KANNAPOLIS ó A nonprofit corporation that works to prevent, treat and cure respiratory diseases will locate a research center at the N.C. Research Campus.
Lovelace Respiratory Research Institute, a New Mexico-based company that specializes in studying allergies, asthma and other respiratory ailments, will move its Center for Pharmacoeconomics and Outcomes Research to Kannapolis, campus officials plan to announce Wednesday.
Pharmacoeconomics is a scientific discipline that compares the value of one drug to another. When conducting a pharmacoeconomic study, researchers consider not only the cost of a drug but also how much it improves the quality of life.
