For months and months speculation was rife about the Apple Watch (or iWatch as was the expected moniker) and the possible implications and applications for healthcare. Then we had the 9th March launch event in San Francisco and theApple Watch seemed to sink like a lead balloon in the minds of health technology enthusiasts. This was aided by articles such as the one in the Wall Street Journal that claimed much of the exciting health sensor technology had been scrapped and asked: What Exactly Is an Apple Watch For? (Subscription required)
I believe that technology only becomes socially interesting when it becomes technologically boring. We can only really impact health at scale when we utilise technology that has true mainstream reach. However I feel there are still a number of key reasons the Apple Watch is worth thinking about for healthcare broadly, and pharmaceutical companies specifically. Here are five reasons pharma should care as we approach the April 24th Apple Watch launch date
Numerous UK-based pharmacists and pharmacology experts are making their voices heard via public social media, tweeting about pharmacy-related modules, writing about transforming urgent care services, or blogging about the relationship between community pharmacies and GP surgeries.
If the aspirations of pharmacy fulfilling a clinical role integral to public healthcare is ever to be realised, community pharmacists must shift their focus away from dispensing and towards providing health services.
“Two novel siderophores, chlorocatechelins A and B, were isolated from a culture broth of Streptomyces sp. Their structures were determined by spectroscopic analysis and degradation study. They contain chloro-substituted catecholate that has not been reported in natural products, whereas this group was conjugated to guanidine to form acylguanidine in chlorocatechelin A. This acylguanidine decomposed in weakly acidic solutions to furnish a less potent siderophore chlorocatechelin B. Chemical and biological insights into acylguanidine are also discussed.

“The new tuberculosis (TB) lead ecumicin (1), a cyclic tridecapeptide, was isolated from Nonomuraea sp. MJM5123, following a high-throughput campaign for anti-TB activity. The large molecular weight of 1599 amu detected by LC-HR-MS precluded the initial inference of its molecular formula. The individual building blocks were identified by extensive NMR experiments. The resulting two possible planar structures were distinguished by LC-MS2. Determination of absolute configuration and unambiguous structural confirmation were carried out by X-ray crystallography and Marfey’s analysis.” Wei Gao, Jin-Yong Kim, Shao-Nong Chen, Sang-Hyun Cho, Jongkeun Choi, Birgit U.
