December 2015 Message from LDNscience® Founder
Dear LDNscience® Visitor,
Good health is so important but it isn’t always easy finding the solutions to your health issues.
Go back fifteen years--remember how difficult it was to find out useful information about off-label medications such as Low Dose Naltrexone (LDN)? Many patients, perhaps yourself included, were desperately searching for some answers and they weren’t there.
When I first began looking at LDN some fifteen years ago, no clinical trial had been undertaken anywhere with LDN. Many physicians are unwilling to prescribe a medication that has not been rigorously tested through clinical trials. This is particularly so when the medication is to be used off-label (not for its approved use). I recognized the potential of LDN, saw the need for proper research and took action.
Thirteen years have passed since I initiated the first ever clinical trial of LDN, at Hershey Medical Center, Penn State University. Since then many reputable institutions have followed our lead in performing trials and publishing reports about LDN including:
- Cleveland Clinic (USA)
- Drexel University (USA)
- Erasmus Medical Center (Netherlands)
- Loyola University (USA)
- University of Erlangen- Nuremberg (Germany)
- SUNY Upstate (USA)
- Stanford University (USA)
- London University Hospital (Canada)
- Ecole Polytechnique Laboratoire (France)
- Brown University (USA)
- University of California (USA)
- San Raffaele Scientific Institute (Italy)
- Tel Aviv Medical Center (Israel)
What impact have these trials had on patient lives? It is estimated that at least 300,000 patients worldwide are using LDN today! That is a staggering number considering that no pharmaceutical company is promoting LDN and most doctors learn about it from their patients.
I launched LDNscience.org nearly six years to provide patients with the information they need to make truly informed choices about their health and transform their lives. I believe it’s the most powerful ever patient-led initiative and a model that can be replicated many times, with the potential to revolutionize medical practice.
Remember, what a breath of fresh air LDNscience.org has been in the world of medical research and how it helped you find the solutions you needed? The need for that information is growing and technology moves on so it is time to redesign our site to cater to the rapidly increasing demands.
We want to give the power over your health decisions back to you. Don’t leave it solely up to the pharmaceutical companies who are profit-centered or your doctor who may just be too busy. Here is YOUR opportunity to be part of our goal to help the next 1 million patients. Support the creation of the new and improved LDNscience.org - set to launch in February 2016 - in one of two ways:
