Sharjah Air Wing Finds Two Emiratis Whose Car had Broken Down in Desert

Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates – Tuesday, September 2nd 2014 [ME NewsWire]

A search and rescue helicopter at Sharjah Air Wing Section, an affiliate of the Ministry of Interior, found two young Emiratis who had gone missing after their vehicle had broken down in the desert sands of the Central Region of Sharjah.

The Sharjah Air Wing Section was tipped off by the Sharjah Police Operations Room about a four-wheel drive vehicle that had become stuck in the desert of the Al Faya area in Sharjah.

Colonel Pilot Khalifa Abdullah Al Khatri, Acting Chief of Sharjah Air Wing Section, explained that the search and rescue helicopter took off immediately after receiving the report. Air emergency staff from the Sharjah Air Wing Section accompanied the helicopter to the location and found the vehicle and the two young men. The emergency team diagnosed the situation of both Emiratis and discovered that they were in a state of severe fatigue and extreme thirst. They were then moved to the helicopter, where they received first aid onsite.

Both Emiratis expressed their gratitude to the Sharjah Air Wing Section for their quick response and assistance.

Colonel Pilot Khalifa Abdullah Al Khatri urged the public to use the navigational devices that are available in local markets if they plan to take trips into the wilderness with their vehicles.

If an accident or malfunction should occur, these devices will facilitate the search and rescue helicopter in locating those that need help.

ESC Congress 2014 Hot Line Session: Favourable effect of Pradaxa® on kidney function over time compared to warfarin

INGELHEIM, Germany – Tuesday, September 2nd 2014 [ME NewsWire]

RE-LY® sub-analysis shows that Pradaxa® treatment favourably affects kidney function1 deterioration over time compared to warfarin
Data provide additional support for long-term use of Pradaxa® in stroke prevention in non-valvular atrial fibrillation (NVAF)1

(BUSINESS WIRE)– Non-US/Non-UK/Non-Canadian Media

New data presented today indicate that kidney function decline is less pronounced in patients with an irregular heartbeat (non-valvular atrial fibrillation, NVAF) who are treated with Pradaxa®(dabigatran etexilate) compared to warfarin.1 A natural decline in kidney function is expected as part of the ageing process or as a result of other underlying diseases.2 New data support that long-term Pradaxa® treatment compares favourably to warfarin in terms of kidney function decline over time.1 The new RE-LY® study sub-analysis findings were presented today at a Clinical Trial Update Hot Line session during the ESC Congress 2014 organised by the European Society of Cardiology in Barcelona.1

“These data support dabigatran as a good long-term treatment option for non-valvular atrial fibrillation patients,” said Professor Michael Böhm, Director of the Department of Internal Medicine and Cardiology at the University Hospital of Saarland, Homburg/Saar, Germany. “These RE-LY® study findings may have particular relevance for NVAF patients who have co-existing medical conditions which negatively impact their kidney function, such as diabetes, and for patients with poorly controlled vitamin K antagonist therapy. Dabigatran may provide additional benefit to these patients in the long term.”

The data included in the ESC Congress 2014 Hot Line session were derived from a post hoc exploratory analysis of the RE-LY® study that included over 18,000 patients and compared kidney function change in patients treated with either warfarin or Pradaxa® (110mg or 150mg twice daily).1

Results indicate that kidney function deteriorated more in patients on warfarin compared to those on either dose of Pradaxa®.1 Results were significantly different to warfarin for both doses of Pradaxa®at 30 months, with similar patterns seen in different Pradaxa® subgroups.1 Patients who were poorly controlled on warfarin and spent more time above the recommended International Normalized Ratio target range (INR 2-3) experienced a markedly sharper decline in kidney function compared to patients taking Pradaxa®.1 Patients with diabetes, who are at generally higher risk of kidney problems were particularly susceptible to the effects of warfarin, and experienced higher rates of kidney decline than non-diabetic NVAF patients.1 The same was true for patients previously treated with warfarin.1 Also in these patients, Pradaxa® treatment compared favourably to warfarin.1

While the exact mechanism behind this difference has yet to be identified, there is a well-defined pathophysiological background. Vitamin K is known to protect against the build-up of calcium deposits in blood vessels, known as vascular calcification.3 Oral anticoagulation with vitamin K-antagonists such as warfarin, which block vitamin K in the body, have been associated with an increased rate of vascular calcification and vascular damage.3 Pradaxa® is an oral direct thrombin inhibitor which does not interfere with vitamin K, but works in a different way to reduce blood clotting in order to protect patients with non-valvular atrial fibrillation against stroke.4,5,6
