PLC Receives Two Additional U.S. Patents and First Japanese Patent For Its RenalGuard® Technology
Date:9/22/2011

MILFORD, Mass., Sept. 22, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- PLC Systems Inc. (OTCBB: PLCSF), a company focused on innovative medical device technologies, today announced it has been granted two additional U.S. patents by the U.S. Patent Office, as well as the company's first Japanese patent, all covering aspects of PLC's new product technology, RenalGuard®.

The innovative RenalGuard Therapy® is designed to reduce the toxic effects that contrast media can have on the kidneys for patients undergoing imaging procedures, and prevent the occurrence of contrast-induced nephropathy (CIN) in the millions of at-risk patients around the world. This novel therapy is based on the theory that creating and maintaining a high urine output allows the body to rapidly eliminate the contrast media, reducing its toxic effects, and especially reducing the incidence of CIN, which can be costly and deadly, and for which there is currently no other effective remedy available.

The patents issued in the U.S. cover both the core methodology as well as the actual RenalGuard device, with the method patent providing broad coverage for the use of matched fluid replacement to combat CIN. The Japanese patent covers the specific RenalGuard device and operation, and represents an important step forward.

Andrew Halpert, Director of Marketing and Engineering of PLC Systems Inc., stated, "Receiving these additional patents in the U.S. and Japan for our proprietary RenalGuard technology is truly noteworthy.  These patents greatly strengthen our existing intellectual property position and provide us with important credibility in the medical community as we continue our efforts to expand adoption of RenalGuard in countries where it is able to be marketed. We intend to continue building our patent position to protect and enhance the value of our RenalGuard technology as a method of CIN prevention. Combined with the positive results produced in investigator-sponsored clinical tria
