Dr. Sanders Presented with Best Abstract Award

10/28/2015
 
The 2015 recipient of the AANEM Best Abstract Award is Donald B. Sanders, MD, of Duke University School of Medicine, Durham, North Carolina, for his work entitled, “Results From the Dapper Study: Inpatient Double-Blind
Placebo-Controlled Withdrawal Study of 3,4-Diaminopyridine Base (3,4-Dap) in Subjects With Lambert-Eaton Myasthenic Syndrome (LEMS).”
 
“This award recognizes the work of a team dedicated to bringing to regulatory approval an agent we have been using in the treatment of Lambert-Eaton syndrome for over 25 years,” said Dr. Sanders. “And
it is very special to me personally, as a member of this organization for more than 40 years. The only award more gratifying for me would have been the Young Investigator Award - maybe next year!”

Looking forward to discussing his research at the annual meeting, Sanders noted, “AANEM is the premier organization for neuromuscular diseases, and those who attend this meeting will be most appreciative of the significance of our work.”

The runner-up for Best Abstract is Heather Lindstrom, MD, of Edmonton, Alberta, for her abstract, “Electrodiagnostic Studies: Do They Make a Difference?”.
