December 2002: FCB Healthcare and Fairman Studios create Endo Laboratory’s new Lidoderm® colateral Postherpetic Neuralgia, a complication of shingles that can be more painful than shingles itself. Currently there is a unique treatment called Lidoderm® (lidocaine patch 5%) — an FDA approved treatment to help relieve the pain of postherpetic neuralgia. Lidoderm® is a soft, pliable patch which is applied directly to the painful area. Lidocaine in the patch penetrates just enough to reach the damaged, painful nerves under the skin without being significantly absorbed into the bloodstream.

March 2002: Cytyc – Ductal LavageFairman Studios is collaborating together with Jespersen and Associates in Boston, MA for Cytyc (formerly Pro-Duct Health). Fairman Studios is producing patient and physician educational materials, including illustration and 2D animation on Ductal Lavage. Lavage is a way to collect cells from inside the milk ducts, where most breast cancers begin. The cells are sent to a laboratory to determine whether they are normal or abnormal. If abnormal cells are found, they indicate an increased risk of breast cancer development.Ductal Lavage is used for:

  1. Assessing Risk for Breast Cancer: Ductal lavage can reveal how the cells inside the breast are behaving. Using an idividuals own cells to learn more about her individual risk level can add to the information provided by general risk factors such as family history.
  2. Ongoing Surveillance: Because ductal lavage can be repeated, cells from particular milk ducts can be checked over time. As a result, it offers high-risk women another tool for ongoing surveillance.
