CorMedix Inc. to be Featured on Panel at FBR & Co. Healthcare Series Event Focused on Infectious Diseases
New Prescriptions: Innovation in the Treatment of Diseases and Infections to be held April 20, 2016 in New York, NY
Bedminster, NJ – April 6, 2016 – CorMedix Inc. (NYSE MKT: CRMD), a biopharmaceutical company focused on developing and commercializing therapeutic products for the prevention and treatment of infectious and inflammatory disease, announced that the Company’s Chief Executive Officer, Randy Milby, will participate in a panel discussion titled, “Showcase of Novel Technologies in Fighting Infections,” as part of FBR & Company’s New Prescriptions: Innovation in the Treatment of Diseases and Infections, on April 20, 2016, in New York.
Randy Milby, CorMedix CEO, said, “We are honored to be invited to participate in this important discussion about novel approaches to fighting infections. Our unique non-antibiotic anti-infective solution Neutrolin® has been proven to reduce bloodstream infections following venous catheter placement, which cost an average of $45,000 per infection and an estimated $2.3 billion annual cost to the U.S. healthcare system. To put it in perspective, this accounts for more than 20% of the total annual cost of hospital-acquired infections. We’ve also demonstrated recently that the active anti-microbial component of Neutrolin, taurolidine, can be effectively incorporated into various medical and surgical materials to prevent infection-related complications and further damage to vulnerable tissues. We are proud of our innovations and look forward to sharing our insights on this panel.”
