Heart Doc Discusses Pantesin® at SupplySide

LAS VEGASJohn Rumberger, M.D., Ph.D., FACC, will discuss Pantesin®, a high-absorbable and biologically active form of vitamin B5, and its role in heart health in a presentation at SupplySide West, held Oct.10 to 14 at the Venetian Sands & Expo in Las Vegas. Pantesin works at the cellular level, enhancing enzyme and metabolic activity to help maintain balanced cholesterol levels, according to Kyowa Hakko USA, which manufactures the ingredient.

The presentation from Dr. Rumberger, who is the director of cardiac imaging at the Princeton Longevity Center, will highlight results of a 16-week study focused on individuals with low to moderate risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD). The study showed those supplementing with Pantesin experienced significantly lowered levels of low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol.  Results are especially noteworthy as prior studies have shown that each 1 mg/DL reduction in LDL cholesterol lowers cardiovascular disease risk by 1 percent.

The presentation, titled "Pantesin Significantly Lowers Cardiovascular Disease Markers in North American Subjects: A Triple Blind Placebo/Diet Controlled Study," will be held Thursday, Oct. 13 from 10 to 10:50 a.m. in the Lido room 3005.

Dr. Rumberger will also be on hand at Kyowa Hakko USA's booth #16035 throughout the show to answer questions. Dr. Rumberger has been professor of medicine and consultant in the department of cardiovascular diseases at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN. It was during this time that his reputation as a leader in the development and application of computed tomography (EBT) of the heart was established. During his more than 20-year career as a clinician, educator and researcher, Dr. Rumberger has published nearly 500 scientific papers and book chapters. He has lectured worldwide on EBT, early disease diagnosis and wellness. He is an established investigator of the American Heart Association and a founding member of the International Society of Atherosclerosis Imaging. Dr. Rumberger is an active reviewer for the Journal of the American Medical Association and Archives of Internal Medicine, publications of both the American Heart Association and American College of Cardiology, as well as the New England Journal of Medicine.
