Date:3/17/2009

Complimentary Continuing Education Lecture for Healthcare Professionals

VOORHEES, N.J., March 17 /PRNewswire/ -- Hereditary angioedema (HAE) is estimated to afflict 10,000 people in the United States each year. Patients with HAE suffer from recurrent attacks of intense localized edema involving the skin, airway, and visceral organs. Left untreated, most patients will suffer at least one acute attack per month. Chronic therapy with attenuated androgens or plasmin inhibitors has been the mainstay of therapy. However, many new therapies are on the horizon, offering hope to thousands who suffer from this debilitating disease.

To address the need for current education on HAE, Robert Michael Educational Institute LLC (RMEI) and Postgraduate Institute for Medicine (PIM) are jointly sponsoring complimentary continuing education lectures at institutions across the United States. This continuing education activity, titled Changing Paradigms in Hereditary Angioedema: A Focus on Prompt Diagnosis and New Therapies, is supported by an educational grant from ViroPharma Incorporated and is accredited for physicians, nurses, and pharmacists.

The faculty for these lectures comprises experts in immunology and HAE from leading medical institutions. The chairperson is Bruce L. Zuraw, MD, Professor of Medicine and Chief of the Section of Allergy and Immunology at the University of California School of Medicine in San Diego, CA.

Healthcare professionals can visit www.RMEI.com, e-mail HAELectures@RMEI.com, or phone toll-free (877) 547-5642 to schedule a lecture at their institution.

"Quality continuing education is vital to developing and increasing knowledge and skills and enhancing patient care," says Robert Michael Educational Institute LLC President and CEO, Robert M. Colleluori.

RMEI is a medical education company that specializes in independent, accredited and non-accredited education. The goal of all accredited RMEI educational offerings is to promote a spirit of lifelong learning and continuous professional development. RMEI works closely with medical experts to design activities that improve diagnosis and treatment.
