FROM THE DEAN Sorry State of Affairs: The Privatization of America’s Public Universities For those of you reading this who are not residing in Illinois, the University has made the front page of the Chicago Tribune again. This time it is because we are currently experiencing a serious cash flow problem due to the fact that the State of Illinois has not transferred promised funds to the University. As is the case for all public universities, the U of I receive a State appropriation. Private universities do not receive these State monies and, therefore, generally have higher tuition costs for students. Private universities are sometimes called “tuition-dependant” because, often, student tuition represents the major revenue source. If you have had a child accepted at both Northwestern University and the University of Illinois at Chicago, you know this full well upon examining the differences in costs. In essence, the State of Illinois subsidizes higher education for the citizens of the State in order to provide for (at least in theory) affordable college costs for its citizens. In other words, the general population places value on a college education - as it should - enough so that their tax dollars offset the cost of education. However, because of the extremely tenuous financial position of the State of Illinois, they have not transferred cash to the University, similar to delaying payments to pharmacies and hospitals around the State. Last time I checked, the total amount was $500 million, about one-half of our total appropriation. It doesn’t take a college education to realize that without cash, the University cannot pay its employees or its bills. Therefore, the University under a directive from the President called for a 6 percent cash rescission, a hiring freeze and a furlough program for faculty (read: pay cut of 4-10 percent). That’s what made the Trib. Let’s take a closer look at the contribution of public funds to the College of Pharmacy. The pie chart to the right shows the total revenue to the College by source for fiscal year 2009. The slices of the pie require some explanation: Self-supporting revenue, the largest slice, comes from the businesses of the College such as the seven ambulatory care pharmacies that we manage and our contracts to provide State Medicaid with formulary support and the Prior Authorization Program (there are smaller entrepreneurial revenue streams in the portion, too). These revenues, though not targeted directly for education, pay for crucial clinical faculty that work in these units. Research revenue in the form of grants (mainly from the National Institutes of Health) represents the second largest revenue stream and funds those support personnel and portions of some faculty engaged in the research mission of the College. Student tuition represents about 11 percent of our revenue and State funds from the General Revenue Fund or GRF (i.e., your tax dollars) is only 5.5 percent of our total revenue. Several points are clear from this analysis. First, one can see the importance of our research and clinical missions to the fiscal health of the College. Second, direct State funding from GRF is a relatively small portion of our overall revenue. But it is a crucial portion because the combined monies from the State and student tuition are almost entirely devoted to funding faculty lines. Third, the tuition from our students (and their parents) is becoming increasingly important and represents a larger revenue stream than direct State support. Stated another way, we are becoming more tuition dependant or more similar to a private university. We are becoming “tuition-driven.” We are not alone. This shift has been occurring throughout public higher education in America. State appropriations to public universities continue to decline. For instance, I believe when I was a student in the early- to mid-1970s, State funding represented nearly 50 percent of the College revenue. Further, State support of the College of Pharmacy has declined more than 33 percent just in the past decade. How do universities react to this decline? Just like us, they increase tuition to offset the loss. They move the responsibility away from the public at large directly to the families that have children going to college. In a way, then, this is a larger public policy issue that I’m not sure has been fully vetted by Americans, nor are they fully aware of this shift. They simply know that it’s becoming more and more expensive to send their kids to college – but this is the main reason why their pocketbooks are flea-ridden. Originally, Americans felt the societal need to invest their tax dollars in providing affordable access to higher education. In my (albeit biased) view, this investment was largely responsible for the economic and global success that this country has enjoyed during the past 100 years. It is time for us all to consider this larger question now: Is higher education so important to us that we are willing to invest in it to provide broad access to the general populace? Or will public education just be for those who have the means to pay?

Drug Combo Improves Lung Disease Survival by Sam Hostettler

Sufferers of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease have a greater chance of

Thitima Pengsuparp, PhD ’95, associate professor, and Rataya Luechapudiporn, PhD, assistant professor, both faculty of pharmaceutical sciences from Chulalongkorn University in Bangkok, visited the college on Aug. 13. Coordinated by Alan Lau, PharmD, professor, department of pharmacy practice and director of international clinical pharmacy education, Luechapudiporn and Pengsuparp met with many faculty members from throughout the college including the departments of pharmacy administration, pharmacy practice and biopharmaceutical sciences as well as the Office of Academic Affairs. Luechapudiporn and Pengsuparp were specifically interested in the college’s curriculum, pharmacotherapy and experiential education to gain insight to apply to Chulalongkorn University’s new pharmacy curriculum.

survival when treated with a combination of drugs that includes tiotropium, according to research at UIC. Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease makes breathing hard and worsens over time. COPD can cause coughing that produces large amounts of mucus, wheezing, shortness of breath, chest tightness and other symptoms. Smoking is the primary cause of the disease, according to the National Institutes of Health. More than 12 million people are currently diagnosed with COPD, and an additional 12 million likely have the disease and don’t know it, according to NIH. It is the fourthleading cause of death in the United States and a major cause of disability. There is no cure, but treatments and lifestyle changes can help COPD sufferers feel better, stay more active and slow the progress of the disease. Treatments include medicines, vaccines, pulmonary rehabilitation, oxygen therapy and surgery. In the new study, Todd Lee, PharmD, PhD, associate professor, department of pharmacy practice, and his research team compared more than 42,000 cases of COPD patients in the Veterans Health Administration 2-1/2 years prior to tiotropium’s 2004 entry into the marketplace and 2-1/2 years after. The study concluded that patients who were treated with tiotropium plus an inhaled corticosteroid and a long-acting beta-agonist lived longer and had fewer COPD-related hospital stays. Tiotropium is an inhaled powder that opens up the airways in the lungs. Inhaled corticosteroids reduce inflammation in the lungs, while beta-agonists cause the airways

to open more fully. Most studies on tiotropium have been clinical trials. Those studies showed that the drug improves lung function, symptoms and quality of life, Lee says. But while evidence on the efficacy of the drug accumulates through prospective trials, Lee says it is important to examine outcomes in look-back studies because the patient populations may be vastly different. Patients in Lee’s study were at least 45 years old and diagnosed with COPD over a 12-month period. They must have received COPD medications from the VA and switched to a regimen that included tiotropium or inhaled corticosteroids plus long-acting beta-agonists. Deaths were reduced by 40 percent in patients using the regimen of tiotropium plus inhaled corticosteroids plus long-acting beta-agonists compared to those treated with inhaled corticosteroids plus long-acting betaagonists without tiotropium, Lee says. The study is published in the August 2009 issue of Archives of Internal Medicine. It was funded by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Co-authors on the paper are Caitlyn Wilke, pharmacy practice fellow at UIC; Dr. Min Joo, clinical instructor of pulmonary, critical care and sleep medicine at UIC; Kevin Stroupe, research associate professor at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine; Dr. Jerry Krishnan, associate professor of medicine and health studies at the University of Chicago Medical Center; Glen Schumock, associate professor and director of the Center for Pharmacoeconomic Research at UIC; and Simon Pickard, associate professor of pharmacy practice at UIC.


Thousands of men and women who served in Iraq and Afghanistan sustained life-threatening injuries but were fortunate enough to return home alive.

In a cruel twist of fate, some may have suffered accidental harm or even death from incorrect use of potent prescription medications for their pain and injuries. A robotic device that dispenses the proper dose of oral prescription medications to soldiers suffering from traumatic brain injuries, post traumatic stress disorder and other conditions requiring risky medications is under study by researchers at UIC’s Center for Pharmacoeconomic Research and Milwaukee’s Columbia College of Nursing. “The military has an increasing number of patients with combat-related injuries that may not allow them to strictly adhere to their medication regimens,” says Daniel Touchette, assistant professor of pharmacy practice, who serves as coprincipal investigator on the project along with Jill Winters, professor and dean of Columbia College of Nursing. The study involves the use of an electronic medication management assistant, or EMMA delivery unit, designed to remotely deliver, manage and monitor a patient’s drug therapy and adherence in the outpatient setting under the guidance of a physician, nurse case manager and pharmacist. EMMA is trademarked and manufactured by INRange Systems, Inc. It is the only one of its kind cleared for remote medication management by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, Touchette says. The hope is that the system “will help ensure that these errors are minimized,” he says. More than 1.5 million preventable medication errors occur each year,

according to the 2006 Institute of Medicine report, “Preventing Medication Errors.” The study will be undertaken initially at the Camp Pendleton Naval Hospital in California and the James A. Haley Veterans Affairs Hospital and Polytrauma Facility in Tampa, Fla. The program may expand to include additional Department of Defense or VA sites. Dr. Mary Anne Papp of the Medical College of Wisconsin in Milwaukee directed the development of EMMA for INRange Systems. “For many patients in the military and veteran’s health care systems— particularly those who are in transitional care between the Department of the Defense, the Veterans Administration and home setting—taking medication properly, monitoring health care status and assessing health care providers becomes increasingly difficult,” she says. “We believe patients who use the EMMA units, along with its documented adherence and medication reconciliation abilities, will have fewer drug-related problems, fewer medication-related hospital admissions and emergency room visits, fewer duplicate narcotic prescriptions, and a decreased number of narcotic tablets/ equivalent doses, when compared to patients receiving medication reconciliation alone.” The $1.35 million study is a congressionally funded grant administered by the Telemedicine and Advanced Technology Research Center, part of the U.S. Army Medical Research & Material Command at Fort Detrick, Md. Other researchers include Vicki Groo, clinical assistant professor of pharmacy practice at UIC, and Young-Ku Choi, biostatistician in the UIC Institute for Health Research and Policy.

> Pact Assures WIU Students Placement In UIC College Of Pharmacy by Sam Hostettler

UIC and Western Illinois University have entered into an agreement guaranteeing admission of WIU students into the UIC College of Pharmacy, one of the top pharmacy programs in the United States. The agreement allows up to five WIU students each year to transfer to either the Chicago campus or the new Rockford Health Science campus to obtain a doctorate of pharmacy. “We are extremely pleased to partner with Western Illinois University with the purpose of training exceptional pharmacists for the state,” says Jerry Bauman, dean of the UIC College of Pharmacy. “It is a great example of how public universities can cooperate in educational programs, and I hope it may serve as a template for others.” UIC entered into a similar agreement with Northern Illinois University earlier this year. According to WIU Provost Jack Thomas, select students earning a bachelor’s degree from WIU within five years who have compiled a 3.5 or higher grade point average are eligible to transfer into UIC’s pharmacy curriculum. This is the first transfer agreement between the two schools, says Ron Williams, assistant vice president for academic affairs at WIU. “We are pleased to enter into this partnership with the UIC College of Pharmacy,” Williams says. “The new program gives students even more chances to succeed and provides even greater access to the premier academic programs offered by both institutions.”

Understanding M. Tuberculosis Qingbo Li, assistant professor, and Prahlad Rao, graduate student, both of the Center for Pharmaceutical Biotechnology, highlighted the need to understand the biology of Mycobacterium tuberculosis as one of the primary challenges of current tuberculosis research. In their study, published in the journal Molecules, the researchers note the difficulties in studying dormant M. tuberculosis by conventional proteomic techniques due to very few proteins being found to be differently expressed. The study highlights how the analysis of protein turnovers may help this dilemma due to its capability to detect more subtle changes in protein synthesis, degradation and secretion activities. The incorporation of turnover studies would provide a more in-depth view of the proteome and prove helpful in drug discovery as well as gaining a better understanding of the dynamic nature of the proteome of mycobacteria.

Measuring Cancer Patient Quality of Life A team of researchers led by A. Simon Pickard, assistant director, Center for Pharmacoeconomic Research, explored how to translate responses from the European Organization for the Research and Treatment of Cancer Quality of Life Questionnaire, a widely used quality of life measure in oncology, into utility scores to expand its use in medical decision-making. In the study, published in the September Value in Health journal, two approaches were used to analyze data from 1,432 cancer patients. The multi-attribute approach used psychometric analysis and expert input to select a subset of scale items for modeling. The second approach focused on global health and quality of life items based on a conceptional model. Researchers found that multi-attribute models produced a greater number of unique predicted values while globel models exhibited more desierable statistical properties and a wider range of values. The recommended models enable users to predict cancer patients’ utilities from existing and future Quality of Life Questionnaire data sets. 8 | UIC Pharmacist | Winter 2010 |

Bonanza! Go Flames!

> Blazing Tradition Sparky D. Dragon’s got nothing on Jerry Bauman. As the Flames prepared to tip off against the Illinois State Redbirds on the evening of Nov. 23, Dean Jerry Bauman, BS ’76, PharmD, showed the world—or at least the UIC Pavilion—that he can set fires just as well as any fire-breathing mascot. That night Dean Bauman became the 181st torchbearer recognized in the time-honored Lighting of the Flame ceremony hosted by the University of Illinois Alumni Association. The pomp and circumstance began behind the scenes with Dean Bauman penning his signature in the torchbearer tome, the bequeathment of the Lighting of the Flame certificate and official paperweight, and even a practice ignition. Out on the court, Dean Bauman completed the tradition by striding the red carpet to center and tipping a lit torch to the ceremonial cauldron. “After serving on the faculty at UIC for more than 30 years—and as an alum—I am really proud to receive this honor. Luckily, I lit the flame without some sort of pyrotechnic mishap,” said Dean Bauman. Established in 1999, the Lighting of the Flame commemorates the bond between alumni and alma mater and takes place immediately preceding Flames men’s basketball home games.

Dean Bauman shows off the occasion’s mementos.

LMWHs in Renal Impairment and Obesity A study led by Edith Nutescu, clinical professor, department of pharmacy practice, sought to develop practical recommendations for the use of low-molecular-weight heparins to prevent and treat venous thromboembolism and acute coronary syndromes in patients with impaired renal function or obesity. Previous studies were identified by a comprehensive list of search terms. Relevant studies were analyzed and found that there were differences in the degree of accumulation of various LMWHs in patients with moderate-to-severe renal impairment. The analysis also highlighted a need for laboratory monitoring of the anticoagulation effect of LMWHs in patients with morbid obesity. Nutescu’s team concluded in their findings, published in the June 2009 Annals of Pharmacotherapy, that additional data is needed for specific dosing guidance for obese and renally impaired patients due to the two populations often being excluded from larger clinical trials.

> Discoveries in Research

> UIC Developing New Way to Identify Contents of Botanicals UIC has received a two-year, $1.2 million federal grant to develop a new method to identify the contents of botanical dietary supplements and how they work. The research, under the leadership of Guido Pauli, associate professor of pharmacognosy, will use nuclear magnetic resonance and mass spectrometry to more quickly and accurately identify the correct plant materials used for production and provide more reliable assays to ensure botanical quality and safety. The new methodology will initially test 10 of the top 20 most widely used botanicals. Among them are soy, red clover, garlic, ginkgo, Echinacea, St. John’s Wort, ginseng, green tea and black cohosh. The approach, Pauli says, will be innovative to botanical reference standards and will transform the current system of identifying natural health products. “Our new approach to quality control will allow us to measure several parameters of herbal quality simultaneously,” Pauli says.

“This not only supports the more holistic approach of using botanical supplements, but can also become a protective measure for the consumer looking for products that are safe to use.”

By Sam Hostettler

Nearly one in 10 people use botanicals, and 40 percent of Americans -- and 12 percent of children under 18 -- use complementary and alternative medicine, according to the 2008 National Health Statistics Report. U.S. adults spent nearly $34 billion out of pocket on complementary and alternative medicine products, classes and materials, and on visits to complementary and alternative medicine practitioners in 2007, the report says. The grant is funded by the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine, one of the National Institutes of Health. Pauli’s co-workers at UIC include Shao-Nong Chen, Birgit Jaki and Marc Wang, research assistant professors; David Lankin, research associate professor; and Tanja Gödecke, post-doctoral fellow.

> UIC to Develop Antibiotics Against Potential Bioterrorism Agents Researchers at UIC have received a $4 million federal grant to develop new antibiotics to treat anthrax, tularemia and plague. Anthrax, tularemia and plague are caused by naturally occurring bacteria classified as “category-A” agents that could be used in bioterrorism and biowarfare. These microorganisms pose a risk to national security because they can be easily transmitted and disseminated, result in high mortality, have potential major public health impact and could cause panic, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. These infections can be treated with current antibiotics, but none is ideal, says Michael Johnson, professor and director of the UIC Center for Pharmaceutical Biotechnology and lead researcher on the two-year grant. Only one antibiotic, doxycycline, can be used to treat more than one of the three diseases, he says. Worse, it may be possible for terrorists to develop multi-drug resistant strains for all three diseases, Johnson says.

“Our goal is to develop an advanced series of broad-spectrum antibacterial ‘lead’ compounds that are safe, efficacious and that can be taken orally,” Johnson says. Anthrax infection can occur by absorption through the skin, by inhalation or through the gastrointestinal tract. If left untreated, the disease can be fatal. Tularemia, or rabbit fever, has a low fatality rate if treated, but can be incapacitating. It can be contracted through contact, inhalation, ingestion of contaminated water or by insect bites. Plague is caused by a bacterium found in rodents and their fleas in many areas of the world. The typical sign of the most common form of human plague is a swollen and tender lymph gland, accompanied by pain. About 14 percent of plague cases in the United States. are fatal, according to the CDC. Funding for the research is through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. It is the largest grant UIC has received through the Act and is funded by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases,

one of the National Institutes of Health. Johnson’s collaborators include Dr. James Cook, chief of infectious diseases in the UIC College of Medicine; Andrew Mesecar, professor in the UIC Center for Pharmaceutical Biotechnology; and David Case, professor of chemistry and chemical biology at Rutgers University.

A NIGHT TO REMEMBER By Erin Tolle Link Photography by Roberta Dupuis-Devlin and Al DiFranco

In September of 1859, a group of prominent Chicago druggists gathered with one common goal: To formalize the education and practice of their beloved trade. Those meetings bore the Chicago College of Pharmacy, or as we know it today, the University of Illinois at Chicago College of Pharmacy. Today it is one of the oldest pharmacy schools in the nation with a premier reputation for excellence in education and research. From its inception, the City of Chicago has had a close relationship with pharmacy. In the early days, Chicago was nothing more than camps scattered along the Chicago River and the banks of Lake Michigan. The meeting at which it was decided to incorporate those camps into a town called Chicago took place in a pharmacy. The early Chicago druggists acted as leaders in the new city and helped shape their beloved town into a bustling metropolis. UIC College of Pharmacy changed greatly over the years. In its first 20 years, the young college struggled to find its footing with the challenges of the Civil War followed closely by the Great Chicago Fire. The College graduated only two students in its first decade of existence. It has been housed at more than six locations within the city, finally finding a permanent home on the West Side of Chicago in the Illinois Medical District.Today, UIC College of Pharmacy graduates nearly 200 professional and graduate students who go on to be leaders in their chosen professions. Nearly every major pharmaceutical organization has been led by a UIC College of Pharmacy graduate. Faculty are world-renowned experts in all facets of the field as well as education. The college consistently places in the top five pharmacy schools for National Institutes of Health research funding. On Sept. 26, 2009, nearly 150 years to the day after the college was founded, more than 650 students, faculty, staff alumni and friends traveled from 24 states and two nations with one common goal—to celebrate the college’s legacy at the Timeless Gala. Some guests arrived by plane, others by train and even some by trolley to a destination as iconic as the city it resides in: Chicago’s Field Museum. Attendees mingled, dined and danced under the watchful eyes of Sue all the while enjoying music provided by The City Lights Orchestra. Chicago television and radio personality Bruce Wolf served as master of ceremony, alternating humor with wordss of praise for all who contributed to the college’s memorable 150 years.. As part of the formal program, Dean Jerry Bauman, BS ‘76, introduced a film commemorating the College, which was carefully produced by dedicated alumni volunteers. A copy of the film was included in a book that highlights the on of college’s timeless history given to all attendees. In recognition ean outstanding individuals throughout the college’s history, Dean e’s Bauman announced the inaugural recipients of the college’s 4).

Misuk Bae, Ph.D. student in biopharmaceutical sciences, is the recipient of a 2009 Chancellor’s Student Service and Leadership Award. This award honors students who have made an outstanding contribution to the University through campus and community service. Bae was recognized for establishing a Controlled Release Society-Illinois (CRS-IL) student chapter in 2007, of which she served as president from 2007-09 and as organizing committee chair for the group’s symposium “A Recent Advances in Parenteral Drug Delivery.”

Fourth-year professional students Tatyana Lawrecki and Jessica Jacobson were among the top ten finalists at the 2009 American Society of Health-System Pharmacists Clinical Skills Competition. During the contest, students demonstrate their skills by assessing patient information and current therapy, identifying and prioritizing drug therapy problems, identifying treatment goals and recommending a pharmacist’s care plan.

Third-year professional student and College of Pharmacy Student Council President Carolyn Sharpe placed in the top three of the patient counseling competition at the Illinois Pharmacists Association annual meeting.

Tanja Göedecke

UIC Herbal Drug Researcher Named U.S. Pharmacopeia Fellow by Sam Hostettler Tanja Göedecke, a postdoctoral research associate in medicinal chemistry and pharmacognosy, is one of six scientists in the country selected to receive a U.S. Pharmacopeia fellowship. Established in 1820, U.S. Pharmacopeia is an independent, not-for-profit organization composed of members representing academia, industry and government. It provides authoritative standards and information for medicines, food ingredients and dietary supplements. During her year-long fellowship— in which she will receive a $25,000 grant— Göedecke will work to develop a process using nuclear magnetic resonance to identify the plant Angelica sinensis and control the quality of preparations made from it in one step. Currently, several methods are used to identify the plant, but all require numerous stages, Göedecke says. There are more than 30 different species of Angelica, Göedecke says, and it is important to distinguish between them. “Each of the various species has different properties, and if not used properly, they can be detrimental to a person’s health.” Angelica sinensis, a dried root commonly referred to as dang gui, is widely used in Chinese traditional medicine to treat gynecological ailments, fatigue, mild anemia and high blood pressure. It is also used as an aphrodisiac. Angelica sinensis has analgesic, anti-inflammatory, antispasmodic and sedative effects. Herbal dietary supplements play an important role in the U.S. marketplace, and new technology for quality control becomes an important field of pharmaceutical research, says Guido Pauli, associate professor of pharmacognosy. Göedecke’s project is a “perfect fit with the goals and mission of the U.S. Pharmacopeia,” he says.

THE WHITE COATS ARE COMING! Photography by Barry Donald

On Aug. 26, UIC’s next class of future pharmacists and pharmaceutical industry researchers were welcomed to the profession at the College of Pharmacy White Coat ceremony before an audience of proud friends and family. The incoming students were selected from a pool of 1,362 applicants. This year’s 163-member P1 class is comprised of 106 women and 57 men, their ages raging from 20 to 44. Four come to UIC from out of state. This is the College’s 150th class since it opened its doors in 1859. Students recite the Pledge of Professionalism.

The Class of 2013 shows off their shiny new coats.
