RenalGuard(R) Pilot Safety Clinical Trial Data to be Presented at ACC 2009
Date:3/27/2009

FRANKLIN, Mass., March 27 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- PLC Systems Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: PLCSF), a company focused on innovative cardiac and vascular medical device-based technologies, today announced that the first data from its pilot safety trial for RenalGuard(R) will be presented in a poster session at the American College of Cardiology Annual Conference, on Sunday, March 29, 2009 at 3:30 PM in Orlando, Florida. The poster will be presented by Dr. Jean-Francois Dorval, of the Brigham and Women's Hospital, Boston, Massachusetts.

The trial, the first in-man study involving RenalGuard in the United States, was designed to test the safety of the RenalGuard System(TM) when used to provide high volume matched diuresis in patients at high risk for Contrast-Induced Nephropathy (CIN) undergoing angiography. A total of 23 patients were enrolled in the study, which was completed in late 2007. The lead investigator for the trial was Dr. Frederic S. Resnic, Director of the Cardiac Catheterization Lab at Brigham and Women's Hospital.

Dr. Resnic noted, "Our conclusion was that the system demonstrated effective high volume fluid balancing with acceptable safety. Further evaluation of system efficacy at preventing CIN is warranted."

In November 2008, the company received full approval from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for its U.S. pivotal trial to study the effectiveness of RenalGuard and its associated therapy in the prevention of CIN. Under the trial design, 406 patients will be enrolled at up to 30 institutions.

Mark R. Tauscher, president and chief executive officer of PLC Systems, said, "We are very pleased that Dr. Dorval will be presenting this important study, the first in-man study for the RenalGuard System, at ACC this year to further educate clinicians about RenalGuard Therapy(R) to address this critical problem. CIN is a significant and growing concern worldwide, and we
