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.

Supreme Court to hear genetic-testing kit patent fight
27 Jun 2016 at 6:51am
The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday agreed to weigh in on whether genetic-testing kits made by biotechnology company Life Technologies Corp infringed upon patents held by Promega Corp. The court will review a December 2014 ruling by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit that tossed out some of Promega's claims while upholding others. In 2010, Promega sued Life Technologies, now part of Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc, in Massachusetts, accusing it of selling genetic-testing kits that infringed upon four Promega patents and a fifth that Promega licensed from the German Max Planck Society.

Supreme Court set to decide major abortion case
27 Jun 2016 at 6:45am

By Lawrence Hurley WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Supreme Court is due on Monday to decide its first major abortion case since 2007, a challenge by abortion providers to a Republican-backed Texas law that imposed strict regulations on their doctors and facilities. Hundreds of people, including activists on both sides of the dispute, gathered outside the Supreme Court building on a sunny summer day in anticipation of a ruling on an issue that continues to divide Americans as it does people in many countries. Texas has said its law, passed by a Republican-led legislature and signed by a Republican governor in 2013, was aimed at protecting women's health.

(Reuters) - The U.S. Supreme Court's key rulings on abortion, dating to the landmark 1973 decision that legalized the procedure nationwide, have long provoked social, religious and political tensions. As the court majority became more conservative over the decades, it set standards that enhance states' ability to regulate abortion. Here is a look at the court's major abortion rulings.

27 Jun 2016 at 6:44am

Indonesian lawmakers seek seizure of unapproved vaccines amid fake drug scare
27 Jun 2016 at 5:50am

By Agustinus Beo Da Costa and Kanupriya Kapoor JAKARTA (Reuters) - Indonesian lawmakers on Monday urged authorities to seize from hospitals and health clinics all vaccines made by unapproved manufacturers, after police exposed a syndicate selling fake child vaccines for more than a decade. In a country where counterfeit drugs are widespread, the case deals a blow to government health regulators whom many believed to have kept a tight leash on the distribution of vaccines. Authorities have shut some private health facilities after police smashed a drug-making ring last week that sold fake and potentially harmful booster vaccines for measles, hepatitis B and other viruses in Jakarta and the island of Java.

Shares of the company were up about 21 percent at 611 pence at 11.33 GMT (7.33 a.m. ET) on the London Stock Exchange. GW Pharma's U.S.-listed shares were up nearly 17 percent at $96.52 on the Nasdaq in premarket trading on Monday.


Air pollution to kill millions more without energy policy change: IEA
27 Jun 2016 at 3:15am

By Nina Chestney LONDON (Reuters) - Premature deaths from air pollution will continue to rise to 2040 unless changes are made to the way the world uses and produces energy, the International Energy Agency said on Monday. Around 6.5 million deaths globally are attributed each year to poor air quality inside and outside, making it the world's fourth-largest threat to human health, behind high blood pressure, dietary risks and smoking. Harmful pollutants such as particulate matter - which can contain acids, metals, soil and dust particles - sulfur oxides and nitrogen oxides, are responsible for the most widespread effects of air pollution.


China city shuts down waste-burning plant project over protests
27 Jun 2016 at 2:54am
By Megha Rajagopalan BEIJING (Reuters) - The mayor of a city in central China made a rare public address calling of calm after thousands of people protested against a waste incineration project over fears it would damage the environment and residents' health. Tens of thousands of "mass incidents" - the usual euphemism for protests - happen in China each year, spurred by grievances over issues such as corruption, pollution and illegal land grabs, unnerving the stability-obsessed ruling Communist Party. The city of Xiantao, in Hubei province, said on Sunday it would suspend the project but protests continued on Monday.

27 Jun 2016 at 1:40am
(Reuters) - Drug developer Allergy Therapeutics Plc said a study on suitable doses of its therapy to treat grass allergic rhinitis, or hay fever, did not find a recommended dose for a late-stage trial. This is the second allergy therapy in two weeks to run into trouble, after Circassia Pharmaceuticals Plc said last week that its cat allergy treatment failed in a late-stage trial. Allergy Therapeutics, which specializes in allergy vaccines, said it now expected to enter the U.S. market later than expected.

U.S. Supreme Court poised to issue major abortion ruling
26 Jun 2016 at 5:03am

By Lawrence Hurley WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Supreme Court is due on Monday to issue its first major abortion ruling since 2007 against a backdrop of unremitting divisions among Americans on the issue and a decades-long decline in the rate at which women terminate pregnancies. The court's decision on whether a Republican-backed 2013 Texas law placed an undue burden on women exercising their constitutional right to abortion is one of three remaining cases for the court to decide on Monday, the last day of its term. The last time the justices decided a major abortion case was nine years ago when they ruled 5-4 to uphold a federal law banning a late-term abortion procedure.
