What's up with a recent press report about company X, who has a product Y, experimented on by researcher(s) Z?

Go to http://www.X.com.
If that doesn't work, search for X in a search engine.

Go to PubMed, and search keyword Y.
(Try also http://www.Y.com, where that makes sense.)

Go to PubMed, and search author Z.
(Try also http://www.Z.com, where that makes sense.)

Best way to get the facts.

It benefits from collaborative research with the Department of Neurobiology at the Weizmann Institute of Science and with physicians at a number of renowned medical centers both in Israel and abroad.
