Drs. Myron and Elaine Jacobson Receive the Innovator in Dermatology Award
NEW YORK, Dec. 5, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Drs. Myron and Elaine Jacobson, Principal Scientists for NIA 24(Ã‚®) and biochemists at the University of Arizona, were recognized at the 2011 Cosmetic Surgery Forum with the “Innovator in Dermatology” award which honors leaders in the field who have made a significant contribution to the dermatology world. Drs. Myron and Elaine Jacobson, a husband and wife team, have dedicated their professional careers to researching cellular DNA damage in the formation of skin cancer. In their quest to find a cure, they’ve spent over 30 years working on DNA repair which led to the development of Pro-Niacin(Ã‚®), a multi-patented, proprietary niacin technology found in the NIA 24 skin care collection.
According to Dr. Joel Schlessinger, board-certified dermatologist and cosmetic surgeon, course director of Cosmetic Surgery Forum and president of LovelySkin.com, “The ‘Innovator in Dermatology’ award is perfectly suited for Drs. Myron and Elaine Jacobson, who are not only innovators in dermatology but also continue to stretch the knowledge base of niacin and its components. This expands the reach of their work uniting dermatology with other fields.”
NIA 24 was born from science. It was developed with funding from the National Institutes of Health and clinically researched at the University of Arizona Cancer Center. NIA 24‘s revolutionary, multi-patented Pro-Niacin molecule penetrates deep within the skin to repair UV-induced DNA damage, improve energy generation, normalize melanin transfer and stimulate the release of Leptin – a natural repair hormone that activates the skin’s natural wound-healing response.
In doing so, it provides a stronger skin barrier with more even tone and texture, improvement in firmness and an increased immunity to future damage.
With 57 global patents, over 14 clinical studies involving 600 subjects and an award from the American Academy of Dermatology, it is so effective, it has been chosen by the National Cancer Institute for development as a potential skin cancer prevention agent.
