In Celebration of the 31st Annual Dialysis Conference, NxStage® Announces Over 5,000 Patients Using the System One™ for Home Hemodialysis
Date:2/17/2011

LAWRENCE, Mass., Feb. 17, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- In celebration of the 31st Annual Dialysis Conference, NxStage(R) Medical, Inc. (Nasdaq: NXTM), a leading manufacturer of innovative dialysis products, today announced that more than 5,000 patients are using the NxStage System One for home hemodialysis.  The System One is the only portable home hemodialysis machine cleared for home use by the FDA.

"This new milestone demonstrates growing support of home and more frequent hemodialysis with the System One from patients and providers within the renal community," said Jeff Burbank, Founder and CEO of NxStage Medical, Inc. "Many of these patients and providers have become enthusiastic advocates of our therapy and should be credited with growing patient access to the clinical and quality of life benefits possible with more frequent hemodialysis with the System One."

The NxStage® System One™ has been used in approximately four million treatments since its FDA clearance as the first truly portable home hemodialysis system. Unlike traditional dialysis equipment, the System One plugs into a standard electrical outlet and requires no special infrastructure for operation. Trained patients accompanied by their trained partners work the easy-to-use device. Rather than commuting to and from a dialysis clinic three times per week for scheduled treatment sessions lasting three to four hours, NxStage patients have the personal freedom to conduct prescribed treatments at home on their own schedule or to bring the System One with them while traveling. The System One works in concert with NxStage's PureFlow™ SL dialysate preparation system, a compact, easy-to-use system that prepares high-purity dialysate from regular tap water, helping to make daily home hemodialysis even more practical and accessible to patients. The PureFlow SL eliminates the need for bagged dialysate in the home, while still allowing patients to use bagged fluids when they travel.

The 31st Annual Dialysis Conference is being held in Phoenix, AZ from February 20-22nd, with pre-conference symposiums – including a course dedicated to home hemodialysis – on February 19th.  The Annual Dialysis Conference attracts thousands of healthcare practitioners to discuss current developments in dialysis.  NxStage will be celebrating the 5,000 patient milestone at an invitation-only educational event for attendees of the conference on Monday, February 21st.  The event, entitled "Leading a Renal Revolution, Together", will feature a kidney patient sharing his experiences, a leading home hemodialysis nephrologist discussing the need for a paradigm shift in ESRD care, and NxStage's perspective on growth to date in home hemodialysis.

(Nasdaq: NXTM) is a medical device company, headquartered in Lawrence, Massachusetts, USA, that develops, manufactures and markets innovative systems for the treatment of end-stage renal disease, or ESRD, and acute kidney failure.
