NEWTOWN SQUARE, Pa., June 21, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- This year's International Scientific Conference on Probiotics and Prebiotics (IPC 2016) will be held in Budapest, Hungary – June 21st - 23rd http://www.probiotic-conference.net. It will focus on the current advances in the science and research of Probiotics/ Prebiotics in the rapidly emerging field "Gut Microbiome" and with a particular focus on their role in maintaining health and preventing diseases (the key mission of this event). IPC2016 will also focus on evidence ascertained from running clinical trials and scientific experiments. The mission of the IPC 2016 conference is to provide a comprehensive scientific forum to all stakeholders of Probiotic/ Prebiotic businesses. The three-day conference is a networking event for scientists, researchers, product developers, industry participants and regulatory officials (a large portion of who will be from the European Food Safety Authority). More than 400 attendees from 80 different countries are participating at this highly scientific oriented conference.
It is indeed a great recognition and honor for Kibow to be invited to present a talk titled: "Pro/Prebiotics Modulation of Gut Microbiome Towards Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) Application." Dr. Natarajan Ranganathan – Senior Vice President of Research and Development - will deliver the talk as the "closing pitcher" for the conference. Kibow will also be presenting an abstract titled: "Impact of Gut Microbiome Modulation in People with Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) – Results of a Survey," with their dietary supplement product "Renadyl" being marketed via their company's website.
Renadyl™, a probiotic and prebiotic dietary supplement, is currently sold via Kibow's own online store (www.renadyl.com or www.kibow.com). This probiotic dietary 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, via 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.
In addition to marketing and sales of Renadyl™ as a dietary supplement, the company is currently exploring the option of advancing the product to prescription drug status by way of adhering to all USFDA guidelines. This will mandate obtaining the needed Investigator New Drug (IND) process and accomplishing several additional human Randomized Controlled Trials (RCT) in the forthcoming years in USA and possibly in several other countries. As a prescription drug, the product will gain greater acceptance by healthcare professionals and equally increased potential for marketing and sales towards Chronic Kidney Disease applications worldwide.
