4 Infant Mortality: Common Indicator of the Health of a Country

5 The Burden of Diabetes in the United States Approximately 21 million Americans have diabetes Diabetes is the sixth leading cause of death in the United States – approximately 225,000 deaths annually Diabetes accounts for 19% of health care expenditures in the US Direct and indirect cost associated with diabetes (2007) exceed $174 billion Source: American Diabetes Association

6 Age-adjusted Percentage of U.S. Adults Who Were Obese or Who Had Diagnosed Diabetes Centers for Disease Control and Prevention: National Diabetes Surveillance System

7 Prevalence of Diabetes Macrovascular and Microvascular Complications MacrovascularMicrovascular American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists. State of Diabetes Complications in America Report. Available at:

8 Community safety Education Family & social support Employment Built environment Environmental quality Income Unsafe sex Alcohol use Diet & exercise Tobacco use Access to care Quality of care Physical environment (10%) Social & economic factors (40%) Health behaviors (30%) Clinical care (20%) Health Factors Programs and Policies Health Outcomes Mortality (length of life) Morbidity (quality of life) Adapted from County Health Rankings model © 2010 UWPHI How Do We Build A Healthier America? Factors That Drive Health Outcomes

9 The Translation Gap for T1 Research More $ ≠ More Output

10 The Productivity Gap New Molecular Entities and Biologic License Applications Average R&D cost for each approved drug = $1.3 billion Nat Rev Drug Disc 2010;9:89-92

11 Clinical Research to Clinical Practice (T3/T4) -Lost in Translation. NEJM 349(9) 868-874 August 28 2003 …both health providers and members of the public, are not applying what we know. …we are not reaping the full public health benefits of our investment in research. …there is plenty of evidence that "old" research outcomes have been lost in translation as well.

12 Publication Bibliographic databases Submission Reviews, guidelines, textbook Negative results variable 0.3 year 6. 0 - 13.0 years 50% 46% 18% 35% 0.6 year 0.5 year 9.3 years Negative results Lack of numbers Inconsistent indexing Original research Acceptance Implementation E.A. Balas, 2000 It takes 17 years to turn 14 per cent of original research to the benefit of patient care

13 This is Not a New Problem: The Case of Scurvy 1593 - Sir Richard Hawkins recommended the following treatment for scurvy: "That which I have seen most fruitful for this sickness, is sour oranges and lemons." 1601- Lancaster shows that lemon juice supplement eliminates scurvy among sailors (non-randomized controlled trial) 1747- Lind shows that citrus juice supplement eliminates scurvy 1795- (194 years after Level 2 evidence) British Navy implements citrus juice supplement

14 The Translational Research Continuum at UF: An Expansion of T3 and T4 Research Basic Biomedical Discovery Clinical Efficacy Clinical Effectiveness Clinical Practice T1 What works under controlled conditions? (Translation to Humans) How can we change practice? (Translation to Practice) What is the effect on population health (Translation to Population Health) T2 T3 T4 “Bench” “Bedside” Community Practices Community Practices What works in real world settings (Translation to Patients) 2011 (n=912) 2008 (n= 862) CTSI Study Registry includes 9,401 human subject research protocols across four IRBs (medical and non-medical) 4,497 / 9,401 are considered medical and/or health related protocols 3,422 / 4,229 are categorized as translational research (T1 – T4)

15 UF VIVO Map of Science 13 Disciplines

16 National Institutes of Health Clinical and Translational Science Awards In 2006, NIH developed the Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA) as a program of the National Center for Research Resources The CTSA consortium works together as a national resource sharing a common vision to improve human health by helping scientists bridge laboratory discoveries to patient treatments National Strategic Goals: Improve the way biomedical research is conducted Reduce time it takes for discoveries to become treatments Engage communities in clinical research Train the next generation of clinical and translational researchers The 61 CTSA institutions are linked together to transform the local, regional, and national environment to increase the efficiency and speed of clinical and translational research

17 CTSA: The National Consortium
