PuraCath Medical Presents Study at National Kidney Foundation 2015 Spring Clinical Meetings


Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) March 27, 2015

PuraCath Medical, an emerging company in the development of technologies to reduce infections in patients with intravascular and peritoneal catheters, announced today that it presented new scientific data on its proprietary ultraviolet light-based technology during the National Kidney Foundation’s (NKF) 2015 Spring Clinical Meetings. The study presented reported on the ability to reduce bacterial growth in a simulated peritoneal dialysis delivery system when combining ultraviolet (UV) light with a UV transmissible connection system. This data confirms the effectiveness of combining UV light with a UV transmissible connection system to reduce bacterial growth across a wider range of bacteria and a fungi (Candida albicans) which are known to contribute to infections and peritonitis in peritoneal dialysis patients. The current study builds on earlier research the company presented at the American Society of Nephrology meeting in 2014.

“PuraCath Medical’s technology is a revolutionary approach to reducing the risk of infections that could lead to a change in the way peritoneal dialysis is performed,” stated Alberto Sabucedo, M.D., Ph.D., from the Department of Nephrology and Hypertension at the University of Miami. “This is a promising technology that will enable a better quality of life for patients on peritoneal dialysis, and I look forward to utilizing in my practice when it is available for clinical use.”

“While there is increasing interest in the use of peritoneal dialysis therapy to manage patients with end-stage renal disease, patients still currently remain at risk of developing infections and peritonitis from low compliance with rigorous disinfection protocols, impacting their ability to remain on this therapy for the long term,” said Julia Rasooly, PuraCath Medical’s CEO. “The study we presented at the NKF meeting confirms that our approach to reduce bacterial growth through the use of a novel UV light-based PD purification system is effective across a wider range of microorganisms than we initially tested. Based on the results of this study and the rapid progress we have made with our product development efforts to date, we look to initiate the first clinical studies of our technology in PD patients in the near future. PuraCath believes in the value and the lifestyle convenience peritoneal dialysis therapy offers to patients and we are developing a PD disinfection system that enhances PD patient’s quality of life and also provides an easy-to-use, patient friendly option to reducing bacterial and fungal contamination during PD exchanges. We feel confident that this will allow a broader range of patients to benefit from the quality of life of treatment on PD.”

WHAT IS PERITONEAL DIALYSIS?

Peritoneal dialysis is a home-based dialysis therapy that offers patients a more flexible and physiologically smoother dialysis option. Unlike hemodialysis, peritoneal dialysis uses a patient’s peritoneal membrane to remove toxins and excess fluid from a patient. Peritoneal dialysis therapy permits patients to have a more regular diet and more flexible treatment times, improving their quality of life. Currently there are over 45,000 peritoneal dialysis patients in the U.S. with the number of patients on this therapy increasing over the past several years. The most common complications from peritoneal dialysis include infection around the catheter site or infection of the lining of the abdominal wall (peritonitis).

ABOUT PURACATH MEDICAL

PuraCath Medical is a company based in San Francisco, CA and is dedicated to improving the quality of life for the dialysis patient by reducing infections related to peritoneal dialysis (PD) and saving time through improved, simplified connection of PD catheters. The Company utilizes technology that was spun out of Stanford University and is developing a novel, easy-to-use technology designed to reduce the risk of infections in patients with intravascular and peritoneal catheters in order to decrease infection-related hospitalizations and their associated costs.

MPG Launches its Spring 2015 ‘I AM, WE ARE’ Collection and Campaign


(PRWEB) February 19, 2015

Canadian activewear apparel label, MPG – Mondetta Performance Gear, has launched its Spring 2015 ‘I Am, We Are’ Collection that represents the next step in the company’s ever evolving approach to activewear apparel that seamlessly blends fashion-forward and cutting edge design with technical advances in fabrication and construction.

Updates to the women’s collection for Spring 2015 include striking new additions to the print story with patterns such as an abstracted geometric block, two watercolor variations, oversized ribbon, gothic lace and vintage baroque. Like previous seasons, the collection has been divided into a number of different capsules each reflecting the aesthetic and functional approach to the garments in each but has also been expanded with MPG’s first foray into swim and cycling wear:

Run/Fitness         Studio

Yoga                     Core

Seamless             Club – Tennis & Golf

Commuter            Swim

Cycling

MPG’s men’s collection, reflecting market trends, continues to adhere closely to the performance side yet still remains much more stylish and fashionable than comparable brands in the activewear segment. The capsules therein are Core, Run-Fitness, Lifestyle and Club.

Taking the ‘My Performance, My Lifestyle’ philosophy to the next level, the Spring 2015 ‘I am, We are’ campaign expresses the MPG ethos in a simple statement to reflect the core values of our brand as expressed by our Messengers.

Each individual who appears in the editorial videos and images is on a personal journey, a relentless pursuit of athletic and artistic excellence for which there is no discernible zenith: Every accomplishment is a mere stepping stone to the next pinnacle to be reached, the next record to be broken. Resting on one’s laurels is never an option.

Along that path, the MPG apparel they wear not only forms a part of their athletic odyssey but allows them to communicate their personal aesthetic, character and philosophy. When each Messenger states, ‘I am MPG’ he/she is broadcasting to the world: Athletic performance is my life, MPG allows me to share myself.

The ‘We Are’ aspect of the campaign extends the message of the Messengers to every person in pursuit of the same goals.

“The new direction of our ‘I am, We are’ campaign allows us to focus even further on the Messengers appearing in the Spring 2015 images and videos,” said MPG CEO, Ash Modha. “Intrinsically linking the products to the incredible individuals we’ve enlisted this season allows us to illustrate the brand’s continued tradition of melding fashion and function.”

As has been the case every season since the brand’s inception, the Spring 2015 editorial campaign features ‘models’ who are athletes and dancers, chosen for their incredible dedication and discipline in their chosen fields. The images/videos created using MPG Messengers, the brand’s ambassadors, viscerally illustrate not only the technical capabilities of the garments but also their innate versatility to function in both active and casual settings. The MPG Messengers in this season’s campaign are:

Craig Ramsay – Celebrity fitness expert, TV personality and Motivator to Move

Brittany Trubridge – Yoga Instructor and Creator of B.Tru Yoga

Isabella Boylston – Principal Dancer with the American Ballet Theatre

Michelle Mehnert – Team USA Triathlete

Ella Magers – Personal Trainer

Sean Jefferson – Team USA Triathlete

The images and video were shot by Seattle-based Marc von Borstel, who has garnered extensive experience shooting our Messengers, and Sam Graydon, respectively. The editorial materials capture the diverse individuals in an active iteration, which are shot in color, and a lifestyle one, shot in black and white.

About MPG:

Founded in 2004 as a division of Mondetta Clothing, MPG, in its continuing efforts to create fashion forward active apparel, bridges the gap between performance and lifestyle to create entire collections that transition from one to the other with an innate versatility absent from other brands in the market. And although much of the original inspiration for the brand and its aesthetic was shaped by dance and dancers, MPG has found fans across a wide spectrum of individuals in pursuit of athletic excellence, including a large segment practicing yoga. From a handful of retail outlets in 2004 and 2005, the brand is now carried in over 450 outlets across North America including some of the most prestigious sports retailers, gyms/spas and yoga studios in the US and Canada. Looking forward, the company plans on continuing opening more doors to both big box retailers as well as smaller locations.

Spring fitness

When spring approaches and the weather gets nice, there’s nothing better than throwing on a pair of running shoes and getting some exercise outdoors. The only problem? Temperatures that are warmer than winter’s but still relatively cool make it easy to forget a very serious exercise-induced concern: Dehydration. Recent research shows that exercisers can actually lose more water in colder, spring-like weather than at any other time of the year.

How spring dehydration happens

When you work out, you typically get hot and begin to sweat. Sweating causes your nervous system to send a signal to the brain that says, “I’m about to get thirsty — hydrate me!” But in cold or cool weather, the brain doesn’t get that thirst signal in the same way. In fact, some people don’t get a signal at all; they are lax in replenishing their water stores and put themselves at risk for dehydration.

Signs and symptoms of serious dehydration

A good rule of thumb: If you notice two or more of these symptoms at the same time, especially after any outdoor activity, sip some water and contact your doctor immediately.

Dry, sticky mouth

Muscle weakness and extreme, sudden fatigue

Headache

Extreme thirst

Irritability and a sense of confusion

Lack of sweating

No urination (or urine that’s dark yellow in color)

Rapid heartbeat

Fever

Who’s at risk of becoming dehydrated in cooler weather?

Endurance athletes. Because they work out so often, they’re already more likely to experience dehydration than others.

Coffee and tea drinkers. The more caffeinated beverages you drink, the more you’re going to have to urinate, and the more water your body loses.

Understanding why cold weather dehydration happens is the first step in preventing it. Here are a few more tips:

1. Drink lots of water. If you know you’re going to go outdoors to exercise or perform other physical activities, drink before, during and after your outing. And depending on your activity level, the typical eight glasses of water a day may not be enough. Talk to your doctor about how much water you should be drinking.

2. Try a sports drink. Most will help you restore your electrolyte balance after an intense workout. Try drinking one or two servings before and after exercise.

3. If you’re thirsty, stop working out. Your body will tell you when you’re thirsty or when you’ve been working out too hard. Learn to listen to your body and cut your activities short if you sense dehydration is looming.

4. Weigh yourself. Some super-endurance athletes weigh themselves before and after a workout to gauge how much fluid they’ve lost during an activity. If, when you weigh yourself, you’ve lost more than one pound, replenish your water stores, fast.

5. Eat water-rich foods. Drinking water isn’t the only way to get fluid into your system. You also can stay hydrated by eating water-based fruits and veggies, like watermelon and cucumber.
