Spring Hill, FL (PRWEB) April 12, 2013
MedActive is honored to be a supporting sponsor of the 2013 Sjögren’s Syndrome National Patient Conference on April 12 and 13 at the Hyatt Regency Bethesda.
April is Sjögren’s Syndrome Awareness Month. The Sjögren’s Conference is staged annually during the month of April by the Sjögren’s Syndrome Foundation, headquartered in Bethesda, Maryland.
MedActive Oral Pharmaceuticals, LLC manufactures MedActive® Oral Relief Brands to address the complex oral care needs of patients managing chronic illnesses, including Sjögren’s syndrome, lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, cancer, diabetes, renal failure, hypertension and other conditions. The most common oral health issues include dry mouth, oral sores and lesions, oral thrush, inflammation, tooth sensitivity and bleeding gums.
Sjögren’s syndrome is an auto-immune disorder identified by its two most common symptoms – dry eyes and dry mouth. It often accompanies other immune-system disorders, such as rheumatoid arthritis and lupus. In Sjögren’s syndrome, the mucous membranes and moisture-secreting glands of the eyes and mouth are usually affected first, resulting in decreased production of tears and saliva.
The conference theme for 2013 is “Discover the Possibilities” and will include medical experts, who will present the latest research on Sjögren’s syndrome and answer audience questions. The keynote speaker, Ann Fry, MSW, who was diagnosed with Breast Cancer and one year later was diagnosed with Sjögren’s, will speak about her “adventures” through illness, resiliency, thriving and the things that get her through the set backs. Other topics presented include "Dry Mouth and Sjögren’s," “Podiatry Issues” and “Understanding Blood Changes and Test Results.”
The MedActive® Oral Relief CONTINUUM™ includes lozenges, sprays, gels and rinses which deliver a patented proprietary formulation of ULTRAMULSION®, a long lasting tissue conditioner, and Spilanthes Extract, a natural saliva enhancer. All MedActive® Brands provide “Patient-friendly”™ hedonics (premium taste and mouthfeel) to support superior patient adherence and “around-the-clock” relief for discomfort from dry mouth, oral sores and lesions, inflammation, thrush and tooth sensitivity.
All MedActive® Oral Care and Relief Brands are available exclusively at independent retail pharmacies.
