PUYALLUP, Wash., Nov. 29, 2006 - Alexander Schauss, Ph.D., FACN, will discuss research surrounding a high-metabolite immunogen at the 14th Annual International Congress on Anti-Aging Medicine and Regenerative Biomedical Technologies. This high-metabolite ingredient is produced by fermentation technology and shows exceptional nutritional and phytochemical composition and a range of immune system-related bioactivities. Dr. Schauss's presentation, "Discovery, Mode of Action, Safety and Potential Health Benefits of Novel High-Metabolite Immunogens," will take place on Friday, Dec. 8 from 3:50 – 4:20 p.m. at the Venetian Hotel and Conference Center in Las Vegas. The high- metabolite immunogen studied in Dr. Schauss's research, EpiCor(R), is manufactured by Embria(R) Health Sciences, Cedar Rapids, Iowa.
"Attendees will hear about the ingredient's surprising history as well as its self-affirmed GRAS status and strong safety data that qualifies it to be used as a food additive to support innate immunity," said Dr. Schauss. "The potential immune health benefits and anti-inflammatory effects of this high-metabolite immunogen are of particular interest to the A4M audience, as the world’s population faces additional health issues as it ages."
Alexander G. Schauss, Ph.D., FACN, is senior director of natural and medicinal products research for AIBMR Life Sciences, Inc., www.aibmr.com, in Puyallup, Wash., where he has been the lead scientist for 27 years.

(IBIDS) database maintained through an interagency partnership with the Food and Nutrition Information Center, National Agricultural Library, NIH Office of Dietary Supplements and the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA). Dr. Schauss has studied nutrition and botanical medicine for more than 30 years and has been recognized by the American College for the Advancement of Medicine for his contributions to the medical sciences with the 2005 Linus Pauling Lecture Award. He has been the author/co-author of more than 125 scientific papers in a diverse range of journals, and recently completed his sixteenth book on the discovery of the richest antioxidant of any fruit or vegetable in the world. Dr. Schauss earned his undergraduate, graduate and doctoral degrees at the University of New Mexico at Albuquerque and California Coast University in Santa Ana, respectively.
The American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine's (A4M) International Congress on Anti-Aging Medicine and Regenerative Biomedical Technologies is the largest and most influential academic and industry event worldwide in the space of preventative medicine and bio-medical technologies. A4M, which began its mission in 1993 with just 12 physicians, has now grown into a worldwide international medical society with representation in over 70 countries. The Academy has trained more than 30,000 new physicians in its hands-on scientific, clinical and academic programs, and today influences more than 100,000 health professionals via its educational training programs, seminars, board certification programs, videos, website, textbooks, and outreach programs.
