Arrive Safely: Head to Tirendo and Equip Yourself Properly for Your First Winter
The days are getting shorter, and the thermometer is dropping. Especially for new drivers looking forward to their first winter behind the wheel, the sudden onset of snowy and icy roads can be a real challenge. Even more important, therefore, to make sure that you have the appropriate tyres for wintry driving conditions. Tirendo shares some tips on what this involves.

In winter weather above all, the correct tread depth is crucial for safe driving. The legal minimum throughout Europe is 1.6 mm, however experts recommend at least 4 mm in snowy and icy conditions to ensure sufficient grip. To measure your tyre’s tread depth, simply take a two euro coin: the coin’s silver band is exactly 4 mm wide – if you can see sliver when you place the coin in the tread, then it’s time to change your tyres.
Tyre pressure also plays an important role. In winter, sudden temperature drops can often lead to a loss of tyre pressure. This affects tyre grip and driving stability, and increases fuel consumption. This is why we recommend increasing your tyre pressure by 0.2 bar – you can find the recommended values for your car in the instruction manual.
It can also depend on the tyres themselves. “Winter tyres aren’t all the same. The M+S designation (mud and snow) on the side of the tyre is generally a sign that it is suitable for snowy conditions. In addition, you should look out for the snowflake symbol. This shows that under standard test conditions, the tyre performed better than average on winter roads. That way, you’re on the safe side,” explains Thierry Delesalle from Tirendo. “Of course, it is also essential to adjust your driving style to the conditions, as in addition to ice and snow, wet autumn leaves on the road can also lead to involuntary skids. Sharp acceleration and sudden braking should be avoided, as should driving too fast or too close to the car in front.”
The right tyres for the winter season are a must-have, and not just for new drivers. If you’re looking to change your tyres in time for winter, at Tirendo it’s quick and easy to find replacements. The online shop offers a wide range of high-quality winter tyres from all major manufacturers. And to make changing your tyres even easier, you can also choose to have them delivered to one of our countless qualified fitting partners. This way your tyres are fitted professionally, and the workshop can carry out a comprehensive winter check at the same time.

Biosimilars could facilitate early access to life changing biological treatments for patients says Celltrion Healthcare21.5.2018 11:27 | Pressemelding
At the International Society for Pharmacoeconomics and Outcomes Research (ISPOR) 23rd Annual International Meeting in Baltimore, Celltrion Healthcare today advocated for healthcare systems to introduce biologics earlier in a patient’s treatment regimen in order to improve clinical outcomes. Several studies show that the early introduction of biologics can bring greater clinical benefit to patients.1,2,3,4,5,6 However, only a limited number of patients have access to biological treatment due to the high-cost of biologics and current reimbursement policies determined by pharmacoeconomic evaluations. Since the introduction of biosimilars, the overall cost of biological treatments has reduced in Europe, allowing an increased number of patients to access this important treatment option earlier in their course of treatment.7 Professor Jørgen Jahnsen said, “For the treatment of inflammatory bowel disease, biological treatments are proven to be the most efficacious medical therapy and their ea
