Dr. Muneeb Shah– TikTok’s Famous “DermDoctor”- Joins CORTINA to Broaden Access to Dermatology Care

Cortina Health

Dr. Muneeb Shah– known widely in social media as “ DermDoctor ” or “ Doctorly ” is the #1 dermatology influencer worldwide. With an ever-increasing number of followers reaching over 20 million across his platforms, Dr. Shah has become a trusted advisor for anyone seeking skincare education and dermatology, by creating content that is as informative as it is entertaining. He is a board-certified dermatologist with a passion for skincare education and improving healthcare access. “DermDoctor” recognizes social media as a powerful tool in bringing healthcare education to millions of people who lack the resources to get it otherwise. Dr. Shah points out that, “There is a real access issue in the United States with healthcare. In certain areas, you cannot see a dermatologist…so there is a massive gap between patients and medical care that needs to be filled. ” It is precisely this gap he seeks to fill, debunking skin-related myths and guiding his online community in their skin and dermatology needs. Furthermore, he emphasizes the importance of board-certified dermatologists in diagnosing and treating skin conditions and the impactful role teledermatology can play in providing access to proper medical care: “When access to an in-person visit is not feasible, many skin conditions can be diagnosed and treated virtually by a dermatologist with proper data. Pairing Cortina’s next-generation technology with its network of board-certified dermatologists is the innovative solution dermatology patients need. That’s why I am proud to be advising Cortina’s team to improve access.” In addition to bringing attention to a seamless solution for diagnosing and treating skin conditions, Dr. Shah is passionate about minimizing misdiagnosis. A common condition that gets overlooked is rosacea as it typically resembles acne or a sunburn. Dr. Shah and Cortina’s first of many educational assets under the medical content advisor role is an informational YouTube video that can be found on Doctorly, discussing key indicators and treatments for both skin conditions in depth. Cortina Health is the only all-inclusive teledermatology platform providing patients with access to board-certified dermatologists who diagnose and prescribe personalized compounded medications which are shipped directly to the patient’s door. Cortina offers convenient, affordable and effective dermatology care to treat the most common skin conditions in all 50 states, no insurance required. Founded by Harvard Medical School Adjunct Professor, Dr. Reid Maclellan, Cortina’s ethos aligns perfectly with Dr. Shah’s vision. “I am thrilled to welcome Dr. Muneeb Shah as our Medical Content Advisor. This is a significant step in our goal to democratize dermatology care. His expertise and reach combined with Cortina’s capabilities and network of board-certified dermatologists, strengthen our commitment to patients seeking dermatology care anytime, anywhere. We are delighted to count Dr. Shah among our leadership as we merge technology, medicine, and high-quality care for all”, states Dr. Maclellan. ABOUT CORTINA At Cortina, we are passionate about personalized medicine and believe everyone deserves access to high-quality, effective treatments to feel good in their own skin.

BioRestorative (NASDAQ: BRTX) Ramps Up Production In Anticipation Of Positive Phase 2 Results

BioRestorative Therapies, Inc.

By Julian Richard, Benzinga Chronic lumbar disc disease (cLDD) is a debilitating condition affecting millions of people worldwide. It is characterized by back pain, stiffness, and restricted movement due to damage to the bony discs in the lower back. While its exact cause is unknown, factors such as age, obesity, poor posture, and overuse of the lumbar spine are believed to be contributing factors. The burden of chronic lumbar disc disease is significant, with the World Health Organization estimating that up to 75% of adults will experience some form of chronic back pain throughout their lifetime. It is also estimated that 10-15% of those affected will have a long-term disability due to their condition. To address the unmet need for an effective and safe way of treating this burdensome condition, BioRestorative Therapies (NASDAQ: BRTX) launched a Phase 2 double-blind, controlled, randomized study of BRTX-100 in 99 American patients. BRTX-100 is an innovative technology that uses the patient’s cells to repair damage to discs in the back. Phasing Into Bigger Future Production? The phase 2 study is evaluating the initial efficacy and safety of a single dose of BRTX-100 compared to saline injected into the affected disk in the spine. Although the primary endpoints will be unblinded after all 99 patients have been treated, a critical milestone for BRTX is scheduled in March or April 2023 related to the safety profile of the product. An independent group of experts will assess the safety data of the first four patients treated in the study. This board of experts decides if a study can continue, if there needs to be changes in the way the study is conducted or if the study should be stopped entirely. BRTX is confident that the data from the study will show that BRTX-100 is safe in treating cLLD. The outcome of the board examination will have a critical impact on its next moves — “Our advances in stem cell biology and delivery protocols harbor great promise in conditioning our bodies’ own regenerative potential to treat major diseases more effectively than current interventions.” In anticipation of positive findings from this study, BRTX is increasing its manufacturing and quality control capacity and hiring new scientists to meet the demands for the BRTX-100 Phase 2 enrollment. The additional demand is expected not only for the phase 2 study in cLLD but for studies in other conditions affecting the neck, knee and hip. Clearing the safety hurdle of the trial enables the Company to expand its BRTX-100 platform into other indications more easily and at a greater pace. Other companies in the stem cell therapy sector of the biotech industry include Sanofi (NASDAQ: SNY), Vertex Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ: VRTX) and BioMarin Pharmaceutical (NASDAQ: BMRN). Visit biorestorative.com for more information on the company and its product candidates. This article was originally published on Benzinga. BioRestorative Therapies was founded by scientists and researchers committed to developing stem cell therapies to address unmet needs in patients with highly prevalent conditions.Our advances in stem cell biology and delivery protocols harbor great promise in conditioning our bodies’ own regenerative potential to treat major diseases more effectively than current interventions.Today, BioRestorative is actively developing programs that aim to dramatically increase quality of care for both (i) chronic back pain caused by disc degeneration, as well as (ii) metabolic disorders including obesity and diabetes.
