Swiss Medica's (OTCBB:SWME) President Grant Johnson also spoke and presented the FDA panelists with summaries of three European medical studies, a U.S.-based open trial, and a recently concluded Canadian randomized double-blind clinical trial, using the O24(tm) Essential Oil Pain Neutralizer. Dr. Fields announced to the medical and scientific panelists that his "Patients have been using less of the aforementioned drugs and saving money in the process. No serious adverse effects, such as GI bleed, hypertension or cardiovascular problems have ever been reported." Dr. Fields advised the panel members, "There is no interference with other medications that are necessary to maintain the patient's health."
