Apple Music

Apple Music is a music and video streaming service developed by Apple Inc. Users select music to stream to their device on-demand, or they can listen to existing, curated playlists; the service includes the Internet radio station Beats 1, which broadcasts live to over 100 countries 24 hours a day. The service was announced on June 8, 2015, launched on June 30, 2015 in over 100 countries worldwide. New subscribers get a three-month free trial period before the service requires a monthly subscription. A music service, Apple Music began expanding into video in 2016. Executive Jimmy Iovine has stated that the intention for the service is to become a "cultural platform", Apple wants the service to be a "one-stop shop for pop culture"; the company is investing in the production and purchasing of video content, both in terms of music videos and concert footage that support music releases, as well as web series and feature films. The original iOS version of Apple Music received mixed reviews, with criticism directed towards a user interface deemed "not intuitive".

However, it was praised for its playlist curation, vast library of songs to stream, its integration with other Apple devices and services. In iOS 10, the app received a significant redesign, which received positive reviews for an updated interface with less clutter, improved navigation, bigger emphasis on users' libraries. Apple Music gained popularity after its launch, passing the milestone of 10 million subscribers in only six months; the service has 60 million subscribers around the world as of June 2019. Apple Music allows users to stream over 60 million songs to their device on demand; the service offers curated playlists by music experts and recommendations tailored to a users music preference. Beats 1, the service's 24-hour radio station led by DJ Zane Lowe, broadcasts in over 100 countries; the Beats 1 service is free for all users without an Apple Music subscription. Apple Music subscribers can create a profile to share their music with friends and follow other users to view the music they're listening to on a regular basis.

Apple Music's use of iCloud, which matches a users' songs to those found on the service, allows users to combine their iTunes music library with their Apple Music library and listen to their music all in one place. Additionally, the service is integrated into Apple's own in-house services such as their personal voice assistant Siri as well as their audio and video streaming protocol AirPlay; as of late 2019, users have the ability to access the full version of Apple Music through an Apple-designed web player in beta. Apple Music's interface consists of five tabs: "Library", "For You", "Browse", "Radio", "Search"; the "Library" tab shows the user's music collection, with options to view songs by "Playlists", "Artists", "Albums", "Songs", or "Downloaded Music". Below these options, the tab shows music added to the user's library; the "For You" tab recommends music for the user based on their music tastes. Human expert selections supplement the algorithmic curation, while users are able to "Like" and "Dislike" songs to further improve music suggestions.

"Browse" shows new album releases from artists, playlists curated by the Apple Music team, upcoming album releases, as well as different categories including "Genres", "Moods", "Top Charts", "Music Videos". The "Radio" tab incorporates Beats 1 and other radio stations which play genre-specific or artist-related music, depending on the user's preference. Unlike traditional radio services, the radio feature in Apple Music allows users to skip songs, view played songs on the station, as well as view songs playing next; the "Search" tab features a search box where users can search for artists, Apple Music users, or songs by name or by lyrics. Below the search box, a list of recent user searches and overall trending searches on the service are shown; when a song is playing, a "Now Playing" bar appears above the bottom navigation bar. When viewed, the Now Playing section allows users to add a song to their library, download it to their device, like or dislike the song to improve suggestions on the "For You" tab.

Other functions of the "Now Playing" section include the ability to control what music plays next and put songs on shuffle or repeat. Additionally, users can view live lyrics of the song they are listening to through the now playing card, which displays the song's lyrics live in sync with the time while it plays to the user; each artist page includes a profile banner and a "Play" button which automatically creates a radio station based around the artist. Artist pages include sections for their featured releases, singles, top songs, background information. Apple Music users have the ability create their own profile on the service, thus allowing them to follow other users and see what music their followers are listening to. Users have the ability to view their most played songs and albums of the entire year through a feature called Apple Music Replay, accessible on the "For You" tab; the service is compatible with iOS devices running version 8.4 or iPadOS devices running version 13.0 or Music app on macOS Catalina or iTunes version 12.2 or for Windows PCs, as well as Apple Watch, Apple TV, Apple CarPlay, Apple HomePod.

It is available for Android devices running version 4.3 or Chrome OS devices, Amazon Echo devices, Sonos speakers. For devices without a native application, Apple Music is available on the web with a web player in beta. Before Apple Music, the company's iPod and iTunes were known for having "revolutionized digital music." Former Apple CEO Steve Jobs was known to be opposed to the idea of music subscription services.

Dalcetrapib

Dalcetrapib is a CETP inhibitor, being developed by Hoffmann–La Roche until May 2012. The drug was aimed at raising the blood levels of "good cholesterol". Prevailing observations indicate that high HDL levels correlate with better overall cardiovascular health, though it remains unclear whether raising HDL levels leads to an increase in cardiovascular health. A 24-week clinical trial showed that dalcetrapib did increase HDL-C levels, supporting the agent's desired effect. Further, the dal-PLAQUE phase IIb trial found evidence of plaque reduction. Plaque reduction is an anticipated observation following an increase in HDL; as of 2010 five phase II trials had started and there was no evidence of the raised blood pressure seen with torcetrapib.dal-VESSEL phase IIb trial found no evidence of flow-mediated dilatation improvement. A 17% increase of Lp-PLA2 mass level was noted. Lp-PLA2 is associated with coronary heart disease and stroke.dal-OUTCOMES phase III trial passed its first interim review in July, 2011, development was halted on May 7, 2012 “due to a lack of clinically meaningful efficacy.”.

The results of dal-OUTCOMES III were published in November, 2012. A pharmacogenomic genome-wide association study reported that patients from the dal-OUTCOMES study bearing a protective allele at SNP rs1967309 in the ADCY9 gene may have benefited from dalcetrapib therapy. Changes in inflammation and cholesterol efflux capacity may in part explain the benefits associated with the protective genotype; the Dal-GenE trial is validating these observations. This clinical trial is a randomized placebo-controlled study to evaluate the effects of dalcetrapib on cardiovascular risk in patients with recent acute coronary syndrome bearing the protective genotype.
