SCHOFIELD, Wis., Feb. 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- PuraMed BioScience, Inc. (OTC QB: PMBS) announced today that it has recently commenced a clinical study of its unique non-prescription migraine treatment, LipiGesic®M on children and adolescents. Currently there are no prescription migraine medications recommended for those under the age of 18, and PuraMed hopes to attract that market with the results from this upcoming study.
"We are very excited to begin the clinical study of LipiGesic®M and its effectiveness on children, said PuraMed BioScience CEO, Russ Mitchell. Currently there is an estimated 2 million migraine sufferers under the age of 18, who cannot be recommended prescription treatment, and we believe this will be a significant market to capture. Due to our high efficacy rate and low side effect profile, we believe the results will demonstrate that LipiGesic®M is not only the best option for migraine relief amongst adults, but children as well."
This multi-site, double blind placebo controlled study will be led by leading headache researcher, Dr. Roger Cady, who was also responsible for PuraMed's previous clinical study which was published in the top-tier medical journal Headache. The study will include children ages 6-11 as well as adolescents ages 12-17 and will be conducted at key centers across the country.
