Hereditary Hemochromatosis
April 2017 Issue
 
 
 

Nearly every major medical breakthrough over the past 50 years can be attributed to new discoveries that were made possible through meticulous biomedical research. Many diseases and conditions that previously took a heavy toll on patients in terms of both morbidity and mortality are now either treatable or preventable thanks in large part to painstaking research that expanded the frontiers of scientific knowledge and moved the most promising basic research developments into tangible health benefits through human clinical trails. Ongoing research is also the key that will open the door to additional major medical advances and breakthroughs in the future.

Our staff at Medifocus is committed to keeping our subscribers to the Medifocus Digest Alert on Hereditary Hemochromatosis abreast of the latest new research developments that have recently been published in the medical literature for this condition. In this issue of the Digest Alert, you will find a focused list of hand-picked journal article references that represent the latest advances in basic and clinical research for Hereditary Hemochromatosis. These articles represent the current state-of-the-art of the research that will hopefully lead to additional major advances and breakthroughs in the clinical management of Hereditary Hemochromatosis. You can access the summaries of each article referenced below by simply clicking on the article Title.

We will continue to update you with the latest scientific and clinical developments through the Medifocus Digest Alert on Hereditary Hemochromatosis every 3 months. Thank you for your ongoing subscription to this publication.

What Our Customers Are Saying...

"The MediFocus Guidebook on Hereditary Hemochromatosis was not only extremely informative and well-written but it also explained the genetic aspects of this condition in a way that can be readily understood even by people who donít have a medical or scientific background. I was pleased to learn that so much research is ongoing worldwide to try to better understand the causes of this condtion and, hopefully, come up with a way to prevent this disorder from happening in the first place."

"Your Guidebook on Hereditary Hemochromatosis contains a wealth of information that has helped our family answer many of the questions we had about this relatively obscure genetic disease. The Guidebook allowed us to fully understand the disease and know what to ask...and who to ask to additional information."
