Pharmacy Checker's Antitrust Suit Against Big Pharma
This summer, Pharmacy Checker launched a lawsuit against a number of Big Pharma groups alleging the use of shadow regulation to control consumer access to information regarding online foreign pharmacies offering low-cost medications to United States residents. These groups, the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy (NABP), Alliance for Safe Online Pharmacies (ASOP), Center for Safe Internet Pharmacies Ltd. (CSIP), LegitScript LLC, and Partnership for Safe Medicines, Inc. (PSM), are accused of leveraging relationships with internet gate keepers including search engines and domain name registrars. They are doing so in order to blacklist legitimate Canadian pharmacies, foreign pharmacies, and PharmacyChecker.com, restricting access to valuable information regarding ordering medication online, monopolizing the market and keeping U.S. drug prices high. Brand name medications can cost up to 90% less from a reputable international pharmacy than from a US pharmacy - [Read more]
what-are-dermal-fillers
In the age of selfies, we’re so concerned with how we’re going to appear in that next Instagram photo, it’s no wonder so many people are interested in improving the look of their face. As we age, the network of collagen fibers that supports the connective tissue of our face begins to degrade. This means that as we get older, we are more susceptible to lines, wrinkles, and hollows. While we can do our part to slow the process down, like a healthy diet and lifestyle, it’s an inevitable part of getting older. When it comes to keeping your face looking younger and firmer, dermal fillers are a great treatment option. Organic chemicals, fillers often take the form of a gel. These gels are injected into wrinkles, lines, and hollows to “fill them out” and add volume. The most popular treatment areas are the regions surrounding the eyes, cheeks, lips, and jawline. Medica Depot offers several types of dermal fillers, each of which is made from different ingr [Read more]
Possible Filler Complications?
Filler Complications Introduction The increased popularity of dermal fillers in enhancing facial aesthetics is due to their minimally invasive nature, short recovery time, and excellent outcomes. While collagen fillers dominated the market for over 20 years since their approval by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 1981, it was the emergence of hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers that paved the way for new filler brands and technologies. As with any medical procedure, a multitude of complications can occur after filler injection. The supposed reversibility of HA-based fillers adds their popularity; however, increased use of these fillers also puts less common but significant side effects in the spotlight. Injecting physicians must be aware of the adverse effects associated with dermal fillers because some of these complications can be devastating and irreversible. Additionally, some complications occur more frequently with specific filler materials or products; thus, the injector mu [Read more]

Woman receiving injection to contour jawline
Introduction Patients seeking facial rejuvenation often present with prominent nasolabial folds, marionette lines, perioral lines, loss of volume to the lips, and changes along the jawline. The patient’s appearance is significantly affected by the loss of definition along the mandibular border. A contoured jawline is often seen as indicative of a more youthful appearance. Aging is a natural phenomenon and gravitational forces, increased tissue laxity, and progressive bone resorption all play a role in the facial manifestations. Atrophy and resorption of the malar, submalar, and buccal fat pads lead to volume loss in the midface. With aging, the jawline’s shape becomes less aesthetically appealing. As a result, there has been a significant increase in the number of non-surgical and minimally invasive procedures available to efficiently contour the jawline and restore lost facial volume. Patient Analysis Dr. Kate Goldie, an aesthetic practitioner, utilizes a full-face con [Read more]
synvisc vs euflexxa image comparison
What Are They? Synvisc (Hylan G-F 20) is the brand name for the high-molecular-weight injectable fluid that contains both hylan A and hylan B polymers. The polymers in Synvisc, like most hyaluronic derivatives, are derived from rooster combs and are classified as avian-derived hyaluronic acid (AV-HA). Euflexxa, on the other hand is made from a very highly purified product extracted from bacterial cells. It is a polysaccharide consisting of a repeating disaccharide of N-Acetylglucosamine and sodium glucuronate that are linked by glycosidic bonds. What are the Differences? While Supartz, Synvisc, and other AV-HA brands are similar in their efficacy, Synvisc offers a one-dose treatment that prevents multiple trips to a doctor’s office. According to the National Institute of Health, AV-HA treatments all appear to relieve pain for between 4 and 14 weeks by restoring both mechanical and biomechanical homeostasis in the joint.
