Cold Comfort Canada Ltd., the exclusive importer and distributor of Paxman Scalp Coolers in Canada is excited to announce that Paxman(UK) will be attending and exhibiting Paxman Scalp Cooling equipment to members of ICCN.

Scalp Cooling is revolutionary technology that allows cancer patients to keep their hair during chemotherapy. Patients no longer have to suffer the most obvious and distressing side effect of cancer treatment.

World-renowned researchers in Scalp Cooling and Cancer Care, Dr. Corina van den Hurk from the Netherlands and Annie Young from the UK will be presenting posters on their recent scalp cooling research at the Conference. Paxman Coolers is hosting a lunchtime symposium on Saturday July 11, 2015 from 12:20 to 1:20 p.m. in the Bayshore C Ballroom.

Speaking about the research which is being undertaken on scalp cooling to treat chemotherapy- induced alopecia and how important this is to patients, Richard Paxman, CEO of Paxman, said: "Hair loss is a highly distressing side effect of chemotherapy and Scalp Cooling remains the only treatment for chemotherapy-induced alopecia. We are delighted with the results of the research and every day we hear personal stories from patients and their families about the positive results of scalp cooling, so it is great to see clinical evidence to back this up. This thereby proves that the treatment is worthwhile and should be supported by hospitals and medical professionals."

Patients in 30 countries, including Canada, have had the opportunity to use the Paxman Scalp Cooling technology and have experienced chemotherapy without the obvious signs of treatment, allowing patients to keep their anonymity and dignity when going through treatment.
