Peripheral Neuropathy
February 2018 Issue
 
 
 

Nearly every major medical breakthrough over the past 50 years can be attributed to new discoveries that were made possible through meticulous biomedical research. Many diseases and conditions that previously took a heavy toll on patients in terms of both morbidity and mortality are now either treatable or preventable thanks in large part to painstaking research that expanded the frontiers of scientific knowledge and moved the most promising basic research developments into tangible health benefits through human clinical trails. Ongoing research is also the key that will open the door to additional major medical advances and breakthroughs in the future.

Our staff at Medifocus is committed to keeping our subscribers to the Medifocus Digest Alert on Peripheral Neuropathy abreast of the latest new research developments that have recently been published in the medical literature for this condition. In this issue of the Digest Alert, you will find a focused list of hand-picked journal article references that represent the latest advances in basic and clinical research for Peripheral Neuropathy. These articles represent the current state-of-the-art of the research that will hopefully lead to additional major advances and breakthroughs in the clinical management of Peripheral Neuropathy. You can access the summaries of each article referenced below by simply clicking on the article Title.

We will continue to update you with the latest scientific and clinical developments through the Medifocus Digest Alert on Peripheral Neuropathy every 3 months. Thank you for your ongoing subscription to this publication.

Sincerely,
Elliot Jacob, Ph.D.

What Our Customers Are Saying...

"This is the BEST informational and reference book pertaining to my long-time ailment 'Peripheral Neuropathy'. I have researched this relatively obscure subject for seven years. The MediFocus Guidebook on Peripheral Neuropathy is easy reading, concise, and contains great references."
H.S.
Bellevue, Nebraska


"Your very informative Guidebook helped me understand my Peripheral Neuropathy much better than my doctor had time to explain. Thank you."
P.S.
Midland, Texas


"I recently purchased your MediFocus Guidebook on Peripheral Neuropathy and found the information quite helpful in making decisions about the direction I wanted to take in dealing with my condition. Even after meeting with a Neurologist and being tested, I had many questions that he was unable to answer. We all have to take control of our own health care and the MediFocus Guidebook is a great tool for doing that."
