When it becomes necessary to defend or enforce a legal right between two opposing parties, the procedure involved is known as litigation. Often times litigation can be settled by agreement between the parties involved, but in many instances, the issue can be decided by a judge or jury. At the time that an individual or individuals decide to defend or enforce their legal rights, the litigation process begins, usually with the hiring of an attorney. For the litigation to be successful, detailed investigation into the matter must be conducted by the attorneys of all parties involved to determine if there is enough evidence for a lawsuit to be filed. This may require document research, finding witnesses, and collecting statements from witnesses.
The education of a litigation attorney can be extensive. The individual must first earn a bachelor’s degree from an accredited college or university. Although a specific major isn’t required, common majors for pre-law can include criminal justice, history, political science, and English. To be admitted into Law School, the student must take and pass the Law School Admissions Test. A full time student can expect to spend at least three years in study.
One such attorney in the Philadelphia area is Mr. Karl Heideck. Mr Heideck received his Bachelor’s Degree of Arts degree in English and Literature from Swarthmore College and graduated with Honors from the Temple University School of Law. His areas of expertise cover Legal Writing, Employment Law, Civil Litigation, Corporate Law, Legal Research, Commercial Litigation, and Intellectual Property Law.
Karl Heideck began his career as an associate at Conrad O’Brien where he worked in commercial litigation. He also worked as a property attorney at Pepper Hamilton LLP where he reviewed and analyzed government documents. Mr. Heideck also has extensive experience working in bankruptcy and white collar defense.
The results of a recent clinical trial show that transplanting a person’s own stem cells back into them, after high-dose immunosuppressive therapy, can cause long-term remission of multiple sclerosis. Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a disease in which the nervous system is attacked by the immune system. In the study 69% of the patients had lived for 5 years with no remission of MS symptoms, brain lesions or progression of the disease. The patients had not been given any multiple sclerosis medicines during this time.
The clinical trial was funded by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases. The three year results were published in 2014 and the five year results were published this month.
The findings of the trials suggest that this treatment is more effective than other MS medicines have shown to be. The next step will be to develop a larger trial to directly compare this treatment path to other MS medicines.
The symptoms experienced by people suffering from MS can include fatigue, chronic pain, weakness and motor and speech difficulties. Over time the symptoms can get progressively worse as the disease develops.
The clinical trial used volunteer sufferers of multiple sclerosis from the ages of 26 to 52 years old. These patients had been taking available MS drugs but were still experiencing a worsening in their conditions.
A doctor that has extensive experience in handling patients with MS is Dr. Shiva Gopal Vasishta. Dr. Shiva Gopal Vasishta earned his degree in medicine and psychiatry in 1979 from the Government Medical College in India. His residency was performed at Boston City Hospital.
Dr. Shiva Gopal Vasishta has a practice at Eastern Neurodiagnostic Associates where he treats patients with brain disorders, including multiple sclerosis. In order to help his older patients, Dr. Shiva Gopal Vasishta does accept Medicare.
