Monarch Labs to Demonstrate Maggot Therapy at Diabetic Limb Salvage Conference
Date:9/22/2009

IRVINE, Calif., Sept. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Monarch Labs LLC, the exclusive supplier of Medical Maggots(TM) in the United States, announced today that its Laboratory Director and co-founder, Dr. Ronald Sherman, will attend the Diabetic Limb Salvage conference in Washington, DC, from September 24 to September 26. At Monarch's table display, Dr. Sherman will exhibit the company's Medical Maggots(TM) product (disinfected Phaenicia sericata larvae) and demonstrate this natural therapy to meeting participants.

"In regular use in over 20 countries around the world, it has proven to be a safe and effective treatment. My goal in attending this conference is to educate more health care practitioners about the use of maggot therapy for their diabetic foot ulcer patients."

About 600,000 diabetics get foot ulcers every year nationwide, and traditional medical practices can cost up to $8,000 to treat such wounds, according to reports. Poor blood flow in the lower legs makes those ulcers difficult to heal.

Limb-salvage experts say many of the 80,000-plus amputations of toes, feet and lower legs that diabetics undergo each year in the U.S. are preventable, and that foot amputations alone can cost up to $30,000. Maggot therapy can be used for many types of diabetic foot ulcers. In recently published studies, nearly half of the
