Nucleus Medical Media Supports Cervical Health Awareness Month with Complimentary 3D Animations

Nucleus Medical Media Supports Cervical Health Awareness Month with Complimentary 3D Animations














Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) January 07, 2014

As medical organizations recognize January as Cervical Health Awareness Month, Nucleus Medical Media offers informational medical animations at no charge through social media channels to explain and promote health literacy.

According to the most recent data from the CDC, almost 12,000 women in the United States were diagnosed with cervical cancer in 2010. Though the number of deaths from cervical cancer has decreased drastically since the increased use of the Pap test beginning in the 1950s, other measures can help prevent the disease before a cancer diagnosis.

Lynn B. Barclay, the President and CEO of the National Cervical Cancer Coalition, says, “Cervical cancer is preventable through vaccines and screening tests. Making sure these tools reach the most vulnerable women is critical, of course, but so are efforts to educate women about the disease. Accurate, culturally-sensitive information and access to care are an unbeatable combination.”

With a mission to support and enhance health literacy, Nucleus offers free, informational videos about cervical health on the Nucleus Medical Media YouTube channel including the following:


    HPV: Preventing Cervical Cancer—explains how to avoid HPV and how the vaccine can prevent cervical cancer
    Cervical Cancer Symptoms—outlines the symptoms that could mean cervical cancer
    Cervical Cancer Staging—demonstrates what various stages of cervical center look like from inside the body
    Treatments for Cervical Cancer—explains options for treatment such as surgery, radiation therapy, and chemotherapy

Ron Collins, CEO and Co-founder of Nucleus Medical Media believes that the web is ideally suited to help spread health literacy information like cervical cancer prevention: “Health literacy is the first step in preventing diseases and conditions,” he says. “We ask all of our viewers on YouTube and Facebook to watch and share these animations to raise awareness of Cervical Health Awareness Month and how to prevent cervical cancer.”

If you are a nonprofit organization interested in using medical animations for community-based or faith-based health presentations on cervical health and cancer, email Nucleus at info(at)nucleusinc(dot)com with “Cervical Health Information” in the subject heading.

For further comment, contact Ronald Collins, CEO and Cofounder of Nucleus Medical Media, at rcollins(at)nucleusinc(dot)com or (770) 805-0460.

Alzheimer’s disease drug market is on the curvature stage. Since 2003, there is not any single “magic bullet” launched in the market to prevent or cure it. However, all current marketed products are going to be generic in the next 3-4 years. There are high unmet medical needs. The current unmet needs represent a huge opportunity for pharmaceutical companies which are developing targeted novel therapies. If successful, they will be in a position to command premium prices and tap the existing opportunity. Lot of drugs has failed in Phase III stage thus putting a greater impact on Alzheimer’s disease drug market.

From the year 2009 Alzheimer’s disease drug market is declining and it is expected to fall till 2016. But with the expected launch of some Alzheimer’s drugs from the year 2017 onwards, Alzheimer’s disease drug market is expected to revive in the coming years. However due to absence of exact potential drugs there will always remain a huge Unmet Alzheimer’s Drug Market. For the year 2018 Alzheimer’s Disease Drug Market will be just 10% of Unmet Alzheimer’s Disease Drug Market.

Zithromax Arrhythmia Allegations Lawyer: Resource4thePeople Announces No-Cost Consultations Will be Available over the Holidays

Zithromax Arrhythmia Allegations Lawyer: Resource4thePeople Announces No-Cost Consultations Will be Available over the Holidays










San Diego, CA (PRWEB) December 24, 2013

http://www.resource4thepeople.com/defectivedrugs/Zithromax-lawsuits.html

Resource4thePeople announced today that its national network of attorneys will be available over the upcoming holiday season to consumers inquiring about legal options in connection with allegations involving life-threatening side effects from Zithromax and other azithromycin-based antibiotics.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration identified these dangerous side effects, including arrhythmia and sudden death in a March 3, 2013 Health Warning* issued to health care professionals and consumers.

“We are proud to announce that our policy of providing complimentary consultations to consumers inquiring about these allegations and their legal options to seek compensation will not be interrupted by the holiday season,” said Resource4thePeople.

“In response to numerous inquiries from consumers who have asked about whether our attorneys will be available over the holidays we are announcing that our 24-hour hotline will be staffed for those who may be seeking legal options about their eligibility to seek compensation over these allegations.”

Resource4thePeople said that the health warning issued by the FDA has been generating increasing numbers of inquiries from consumers who may have been affected by these allegations and are requesting information about how to seek compensation for medical and other expenses.

The FDA describes Zithromax as a macrolide antibiotic used in the treatment of bacterial infections in many parts of the body and expresssed these concerns in the March 3, 2013 Health Warning* issued by the FDA addressed similar concerns:

“The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is warning the public that azithromycin (Zithromax or Zmax) can cause abnormal changes in the electrical activity of the heart that may lead to a potentially fatal irregular heart rhythm. Patients at particular risk for developing this condition include those with known risk factors such as existing QT interval prolongation, low blood levels of potassium or magnesium, a slower than normal heart rate, or use of certain drugs used to treat abnormal heart rhythms, or arrhythmias. This communication is a result of our review of a study by medical researchers as well as another study by a manufacturer of the drug that assessed the potential for azithromycin to cause abnormal changes in the electrical activity of the heart.”

To aid consumers, Resource4thePeople’s national network of attorneys are reviewing claims that involve possible symptoms of arrhythmia, sudden death and other serious health allegations involving popular antibiotics such as Zithromax.

The medications involved are known generically as azithromycin, and are sold under names such as Zithromax, Zithromax Z-Pak, Zithromax Tri-Pak and Zmax.

The following are among health symptoms being reviewed by Resource4thePeople’s national network of attorneys:

    fast, pounding, or irregular heart beat

    dizziness

    fainting

    rash

    hives

    itching

    wheezing or difficulty breathing or swallowing

    swelling of the face, throat, tongue, lips, eyes, hands, feet, ankles, or lower legs

    hoarseness

    mouth sores

    severe diarrhea (watery or bloody stools) that may occur with or without fever and stomach cramps (may occur up to 2 months or more after your treatment)

    yellowing of the skin or eyes

    extreme tiredness

    unusual bleeding or bruising

    lack of energy

    loss of appetite

    pain in the upper right part of the stomach

    flu-like symptoms

    dark-colored urine

    blisters or peeling of the skin

    unusual muscle weakness or difficulty with muscle control

The Canadian equivalent of the FDA, Health Canada, also issued a warning about Zithromax that was posted May 16, 2013.** It warned that “Prolonged cardiac repolarization and QT interval have been seen in treatment with macrolides including azithromycin. Health care practitioners should consider the risk of fatal cardiac arrhythmias with azithromycin when prescribing antibacterial treatment for patients who are already at risk for cardiovascular events.”

The FDA also sent a strongly worded warning letter*** on June 19, 2012 to the medications’ manufacturer, Pfizer Inc., over language federal officials described as “false” and “misleading” in a marketing brochure.

In its letter the FDA criticized a brochure issued by Pfizer for the medications and made the following finding:

“The brochure is false or misleading because it omits and minimizes important risk information, makes unsubstantiated superiority claims, omits material facts, broadens the indication for the drug product, makes misleading efficacy claims, and makes unsubstantiated claims for Zmax.”

FDA regulators also found that the brochure omitted important information that should have warned consumers about the risk of serious heart problems:

“Specifically, the brochure omits the important risk of QT prolongation associated with Zmax use. The WARNINGS AND PRECAUTIONS section of the PI states, “[p]rolonged cardiac repolarization and QT interval, imparting a risk of developing cardiac arrhythmia and torsades de pointes, have been seen in treatment with other macrolides. A similar effect with azithromycin cannot be completely ruled out in patients at increased risk for prolonged cardiac repolarization” (emphasis in original). By omitting this serious risk associated with Zmax, the brochure misleadingly suggests that the drug is safer than has been demonstrated.”

Looking for Late Christmas Presents? Sublime Beauty

Looking for Late Christmas Presents? Sublime Beauty® Offers Festive Boxes with Anti-Aging Serum On Sale and Ready to Give














St. Petersburg, FL (PRWEB) December 24, 2013

Better late than never. Sublime Beauty® offers great gift choices for that late gift, in a festive Christmas box with bow, ready to give. And they are on sale, too.

“Anyone who is interested in looking better, or quality skincare, will appreciate this gift,” says Kathy Heshelow, founder of Sublime Beauty®. “We include Collagen and Hyaluronic serums in a box, or add Retinol in a box of three serums- ready to give!”

The Sublime Beauty® Collagen serum is very popular, with the active ingredient Matrixyl®. Matrixyl boosts collagen production, an important element for youthful skin. We lose collagen each year, and this contributes to wrinkles, sagging and thinning of skin.

Studies published in Molecular Pharmaceutics magazine by Ian Hamsley this year showed that Matrixyl can double collagen production.

Hyaluronic serum works to plump and cushion skin, while Retinol is considered the workhorse of skincare routines. Retinol can reduce age spots, wrinkles, pores and hyperpigmentation; it helps to improve skin quality and also helps to promote collagen synthesis.

All Sublime Beauty® products are available through Amazon, with fast shipping and secure checkout. All late Christmas gifts can be seen on the Sublime Beauty® website gift page.

Chaffin Luhana Honors the Spirit of Giving with New Foundation Website

Chaffin Luhana Honors the Spirit of Giving with New Foundation Website










New York, New York (PRWEB) December 25, 2013

The founding partners of Chaffin Luhana LLP, a national plaintiffs-only law firm, is pleased to announce the launch of a new website, ChaffinLuhanaFoundation.org. The foundation reflects the efforts that Eric Chaffin, Roopal Luhana and the entire Chaffin Luhana LLP team make every year to support and uplift those who are facing difficult challenges in life.

“Our motto is Doing Good by Doing Right,” said partner Eric Chaffin, “and we take that very seriously. The new website outlines the activities, grants, and outreach projects we’re working on to give back to our communities and support those who really need it. Our efforts through the Foundation are some of our most rewarding, and we want to spread the word to both increase awareness about needy organizations and individuals, and to celebrate those who are overcoming hurdles and serving as great examples for the rest of us.”

A not-for-profit organization, the Chaffin Luhana Foundation encourages the development of human potential and supports community empowerment through the endowment of funds to deserving recipients, the creation of community-based enrichment projects, and the support of important scientific research that meaningfully impacts the underprivileged and sick in society.

Some highlights of the Foundation’s work so far include, among others:


University of Michigan Zinc Research: The Foundation made a substantial grant to the University of Michigan to assist in the research of how zinc reacts within the body. It is hoped that this research will result in better care and treatment for zinc-induced copper deficiency myeloneuropathy, a disorder that causes pain, weakness, and loss of body control, and which can occur as a result of long-term use of denture cream with high zinc content. This project grew out of the firm’s work on behalf of hundreds of unfortunate consumers who were permanently disabled from the zinc in denture adhesive.
Sarah Jane Brain Foundation: Founded by the father of a child who was shaken as an infant, this organization works to create a model system of care for children and young adults suffering from pediatric acquired brain injuries. The Chaffin Luhana Foundation made a sizable donation to the organization, which celebrated the life of Cheryl DelRossi, a former Chaffin Luhana client.
St. Joseph’s Soup Kitchen in New York City: The Foundation recently made a sizable donation to this organization over the Thanksgiving holiday, which feeds meals every Saturday to the homeless and the working poor. The Foundation donation provided meals to 650 needy New Yorkers.
NY Cares Annual Coat Drive: Chaffin Luhana staff and their families donated coats, and the Foundation purchased coats for the drive, which is facing a large shortage of donations this year. The coat drive raised 135 coats to help keep New York’s underprivileged warm during the winter months.
Habitat for Humanity: The Foundation made a significant donation, and staff members volunteered to help with the building of a home in the Westchester, New York area. The firm donated the staff time to the work day.
Newtown Kindness: The firm recently made a seed donation to Newtown Kindness on the eve of the one year anniversary of the Connecticut school shootings. This organization teaches school children and others to think kindly and act boldly. The mission of Newtown Kindness is aligned with the Chaffin Luhana firm, which has a motto of “Doing Good by Doing Right.”

The Foundation’s spokesperson is Para-Olympic medalist Stephani Victor, who suffered a traumatic car accident when she was only 26 years old that robbed her of both legs. She went on to become a Para-Olympic downhill skier, winning five medals in the last three Paralympic Winter Games, including a gold medal and two silver medals in 2010 in Vancouver. Though injuries kept her out of racing for nearly two seasons, she is staging a comeback for the Sochi 2014 Paralympic Winter Games.

Stephani is a former client of Eric and Roopal’s, and has been close friends with them for years. She shares their vision for encouraging accomplishment through the Chaffin Luhana Foundation, and will be involved in the Stephani Victor Legacy Award, which the Foundation plans to give to one deserving individual each year.

“I witnessed from a very early age what it takes to work hard and sustain yourself,” she says, “and I share the values that Roopal and Eric have—that when you come from a humble beginning, you never lose your connection to that. There’s a lot of good to be done, and I’m excited to be working with the Chaffin Luhana Foundation to make it happen.”

Chaffin Luhana LLP has a long and successful history of protecting the rights of those affected by adversity including those who have suffered from serious side effects caused by medical devices and pharmaceutical drugs. Partners Eric Chaffin and Roopal Luhana represent high-profile cases in federal and state courts across the country, and provide new online resource centers for clients and the public. To date, Mr. Chaffin and Ms. Luhana along with co-counsel have been involved in recovering over $ 1 billion for injured consumers. Both have been named to the prestigious New York Metro Super Lawyers list numerous times, and though unable to guarantee results, the firm has a distinguished track record of success and is highly committed to each case.

New Pradaxa Lawsuit Alleges Gastrointestinal Bleeding: Now, AttorneyOne Can Provide Advice

New Pradaxa Lawsuit Alleges Gastrointestinal Bleeding: Now, AttorneyOne Can Provide Advice











Pradaxa: serious adverse events


San Diego, CA (PRWEB) December 24, 2013

AttorneyOne.com, a recognized authority on law, updated the website recently and they are now actively providing expert opinion in view of the recent news on Pradaxa Lawsuits.

On November 20, a new lawsuit was filed by a man in Missouri Eastern District Court (case no. 4:2013cv02335) alleging that he suffered gastrointestinal bleeding from Pradaxa. Pradaxa (dabigatran etexilate), manufactured by Boehringer Ingelheim Pharmaceuticals, is a new oral anticoagulant mainly used as a blood thinner for patients who are at risk for stroke or atrial fibrillation. In the lawsuit, the plaintiff claims that he was prescribed Pradaxa for long-term maintenance and in 2011, he suffered lower gastrointestinal bleeding.

As Bloomberg published on December 10, a US District Judge ordered Boehringer to pay $ 931,000 as a fine for withholding documents related to the Pradaxa Multidistrict Litigation (MDL No. 2385, U.S. District Court, Southern District of Illinois).

Taking into consideration the latest developments, AttorneyOne.com updated the website and, now, can actively provide an expert opinion including how to get in contact with legal counsel easily and inexpensively in cases of severe complications, allegedly from Pradaxa.

Yaz, Yasmin Blood-Clotting Allegation Lawyers: Resource4thePeople Announces No-Cost Consultations Will Be Available over the Holidays

Yaz, Yasmin Blood-Clotting Allegation Lawyers: Resource4thePeople Announces No-Cost Consultations Will Be Available over the Holidays










San Diego, CA (PRWEB) December 25, 2013

http://www.resource4thepeople.com/defectivedrugs/yasmin.html

Resource4thePeople announced today that its national network of attorneys will be available over the upcoming holiday season to consumers inquiring about legal options to seek compensation over allegations* that the popular contraceptives Yaz and Yasmin may cause life-threatening blood-clotting problems.

“We are proud to announce that our policy of providing free consultations to consumers inquiring about these allegations and their legal options to seek compensation will not be interrupted by the holiday season,” said Resource4thePeople.

The announcement was made after numerous inquiries were made by consumers about whether the Resource4thePeople national network of attorneys would be available over the holiday season to provide legal options to those affected by allegations contained in Yaz and Yasmin (drospirenone) lawsuits,* said Resource4thePeople.

“We have been seeing a steady increase in the number of consumers inquiring about alleged Yaz and Yasmin (drospirenone) side effects since the Food and Drug Administration issued a Health Warning** about possible blood-clotting dangers.”

In its April 10, 2012 Health Warning, FDA officials said the agency had conducted a review and “has concluded that drospirenone-containing birth control pills may be associated with a higher risk for blood clots than other progestin-containing pills. FDA is adding information about the studies to the labels of drospirenone-containing birth control pills.”

There are currently nearly 10,000 lawsuits from across the country containing allegations Yaz and Yasmin may cause life-threatening blood-clotting problems currently consolidated before a single federal court judge.

Those figures*** were compiled by the U.S. Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation and show that as of the end of the latest reporting period — Nov. 18, 2013 — there were 9,837 Yaz and Yasmin lawsuits in the multidistrict litigation.

Some of these lawsuits are being settled, according to a recent financial report**** from pharmaceutical giant Bayer, the manufacturer of Yaz and Yasmin contraceptives. It shows that the company has agreed to pay out nearly $ 1.6 billion so far to settle cases in the huge U.S. federal court multidistrict litigation.*

The progress of the settlements was recently reported to Judge David R. Herndon, in the U.S. District Court in the Southern District of Illinois, at a Nov. 14, 2013 status hearing.

The figures about legal costs involving thousands of lawsuits alleging that the contraceptives have caused life-threatening blood-clotting problems were detailed in pharmaceutical giant Bayer’s stockholder newsletter for the third quarter of 2013.

The massive payoffs were included in the Oct. 31, 2013 posting informing investors about the financial progress of the company, including an update of its legal costs.

“This is a huge amount of money and shows the extent of how significant the allegations about blood-clotting made by thousands of women are and how they are being compensated for a possibly fatal condition,” said Resource4thePeople.

In the third quarter financial report Bayer reported the following details:

“As of October 18, 2013, Bayer had reached agreements, without admission of liability, to settle the claims of approximately 7,660 claimants in the U.S. for a total amount of about US$ 1.575 billion. Bayer has only been settling claims in the U.S. for venous clot injuries (deep vein thrombosis or pulmonary embolism) after a case-specific analysis of medical records on a rolling basis. Such injuries are alleged by about 2,300 of the pending unsettled claimants. Bayer will continue to consider the option of settling such individual lawsuits in the U.S. on a case-by-case basis.”

Bayer also has agreed to pay up to $ 24 million to settle other lawsuits in the multidistrict litigation involving allegations over gall bladder side effects, according to the court file in the litigation.

These settlements are a different component of this consolidated litigation in Illinois in which plaintiffs claimed that they suffered gall bladder injuries because they used Yaz and Yasmin as contraceptives.

Meanwhile, as a Sept. 15, 2013 article***** in the Chicago Tribune points out, federal officials are being asked to escalate warnings about possible blood-clotting problems associated with the contraceptives and at least one consumer non-profit organization has called for the products to be pulled from the marketplace.

“The concerns raised by women’s and consumer groups center focus on the same allegations made in the Yaz and Yasmin lawsuits — that the use of these birth control pills may pose life-threatening side effects to the women who use them,” said Resource4thePeople.

The Chicago Tribune article questioned the effectiveness and safety of Yaz and Yasmin contraceptives and cited increased concern about the products from women’s groups:

“Some women’s health advocates want a stronger, black-box warning that is more likely to be noticed,” the Tribune reported. “The advocacy group Public Citizen, meanwhile, has placed drugs containing drospirenone — including Yaz, Yasmin, Gianvi and Zarah — on its ‘do not use’ list because they ‘can cause increased blood levels of potassium and (are) no more effective than other oral contraceptives in preventing pregnancy.’ On the Internet, people who call themselves ‘Yaz survivors’ post accounts of their experiences.”

In a related matter, the Canadian Broadcasting Company reported that physicians there are linking Yaz and Yasmin to 23 deaths. In a June 12, 2013 posting***** The CBC said that “According to documents obtained from Health Canada, doctors and pharmacists say Yaz and Yasmin are suspected in the deaths of the women, who mostly died suddenly from blood clots.”

Health Canada is the Canadian equivalent to the FDA, which, on April 10, 2012, issued a Health Warning informing consumers and physicians about possible Yaz and Yasmin blood clotting side effects.******
