Date:10/3/2011

LAWRENCE, Mass., Oct. 3, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- NxStage® Medical, Inc. (Nasdaq: NXTM), a leading manufacturer of innovative dialysis products, today applauded the efforts of its home hemodialysis patients together with the National Kidney Foundation (NKF) and Dialysis Patient Citizens (DPC), in advocating for improvements in the quality of care for end stage renal disease (ESRD) patients with lawmakers.

NxStage home hemodialysis patients recently joined a delegation of patient advocates for a series of congressional briefings and meetings in Washington, D.C. Patients stressed the need for important policy changes including the extension of immunosuppressive drug coverage for transplant patients, improved access to more frequent home hemodialysis, and other policies impacting dialysis patients in the U.S.

"These meetings are important opportunities to engage with policymakers and share first-hand the unique challenges dialysis patients face," said Vanessa Evans, Dialysis Patient Citizens member and NxStage home hemodialysis patient. "I feel fortunate to have access to more frequent home dialysis therapy, which is the best option for me and my lifestyle, but there is much to be done to improve education on treatment options and healthcare policy surrounding kidney disease and we look forward to continuing to advocate for the dialysis community."  

"NxStage patients and these advocacy groups are important champions of quality care for dialysis patients," said Jeffrey H. Burbank, chief executive officer of NxStage Medical, Inc. "We commend their continuing efforts to expand access to therapies that can lead to improved quality of life, better health outcomes and associated lower costs for all dialysis patients."
