Daxor to Exhibit at American Heart Association 2018
NEW YORK, Nov. 08, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) - Daxor Corporation (NYSE MKT: DXR) an investment company with innovative medical instrumentation and biotechnology operations focused on blood volume measurement today announces it will be attending the American Heart Association Scientific Sessions (AHA) at the McCormick Place Convention Center in Chicago, IL from November 10-12th, 2018. A presentation by Marat Fudim, M.D. of Duke University Medical Center demonstrating the clinical utility of blood volume analysis to help guide hypertension management will be featured.
'The AHA Annual Meeting is a leading event gathering over 12,000 experts from around the world focused on reducing disabilities and death from cardiovascular disease and stroke. Eighty-five percent of heart failure patients have a known history of hypertension. We are looking forward to sharing with leaders in the field how our BVA-100 (Blood Volume Analyzer) has been proven to not only reduce heart failure 30-day mortality by 82% and 30-day readmissions by 56%, but also how volume management is an essential component to help guide hypertension therapy. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates one in three adults have hypertension (or high blood pressure), a leading cause of stroke, heart attack and kidney failure,' said Michael Feldschuh, CEO of Daxor Corporation. The company will be exhibiting at Booth #2016.
