Seikagaku Provides Back Health Education at Rock N' Roll Chicago Marathon Series Health & Fitness Expo

CHICAGO, July 18, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Seikagaku Corporation, a Japanese pharmaceutical and medical device company focused on providing innovative drug discovery specializing in glycoscience, will be featured at the Health & Fitness Expo during the Rock N' Roll Chicago Marathon Series on July 19­–20, 2019. 

Over 1,600 runners and 25,000 community supporters will gather at McCormick Place on Friday and Saturday for an immersive health experience. The purpose of the Health & Fitness Expo is to feature top health and athletic companies who are dedicated to providing the latest running technology, as well as health and nutrition information. The Expo will bring together companies to help deliver creative solutions to improve the overall experience for athletes.

The two-day health expo provides a dynamic, high energy, yet intimate experience for those who are interested in living an active lifestyle and who are proactive in discovering health solutions. 

Seikagaku will offer athletes along with their friends and family the opportunity to learn about improving their health and how to manage lower back and leg pain. Many athletes who suffer from back and leg pain are unaware of the source of their pain. Millions of Americans are affected by sciatica or leg pain from a herniated lumbar disc and often resort to common treatments that contain steroids or opioids.

Seikagaku will provide educational materials that may help explain the pain and provide the option to be pre-screened to participate in a clinical trial for a new non-invasive, non-surgical option. A non-steriodal, non-opioidal investigational study medication, already approved for use in Japan [Hernicore®], for those with sciatica or leg pain from a herniated lumbar disc is now being evaluated in a clinical research study in the United States, The Discovery 6603 Study. For more information about the Discovery 6603 Study and to see if you or someone you love may qualify, please call 877-770-1411 or visit
