Kibow Biotech Further Validates RENADYL™ Towards Failing Kidney Function And Its Original Concept "Will The Bowel Be The Kidney Of Future?" With Greater Understanding And Recognition In The #1 Emerging Field Of Microbiome
NEWTOWN SQUARE, Penn., Nov. 15, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The world's premier nephrology meeting, the 50 th annual American Society of Nephrology (ASN) Kidney Week 2016 conference is being held at Chicago, IL, Nov 15 - 20 https://www.asn-online.org/kidneyweek/. Kibow Biotech, Inc. is pleased to mark its 11th year of continued participation as an exhibitor and thus increasing awareness and understanding of its "Enteric Dialysis®" Technology. This technology was based on the original concept - "Will the Bowel be the Kidney of Future?" which is now called the Gut-Kidney connection. The Cleveland Clinic recently announced its list of Top 10 Medical innovations. Using the Microbiome to prevent, diagnose and treat disease is now recognized as the #1 MEDICAL INNOVATION with potential to transform healthcare ( http://www.modernhealthcare.com/article/20161027/NEWS/161029924). The company's patented technology is based on modulating the Gut Microbiome with specific strains of Probiotics and selected Prebiotics and thus helps maintain a healthy kidney function. The company has also been selected to present its scientific poster abstract on the use of Renadyl™ and its positive customer survey outcome at this conference. The abstract summarized the impact of Gut Microbiome on Quality of Life in customers with CKD using Renadyl™. Although it is a dietary supplement product, the company has performed extensive R&D, scientific and observational human clinical trials similar to any pharmaceutical product development. Renadyl™, a probiotic and prebiotic dietary supplement, is currently sold online via Kibow websites, ( www.renadyl.com or www.kibow.com). This probiotic supplement is known for its ability to target and help reduce the buildup of uremic toxins in the body, thus helping to maintain healthy kidney function, by means of Kibow's Uremic Toxin Reduction Technology. The probiotic microbial strains used in the product formulation are "Generally Recognized as Safe" (GRAS status), according to the regulations of U.S. FDA. The company is currently exploring the various options of potentially advancing the product to prescription dietary supplement status that could qualify for medical reimbursement (e.g.; prenatal vitamins, enteral nutrition products etc.). Essentially, this will mandate obtaining an exemption of Investigator New Drug (IND) from the office of Dietary Supplement /US FDA. Subsequently, the company needs to accomplish additional human CKD Randomized Controlled Trials (RCT) in the forthcoming years in the US and several other countries. As a prescription dietary supplement, the product will gain greater acceptance by healthcare professionals and equally increased potential for marketing and sales towards Chronic Kidney Disease applications worldwide.
