NAALT 2018 CONFERENCENorth American Association for Photobiomodulation TherapyThis past week, our V.P. and Medical Director, Dr. Ronald Rubin was invited and honored to speak and introduce The Time Machine Laser at this prestigious conference. The NAALT 2018 conference focus was Photobiomodulation and Drug-Free Management of Pain with the emphasis on treatment of pain and the acceleration of tissue healing.

As been widely reported, President Trump has declared a State of Opioid Emergency. A public health emergency exists, and it is our belief, that laser technology can provide a viable pain treatment solution that is drug-free. The purpose of NAALT is to be a forum for therapeutic light therapy practitioners in North America (Mexico, USA and Canada), as well as many other countries that attended the conference. Its goal is to promote phototherapy as a valid treatment, and to improve understanding of photobiological mechanisms, basic therapeutic light physics, safety, treatment parameters, techniques, regulatory issues and reimbursement. Panels of researchers and clinicians from around the world gathered together to share their research and clinical experience in the effective drug-free management of pain.

Commented Dr. Rubin, “This was an amazing opportunity to introduce our Time Machine Laser device to such leading and esteemed experts including Dr. Michael Hamblin, of the Wellman Center for Photomedicine, a teaching Affiliate of the Harvard Medical School. Dr. Hamblin is widely recognized as the leading expert in low light laser therapy and photobiomodulation. I was delighted to meet colleagues from around the world and I am confident that this conference will lead to many new opportunities for Medifirst and the Time Machine Laser.”

Specialty drugs, often described as prescription drugs that are difficult to manufacture and require special handling or administration, have limited distribution, target a narrow group of chronic diseases, are costly, and require ongoing clinical support, we believe, will drive nearly all the pharmaceutical industry’s market growth from 2015–2020. Industry analysts projects the total pharmaceutical industry to exceed $483 billion in 2020, with specialty pharmaceuticals making up 44% of the revenue. If these projections hold true, specialty drugs will have increased their revenues by over 5X from 2010–2020, growing from just 15% of the market to nearly half in that decade.
