NEW YORK, Sept. 15, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Daxor Corporation (NYSE MKT: DXR), an investment company with innovative medical instrumentation and biotechnology operations focused on blood volume measurement, today announces the Company will be participating in the inaugural Sepsis Alliance Summit. Michael Feldschuh, President and Chief Executive Officer of Daxor, will present as part of a Panel Discussion: Connecting Innovation to Clinicians: The Development Story to Improve Sepsis Care on Thursday, September 17th, 2020, at 1:30 PM ET.
“I am honored to be invited to participate in this important event to discuss how our BVA-100 blood test can provide insights into volume derangements and capillary permeability in critically-ill patients with sepsis,” said Michael Feldschuh, President and CEO of Daxor. “The albumin transudation rate which is a unique metric of the BVA-100 test is an indicator of the rate at which fluids may be escaping the intravascular space - a persistently elevated leak rate is a prognostic marker associated with a higher mortality and can be used to triage patients, guide treatment and measure response to interventions.”
Dozens of peer-reviewed studies have established the value of Daxor’s BVA-100 test, confirming that accurate blood volume measurement leads to better informed physicians, improved patient outcomes and resource utilization. In a randomized control trial conducted at a Level-1 trauma center on patients suffering predominantly from ARDS/sepsis/septic shock/hemorrhagic shock; patients who received BVA guided care showed significant benefits including 66% lower mortality, days on ventilators, and ICU length of stay.
