1. NEW PROTEQUE NON-STEROID APPROACH FOR ECZEMA CHILDREN AT SAN FRANCISCO PEDIATRIC CONFERENCE

US and international pediatricians attended the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) national Conference and discussed with Proteque International their successful use of non-steroid, Proteque(R) SPS to manage eczema and dermatitis patients. More than 5,500 pediatricians and other health care professionals attended this premier pediatric educational event in San Francisco.

Eczema (sometimes called dermatitis) is easy to diagnose--itchy, red, dry, peeling skin, sometimes with cracks or rash. It is incredibly itchy, sensitive, stings, burns and the pain makes babies and children (and some adults) cry and scratch. "Over 5000 eczema and dermatitis specialists from dermatology, neonatology, ENT, pediatric allergists, and pediatric departments reported positive outcomes in actual patient use with this new steroid-sparing approach," said Fred Brachman, President and CEO of Proteque International. "Most common types of patient conditions were pediatric eczema, skin allergies and atopic and contact dermatitis including perioral (around the mouth), face and body." The once-a-day, water-resistant dimethicone-based Proteque formula, with four non-steroid anti-inflammatory and long-lasting antibacterial ingredients, reduces erythema and transepidermal water loss, and killed Staph. Aureus and E.Coli according to controlled clinical studies at UCSF Department of Dermatology and NCSU.

One attendee at the AAP conference, Dr. Derrina Wu, in private practice in San Francisco, reported four days later, "I actually tried the product on my daughter who has atopic dermatitis. The instant soothing effect on her irritated skin without the hydrocortisone and with all natural ingredients was what impressed me and made me a believer in the product. I have begun to recommend it to several patients."

Brachman said, "Proteque is recommended alone with no steroids, or as combination therapy with a lower potency corticosteroid. Pediatricians, allergists and dermatologists prefer to prevent the recurrence of eczema and dermatitis instead of repeated use of debilitating strong topical or oral corticosteroids and antibiotics. These can cause thinning of the skin, scaring, osteoporosis and growth problems for children. No prescription is required and the product contains no steroids or immunosuppressants such as tacrolimus."

Proteque SPS (pronounced Pro-teck) is available online at National Allergy Supply (800-522-1448). Also available at over 250 Dermatologist, Allergist & Pediatrician Offices or can be ordered in 24 hours at over 40,000 independent, and chain pharmacies, such as Wal-Mart, KMart, Walgreens, Kroger, Rite-Aid, Long's, Osco, Eckerd's, Sav-On, Safeway, and CVS.

More information, including clinical research, educational and ordering information is at www.proteque.com or 800-953-9250. Proteque International's mission is to provide safer integrated solutions for eczema and dermatitis sufferers as recommended by Pediatric, Dermatology, Family Practice, OBGYN and Allergy physicians.

2. PROTEQUE REFERENCES FOR AMATEUR AND PROFESSIONAL SPORTS ATHLETES (CHILDREN, TEENS AND ADULTS) WITH SKIN PROBLEMS

Millions of children and adults are busy with winter sports of all kinds.  We have many requests from physicians, consumers, and patients (children, teens and adults) asking about Proteque for relieving and preventing skin problems related to playing sports – especially snow skiers, wrestling, gymnastics, indoor swimming, football, basketball, hockey, soccer, bicycling, scuba diving and running or jogging.  Whether the skin problems resulted from allergies or contact dermatitis, the most common symptoms are inflammation, rashes, redness, itch, blisters, infections, acne, sunburn, windburn, soreness, skin cancer and pain.  Although we are pleased so many professional and amateur athletes and parents have reported success by using Proteque to prevent and manage those conditions, we also believe it is important for athletes and parents to understand the underlying causes and how to prevent them.  The problems are a combination of friction, bacteria or fungus exposure, skin dehydration, allergies, perspiration, and other factors. To help provide you with professional references on those subjects, we have provided the Internet links below.  If you have any questions relating to your problem or to use of Proteque for sports-related skin problems, please email them to info@proteque.com so we may have our professional staff and dermatology consultants provide you proper information or referrals.

 

3. PROTEQUE  INTRODUCED BY NATIONAL ALLERGY SUPPLY AT THE AMERICAN COLLEGE OF ALLERGY, ASTHMA, & IMMUNOLOGY (ACAAI) 2001 ANNUAL MEETING NOVEMBER 16-21, 2001 IN ORLANDO, FLORIDA

Proteque was introduced by National Allergy Supply at the American College of Allergy, Asthma, & Immunology (ACAAI) 2001 Annual Meeting November 16-21, 2001 in Orlando, Florida "Allergic disorders affect more than 40 million Americans and is the sixth leading source of chronic illness in the United States," said Dr. Santilli at the national conference. "It's important that people recognize what triggers their allergies and ask their doctors for the best form of treatment available --knowing that improved or enhanced treatments are on the horizon." According to a national survey of allergists and primary care physicians (PCPs) released today, more than 65 percent of physicians said they are only somewhat satisfied with currently available medications for treating allergies. "Often my patients don't receive adequate symptom relief fast enough, which prevents them from living their daily lives fully," said Warren V. Filley, M.D., ACAAI fellow and clinical professor of medicine and clinical instructor of pediatrics at the Oklahoma University Medical Center in Oklahoma City.
