New Data Presented on Blood Volume at Annual Heart Failure Society Meeting Amid Call to Broadly Adopt Daxor’s Diagnostic Technology
NEW YORK, Sept. 18, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Daxor Corporation (NYSE MKT: DXR) an investment company with innovative medical instrumentation and biotechnology operations focused on blood volume measurement today announces new data from the Mayo Clinic showing the benefits of the BVA technology in chronic heart failure patients. The study was presented on September 12th during the 23rd Annual Scientific Meeting of the Heart Failure Society of America (HFSA) at the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Philadelphia, PA.
Dr. Wayne Miller of the Mayo Clinic in Rochester MN took part in an expert panel session focused on diagnostic measures to assess heart failure patients to determine optimal treatment strategies. Dr. Miller commented, with “the cost of rehospitalization, cost of emergency department visits, and the cost of mortality, can we afford not to measure volume if our goal is to really achieve optimal volume management assessment of our patients and improve outcomes?”
“Dr. Miller’s public comments, as well as the many private comments I received from leading physicians at the society meeting regarding Daxor’s technology are very gratifying and reflects the great need for personalized and optimized treatment,” said Michael Feldschuh, CEO of Daxor Corporation. “Objective quantification of volume status and composition with Daxor’s blood volume system leads to better informed treatment strategies resulting in significantly better patient outcomes.”
In addition to taking part in the expert panel of the society, Dr. Miller also presented new research data related to the various phenotypes of heart failure patients and renewed his call for volume measurement to individualize care. His study titled, “Persistent Intravascular Volume Expansion is Compensatory, Not Detrimental, in Post-Hospital Chronic Heart Failure Patients and Associated with Better Clinical Outcomes” looked at the extent of volume expansion and the impact on outcomes in post-hospital chronic heart failure patients.
