"Building New Paths to Kidney Health" is the theme of Kidney Week 2014 and is incorporated throughout the meeting. Kibow is proud to participate as an exhibitor for the past nine consecutive years at this premier annual ASN event in its hometown Philadelphia. For the first time ASN has also scheduled a session titled "Gut-kidney Axis" wherein the experts will be discussing on "Gut Microbiome", uremic toxins, dysbiosis and its role in Kidney health.
Kibow Biotech Inc, the winner of recently held "Buzz of BIO" 2014 – International BIO conference (pipelines of promise category) at San Diego, CA, is pleased of their participation at this special event. Kibow's exhibit booth will feature data from its three human clinical trials with their flagship probiotic dietary supplement Renadyl™ which is targeted towards "Kidney Health". These clinical trials were conducted at various sites in USA, Canada, Argentina and Nigeria between 2009 and 2012.
Renadyl™, a probiotic 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 blood, thus helping to maintain healthy kidney function, via Kibow's Uremic Toxin Reduction Technology (Enteric Dialysis®). The probiotic microbial strains used in the product formulation are "Generally Recognized as Safe" (GRAS status), according to the regulations of U.S. FDA.

About Uremic Toxin Reduction Technology (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. The Company's patented and proprietary dietary supplements, Renadyl™ (for human product) and Azodyl (®) (veterinary formulation licensed to Vetoquinol SA) consist of a combination of three specific probiotic microbial strains. The results of a randomized, double-blind, crossover, pilot scale clinical trial completed in 2010 provided encouraging preliminary evidence that the Company's technology could be effective when the formulation is taken together with the standard care of therapy in accordance with individual patient's kidney health condition.
