Glucosamine and chondroitin formulations have been used as the standard of care in joint health for more than two decades with limited success. The big question in the mind of health care practitioners today is what’s next in joint health.
Newport Beach, CA (PRWEB) October 16, 2012
The sponsored symposium titled “BioCell Collagen: A novel holistic dietary solution to joint and connective tissue health” was held at the Four Seasons Hotel, Singapore on October 12, 2012 where Joosang Park, PhD, MBA presented latest scientific data on BioCell Collagen to leading doctors in the field of orthopedics. This year’s ASM was combined with the 6th annual ASEAN Arthroplasty Association Meeting, making the event one of the largest gatherings of orthopedic professionals in Singapore.
“Glucosamine and chondroitin formulations have been used as the standard of care in joint health for more than two decades with limited success. The big question in the mind of health care practitioners today is what’s next in joint health. I believe BioCell Collagen offers significant advantages with its advanced patented composition which mirrors human articular cartilage and provides bioavailable collagen type II and hyaluronic acid for the comprehensive maintenance of healthy joint function”, said Melvin Wong, President of MD Pharmaceuticals. Within the last year, MD Pharmaceuticals has introduced BioCell Collagen in Singapore as a prescription only product made available through general practitioners and orthopedic surgeons.
“We are pleased to have partnered with MD Pharmaceuticals to bring BioCell Collagen to orthopedic surgeons and general practitioners in Singapore at this highly specialized and targeted scientific meeting” said Suhail Ishaq, president. “We have always believed that addressing joint health requires a comprehensive approach, one that not only targets cartilage, but the related tendons, ligaments, and synovial fluid. Orthopedic doctors are prescribing MD Pharmaceuticals BioCell Collagen as a complement to traditional therapies and for post-surgical joint support.”
