LAWRENCE, Mass., Nov. 5 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- NxStage Medical, Inc. (Nasdaq: NXTM), a leading manufacturer of innovative dialysis products, today announced that the annual scientific meeting of the American Society of Nephrology (ASN) will feature multiple podium and poster presentations that explore the benefits and uses of daily home hemodialysis (DHD) and critical care renal replacement therapy.

These independent studies are in addition to the presentation of interim results from the FREEDOM Study, "Daily Home HD Improves Quality of Life (QoL) Measures, Depressive Symptoms and Recovery Time: Interim Results from the FREEDOM Study," which takes place on Friday, November 7 at 4pm, F-FC230. On behalf of the FREEDOM study, co-investigator Frederic Finkelstein of Yale University will report and explain 4-month results which show that daily home hemodialysis with the NxStage System One significantly reduces recovery time, reduces depressive symptoms, and improves physical and mental quality-of-life. The ongoing FREEDOM Study is sponsored by NxStage, and additional information may be gathered at http://www.clinicaltrials.gov.

Two ASN curriculum sessions will feature discussion of home and/or more frequent hemodialysis therapies.
