...diet," said lead study author Lawrence Berk, MD, chief of radiation oncology, Morsani School of Medicine at the University of South Florida, Tampa. "A larger trial was just completed in Canada for a similar problem - mouth and throat pain during head and neck RT - and that trial also found no benefit with the honey. Both the Canadian study and our trial used Manuka honey, whereas previous trials all used a local honey. This is often a problem in using natural products-each batch or type of product may be different, so it is hard to reproduce the effects seen by others. Currently, honey cannot be recommended for every patient to use for esophagitis pain relief. However, it is safe and inexpensive, so if patients want to try it, there is probably little harm. Patients with diabetes should be cautious with honey because it does have a high sugar load."
"I think that in the wake of our findings, the way our practice in Kaiser Permanente, in terms of how we treat intracerebral hemorrhage, is going to certainly be to not stop someone taking statins acutely in hospital."
...Dalia Megiddo, Chief Executive Officer of Bio Blast Pharma. "Initiation of the Canadian center of the HOPEMD study is an important milestone in our clinical development program for OPMD. The Montreal Neurological institute, as well as our Canadian collaborators, Professor Guy Rouleau, Director of the Montreal Neurological Institute, Professor Bernard Brais, co-director of the neuromuscular group of the Montreal Neurological Institute, and Professor Emeritus Jean Pierre Bouchard from Université Laval, Quebec, have been at the forefront of OPMD research for many years. We are thrilled and appreciative of their active interest and participation in our program."
...Series flexible laryngoscope expands the range of our innovative ENT portfolio," stated Howard Zauberman, President and Chief Executive Officer. "By offering physicians exceptional image quality and diagnostic capabilities in the smallest available size, we believe we allow them the opportunity to treat a more complete range of patients."
