NHS drugs bill cut using magnets?26th August 2008
The cost of NHS medication for drugs to treat cancer and arthritis could be cut if magnets were used during the manufacturing process, according to new research.
Researchers at the University of Edinburgh have said that using magnets to draw out dead cells in the manufacture of protein-based medication would help to cut prices. Professor Chris Gregory, who worked on the study, said the magnets would make drugs "more efficient...[and]will also streamline research into new medicines which use cell culture."
