New site..Dupuytren's Learning Channel............

Found this new site...... Dupuytren's Learning Channel

http://www.dupuytrenschannel.com/index.p...ge&Itemid=1

Has a section on Collagenase with video

To get to Collagenase video.........click> CME Webcasts>Treatment Options in Recurrent Contracture>
(scroll to bottom of page)>click here to proceed to case study...........Collagenase starts with video #13

although the whole site has good video's

Did find this in their Welcome statement......."This site is supported by an educational grant from Auxilium Pharmaceuticals.".............so..........there could be some bias towards Collagenase.

But still great info to be found.

Can't get enough information sites, excellent

However, I'd been reading a few sites this evening about the treatment of benign conditions using radiation. I was once again feeling more confident that I really should go down that route but then I read the radiation section on this site and that knocked me back again

I think the Dupuytren Learning Channel is oriented towards classical surgery and collagenase (no surprise with Dr. Hurst on the Board). Still a good source of information but maybe not the experts on radiotherapy.

Something I've never understood in terms of ethics is how the doctors- two MDs and one PhD involved in the first and subsequent collagenase trials can have an unbiased approach when each of the three of them has a relationship with Auxilium. I found the information below online and disclosed because of articles or presentations these doctors have made.


"Lawrence C. Hurst, MD is a product consultant for Auxilium Pharmaceuticals and has received property rights to collagenase for related work at the State University of New York at Stony Brook. "

"Vincent R. Hentz, MD is on an Auxilium Pharmaceuticals advisory committee."

"Marie Badalamente, PhD Stony Brook NY—at least at one time had either stock or stock options of Biospecifics Technologies Corp.stock and is a consultant to- Auxilium "

Dr. Hurst and Dr. Hentz are particpating in the current trials. Another MD participating in the current trials is:

"Edward Akelman, MD. Dr Akelman is on the scientific advisory board for Auxilium Pharmaceuticals, and Biomimetic Therapeutics"

I would hardly call the Dupuytren's Learning Channel unbiased and really wonder about the trials and other docs getting paid to conduct them.
