A new survey by CVS Caremark of more than 2,400 of its retail pharmacists concludes that 62 percent of Americans believe the high cost of drugs is the biggest reason why as many as three out of four don’t take medications as prescribed. Non-adherence results in an estimated $300 billion a year in additional U.S. health care spending.

United Healthcare is supporting an innovative new Edible Landscape Garden in Green Bay, Wisconsin to provide healthy, affordable vegetables for the local community. Working through CBS EcoMedia’s WellnessAd program that connects advertisers with health and wellness projects in communities across the country, United Healthcare funding and volunteers have helped prepare the garden for planting next spring.

GlaxoSmithKline has announced that the Phase III study comparing the effectiveness and safety of its drug to treat renal cell carcinoma has resulted in a statistically significant outcome in its favor for 11 of the 14 domains from four Quality of Life categories. The drug, pazopanib, was first approved by the FDA in October 2009 and has received conditional marketing authorization in the E.U. in 2010.
