Alexander Zemtsov MD, M.Sc., FAAD Bibliography
graduated Magna Cum Laude from Temple University in Philadelphia majoring
in chemistry. He then persuaded his training as a chemist at Ivy League
University of Pennsylvania where he received M.Sc. degree in Chemistry.
After deciding to become a physician/medical scientist, Dr. Zemtsov
was accepted at prestigious New York University School of Medicine from
where he received a MD degree with scientific honors. Dr. Zemtsov completed
his dermatology residency program and became board certified at the
world famous Cleveland Clinic. After residency, Professor Zemtsov became
a full time faculty member in the Departments of Dermatology and Biochemistry
at Texas Tech University School of Medicine.
At Texas Tech
Dr. Zemtsov became intrigued with emu oil's unique properties. The American
Emu Association [AEA] provided Dr. Zemtsov with grant money to conduct
unbiased scientific research on emu oil skin properties. The results
of this study were published in peer reviewed dermatology Journal. This
was the FIRST PUBLICATION EVER dealing with emu oil in a medical or
scientific Journal. Professor Zemtsov, among other things, documented
that emu oil is noncomedogenic, nonirritating and has excellent moisturizing
and skin penetrating properties. Dr. Zemtsov presented this study and
was a keynote speaker at AEA annual national convention in Nashville
TN in 1994. This research is still widely quoted in emu oil industry
[if you Google Zemtsov and emu oil].
After moving to Indiana from Texas Dr. Zemtsov decided to pursue other
scientific endeavors and to concentrate on a private dermatology practice.
Over his career Dr. Zemtsov has published over 60 articles in peer reviewed
scientific journals, wrote numerous book chapters, was invited for journal
reviews and editorials, holds 4 patents, is a coeditor of an important
peer reviewed dermatology journal and holds various academic appointments
How Nirlana Came To Life:
New published emu oil research and commercial success of some emu oil
containing products rekindled Dr. Zemtsov's interest in emu oil a few
years ago. The newly formed Zemtsov, LLC has a portfolio of both patented
and trademark Nirlana products containing emu oil.
Cosmetic product Nirlana Rejuvenation Serum (see enclosed information)
is available for sale NOW and we are looking for national distributors.
Dr. Zemtsov has a number patented pharmaceutical products containing
emu oil as excipient for treatment of eczema and in the future for wound
healing, acne and psoriasis. Zemtsov, LLC had a preliminary and very
productive telephone conference with FDA regarding the trial phases
needed to bring Nirlana prescriptions to the market. Unfortunately at
this point the company lacks financial resources to conduct FDA required
animal and human studies to get potential FDA approval for eczema cream
but this is our long term goal.
