The Facial Pain Research Foundation
Naples Florida Science Meeting
March 5 & 6
On March 5-6, 2015 the Scientific Meeting of the Foundation was held at
a home in Naples. Scientists came from their world-wide laboratories
to report their research progress to the Trustees of The Foundation. This
Meeting had enormous importance to 400,000 trigeminal pain sufferers in
the United States and millions across the globe. This cutting edge
research extends beyond trigeminal neuralgia to those who suffer from all
nerve damage including multiple sclerosis, phantom nerve pain, and those
who experience nerve damage from chemotherapy.
It is very important that this Scientific Meeting be held in a quiet, private,
location away from the main-stream media. The findings must be kept
confidential until the announcements regarding clinical trials and the
intellectual property rights must be protected. Naples has truly been
the ideal location for our Meetings.
