Oral Presentation: Monday, Oct 20, 8:00 AM – 8:12 AM
Author Insight from Ron Schey, MD., FACG, Temple University
What’s new here and important for clinicians?
This is the first study to demonstrate that Dronabinol (cannabinoid drug) is effective in non-cardiac chest pain.
What do patients need to know?
That there is hope for many of the patients who do not respond to current treatment, and that a 4 week treatment DID not demonstrate any major side effects.
