ORLANDO (Business News) May 8, 2003. Fibromyalgia Specialist, sister company of AllergicToFood.com, today announced it has received a grant from a major drug maker to do double-blind clinical trials on Dr. Dantini's treatment protocol for treating Fibromyalgia.
Dr. Dantini and staff are very excited about the opportunity. The doctor has been treating patients with Fibromyalgia for years and he finally decided to get the word out. The first step was making a web-site. Now we are in the process of writing the book. Then we encouraged the doctor to contact one of the drug makers about doing a study. There are only a couple of anti-viral medicines he uses to treat this, so he called one of them, told them his background with Fibromyalgia and how he treats it. The head of research came here and saw for herself and the end result was the grant, said Donna Leemhuis, office manager.
There are a lot of people in the U.S. and all over the world that suffer from Fibromyalgia and they are very skeptical because doctors don't know what to do with them. All kinds of treatments are used. Some make no sense.
My advantage in diagnosing and treating this illness is my perspective on this illness. I got Fibromyalgia back in the mid-eighties and through research and trial-and-error I figured out the cause, healed myself, and then applied it to other patients. I have treated thousands of patients over the years, which has allowed me to really develop my protocol for diagnosing and treating Fibromyalgia. There are specific signs to detect Fibromyalgia and a specific way to treat it.
Receiving the grant is a very important step because no other doctor can make that claim. I plan to change the way people look at Fibromyalgia and give other doctors the correct tools they need to treat it. I firmly believe the clinical trials will be greatly successful because I have been treating Fibromyalgia for years, says Dr. Dantini.
Sources say it will probably take months to work out the details with the drug maker on the parameters of the double-blind clinical trial. They would not disclose the grant amount as of yet, but they did say it was enough to do a pretty sizable study. In addition, due to government regulations, the terms of the contract states that they cannot release the name of the funding drug company until completion of the study. But they did say it is one of the top five drug makers in the world. More details will be announced in the coming months.
