GSK updates its sales rep incentives
GlaxoSmithKline has announced changes to its current sales representative incentives programme.The company stated that it will keep its existing pay structure, where 75% of a sales representative’s pay is fixed and 25% is variable, but sales reps involved in areas such as oncology and vaccines will be evaluated using individual sales targets. It will also increase the maximum variable pay for an individual sales person.In a statement, GSK revealed that the changes “reflect the growing shift in GSK’s portfolio to innovative Specialty Care products, including oncology” and “will allow the Company to attract and retain the best sales force talent, enhancing the quality of our dialogue with healthcare professionals (HCPs) and helping them better serve patients.”Changes will be made to the incentive programme for the company’s Pharmaceutical and Vaccines sales representatives to “better recognise and reward individual effort.”Specifically in Specialty Care, the capped variable pay element of a sales representative’s compensation will be evaluated on the basis of individual sales targets.All participants would be required to complete “new ethics and values-led behaviour training, with twice-yearly certification”, and the changes will be applied initially in the US, UK and Canada from July 2019 and a comprehensive training, control and monitoring framework will be put in place to ensure implementation of the new programme is fully aligned with GSK’s values-based approach to HCP engagement.

Biomind Labs Announces Design of a Pharmaceutical Form for Psychedelic Drug Delivery Using 3D Printing

Biomind Labs | November 25, 2021

Biomind Labs Inc. a leading biotech company in fast-acting psychedelics is pleased to announce the successful design of an oromucosal solid pharmaceutical form obtained by 3D printing using selective laser sintering. The form contains as its active ingredients certain psychedelic molecules that the Company has in its portfolio of psychedelic candidates. This pharmaceutical form is aimed at alleviating neurological and psychiatric disorders, and acting as an anti-inflammatory agent for various inflammatory disorders. “We believe we are the first company in the world to design a pharmaceutical form for psychedelic drug delivery using 3D printing. This paramount step in our rapid evolution towards becoming a pharmaceutical company, was achieved by our team of scientists who have designed a novel pharmaceutical form to be used with our psychedelic candidates. We are very proud of how our research and development division advances in the development of complex products, on-demand products, and customized products, aimed to address a wide range of needs from patients with different mental health conditions. 3D printing allows creating three-dimensional objects layer by layer, thereby achieving products with variable geometries. Inside the universe of pharmaceutical technology, 3D printing allows combining of shapes and stratification of materials; thus, possibly controlling the time and place of drug release. One of the most interesting and potentially exciting results is that doses can be adjusted in real time for the specific needs of each patient. 3D printing of psychedelics could be key to the future of the industry, not just because it allows us to personalize medicine but also for creating sustainable production, while reducing the environmental burden”, commented Alejandro Antalich, CEO of Biomind Labs.
