ReachMD Broadcasts First-of-its-Kind Physician Peer-Peer Discussion on ENHANCE Trial
Date:2/4/2008

Renowned cardiologists participate in controversial debate over effects of

Simvastatin vs. Ezetimibe/Simvastatin

CHICAGO, Feb. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- ReachMD, an innovative multi-channel platform for medical professionals, will air on XM Satellite Radio Channel 157 and simulcast via ReachMD Online at http://www.reachmd.com, a candid medical discussion on the much talked-about ENHANCE (Effect of Combination Ezetimibe and High-Dose Simvastatin vs. Simvastatin Alone on the Atherosclerotic Process in Patients with Heterozygous Familial Hypercholesterolemia) Trial. Two of the nation's leading experts in Cardiology will share their insights over the only national broadcast network, created specifically for medical professionals.

Moderated by Dr. Matthew Sorrentino, associate professor of medicine at University of Chicago, this ReachMD Special Report will feature Dr. Steven Nissen, chairman of cardiology at the Cleveland Clinic, and Dr. Roger Blumenthal, head of preventive cardiology at Johns Hopkins University, who will for the first time openly debate among peers what this controversy means to the practicing physician and their patients.

The ENHANCE trial is a multinational, randomized, double-blind, trial that examines the effects of the highest approved dose of VYTORIN/INEGY versus the highest approved dose of simvastatin 80 mg alone in patients with Heterozygous Familial Hypercholesterolemia (HeFH). The study was made public by Merck/Schering-Plough Pharmaceuticals.

"The debate around the clinical study on cholesterol drugs has received heavy exposure in a short amount of time," said Gary Epstein, CEO of ReachMD. "However, there hasn't been a true, peer-to-peer discussion between the leading cardiologists in this type of setting. Our Special Report offers physicians an innovative platform to hear from medical experts in an environment created specifically for medical professionals."

The ReachMD Special Report will be easily accessible to a broad medical community through multiple channels throughout the day:

-- Online Simulcast - http://www.reachmd.com, beginning at 1:30 p.m. EST
