ow many times a person stops breathing per hour of sleep. In addition, the study confirmed a very high nightly compliance rate of nearly 90 percent. Average ESS reduction was five points in addition to a 74 percent reduction in snoring for treated patients.

"With this extension trial, we were pleased to see that the dramatic AHI reduction for patients was maintained for 12 months," said Dr. Kryger. "Long term nightly compliance remained close to 90 percent in this longer term study."

Multiple Presentations Highlight Use of Provent Therapy in Clinical Practice

A poster presentation by Glenn Adams, M.D., Medical Director for the Sleep Disorders Center at Sarasota Memorial Hospital in Sarasota, FL featured data using Provent Therapy in clinical practice. Dr. Adams showed that Provent Therapy when used alone or in combination with positional therapy (side sleeping) and/or chin straps was very effective in the treatment of OSA. AHI was reduced to less than 10 in more than 80 percent of patients (mild, moderate and severe) using Provent Therapy, and over 90 percent of patients with mild to moderate OSA. Approximately 75 percent of patients acclimated to Provent Therapy within 10 days.

Additional poster presentations from Dennis Hwang, M.D., of the Sleep Medicine Clinic at Kaiser Permanente in Fontana, CA, and Clifford Massie, Ph.D., Clinical Director of the Chicago Sleep Group and Suburban Lung Associates in Elk Grove Village, IL confirmed that in clinical practice, Provent Therapy is a viable alternative for patients with mild to moderate OSA who cannot tolerate CPAP therapy.

Finally, a poster presentation by Paula Schweitzer, Ph.D., Director of Research for the Sleep Medicine and Research Center in Chesterfield, MO, analyzed pooled data from past clinical trials to conclude that Provent Therapy demonstrated a meaningful response in patients with OSA.
