Date:1/6/2009

LAWRENCE, Mass., Jan. 6 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- NxStage Medical, Inc. (Nasdaq: NXTM), a leading manufacturer of innovative dialysis products, today announced that a group of its first patients are celebrating their five-year anniversary of home hemodialysis treatment with the NxStage(R) System One(TM), the first truly portable home hemodialysis machine.
