FREDERICK, Md., May 28 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- BioElectronics Corp. (Pink Sheets: BIEL), the maker of the ActiPatch(TM), a drug free anti- inflammatory patch, with an embedded battery operated microchip delivering continuous pulse therapy specifically designed to speed healing, today announced world renowned plastic surgeon David G. Genecov will develop, institute and complete research studies on post-operative management of breast augmentation and cesarean section procedures. Both double blind randomized studies will be done in conjunction with other leading surgeons, obstetricians and gynecologists under Dr. Genecov's direction and supervision.
"We are very excited about these studies and believe they mark an important turning point for BioElectronics Corporation. The use of our products for post-breast augmentation care is already well established and continues to grow at a rapid pace," commented, Andy Whelan, CEO and President of BioElectronics Corporation. "The completion of a formal study by a surgeon of Dr. Genecov's caliber will further cement our position in this important and growing area. We are also very excited to be starting the trial for post- operative care for cesarean section. According to the National Center for Health Statistics, approximately one third of all babies in the United States are delivered by cesarean section up from less than approximately 20% just a decade ago. We believe this growing market represents a substantial market opportunity for our company."
Dr. David G. Genecov added, "Many general and plastic surgeons are starting to investigate the use of ActiPatch for post-surgical edema and pain control, but there has been little clinical data. We look forward to providing this important data to our colleagues over the coming months in order to determine the best post-operative procedures to assist patients in pain management and recovery."
