GenoMed Offers New Orleans Free Medical Assistance for Acute Kidney Failure and Mosquito-borne Viral Diseases like West Nile
GenoMed, Inc. ("the Company" or "GenoMed") (Pink Sheets: GMED - News) a St. Louis, Missouri-based Next Generation Disease Management company, announced today that it was offering free assistance to medical workers confronting acute kidney failure in the wake of Hurricane Katrina in Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama. In future weeks, the Company stands ready to help with the expected resurgence in West Nile virus encephalitis and the possible emergence of other mosquito-borne viral diseases like dengue, St. Louis Equine Encephalitis, etc.

Many patients in New Orleans and elsewhere in Katrina's path are at imminent risk for acute kidney failure from dehydration, brought on by excessive heat and the lack of drinking water. With power gone in the hurricane zone, patients will need to be air-lifted to nearby dialysis facilities. Tens of thousands of people are at risk, far more than can be accommodated this way. A method for treating acute kidney failure without dialysis is urgently needed.

GenoMed was recently awarded a patent to treat acute kidney failure with an already existing intravenous medication which has been available for decades. In pilot studies, GenoMed's method has avoided the need for kidney dialysis in over 70% of adults and infants tested.
