A word from Rosemary Anderson, President NF, Inc. Michigan

Dear NF friends,

For the past several years researchers have suspected that there is a higher risk for breast cancer in individuals with NF1.  This research has now come to Michigan.  Dr. Xia Wang at Henry Ford Hospital is working on a grant from the Department of Defence to study breast cancer in NF1.

If you or a family member with NF1 has had breast cancer, regardless of how long ago, please consider contacting Dr. Wang to help her gather data.  Simply email her at [email protected]  She’ll send you all the information you need to decide whether you wish to participate.

You may also contact Dr. Wang by phone:

Dear NF friends,

A month ago I announced Phase 2 of the Neuropathy Rx trials.  There are still plenty of openings in the trial.  If you attempted to contact Patty Hall and got no reply, please email back to me, and I will pass on your information to her.  Some emails did not get through.

Here’s my original announcement again –

Last year we helped recruit patients for an informal study of the nutritional supplement, Neuropathy Rx, for possible benefits in reducing the size of neurofibromas and preventing the development of new tumors.  Read about the product at www.neuropathysolutions.com.

Results from the initial study were very promising, so a second, more formal, study for NF1 patients is being undertaken.  The research nurse in charge of signing up participants is Patty Hall, RN.  She has written to me:

<< Here are the qualifications for the study we’re starting on Oct 1, so if you could get the word out that I’m looking for 60 patients to follow on supplement or placebo, I would appreciate it. Any interested patients can contact me at 616-826-4033 or through email at [email protected] Continue reading Want to participate in Phase 2 of the Neuropathy Rx trials?
