Date:3/2/2009

d it has become the sixth leading cause of death. These numbers are expected to increase as the baby boomer generation ages and as medical technology continues to advance. In fact, it is estimated that 10 million U.S. baby boomers alive today will develop Alzheimer's disease. With the lack of innovative new medications, both patients and caregivers are seeking alternative therapies to improve quality of life.

About Medical Foods

A Medical Food is an FDA-regulated product, in a relatively new category of medical protocols defined by Congress as part of the Orphan Drug Act. A Medical Food is formulated to be consumed or administered orally under the supervision of a physician and is intended for the specific dietary management of a disease or condition for which distinctive nutritional requirements, based on recognized scientific principles, are established by medical evaluation. Medical Foods are often prescription products, but are different than drugs or dietary supplements (also called "nutraceuticals") in several aspects, such as their claims. Claims for both Medical Foods and drugs must be supported by solid laboratory and clinical data. Medical Food ingredients have Generally Recognized As Safe (GRAS) designation, the highest FDA standard of safety given to foods. Medical Foods, sometimes prescribed in addition to drugs, represent an entirely different scientific and medical approach to managing diseases.
