Missouri Medical Law Report: Lawyers, Doctors Team Up Over ‘Experimental’ Care

Richard McCallum and Irene Sarosiek at the University of Kansas Medical Center.
...
McCallum, a board-certified gastroenterologist, is the director of the center for the gastrointestinal nerve and muscle function at KUMC.
...
McCallum led a double-blind, placebo controlled study which led the FDA to approve the gastric stimulator device made by Medtronic in 2000 for humanitarian reasons.
...
Informing Coventry that the stimulator "has become a generally accepted treatment among practicing physicians for whom all other therapy has failed," McCallum and Sarosiek also included research abstracts with the request.
...
The abstract cited two articles, both written by McCallum, the head of KUMC's program.
...
"Coventry put no evidence before the Court which would indicate that the gastric stimulator implantation was experimental or investigational, indeed the only evidence presented was from Dr. McCallum who stated to a reasonable degree of medical certainty that procedure is not experimental or investigational.
"Additionally, even though Dr. McCallum is conducting additional clinical trials on the device and procedure to maximize its efficacy, this does not mean that the procedure is experimental.It only means that Dr. McCallum is trying to make it better," Roldan said.
...
Dr. McCallum testified "to a reasonable degree of medical certainty" that the procedure isn't experimental and that Moses is an ideal candidate.
...
"Dr. McCallum testified that devices are not classified according [to] the Phase I, II or III classifications within the FDA," Roldan said.
...
"Dr. McCallum testified to a reasonable degree of medical certainty that this procedure is the standard treatment for patients with gastroparesis similar to [the insured] who have failed all other therapies and treatments that are available."

Dr. Richard McCallum, a professor of medicine and chairman of gastroenterology at Kansas University Medical Center, says that diabetics make up about two-thirds of the people using these pacemakers.
And their response to the technique speaks for its success, he says.
"If you talk to these patients, they'll tell you it's the best thing that's happened to them in their life in terms of treating their gastric emptying disorder," McCallum says."They'll have better diabetic control, and their days in the hospital are drastically reduced."
The technique is being offered by just a few medical centers around the country, he says, with about 100 people implanted with them so far.

"This careful study shows that diabetic gastroparesis is indeed a relatively common problem and one that is definitely under-recognized and perhaps underappreciated in the U.S.," said Richard W. McCallum, MD, Professor and Founding Chairman of the Department of Internal Medicine, Texas Tech University.

"Treatment options for this patient group are severely limited," said Richard McCallum, MD, professor and founding chair of the division of gastroenterology, department of medicine, Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center.
...
Dr. McCallum worked with fellow Texas Tech professor Irene Sarosiek, MD, senior author of this project, to analyze results of a four-week period of use of the device.
...
"These exciting initial results have great potential for patients," Dr. McCallum said.
...
Dr. McCallum will present data from the study "Self-Administered Needleless Acupuncture Therapy to Control Dyspepsia and GERD Symptoms in Patients Diagnosed with Diabetic Gastroparesis," abstract 749, on Monday, May 20, at 3 p.m. in room 102AB of the Orange County Convention Center.

Sun and Dr. Richard McCallum were in Philadelphia last week presenting their work called "Central and Peripheral Effects of Transcutaneous Acupuncuture Therapy for Nausea in Patients With Diabetic Gastroparesis" to more than 10,000 gastroenterologists from around the world at the annual meeting of the American College of Gastroenterology.
...
"We turned up the current so the patient feels tingling or vibration in their fingers," said McCallum, professor and chairman of the Department of Internal Medicine at TTUHSC.
...
"One theory is the waves send a message up the nerves that eventually go to the brain and turn off the nausea and vomiting control centers in your brain," McCallum said.
"The other theory is when the study patients were taking the needle-less treatment, it augmented the function of the vagus nerve, which is a very crucial nerve in the gut that plays a major role in stimulating secretion of acid, motility of the stomach and movement," he said.
...
"It's not one size fits all where you put the band on and good luck," said McCallum, who specializes in gastroenterology.

McCallum said this device would benefit patients with diabetes and gastroptosis.
"Probably a third of our patients and half of all patients in the world who have a paralyzed or slow stomach have underlying diabetes," he said. "This has been a very big focus of ours because the brain and the gut are intimately connected in every way from pain, nausea to control of bowel habits."
He said this treatment would not be available to patients for a few more years while more studies are being done.
"The proof of concept is there that you can treat nausea with this device," he said.
