ALCESTER, England, September 20, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --
Quanta Dialysis Technologies Ltd ("Quanta" or the "Company"), a medical device company providing innovative haemodialysis solutions for the clinic and the home, today announces that it will present a poster at a moderated session on Friday 23 October at 11:30am-12:30pm at the 10th International Congress of the International Society of Haemodialysis (ISHD). The Congress will be held from Thursday 22nd to Saturday 24th September, 2016, at the Palais des congrès de Marrakech, Marrakech.
The poster will report on the results of the first 255 treatments completed using SC+ at Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust; Guy's and St Thomas' NHS Foundation Trust, London; and Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Birmingham.
The study, designed as an anonymised open-label, single-arm, pilot study was conducted with end-stage renal disease (ESRD) subjects receiving regular haemodialysis. A total of 43 subjects with a mean age of 62 were evaluated on a volunteer basis and each dialysis therapy was performed at an outpatient clinic. Clinical performance of SC+ was assessed by StdKt/V and URR for the study population and usability feedback was collected from nurse operators and study subjects post treatment.
SC+ performed consistently across the 255 treatments, with results demonstrating the safety and performance of SC+ as a novel HD system with acceptable clinical and technical performance in the dialysed ESRD subject population. There was no measured loss of therapy time, UF performance was acceptable, no significant usability issues were noted and there were no safety issues or device-related adverse events to report. These results demonstrate that patients dialysed with SC+ achieve adequate clearance using standard treatment regimens traditionally used in-centre. The study is ongoing.
The details of the poster at ISHD are as follows:
Title: Assessment of the safety, efficacy and usability of the Quanta SC+ haemodialysis system

It has been designed to bring flexibility to the dialysis community by allowing a greater choice in treatment frequency and location for dialysis patients.
Organized for the first time in Africa, this ISHD International Congress will not only provide a high-level scientific program on the most recent aspects in the field of haemodialysis but also allow for sharing experiences between colleagues from around the world. This meeting has the ambition to focus on scientific, practical and socio-economic challenges across diverse regions, to address the Congress theme: "For a comprehensive, equitable and sustainable access to kidney disease care". There will also be many CNE sessions and workshops for nephrologists and nurses.
