Novartis: Layoffs as a Sign of Productivity Crisis in R&D; The CBCD Offers New Technology to Aid in Drug Discovery
Date:11/11/2013

diate word from Novartis on what it intends to do with its huge global R&D effort, which consumes more than $9 billion a year. Novartis has long held the title for the largest R&D budget in the industry…most of the Big Pharmas have triggered some sort of R&D reorganization over the past few years, though Novartis was always one of the few exceptions to the rule (2).”

The CBCD believes that the proposed layoffs and restructuring of Novartis’ global R&D efforts are a direct result of the challenges they face in R&D, and would like to offer to Novartis and other pharmaceutical companies, a new technology to overcome R&D challenges. This technology is called ‘Computer Intuition.’

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 (‘Computer Intuition’) hints at future events (3).”

“The following is a description of one prospective application of Computer Intuition. In 1995, Frederiksen published a paper entitled: Diagnostic Imaging in Dental Implantology. At the time, Frederiksen was one of the world leading experts on the subject. To test the pre-dictive power of the Computer Intuition analysis, Almog and Heisler from the University of Rochester devised a test. They conduc
