LAWRENCE, Mass., Feb. 21, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- NxStage® Medical, Inc. (Nasdaq: NXTM), a leading manufacturer of innovative dialysis products, today commented on a recent independent study which reports that home hemodialysis with the NxStage System One™ has less than half the carbon footprint of therapy conducted with traditional in-center hemodialysis machines.
