STEWARTVILLE, Minn., Sept. 12 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Rochester Medical Corporation (Nasdaq: ROCM) announced today the publication of results from a significant clinical study which further demonstrates the effectiveness of the Company's proprietary Infection Control Technology.

The newly released September issue of the "Annals of Internal Medicine" presents results of a randomized, double-blind, controlled clinical trial involving 212 adult patients at Denmark's Copenhagen Trauma Center.

The study was conducted by Jakob Stensballe, PhD; Michael Tvede, MD; Dagnia Looms, PhD; Freddy Knudsen Lippert, MD; Benny Dahl, DMSc; Else Tonnesen, DMSc; and Lars Simon Rasmussen, PhD.
