"It is not hyperbole to write that there are few scientists who have done as much to advance the health of those infected with hepatitis B virus as Dr. Tyrrell,” Dr. Timothy Block, president of the Hepatitis B Foundation at the Pennsylvania Institute for Hepatitis and Virus Research.
Dr. Lorne Tyrrell has helped shape policy in education, health care, and health research. He is the current CIHR/GlaxoSmithKline Chair in Virology at the University of Alberta and the Chief Scientific Officer of KMT, a biotechnology company in Edmonton. Dr. Tyrrell is the Chair of the Board of the Health Quality Council of Alberta, Chair of the Board of the Institute of Health Economics, and a Board Member of the Gairdner Foundation.
Michael Joyce holds a PhD. in Biochemistry From the University of Alberta. Originally a biochemist and enzymologist, Michael Joyce has been working in viral immunology and liver disease for the past 18 years.
His training in structure and function of the key enzyme in the TCA cycle , succinyl-CoA synthetase which has specialized isoforms in liver tissue, left him well prepared to examine the pathology of liver disease. He has played key roles in the development and use of the first small animal model suitable for HCV infection and replication. His studies on oxidative and the unfolded protein response induced by the twin pressures of viral infection and inflammation have led to the current development of an in vitro model for liver disease. In parallel he has examined the innate immune response to HCV and these considerations have led to the discovery that HCV and many other viruses hijack the Nuclear pore complex to their replication complexes in order to evade intracellular innate immune responses.
Further interests include developing a method for differentiating hepatoma cells into hepatocyte–like cells which establish tight junctions, become contact inhibited and preform complex hepatocyte specific tasks like secreting VLDL; the only cell-line which does this. The differentiation process changes the expression of an astonishing 1/3 of the genes. These cells are currently being commercialized for use in liver toxicity and other applications in partnership with commercial interests.
We are honouring Dr. Charles S. Lieber’s lifetime work of study and the advancement of PPC and the treatment of alcoholism (Feb. 13, 1931 to March 1, 2009).
Dr. Lieber devoted much of his career to advancing the understanding of the pathogenesis of alcohol liver disease and, consequently potential therapies to treat this chronic condition. Lieber was born in Antwerp, Belgium, on Feb. 13, 1931. He earned his medical degree in 1955 at the University of Brussels “He was a giant in his field, probably the most eminent in the world in alcohol and the liver,” said Dr. Steven Schenker, another expert, at the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio.
Dr. Lieber was 78 and lived in Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey when he passed away after battling stomach cancer.
Myers Cocktail Oral Therapy emerged from our team's respect for intravenous (IV) nutrient therapy, directly and indirectly, as an alternative treatment to acute and chronic illnesses.
But knowing the power of IV nutrient therapy also meant acknowledging its greatest limitation: The short period of time that the nutrients stay in your system (Cmax and Tmax).
The question became: How do we extended the benefits of IV nutrient therapy without the relying on intravenous injection or clinical administration?
Thus came Myers Cocktail Oral Therapy!
Using the Myers Cocktail formula with the exact same ingredients therapeutically-dosed, our Oral Therapy maintains elevated nutrient serum (blood) concentration over a sustained period of time.
We've found that our Myers Cocktail oral equivalent not only extends the benefits of IV therapy, it also has powerful benefits as a standalone, daily Myers Cocktail drink!
