Fewer than half of the physicians who received $1 million or more in consulting fees from orthopedic implant makers—including Warsaw’s Zimmer, Depuy Orthopaedics and Biomet—disclosed the financial ties in subsequent articles they wrote about the industry. That’s the finding of a study published this month in the Archives of Internal Medicine, according to a Bloomberg News report. The study authors focused on 40 orthopedic surgeon researchers who each received more than $1 million from a single orthopedic implant company in 2007. Those doctors published 95 articles related to the companies in 2008, the year following their payments, including studies, reviews and analyses designed to influence the future of patient care, according to the report. Just 44 of their articles disclosed the industry payments at all, and most of those that did merely stated that the author had receive more than $10,000 from the company. In all, five orthopedics companies made 985 payments to doctors for a total of $184 million in 2007 for consulting services, honoraria or assistance related to hip- and knee-replacement and reconstruction, with an average payment of $187,000.

Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology has received a three-year, $335,309 grant from the National Science Foundation to expand undergraduate research projects in orthopedics. The governmental agency hopes research by engineering students leads to improved, cost effective designs for knee and hip implants. The projects are being conducted through a partnership with Rose-Hulman’s department of applied biology and biomedical engineering and the Joint Replacement Surgeons of Indiana Research Foundation based at the Center for Hip & Knee Surgery in Mooresville.

Biosciences Vaccines Inc., a firm trying to improve vaccines against infectious diseases and cancers, has moved its offices from South Bend to the Purdue Research Park of West Lafayette. Biosciences Vaccines adds its extracellular matrix technology to vaccines to make them work more effectively and at a reduced cost. The technology was licensed from Cook Biotech Inc., which is also based in the Purdue Research Park. Biosciences Vaccines was launched last year and received a $400,000 investment from the Indiana Seed Fund, which is managed by Indianapolis-based BioCrossroads, a life sciences business-development group.

"Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition"

Indiana State Museum

Right up there with King Tut on the list of museum-exhibitions-that-attract-people-who-don’t-normally-go-to-museums is this tour of items from the famed sunken ocean liner. While I’m no fan of the James Cameron movie (it still bugs me that she throws away the necklace rather than, say, endow a hospital), I won’t deny the pull of these objects, each carrying the echo of lives—and an era—lost. Expect crowds (even at the $17 adult ticket price). Details here.

International Violin Competition of Indianapolis

September 22, 2010

Through Sept. 26
Various locations


One of the structural challenges of the finals of the International Violin Competition of Indianapolis is that you can’t hear all the contenders on one night. With six finalists needing enough time to play, they are broken into two groups of three. Each group of three performs twice. (Are you following this?) Since the finals started on Wednesday evening—and you are probably reading this on Thursday—you still have three choices of shows. Like Wednesday's offering, Thursday evening features three of the finalists and the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra at the Christel DeHaan Fine Arts Center. Friday and Saturday each feature three with the ISO at the Hilbert Circle Theatre. Details here.

Indianapolis-based VoCare Inc. has raised $2.2 million from angel investors to launch a mobile device that connects doctors with patients, and expects to reach $3.5 million in fundraising by the end of the year. The startup has developed a device that can combine a tablet computer with a cell phone and a pendant device that calls for help in case of a fall. The company intends to charge about $600 for the device, which could replace a traditional cell phone, plus $120 per month for communication services. VoCare, which has six employees, hired Indianapolis-based AGS Capital LLC to do the fundraising.

Eli Lilly and Co. plans to invest as much as $150 million in three venture-capital funds to aid development of medicines.

CMEA Capital, a San Francisco venture-capital firm, started raising money in August for one of the funds with Lilly. Lilly needs to find new medicines as drugs accounting for nearly half its 2009 sales are set to lose patent protection in the next three years, led by bestselling antipsychotic Zyprexa. The Indianapolis-based drugmaker spoke with more than 80 venture-capital and private-equity firms over a year before choosing partners, Bloomberg reported.
