Houston Support Group Meeting

May 18 @ 1:00 PM - 2:30 PM

 This month we have two presentation topics and discussions!
Topic: Hereditary ATTR (hATTR) Amyloidosis Educational Program
Speaker: Nicolette Woods, RN and Patient Education Liaison, Alnylam Pharmaceuticals, Inc.
Nicolette has been a Registered Nurse for 20 years, including 14 years as a pharmaceutical nurse educator. As a Patient Education Liaison for Alnylam Pharmaceuticals, she helps educate and bring awareness about Hereditary ATTR (hATTR) amyloidosis in the community which is a rare form of peripheral neuropathy that often does undiagnosed. Nicolle will answer questions about hATTR and provide valuable resources to help you and your family learn more about the condition. Refreshments will be provided.


Topic: NoxyPure (Nanobubble) Research Study
Speaker: Jean Woloszko, MD, PhD, PeriphEX
At the April meetings in Georgetown and at Austin West, members and clients learned about a new technology being developed right here in Austin Texas to possibly alleviate some neuropathy symptoms. This new technology, called NoxyPure, utilizes nanobubbles, which are extremely small (50-200 nanometers) bubbles of gas suspended in water and invisible to the naked eye.  NoxyPure contains nanobubbles of Oxygen and Carbon dioxide and is easy to use.  NoxyPure explains that, “Oxygen is critical for cellular respiration.  Carbon dioxide enhances the ability of blood vessels to deliver oxygen to tissue by increasing the local blood flow and by enhancing oxygen release from the hemoglobin contained in the red blood cells.”

PeriphEX (the makers of NoxyPure) is conducting a study on the use of nanobubbles for the relief of neuropathy symptoms.  To find out if you qualify to participate in the study and/or to receive more information, please visit their website https://periphex.com or email at info@periphex.com

NATX does not endorse nor support the use of this product or any other treatment.  If in doubt, please check with your physician. Anyone affected by neuropathy is welcome: patients, caregivers, family and friends. We hope to see you there!

Location: Memorial Drive United Methodist Church (address and map below)

Anyone affected by neuropathy is welcome: patients, caregivers, family and friends. We hope to see you there! Please park in the South Parking Lot and enter the South East Entrance.
