Rockwell Medical Announces Triferic(R) Presentation "Overcoming Functional Iron Deficiency in Your Hemodialysis Patients" at the National Kidney Foundation (NKF) Spring Clinical Meeting in Boston, MA April 29, 2016

Rockwell Medical, Inc. RMTI, -5.23% a fully-integrated biopharmaceutical company targeting end-stage renal disease (ESRD) and chronic kidney disease (CKD) with innovative products and services for the treatment of iron replacement, secondary hyperparathyroidism and hemodialysis, announced today that Dr. Steven Fishbane, MD, Chief of Nephrology, Northwell Health, will present "Overcoming Functional Iron Deficiency in Your Hemodialysis Patients" at the National Kidney Foundation Spring Clinical Meeting, Friday, April 29 [th] at 12:15PM EDT at Exhibitor Showcase Booth 125 at the Hynes Convention Center in Boston, Massachusetts.

"There is a growing consensus within the nephrology community that iron overload is, unfortunately, a very real problem in hemodialysis patients," stated Dr. Steven Fishbane, MD, Chief of Nephrology, Northwell Health. "There is a real need to deliver iron to patients at every dialysis treatment, iron that will bind immediately to transferrin and that will be utilized quickly, avoiding liver entrapment and the related toxicity and adverse outcomes. Triferic has a unique mode-of-action that enables it to bind iron immediately to transferrin and get to the bone marrow, overcoming the functional iron deficiency that occurs with all intravenous iron products, which are really being used outside of their approved indication. Triferic has shown it can safely deliver iron and maintain Hgb without increasing ferritin, overcoming the functional iron deficiency present in hemodialysis patients."
