Nutra Pharma Corp., a biotechnology company that is developing drugs for HIV and Multiple Sclerosis (MS) has announced that Designer Diagnostics, a wholly owned subsidiary of Nutra Pharma, has sponsored the website stopNTMnow.com to educate the public about Nontuberculous Mycobacterium (NTM).
“It is important to educate the public about the importance of NTMs, as they are a leading cause of death in HIV/AIDS and immuno-suppressed patients,” explained Rik J Deitsch, Chairman and CEO of Nutra Pharma Corporation. “There are currently over 40 million people suffering from HIV/AIDS that could benefit from this information. For example, most people don’t realize that NTMs can be traced to everyday events such as sitting in hot tubs at the community gym.”
The stopNTMnow.com website will feature information about Nontuberculous Mycobacterium: its symptoms, diagnosis and treatments, as well as an interactive communications forum for patients and medical professionals.
“When patients go undiagnosed with Nontuberculous Mycobacterium, effects can be devastating,” commented Neil Roth, President of Designer Diagnostics. “Treatment may require multiple drugs that are known to cause severe side effects. Our ultimate goal is to prevent late stages of the NTM infections from occurring. We believe this can be accomplished by educating the patients about early detection, recognizing the symptoms and showing ways to prevent the infections from spreading.”
In March, Designer Diagnostics announced the launch of a medical diagnostics test kit for the rapid isolation and identification of Nontuberculous Mycobacterium. The TestKits were designed utilizing patents that were both licensed and acquired from NanoLogix.
