Schena Ostomy Technologies to be featured on 21st Century Health Television March 3, 2012

(EMAILWIRE.COM, March 01, 2012 ) Schena Ostomy Technologies has been selected to appear on 21st Century Health, an award winning international television series. Schena Ostomy Technologies is dedicated to improving an ostomates lifestyle through the life changing EZ-Clean™ products that they have developed. From personal life experience, Schena Ostomy Technologies saw the need for products that make coping with the day to day realities of ostomy more acceptable and made them a reality. Schena Ostomy offers products that can be life changing. The pouch systems offered are Medicare Approved. Ken Schena has five US Patents and two Foreign Patents with more pending.
The EZ-Clean is a system designed to make life easier for those with an Ostomy to service a Colostomy or Ileostomy. The system uses liquid (water) under pressure to clean the inside of the pouch and exposed surfaces of the stoma in less than 3 minutes. The water feed system is a one time purchase for use with replacement pouches purchased as needed. A Water Feed Adapter is available for use with plastic container bottled water to clean the pouch when no utility water source is available.

The EZ-Clean pouch has a manifold built into the top interior to disperse the water, under pressure, to totally cleanse the interior of the pouch and the exposed stoma area. There is an inlet at the top of the pouch to permit easy hook-up of the water feed system (Portable or Fixed). The pouch is a one piece design with the water inlet & manifold permanently attached. This is possible because of the ability of the user to thoroughly clean the pouch while still attached to the body, sitting on a commode (toilet). Evacuated contents are deposited in the toilet and simply flushed away without any personal contact. When the EZ-System is not being used, the pouch can function like any other drainable pouch with the added advantage of the user being able to easily vent any accumulated gas through the inlet. It is important to note this characteristic because anyone concerned about becoming home bound by this system should realize this pouch can function like any drainable without using EZ-Clean. The system can operate in a range of 20 to 80 lbs of water pressure.

Paraguay reports first two cases of Zika birth defect
27 Jul 2016 at 11:13am

Paraguay reported its first two cases Wednesday of babies born with microcephaly linked to the Zika virus, which is blamed for a surge in the birth defect across Latin America. "The central laboratory confirmed the birth of two babies with microcephaly caused by Zika," health ministry official Agueda Cabello told a press conference. Since Zika, a mosquito-borne virus, was detected in Latin America last year, health authorities have sounded the alarm over a sharp rise in the number of infected mothers giving birth to babies with microcephaly, or abnormally small heads.

Quest for new antibiotics gets right up your nose
27 Jul 2016 at 10:30am

Biologists on the hunt for new medicines to fight a growing epidemic of drug resistance said Wednesday they found an antibiotic in an unexpected place -- the human nose. The promising compound is produced by a nose-dwelling bacterium, and is able to kill a disease-causing, antibiotic-resistant superbug, they reported. "It was completely unexpected to find a human-associated bacterium to produce a real antibiotic," said study co-author Andreas Peschel of the University of Tubingen in Germany.

Scientists find potential new antibiotic, right under their noses
27 Jul 2016 at 10:08am
By Kate Kelland LONDON (Reuters) - Scientists in Germany have discovered a bacteria hiding out in peoples' noses that produces an antibiotic compound that can kill several dangerous pathogens, including the superbug MRSA. The early-stage finding, reported in the journal Nature on Wednesday, could one day lead to a whole new class of antibiotic medicines being developed to fight drug-resistant bacterial infections, the researchers said. As well as being a focal point for many viral infections, the nasal cavity is also a rich ecosystem of 50 or so different species of bacteria, lead researcher Andreas Peschel of the University of Tuebingentold reporters in a telephone briefing.

Lack of FGM ban in domestic violence law fails Liberia's girls, activists say
27 Jul 2016 at 9:47am
By Kieran Guilbert DAKAR (Thomson Reuters Foundation) - Women's rights activists condemned Liberia's parliament on Wednesday for removing a ban on female genital mutilation (FGM) from a new domestic violence law in a country where half of women have been cut. The law listed FGM as a criminal offense, along with threats and acts of physical and sexual violence, and emotional abuse, when it was first submitted to lawmakers last September. "It's extremely frustrating that the domestic violence bill was due to include an FGM ban, then a weaker ban and now no ban at all," said Mary Wandia of the rights group Equality Now.

"As long as the party says continue, I continue...If I still have the energy, I still have the life, the blessings of God, I will continue," Mugabe said in a 50-minute address.

TauRx Alzheimer's drug fails in large study; some benefit seen
27 Jul 2016 at 8:08am
By Julie Steenhuysen CHICAGO (Reuters) - TauRx Pharmaceuticals' experimental Alzheimer's drug LMTX failed to improve cognitive and functional skills in patients with mild to moderate Alzheimer's disease, a large, late-stage study showed. Claude Wischik, co-founder of Singapore-based TauRx and a professor of geriatric psychiatry at Aberdeen University, said the drug reduced the rate of decline in cognitive and functional skills by 85 percent in that so-called "monotherapy" group. While the overall study involved 891 elderly subjects, only 15 percent, or some 136 people, were not taking standard Alzheimer's drugs.
