Targeted Medical Pharma Presents at the California Association of Health Facilities' Annual Convention
David Silver, M.D., executive vice president of scientific and medical affairs at Targeted Medical Pharma, Inc. (OTCQB: TRGM) (OTCBB: TRGM), discussed the utilization of prescription only medical foods in a skilled nursing setting at this year's California Association of Health Facilities' 62nd annual convention, held in Palm Springs, Calif., on November 12.
The presentation, “Safer and More Effective Pharmacologic Alternatives,” focused on the safety and efficacy of prescription medical foods for the long term management of pain, cognitive and sleep disorders. Dr. Silver also presented initial data outcomes from an ongoing clinical trial among nursing home patients administered with the medical foods Sentra AM® and Sentra PM®. Preliminary results among trial participants show an improvement in alertness, memory recall, balance, quality of sleep, sleep latency, sleep duration, as well as a reduction in nighttime awakenings.
“Medical foods provide physicians with a non-addictive and effective prescription alternative to the traditional pharmacologic treatments currently utilized in the skilled nursing setting,” said board certified rheumatologist Dr. Silver. “These medications offer patients a safer way to manage pain, sleep and cognitive disorders, without the risks associated with many single molecule agents currently utilized in this setting.”
