NxStage: NIH Study Published in New England Journal of Medicine Adds to Growing Body of Evidence in Support of More Frequent Hemodialysis
Date:9/23/2011

LAWRENCE, Mass., Sept. 23, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- NxStage Medical, Inc. (Nasdaq: NXTM), a leading manufacturer of innovative dialysis products, today commented on the just-released findings of an NIH sponsored study which shows that event rates, including mortality, were significantly higher for patients following the long (2-day) interdialytic interval associated with a three times per week dialysis schedule ("conventional dialysis").  The study entitled "Long Interdialytic Interval and Mortality among Patients Receiving Hemodialysis," compared the rates of death and cardiovascular-related hospital admissions on the day after the 2-day interdialytic interval with rates on other days for 32,065 in-center hemodialysis patients from the United States Renal Data System (USRDS) database.

Burbank, Chief Executive Officer, NxStage Medical Inc. "As we strive to improve the health and quality of life for dialysis patients with our life changing therapy, we look forward to working with policy makers to ens
