Date:6/20/2008

International Headache Society and The National Headache Foundation. Dr. Goldstein is a Board Certified Neurologist, a Fellow of the American Academy of Neurology, and has special qualification for the treatment of headache from the National Headache Foundation. He has received many industry awards, published articles in industry journals and served on advisory boards related to the development of a wide range of headache therapies.

-- Alan J. Tuchman, M.D., Clinical Professor of Neurology and Pharmacology at New York Medical College, Principal of a neuroscience-focused consulting firm and a board-certified neurologist

Dr. Tuchman will present information about glutamate receptors in the spinal cord as a target for muscle spasticity. He has served as Vice Chairman of the Department of Neurology at New York Medical College as well as Vice Dean of Clinical Affairs, which involved the development and management of clinical care and medical education policy for 29 affiliated hospitals. In addition, he was President of the Epilepsy Society of Southern New York. Dr. Tuchman is a frequent speaker about neuroscience topics at academic meetings.

"As the American Headache Society prepares to kick off its 50th Annual Scientific Meeting, we want to provide patients as well as the medical community with industry experts' perspectives as to what is clearly a promising approach for the treatment of migraine and other conditions."
