Efficacy and safety of Nutramax Labs’ Cosamin DS joint health supplement vetted in clinical trials
EDGEWOOD, Md. — In an international head-to-head study, researchers found that the dietary supplement Cosamin DS and the Brazilian prescription glucosamine/chondroitin brand are equally effective, with statistically significant results achieved.
Nutramax Labs' Cosamin DS was chosen as the comparator in a human clinical study recently published by Provenza et al. in the peer-reviewed journal Clinical Rheumatology, the company reported Wednesday.
“The authors make a point to stress ‘there are concerns on the purity of glucosamine/chondroitin preparations sold as dietary supplements,’” said Robert Henderson, chairman of Nutramax. “Cosamin DS, since its inception, has been the gold standard when it comes to quality.”
"My father, Dr. Robert Henderson, developed, patented and brought to the market the first glucosamine hydrochloride, chondroitin sulfate joint health product, Cosamin,” Troy Henderson, president and CEO of Nutramax Laboratories Consumer Care, said. “It remains a high-quality, trusted brand backed by clinical studies."
“For over two decades, we have taken pride in knowing our Cosamin brand contains quality ingredients with formulations rooted in rigorous and sound science,” said Brian Cornblatt, medical director and director of product development for Nutramax Laboratories Consumer Care. “Here we have a truly impressive study, with more than 900 participants recruited from 16 different sites. We work tirelessly to offer the public a brand they can trust and it was nice to see Cosamin’s efficacy again substantiated in this study.”
Report: Ohio governor’s office forced out Ohio State Board of Pharmacy’s executive director
COLUMBUS, Ohio — The Ohio governor's office pushed for the firing of the executive director of the Ohio State Board of Pharmacy, according to a report released by the Associated Press Tuesday, citing a timeline created by former board executive director Kyle Parker. According to the report, the executive director was not aggressive enough in combating prescription-drug abuse.
"Ohio is in an all-out war with opiates and pill mills, and the executive director was sitting on his hands," Rob Nichols, spokesman for the Ohio governor's office said, according to the report. "It was either indifference or tone deafness, or he was being an obstructionist, but either way, we wanted to move the board in a new direction."
In August, the Ohio State Board of Pharmacy announced that Parker would step down on Sept. 1 to pursue other interests. The board appointed Eric Griffin, compliance and enforcement supervisor, as the interim executive director.
