SAINT LOUIS, MISSOURI, USA, February 1, 2017 / — Two Dental Benefits providers, Companion Life and Kansas City Life, have both recently announced coverage for dental procedure code D5994 documenting a periodontal medicament carrier, a custom-fabricated tray used to deliver medication into periodontal pockets.

Initial reviews of insurance claim data for patients who have received Perio Trays® indicate that this benefit translates into better treatment outcomes for patients and a reduction in longer-term health costs. For companies that provide both dental and medical insurance, the savings in health care costs are expected to multiply given that treatment for periodontal disease has been shown to reduce overall healthcare costs for patients with diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, and pregnancy.

The most common periodontal medicament delivery device available to patients is the Perio Tray. Perio Trays have an internal peripheral seal and are proven to deliver medication deep into periodontal pockets to fight infections between office visits. Patients can only obtain a prescription Perio Tray through a licensed dentist who will develop and monitor a treatment plan for individual patients.

Perio Trays are used adjunctively to provide the best homecare. Toothbrush, rinse and floss can’t reach deep enough into periodontal pockets to help the 46% of Americans adults with chronic periodontitis. The Perio Tray has been shown to place medication into shallow and deep pockets to reduce inflammation and pocket depths when used in 15-minute daily applications.

“The key with prescription tray therapy” says Dr. Duane Keller, the inventor of the Perio Tray, “is to use a low concentration of peroxide to oxygenate the pockets, kill anaerobic bacteria, and change the microenvironment to create conditions for healthy bacterial regrowth. We used to provide antibiotics, but their benefits were largely temporary. Peroxide delivered deep with the tray overcomes these antibiotic limitations for long-term gingival health.”

Nutrition For Healing Launches Nationwide Sarcopenia Study

MEND Regenerate Medical Dietary Supplement For Sarcopenia

Study will measure the benefits of award winning MEND Regenerate on age-related muscle loss, frailty and improvement in strength and stability

With NSF Sport certification and the continuous research and studies we are running, our customers know they are getting the best products available in functional nutrition.”

— Sheraz Syed, P.T., CSCS, MDT

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, January 31, 2017 / — Nutrition For Healing® LLC announces that it will commence a double blind placebo study of award winning MEND Regenerate to validate efficacy in combating aging-related muscle loss, a condition called sarcopenia which affects 50% of the elderly.

“We’re an evidence based company that relies on strong science in developing our products” says healthy aging expert and science advisory board member Ken Roycroft, “Regenerate was developed after two years of testing in a busy orthopedic and sports medicine practice and we have continued to experience tremendous results with our patients. This study will further validate its efficacy.”

MEND™ Regenerate is focused on combating aging-related muscle loss, a significant health issue which negatively impacts strength, stamina, mobility, balance and overall vitality. Humans begin losing muscle mass as early as their 30s. Many of us find this defeating after spending our first three decades of life easily gaining muscle mass. Alarmingly, we can lose as much as 3 to 5 percent of muscle mass per decade. This can lead to an increased risk of bodily injury after 30 and a vicious cycle of decline. Some muscle mass loss is natural but accelerated muscle mass loss can and should be prevented.

There are a number of factors that contribute to aging-related muscle loss including lack of resistance exercise, reduction in hormones and poor nutrition. Because muscles begin synthesizing protein differently as we age, we need to take in not only more protein, but different protein, especially proteins that digest quickly. Proteins that reach the body sooner are able to heal muscles more quickly after exercise, reducing the risk of loss. MEND™ Regenerate has been formulated specifically to get healthy fast absorbing proteins and other vital nutrients into the body.

“With the combination of our certifications such as NSF Sport and the continuous research and studies we are running, our customers know they are getting the best products available in functional nutrition,” says physical therapist and strength and conditioning expert Sheraz Syed “we look forward to publishing results from this important study and continuing to build strong science around our products.”

Can multi-organ-on-a-chip technologies lead to a paradigm shift in drug development?

Drug Discovery 2017 | Register at

Drug Discovery 2017 | Register at

TissUse Head of BD to lead talk on the impact of Multi-organ-chip technologies on drug discovery.

LONDON, ENGLAND, UNITE, January 31, 2017 / — TissUse, leading pioneers of the Multi-Organ-Chip technology, will be joining the expert speaker lineup for SMi Group's exclusive conference on Drug Discovery. The event will be launched on the 27th and 28th of April 2017 in London.

TissUse’s proprietary multi-organ-chip technology platform closely emulates and simulates human biology to achieve uniquely lifelike environments. Connected organs and close physiological context allow remarkably close resemblance to in vivo conditions. This has benefited the drug development process, with current in vitro and animal modelling tests failing to emulate physiological organ complexity within the human body.

Head of Business Development, Reyk Horland, will be leading a spotlight session on multi-organ-chip technologies and its potential impact on drug discovery at the conference.

Reyk's presentation will showcase how "human-on-a-chip" technology is transforming drug development. He will demonstrate how this new approach allows us to closely study organoid interaction and allows more representative drug toxicity and efficacy screening. He will also highlight the importance of highly physiologically relevant cultures and microenvironments as scientists aim to close the gap between in vivo and in vitro.

Reyk will be speaking on Day 2 of the conference and joins lead decision-makers and industry innovators from Sanofi, Takeda, AstraZeneca, Merck Serono, AbbVie, GSK, Johnson & Johnson, UCB Pharma, Eli Lilly and more. A full list of speakers can be found on

SMi’s Drug Discovery conference aims to bridge the gaps in approval for drug discovery and development by discussing the latest scientific breakthroughs, exploring novel technologies and approaches that can be used to overcome drug development challenges.

The event will also feature two post-conference workshops on new approaches in lead generation and applications of physicochemical and biomimetic properties in early drug discovery.

Utah Mesothelioma Victims Center Now Urges a Diagnosed Oil Refinery Worker in Utah to Call for Instant Access to The Nation's Top Lawyers for A Free Compensation Evaluation

Before you hire a lawyer or a firm to assist with a mesothelioma claim for a diagnosed person anywhere in Utah please call us at 800-714-0303”

— Utah Mesothelioma Victims Center

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, USA, January 31, 2017 / — The Utah Mesothelioma Victims Center is now urging a current or former oil refinery worker in Utah who has recently been diagnosed with mesothelioma or their family members to call them anytime at 800-714-0303 for instant access to some of the nation's most skilled mesothelioma attorneys who actually have experience helping oil refinery workers with this rare cancer get properly compensated. http://Utah.MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com

The Utah Mesothelioma Victims Center says, "Next to US Navy Veterans or skilled trades workers-oil refinery workers exposed to asbestos at a refinery in Utah or another state are one of the top work groups for mesothelioma in Utah each year. Oil refinery workers typically should get the best possible financial compensation for this rare cancer caused by asbestos exposure but without the nation's most skilled and experienced mesothelioma attorneys-the best possible compensation probably will not happen as we would like to discuss anytime at 800-714-0303." http://Utah.MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com

Vital Mesothelioma Compensation Tip from the Utah Mesothelioma Victims Center: "If you wanted someone to run an oil refinery or to maintain it you would not hire someone with no experience in the operation of something as complex as a refinery. Why then hire a local car accident lawyer with little to no experience handling complex mesothelioma compensation claims involving oil refineries or power plants? Before you hire a lawyer or a firm to assist with a mesothelioma claim for a diagnosed person anywhere in Utah please call us at 800-714-0303." http://Utah.MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com

The Utah Mesothelioma Victims Center would like to emphasize theirs is a statewide initiative available to a diagnosed victim anywhere in Utah including communities such as Salt Lake City, Provo, West Jordan, Sandy Hills, Ogden, Saint George.

For the best possible mesothelioma treatment options in Utah the Utah Mesothelioma Victims Center strongly recommends the following heath care facility with the offer to help a diagnosed victim, or their family get to the right physicians at this hospital.

* The Huntsman Cancer Institute in Salt Lake City:

According to the CDC the states indicated with the highest incidence of mesothelioma include Maine, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Maryland, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Ohio, West Virginia, Virginia, Michigan, Illinois, Minnesota, Louisiana, Washington, and Oregon. However-mesothelioma does happen in Utah.

High risk work groups for exposure to asbestos in Utah include US Navy Veterans, power plant workers, plumbers, electricians, auto mechanics, machinists, or construction workers. In most instances a diagnosed person with mesothelioma was exposed to asbestos in the 1950’s, 1960’s, 1970’s, or 1980’s.

The Utah Mesothelioma Victims Center says, “When it comes to obtaining the best mesothelioma settlement, the quality of the attorney matters, as we would like to explain anytime at 800-714-0303.” http://Utah.MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com

Is Modular Laboratory Furniture Really More Expensive Than Fixed Casework?

Fixed Casework in U.S. Army Food DiagnosticLab

Modular Lab – Sample Processing

After reviewing many fixed casework & modular laboratory furniture projects; this article compared pros and cons under 4 main subjects. Review them now!

Point 3: Cost is an issue. As it turns out, modular designs are often cheaper than fixed casework installations.

— Formaspace

AUSTIN, TEXAS, UNITED STATES, July 25, 2016 / — In the laboratory field, there is a major trend underway toward modular lab furniture, yet many assume that modular designs are more expensive than traditional fixed casework. We investigate the facts about modular versus fixed casework.

In this brief buyer’s guide, we uncover the many reasons that modular laboratory furniture is becoming more popular — such as modular furniture’s lower installation costs — which generally make it less expensive than fixed casework projects.

But before we jump into the side-by-side comparison, we want to be clear: Formaspace sells BOTH modular lab furniture AND fixed casework. We’ve got you covered either way.

In fact, we recently completed construction of the largest food and diagnostics lab in the U.S. at Fort Sam Houston in San Antonio, Texas for the Department of Defense’s Food Analysis and Diagnostic Laboratory (FADL).

So if your preference is for fixed casework, there’s no doubt about it — we have the solution you need.

But modular furniture is coming up fast, so we’d like to share with you what we’ve learned from over 30 years of experience in working with laboratories, and why the market is making the move to modular furniture designs.

Our research and experience shows there are four key points to consider when deciding between fixed casework and modular furniture.

Point 1: The lab you build or renovate today will evolve considerably during its useful life.
Constant change is the watchword in today’s modern life science and research laboratories. In particular, lab designers should pay attention to these three:

– changes in technology
– the hunt for scarce talent
– major real estate trends

First, a word about technology. It’s getting more sophisticated and powerful, often smaller, sometimes cheaper (but not always). At the same time, the continuous roll out of new technologies is leading many to reconfigure their lab facilities far sooner than they anticipated in order to keep pace with the latest scientific advances.

The big advantage for modular lab furniture is that it simplifies re-configuring your lab. With modular furniture you can move cabinets around — even change your entire floorplan — to improve traffic flow, accessibility, etc. Modular furniture also allows you to easily increase your storage density by adding more shelves and cabinets to your existing installation.

On the other hand, fixed casework makes it much more difficult to change anything about your lab layout. Even small alterations can result in complicated, time-consuming, and disruptive construction projects.

As the healthcare, life sciences, and research industries continue to grow, recruiting top talent has become another concern that lab designers and space planners need to take into account. As in other tech industries, the best and brightest graduates have new ideas about how they want to collaborate in the workplace, as exemplified by emergence of non-traditional

Real estate trends are another important consideration. In the established life science research clusters like Boston, Raleigh-Durham, New York / New Jersey, the Bay Area, Los Angeles, and San Diego, occupancy rates are very high, which has driven up commercial rents for lab space to new highs. At the same time, mergers and acquisitions are on the increase.

The upshot is that if your lab has a favorable lease (or you own your real estate), you may be facing increasing pressure to accommodate more people and equipment in your existing location due to the high cost of relocation or expansion. In this case, modular furniture solutions make it far easier to increase the efficiency of your current setup. It’s very straightforward to add new workspaces and additional storage components, which is difficult to achieve with traditional fixed casework.

CONCLUSION 1: To keep up with technology, talent, and real estate space planning trends, modular lab furniture has the advantage in flexibility because re-configuring your facility is much easier compared with traditional fixed casework designs.

Advantage: Modular

Point 2: Chances are increasing that your entire lab operation will need to move to a new location one day.

A report on trends in the life sciences market by the real estate consultancy Jones Lang LaSalle (JLL) confirms that overall growth, along with industry consolidation and globalization, is resulting in shortages of available high-quality lab space in the key life science clusters around the nation.

In the Cambridge / Boston area, which has the highest concentration of laboratory research activity in the U.S., the real estate consultancy CRBE reports that lease rates are at a record high and there is little inventory for expansion.

This phenomenon is replicating itself across the nation. As a result, many laboratory research companies in major cluster centers like Cambridge / Boston, the Research Triangle in North Carolina, San Francisco, and Los Angeles are now actively looking at:

– renovating non-traditional buildings to build out new laboratories
– relocating to suburban locations where rents are cheaper and space is available
– moving away from expensive cluster cities to secondary markets, such as Philadelphia

Will Rep. Price support President Trump’s campaign pledge to enable personal importation of brand—name medicines?

Questions that should be asked of HHS Designee.

A medicine that is unaffordable is inherently unavailable, and a medicine that is unavailable and not able to be afforded is a medicine that is denied”

— Daniel Hines

ST. LOUIS, MISSOURI, USA, January 30, 2017 / — The Publisher of RxforAmericanHealth, AmericanRxBillofRights and TodaysSeniorsNetwork, has sent an open letter to President Donald Trump and Health and Human Services Secretary Rep. Tom Price of Georgia seeking clarification on whether the designee supports the President’s campaign pledge of a role for personal importation of brand-name prescription medicines from Tier One countries as a way to lower prescription drug costs.

Hines also sent the letter to the members of the U.S. Senate.(To read the letter, click here).

“We applaud President Trump’s continued expressions of support for personal importation as evidenced by his campaign pledge, and more recently, his sharp criticism of the predatory pricing practices of Pharma that deny access to literally millions of Americans to vital medicines because the high prices render the medicines unaffordable and unavailable,” says Publisher Daniel Hines.

But, Hines continues, during the Senate Judiciary Committee hearings for Rep. Price, he and Senator Bernie Sanders (D-VT) engaged in an exchange based upon Rep. Price’s continued references to his goal being ‘accessibility’ to health care for all Americans.

“Senator Sanders correctly pointed out that accessibility is not the same as the ability to purchase or afford adequate medical care,” Hines notes.

The problem, Hines explains, is that “a medicine that is unaffordable is inherently unavailable, and a medicine that is unavailable and not able to be afforded is a medicine that is denied.”

“However, a recent article from Roll Call offers Rep. Price an opportunity to shed light on his definition of accessibility to health care, “Hines says, noting that he sought an exemption from the Food and Drug Administration seizure of medicines of a constituent.

The exemption was sought because the constituent said the price of the medicine in the U.S. was unaffordable and he turned to Canada to personally import the medicine at a much lower cost.

Roll Call noted that “…In February 2006, Rep. Price’s office appealed to the FDA on behalf of a constituent in need of a medicine for a surgery. While both drugs were available for sale in the United States, the patient was trying to import them from Canada, where they were presumably cheaper. The drugs were being held in customs, and the FDA explained to Price that it wasn’t legal to import the drugs manufactured outside of the country, even though there are some exceptions to this policy…”

Ironically, one of the exceptions under which personal importation is allowable is if the medicine is unavailable, Hines explains.

“This directly addresses the question of whether or not a medicine is unavailable if it is unaffordable, or is it ‘accessible’ if available in the U.S., but the patient can’t afford it.”

Hines notes: “When Rep. Price wrote the letter, the FDA and U.S. Customs were engaged in collusion for such seizures which were accompanied by a letter threatening the patient who personally imported their medicines that by signing the letter they were admitting they were guilty of violating the law, that they were pledging that they would not attempt to import medicines in the future, and, if they did, their signature on the Customs letter would constitute an admission of guilt.”

“I and other advocates working on behalf of the rights of Americans to have true access to safe, affordable prescription medicines worked with contacts in the Senate to have the seizures halted, and to also specifically deny funding to Customs for such seizures,” Hines says.

That is why we are asking Rep. Price to now explain if his definition of ‘access ’includes support of the rights of Americans to engage in personal importation as he sought—and failed in– on behalf of his constituent.

Another question arises from a recent letter from many Democrat members of the U.S. House of Representative to President Barrack Obama, in which they sought to “… encourage your administration to explore implementing drug importation rules that are already part of U.S. law. Under authority from the Medicare Prescription Drug Improvement and Modernization Act of 2003, the Secretary of Health and Human Services can certify the importation of prescription drugs from other countries under specific qualifications. This regulatory action would pose no risk to public health and safety and could result in a significant reduction in the cost of prescription drugs to American families.”

This leads to specific questions that should be addressed by the President and Rep. Price:

1. Will Rep. Price, if confirmed as HHS Secretary, continue his previously stated support of personal importation as exampled by his letteron behalf of a constituent turning to personal importation;
2. Does Rep. Price believe that a prescription medicine is in and of itself unavailable because it is unaffordable, thereby meeting the FDA’s stated and printed decision that a medicine or device that is unavailable is thereby exempt from restrictions of personal importation?
3. Will Rep. Price, if confirmed, follow the directive and intent of Congress as stated in the Medicare Prescription Drug Improvement and Modernization Act of 2003?

“The designee’s response to these questions is of prime importance,” Hines concludes. “The fact is that personal importation of safe, affordable medicines from Tier One countries is the most immediate relief from the predatory drug pricing practices of Pharma.”
