SCHOFIELD, Wis., Jan. 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- PuraMed BioScience®, Inc, (OTCBB: PMBS) announces that its over-the-counter, homeopathic migraine pain reliever formulation, LipiGesic® M, has received a Notice of Allowance for its patent application from the United States Patent and Trademark Office.
LipiGesic M's exclusive formulation of feverfew and ginger delivered in a sublingual (under-the-tongue), non-aqueous gel has been clinically studied for the treatment of acute migraine at three prominent headache centers across the United States and has been found to be highly effective, as published in the June 2011 issue of the top-tier medical journal, Headache: The Journal of Head and Face Pain.
LipiGesic M also has been recognized as an excellent first-line therapy in the treatment of acute migraine that is compatible with all other acute treatments by Dr. Roger Cady in the article "Advances in Drug Development for Acute Migraine" published in the December 2012 issue of Drugs, a medical journal evaluating drugs and drug therapies read by over 500,000 healthcare providers.
"Allowance of the patent along with results of our clinical trial and recommendations from leading headache specialists prove that LipiGesic M is a unique and highly effective treatment for migraine headache and associated symptoms," said Russell Mitchell, president and CEO of PuraMed BioScience.
"LipiGesic M does not require a prescription. The all-natural formulation outperforms the leading prescription medications while costing up to 75 percent less," said Mitchell. "LipiGesic M gives migraineurs a powerful tool in the fight against migraines without the debilitating side effects, drowsiness, or rebound headaches caused by other chemically based prescription and over-the-counter migraine medications."
LipiGesic M is currently available over-the-counter at Walgreens and CVS/pharmacy stores.
Presently, a clinical study is underway using LipiGesic M for treatment of migraine in children and adolescents. Results are expected in 2013.
