH is under-diagnosed and undertreated. However, with early diagnosis and optimal treatment, the risk for heart disease can be lowered to almost that of the general population.

With these new, more inclusive criteria put into practice by Express Scripts last month, patients with an untreated LDL-cholesterol (LDL-C) equal to or greater than 190 mg/dL whose LDL-cholesterol is still over 70 mg/dL on maximally tolerated statins plus Zetia will qualify for prior authorization for a prescribed PCSK9 inhibitor. Other diagnostic criteria to better define the condition of FH were also added. Keep Reading

STAT alleges that the scheme allowed the Company to inflate the number of test orders it reported to investors.

International Medical Corps and Conrad N. Hilton Foundation Launch The Things We Carry Campaign, Highlighting Plight of Syrian Refugees

LOS ANGELES, March 7, 2017 /360WiseNews/ — In an effort to keep public attention on the ongoing needs of millions of Syrian refugees, International Medical Corps and the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation are launching The Things We Carry, a campaign featuring the children, men and women who have fled six years of war in their country – and what they carried with them to safety.

The campaign, which will roll out across media platforms, includes an interactive tool for viewers to choose what they would carry with them if they were suddenly forced from their homes – and to explore the stories of twelve Syrians who faced that agonizing choice.

“While this war has been grinding on for nearly six years, and global attention has ebbed and flowed in that time, the Syrian people continue to endure tremendous suffering, and we must not forget them,” said Rebecca Milner, Vice President of Institutional Advancement for International Medical Corps. “Our goal with this campaign is to help people imagine what it’s like to have to flee your home at a moment’s notice, to save your life or that of your family – and to be able to take only one thing with you. What would that one thing be? For these refugees, leaving their homes and everything they know is not a choice, but a matter of life and death.”

“While the suffering of Syrian refugees continues, international humanitarian response increasingly falls short of what is needed to address their growing needs,” said Shaheen Kassim-Lakha, Director of International Programs for the Hilton Foundation.  “With millions of refugees rapidly turning into a lost generation, it is vital to develop innovative communications campaigns such as this to bring more attention to the crisis.”

International Medical Corps operates in Syria, Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon, and Turkey, delivering lifesaving medical relief and training programs aimed at helping people recover, rebuild and become their own best first responders.  The Hilton Foundation has been supporting International Medical Corps’ programs for Syrian refugees in Turkey since 2013.

To participate in the campaign, visit The Things We Carry social media toolkit.

Since its inception 30 years ago, International Medical Corps‘ mission has been consistent: relieve the suffering of those impacted by war, natural disaster, and disease by delivering vital health care services that focus on training. This approach of helping people help themselves is critical to returning devastated populations to self-reliance. For more information visit: www.InternationalMedicalCorps.org. Also visit us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter.

The Conrad N. Hilton Foundation was created in 1944 by international business pioneer Conrad N. Hilton, who founded Hilton Hotels and left his fortune to help the world’s disadvantaged and vulnerable people. The Foundation currently conducts strategic initiatives in six priority areas: providing safe water, ending chronic homelessness, preventing substance use, helping young children affected by HIV and AIDS, supporting transition-age youth in foster care, and extending Conrad Hilton’s support for the work of Catholic Sisters. In addition, following selection by an independent international jury, the Foundation annually awards the $2 million Conrad N. Hilton Humanitarian Prize to a nonprofit organization doing extraordinary work to alleviate human suffering. In 2016, the Humanitarian Prize was awarded to The Task Force for Global Health, an international, nonprofit organization that works to improve health of people most in need, primarily in developing countries. From its inception, the Foundation has awarded more than $1.5 billion in grants, distributing $109 million in the U.S. and around the world in 2016. The Foundation’s current assets are approximately $2.6 billion. For more information, please visit www.hiltonfoundation.org.

The Beast Returns – Madame Tussauds New York Launches All-New Kong: Skull Island Experience

in Animals/BREAKING NEWS/Partnership/Press Release by
Reading Time: 5 minutes

Featuring an 18-ft tall Roaring Animatronic Kong head and the first-ever wax figure of Tom Hiddleston

NEW YORK, March 7, 2017 /360WiseNews/ — Today, Madame Tussauds New York and Madame Tussauds London in partnership with Legendary Pictures and Warner Bros. Pictures have officially unleashed KONG: Skull Island, an all-new, multi-sensory experience based on the upcoming film hitting theaters March 10th.  The iconic Times Square attraction now offers its intrepid guests the one-of-a-kind chance to fully immerse themselves in the film’s environment, take a journey through the jungle and come face to face with an over 18-foot tall animatronic head of mythical monster … if they dare.

Visitors will quickly forget that they are in the middle of Manhattan, as they become entirely immersed in the tropical jungle of Skull Island. Journeying through bamboo, foliage and vines, they will encounter the first ever wax likeness of British actor Tom Hiddleston, portraying the film’s heroic Captain James Conrad. Well equipped with binoculars, a holster and gun, the figure was styled with the help of Legendary Pictures film stylists to perfectly portray the brave and resilient character.

Evading the traps of a colossal Mother Long-Legs spider, visitors will come face-to face with the over eighteen-foot, monstrous animatronic Kong head – a first for the iconic wax brand. True to the scale of beast portrayed in the film, the head took a team of 33 artists over 72 days to build. Weighing in at over 3,000 lbs, it required over 350 square feet of specialist faux hair and took approximately four weeks to hand paint. Each movement of the head, eyes and lips use state-of-the-art pneumatic controls, designed specifically for this figure. The system precisely controls the pressure and flow of air to recreate life like facial movements, grunts, snorts and roars made by the ferocious beast.  Guests will feel the intensity and the power of this monstrous animal, with every step they take.

“I think it’s great that there’s a Kong Skull Island experience at Madame Tussauds,” said Tom Hiddleston. “The idea that I’m going to be part of that exhibition is remarkable, and not something I ever expected.

“I hope when people come face-to-face with Kong himself they get some sense of what it might be like. Probably, a better sense than I had, because when I made the film, Kong wasn’t there, we had to imagine him. If people love the Kong character, they’ll love the Madame Tussauds head.”

“Madame Tussauds is famous for providing the most authentic, thrilling and fun experiences for our guests so we are excited to launch our largest ever animatronic today as part of KONG: Skull Island,” said Anna Domingo, General Manager of Madame Tussauds New York. “We worked closely with Legendary Pictures to ensure our animatronic head is made to the exact film-scale, so visitors really will come face-to-face and feel the power and scale of the Kong depicted on the big screen.”

MADAME TUSSUADS KONG ANIMATRONIC FACTS

  • It took 33 people over 72 Days to build
  • The head weighs over 3,000 lbs
  • You’d have to climb 30 stairs to reach the top of Kong’s head
  • At 90 dB, Kong’s roar is the sound of a Boeing 737 about to land
  • Each eye is 22 inches wide and uses laser radar to follow you around the room
  • Over 1,000 bolts hold this beast together
  • Kong’s facial movements are each controlled by a separate microprocessor communicating together.  Basically Kong’s nervous system is like a mini internet.
  • The roar effect releases 240 PSI of high pressure air in four seconds

KONG: Skull Island is a permanent addition to Madame Tussauds New York and is included in the price of regular admission.

ABOUT MADAME TUSSAUDS NEW YORK AND MERLIN ENTERTAINMENTS

Madame Tussauds New York, prominently located in the heart of Times Square, is more than just a wax museum; it is an iconic “must do” New York experience and home of the Ghostbusters Experience. There are no velvet ropes or obtrusive barriers to keep guests from interacting with over 200 of the world’s most recognizable and influential icons.

The goals of the Partnership are to:

  • Prevent firearm-related, unintentional deaths and suicides among children and teens
