TJU Announces PRP Center of Excellence


From the Editor…

In an open letter to the PRP Community, Drs. Uitto, Keller and Ross announced the establishment of the nation’s first PRP Center of Excellence, located at Sidney Kimmel Medical College at Thomas Jefferson University Philadelphia, PA. What does this mean to the PRP community? We have asked questions based on the comments from the PRP community and will update accordingly.

“It is with great pleasure that we write to you to announce the first PRP Center of Excellence at the Department of Dermatology & Cutaneous Biology of Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia, PA. This Clinic seamlessly integrates laboratory and clinical sciences to improve patient care and research to advance our understanding of this devastating disease.”

 Will there be more that one PRP Center of Excellence at TJU?

 Is the Center of Excellence a clinic or more than a clinic?

 What is the difference between laboratory sciences and clinical sciences?

“At the PRP Center of Excellence, each patient will have a personalized consultation to review the prior diagnoses, biopsies and treatments with the world’s leading clinical dermatologists, dermatopathologists and basic science researchers in the field of dermatology. Your appointment will include whole body photography to document one’s progress during care, interdisciplinary review of diagnostic data (biopsy and other tests), and access to direct enrollment into clinical research.”

 How much time is allotted for the “personalized consultation”?

“Together with one of our clinical dermatologists, treatment decisions at the PRP Center of Excellence will be based on evidence-based algorithms that draw from research and expert opinions of a variety of medical disciplines to provide you with the greatest chance of successfully and safely treating your PRP.”

✽  How will the PRP Center of Excellence facilitate access to pharmaceuticals that have yet to be approved for PRP by the Federal Drug Administration?

In addition, at Thomas Jefferson University, patients have access to the largest network of tertiary referral center services in the region. This is particularly important because PRP is often accompanied by other diagnoses that can affect quality of life, one’s health and treatment decisions. It is this attention to the whole body that will allow you to heal. Specifically, patients can obtain appointments with therapists, psychologists and psychiatrists within the same building as the Dermatology Clinic to seek care for the depression and anxiety that can often accompany PRP. Patients will also be able to make appointments with Will’s Eye Hospital at Thomas Jefferson University for specialized ophthalmology care as the incidence of damaging conditions of the eye, such as ectropion (outward turning of the eyelid) and keratoco unctivitis (severely dry, pain lly irritated eyes), is increased in PRP. In addition, patients can schedule appointments with other nationally recognized fields such as Jefferson cardiology, endocrinology, gastroenterology, hematology, neurology, oncology, nutrition and integrative medicine to manage any accompanying health concerns.

✽  As a matter of official treatment protocol, will the PRP Center of Excellence refer PRP patients to the following PRP support resources:

▸  National Organization of Rare Disorders: PRP Report
▸  Genetic and Rare Diseases Information Center: PRP Report
▸  PRP Alliance, Inc.
 PRP Survival Guide
▸  PRP Facebook Support Group
▸  PRP Community on RareConnect

The PRP Center of Excellence marks another achievement of the PRP Community in advancing access, quality and value of care. We look forward to continuing to serve the Community and hope to see you soon! To schedule your consultation with Drs. Keller and Ross, please call (215) 955-9295.

✽  Is there an expectation that PRP patients beyond Southeaster Pennsylvania, e.g., New York, New Jersey, Maryland and Delaware will access the resources of the PRP Center of Excellence?

✽  Is there an opportunity for a Second Opinion regarding diagnosis and treatment?

✽  Will other healthcare professionals be able to “consult” with the PRP Center of Excellence?

Sincerely,

Jouni Uitto, MD, PhD, Professor and Chair
Matthew Keller, MD, Associate Professor
Nicholas Ross, MD, Resident-Physician

I also possess the belief that one of the best ways to keep your laptop in leading condition is by using a hard plastic-type material case, or shell, that will fit over the top of your computer. These types of protective gear are usually model specific since they are made to fit perfectly across the natural outer shell. You can buy them directly from the owner, or via third party places if they are intended for your mobile computer, however not all laptop will have a spend on the market. All over again, thanks for your guidelines.

  9. What I have seen in terms of laptop or computer memory is that there are specifications such as SDRAM, DDR and so on, that must fit in with the specifications of the motherboard. If the pc’s motherboard is very current while there are no main system issues, improving the memory space literally takes under an hour. It’s one of many easiest pc upgrade processes one can think about. Thanks for revealing your ideas.

  10. I have mastered some new items from your web page about pc’s. Another thing I’ve always thought is that computers have become an item that each house must have for a lot of reasons. They supply you with convenient ways in which to organize households, pay bills, search for information, study, listen to music and also watch television shows. An innovative approach to complete these tasks is to use a notebook computer. These computers are mobile ones, small, potent and lightweight.

  11. Thanks for helping me to achieve new suggestions about computers. I also have the belief that certain of the best ways to keep your laptop in leading condition is by using a hard plastic-type case, or perhaps shell, that matches over the top of one’s computer. These kind of protective gear will be model distinct since they are made to fit perfectly in the natural housing. You can buy them directly from the owner, or via third party sources if they are for your laptop, however don’t assume all laptop could have a cover on the market. Yet again, thanks for your suggestions.

  12. I have learned some new elements from your internet site about computers. Another thing I have always thought is that computer systems have become a product that each house must have for some reasons. They provide convenient ways to organize households, pay bills, shop, study, tune in to music and also watch television shows. An innovative technique to complete many of these tasks is to use a notebook. These personal computers are portable ones, small, highly effective and lightweight.

  13. Thanks for your write-up. I also feel that laptop computers have grown to be more and more popular currently, and now are usually the only sort of computer utilised in a household. This is because at the same time actually becoming more and more affordable, their working power is growing to the point where there’re as effective as desktop coming from just a few years ago.

  14. A few things i have observed in terms of computer system memory is the fact that there are technical specs such as SDRAM, DDR and so forth, that must fit in with the specific features of the mother board. If the computer’s motherboard is fairly current while there are no computer OS issues, updating the memory space literally normally takes under a couple of hours. It’s on the list of easiest computer upgrade techniques one can imagine. Thanks for expressing your ideas.

  15. Thanks for the ideas you have discussed here. Something else I would like to state is that laptop memory needs generally go up along with other advances in the technological know-how. For instance, any time new generations of cpus are made in the market, there is usually a similar increase in the shape demands of all computer memory plus hard drive space. This is because the software operated by simply these processor chips will inevitably surge in power to leverage the new technological know-how.

  17. I have seen many useful points on your internet site about desktops. However, I have the judgment that netbooks are still not quite powerful sufficiently to be a sensible choice if you typically do projects that require plenty of power, such as video touch-ups. But for net surfing, microsoft word processing, and a lot other common computer functions they are fine, provided you don’t mind small screen size. Thank you sharing your notions.

  19. Thanks for sharing your ideas in this article. The other thing is that when a problem takes place with a pc motherboard, people should not have some risk connected with repairing that themselves because if it is not done right it can lead to permanent damage to the complete laptop. It is usually safe just to approach a dealer of a laptop for the repair of that motherboard. They’ve already technicians who have an skills in dealing with laptop computer motherboard troubles and can get the right analysis and conduct repairs.

  21. I have learned newer and more effective things through your website. One other thing I would really like to say is the fact that newer computer system os’s have a tendency to allow extra memory to be played with, but they as well demand more memory space simply to function. If someone’s computer is unable to handle additional memory and also the newest program requires that memory increase, it usually is the time to shop for a new PC. Thanks

  22. Thanks for the tips you have shared here. Something important I would like to express is that pc memory specifications generally rise along with other advancements in the know-how. For instance, if new generations of cpus are brought to the market, there is usually a related increase in the scale demands of all pc memory and also hard drive room. This is because software program operated by means of these processors will inevitably boost in power to make new technologies.
