star this property answer text <p>Many countries invest public funds in research and development (R&amp;D), often at an early stage. Some of this will contribute to basic science that will provide the fundamental knowledge and tools from which many different applications, including new medicines, may ultimately be developed. Some will be applied research related to a specific clinical application. Private companies also invest in R&amp;D, which may build on the results of both basic and applied research supported through public or private funding. Many potential medicines are taken part way through development but are not ultimately found to be suitable for clinical use, but this process provides an important part of the knowledge base that will go on to support future medicines development. Given all of these different factors that contribute to medicine development, it is not possible to assess the contribution made by public investment or private investment in bringing products to market.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The United Kingdom National Screening Committee (UK NSC) offers screening to an asymptomatic population for conditions which have been evaluated against their robust and extensive criteria. The UK NSC last reviewed the evidence to screen for ovarian cancer in 2016 and recommended that population screening should not be offered. Research has shown that screening women under the age of 50 is less effective especially when they have not entered into the menopause phase.</p><p> </p><p>There are currently no plans to offer screening to women over the age of 30 for either ovarian or breast cancer.</p><p> </p><p>A proposal to change an existing programme, such as age to the breast screening programme would follow the UK NSC’s evidence review process.

star this property answer text <p>The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence guidance Chronic kidney disease in adults: assessment and management, updated in July 2014, sets out best practice for clinicians in the diagnosis and management of chronic kidney disease (CKD). The guidance covers identification and monitoring of patients at risk; pharmacological management and referral where appropriate, and aims to ensure patients remain healthy and avoid kidney failure, if possible. The guidance can be found at the following link:</p><p> </p><p><a href="http://www.nice.org.uk/guidance/cg182" target="_blank">www.nice.org.uk/guidance/cg182</a></p><p> </p><p>The NHS Health Check is a national programme (launched in 2009) for everyone between the ages of 40-74 years (not already on a chronic disease register) that assesses people’s health and risk of developing certain health problems. At launch it was estimated that the programme could detect each year at least 20,000 cases of diabetes or kidney disease earlier, allowing individuals to be better managed and to improve their quality of life. The first major evaluation of the NHS Health Check, published in 2016 and covering 665 general practitioner practices, demonstrated positive results, estimating that over the first five years it has identified a new case of chronic kidney disease in every 265 appointments.
