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 also exploring the option of conducting additional large scale multi-site human clinical trials on persons afflicted with CKD III/IV (pre-dialysis) stages. Subject to positive outcomes towards improving kidney function; these additional human clinical trials will help gain greater recognition and acceptance by consumers and healthcare professionals worldwide.
About Uremic Toxin Reduction Technology – Also known as "Enteric Dialysis®": Kibow's novel "uremic toxin removal technology" addresses the diffusion of various uremic toxins into the bowel as a consequence of failing kidney function.
