Date:3/10/2011

PHILADELPHIA, March 10, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- On the occasion of World Kidney Day, Kibow Biotech, Inc. is pleased to announce its renewed commitment, hope and support for the worldwide maintenance of healthy kidney function among all those people with kidney problems.

In addition, Kibow Biotech, Inc. would also like to announce that it has received Institutional Review Board (IRB) approvals for conducting human clinical trials with its patented, proprietary and probiotic dietary supplement product – Kibow® Biotics. These human clinical trials will soon be initiated on dialysis patients at Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia, PA and the State University of New York (Downstate Medical Center & King's County Hospital, in Brooklyn, NY). Further IRB approval at The Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN is pending for Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) III & IV patients.

The Company's novel probiotic dietary supplement product, Kibow® Biotics, utilizes a patented and proprietary bowel-based uremic toxin reduction technology for use in clinical applications towards maintaining a healthy kidney function. Kibow® Biotics has three probiotic microbial strains that are Generally Recognized As Safe (GRAS) by the U.S. FDA. This status essentially means that Kibow® Biotics is generally known, among skilled scientific and medical experts, as having been adequately shown to be safe under the conditions of its intended use.

Dr. Ranganathan states, "By developing an affordable, readily available and easy-to-administer dietary supplement, Kibow offers hope to all those who suffer from kidney problems in the USA and other countries, while in accordance with their respective governmental regulatory/registration authorities."

About Kibow Biotech:

Kibow Biotech, Inc. is a 13-year-old R&D biotechnology company, having its operations in Newtown Square, PA, USA. The company's mission is dedicated to finding a simple, convenient and cost-effective worldwide solution for people experiencing kidney function problems. The company's flagship product is called "Kibow® Biotics," an orally consumable, enteric-coated capsule formulation that is composed of food-grade microbes ("Probiotics") which metabolize the uremic toxins diffusing into the bowel as a consequence of increased levels of these toxins in the blood. The purpose of this non-drug, dietary supplement product is to help maintain a healthy kidney function for people in need of alternative or complementary Over The Counter (OTC) products.

About Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD)According to the National Kidney Foundation, more than 26 million Americans - one in nine adults - have kidney disease and most don't know it. Since kidney disease is often silent without any symptoms, it can go undiagnosed, especially in those who are not aware of the major risk factors. Anyone with high blood pressure, diabetes or a family history of these conditions or kidney disease is at risk and should get his or her kidneys checked. Kidney disease can be found and treated early to prevent more serious kidney disease and other complications.
