Weight Loss Doc Warns Of False Hope on New Weight Loss Drug

Weight Loss Doc Warns Of False Hope on New Weight Loss Drug

Fat-Me-Not: Weight Loss Diet Of The Future

Rock HIll, South Carolina (PRWEB) April 07, 2015

After news from the 97th annual meeting of the Endocrine Society, also known as ENDO ’15, that a newly discovered drug effectively speeds up metabolism in mice, a weight loss expert is encouraging caution among those looking for a miracle cure for obesity.

“This new drug is called GC-1, and it shows a lot of hope,” says author and co-founder of the Ace Medical Weight Loss Center Dr. Myo Nwe, “but its application is still a decade away. Those trying to lose weight often hear about new advances on the distant horizon, and it can actually drive them toward risky diet plans or appetite suppressants on the market now. That’s dangerous.”

As widely reported earlier in March, GC-1 was revealed at the conference, and shown to reduce cholesterol levels and enhance the metabolism of obese mice, with some being genetically overweight and others whose obesity was “diet-induced.” There’s hope that similar results will be seen when a human trial beginning as early as next year, though successfully bringing the drug to the marketplace would likely take closer to a decade.

“People hear about a bold new drug or treatment, and it gets them hopeful about what’s actually available now. But that can be false hope,” Dr. Nwe explains.

Dr. Nwe previously authored the weight loss guide “Fat Me Not” to challenge many common myths of dieting, and also developed the Slimplate Weight Loss System which is designed to help dieters maintain proper portion control. She is a double board certified physician by American Board of Obesity Medicine and Internal Medicine, and practices in both the Carolinas.

“I always try to encourage tried-and-true methods or information, always rooted in science and our understanding of the human body,” she adds. “I’m especially suspect of the many varied appetite suppressants on the market currently. They tend to make a lot of wild promises.”

“We successfully adjust our appetites through gradual changes to our food intake, we don’t jar the stomach with foreign chemicals or herbs in an effort to change the body’s natural mechanics. It’s risky, can have some very adverse side effects, and on top of everything else it’s usually entirely unsustainable.”

Study author Dr. Kevin Price of the Houston Methodist Research Institute presented the findings on GC-1. Hundreds of mice were given the drug, which manipulates how sensitive the body is to insulin. Some mice saw as much as 50 percent loss of their fat mass in as little as two weeks.

GC-1 is currently being used in human trials for the purpose of lowering cholesterol only. Considerably higher dosages would need to be approved to see the drugs purported weight loss benefits, according to Dr. Price.

Nwe’s book “Fat Me Not” and portion control Slimplate Weight Loss System are available here.

Vascular Graft (Bypass) Market International 2020 Forecasts Analysis

Vascular Graft (Bypass) Market International 2020 Forecasts Analysis

Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) March 26, 2015

Vascular Grafting is a common and popular procedure of surgically implanting a tissue into a body part to replace or compensate a damaged blood vessels. Usually it is preferred that the tissue used is cut out from someone’s own vein as that reduces the risk of infection. Any synthetic implants are highly disposed to thrombosis or clotting, occlusions and infection caused due to protein and cell adsorption and coagulation activation. When such an instance occurs the tissue implanted has to be operated out or replaced immediately. Newer technologies are being developed by using a unique fibrous composite structure to create small diameter vascular grafts so that implementation of such vascular grafts can curtail the risk of redoing the surgery.

To know further on vascular graft market analysis one can refer to the report (http://www.deepresearchreports.com/113983-toc.html). It provides a complete analysis of the market, industry chain structure and industry overview, policy analysis, news analysis, etc. As a part of the industry chain analysis the report details out the upstream raw materials of Vascular Graft, equipments, client survey, various marketing channels available, proposals and various other related inputs for the buyer. For the technical data part the report analyzes Vascular Graft leading suppliers on capacity, commercial production, manufacturing plants distribution, R&D status, technology sources, and raw materials sources. Some of the important manufacturers covered in this report are- Atrium Medical Corporation, Bard Peripheral vascular, Inc, Vascutek Limited, W. L. Gore, Terumo, Maquet, Junken Medical and Shanghai Suokang. There is a complete profiling of each of this manufacturers along with their production capacity and a cost-price value analysis of the production process. It includes the company’s product offerings along with the specifications. Also key contact information in the company.

Presently there is lot of demand for vascular grafting due to lack of alternatives. It is used widely by the people suffering from diabetes and cardiovascular diseases especially by paitents undergoing dialysis as most of the patients need a synthetic vascular grafts to get access to the arteries for the dialysis process. There is very little competition in this market from other products as there are nearly no alternative available. However there is significant competition among the suppliers for the basic synthetic materials, including PTFE.

But there is immense competition among the manufacturers across the globe for getting a share in the market especially in the US. End-consumers have almost no role to play in the product selection. It is usually the surgeon who selects the product. Thus the marketing team of the manufacturing companies should devise a good promotion plan to target the doctors and specialists in this field. However the market prediction is that the need for vascular grafts will declines as soon as there are non-surgical alternatives such as medicines or other invasive techniques available in the market.

The report deals with analysis of different markets with a special focus on the Chinese market. It outlines various products available, industry trends and countries in which there is a need for the product. Towards the end the report there is a SWOT analysis of the on-going projects, a feasibility check for the investors to understand the risk and rewards on entering and investing in this market, investment return analysis, and development trend analysis. The report has been compiled from inputs provided by various experts of the Vascular Graft Industry and also data gathered from various research surveys conducted among technical experts and market engineers.
