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.

MIAMI (AP) ? Mixed signals from the Supreme Court have states on edge about the future of health insurance subsidies for millions of Americans. And a summer decision from the justices leaves little time for backup planning.

Exclusive: Commerzbank nears $1.4 billion-plus settlement with U.S. - sources
5 Mar 2015 at 1:19pm

Commerzbank AG is nearing an agreement to pay U.S. authorities more than $1.4 billion to settle allegations it violated U.S. sanctions and a separate investigation that stemmed from the Olympus Corp accounting scandal, according to two people close to the case. Margarita Thiel, a spokeswoman for Commerzbank, Germany's second-largest lender, declined to comment. The U.S. Justice Department and other U.S. authorities involved also declined to comment. The other agencies include the U.S. Department of Treasury, the Federal Reserve, the Manhattan District Attorney's office, the U.S. Attorneys in Washington, D.C. and Manhattan, and New York's financial regulator, the Department of Financial Services.


Johnson & Johnson ordered to pay $5.7 million in California mesh trial
5 Mar 2015 at 1:15pm
A California jury on Thursday ordered Johnson & Johnson's Ethicon Inc unit to pay $5.7 million in the first trial over injuries blamed on the TVT Abbrevo, one of numerous transvaginal mesh products that are the subject of thousands of lawsuits. Following more than three days of deliberations in Kern County, California, jurors found Ethicon liable for problems with the TVT Abbrevo's design and for failing to warn about its risks, according to a lawyer for plaintiff Coleen Perry. The Abbrevo, one of Ethicon?s newer models of mesh products, was cleared for sale by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in 2010 to treat stress urinary incontinence.

Prenatal blood tests detect cancer signal in some women
5 Mar 2015 at 1:09pm
By Julie Steenhuysen LA JOLLA, Calif. (Reuters) - A new genetic test that sequences the blood of pregnant women for signs of diseases such as Down Syndrome in their fetuses are turning up unexpected results: a diagnosis of cancer in the mother. In as many as 40 cases, women who took Sequenom Inc's MaterniT21 test, which scans their genetic code and that of their fetus, had abnormal changes that could signify cancer. Such tests from Sequenom and other companies, sequence the mother's blood, which includes both the mother's DNA and fetal DNA from the placenta. Dr. Eunice Lee, 40, a San Francisco anesthesiologist, was one of those women.


U.S. says inaction on online piracy risks public safety
5 Mar 2015 at 12:41pm

By Krista Hughes WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. trade office on Thursday urged a crackdown on website name registrars who fail to take action against sellers of illegal goods such as counterfeit medicines and warned that turning a blind eye puts public safety at risk. The U.S. Trade Representative also said it is keeping an eye on China's AlibabaGroup Holding Ltd'sconsumer shopping website for sales of fake and pirated goods, but refrained from putting the site back on its piracy blacklist. Representatives of Alibaba, the world's largest e-commerce company, could not immediately be reached for comment. USTR named a domain name registrar, a company which manages the registration of internet names, for the first time in its annual list of so-called "notorious markets." The registrar, Canada's Tucows Inc, was one of 10 such services nominated by the Alliance for Safe Online Pharmacies, which said they ignored or supported illegal online pharmacies, for example by not blocking their activities.


Prosthetic leg stolen from California blade-runner
5 Mar 2015 at 12:27pm
A leading U.S. amputee athlete seeking to compete in next year's Paralympic Games in Brazil has been sidelined from training after his $30,000 prosthetic running leg was stolen from his car in San Francisco, he said on Thursday. The prosthesis, consisting of a carbon fiber blade and titanium, hydraulic-operated knee socket, had been specially designed to allow Ranjit Steiner to bend his right leg with human-like mechanics when he runs, he said. Steiner said he had been driving to work on Tuesday, his 24th birthday, when he realized that a rear window of his car had been smashed - apparently while parked on the street overnight in the Mission District - and he discovered that his laptop computer and prosthesis had been stolen. "There's no value to anybody who can't use this thing," he said of the artificial leg.

Jodi Arias escapes death penalty after Arizona jury deadlocks
5 Mar 2015 at 11:41am

By David Schwartz PHOENIX (Reuters) - An Arizona jury failed to reach a verdict on Thursday in the sentencing retrial of Jodi Arias after a lone juror refused to back the death penalty, a development that spared the former waitress from execution for murdering her former boyfriend. It was the second time a jury has been unable to decide whether the 34-year-old Arias, convicted of murder in 2013, should be executed for the 2008 killing of Travis Alexander. "We are hung and additional time will not change this," the foreman of the jury of eight women and four men wrote in a note read by Maricopa County Superior Court Judge Sherry Stephens, who swiftly declared a mistrial, drawing sobs from Alexander's relatives. "The real justice will be in the afterlife, when Jodi burns in hell," Alexander's sister, Tanisha Sorenson, tearfully told reporters outside the court.

The CDC estimates that there are over 20 million new cases of sexually transmitted infections every year. The majority of these new cases go untreated because they are never identified.

San Francisco hospital begins rare six-way kidney transplantchain
5 Mar 2015 at 11:26am
Doctors at a San Francisco hospital began an unusual series of kidney transplants on Thursday with six living donors providing organs to six patients in a chain that began with a woman described as an altruistic donor unrelated to any of the recipients. The first donor and recipient went into surgery at California Pacific Medical Center at 7:30 a.m., with two more donor-recipient pairs on the schedule for Thursday, then the remaining three pairs on Friday, hospital spokesman Dean Fryer said. The chain of donations began when Zully Broussard, 55, of Sacramento, whose son and husband both died of cancer, offered to donate a kidney to a friend, but the friend ultimately had to use another donor, according to hospital officials. "I'm excited, not nervous," Broussard told San Francisco?s KNTV news on the eve of surgery.

A drink a day may not be good for everyone
5 Mar 2015 at 11:22am
By Kathryn Doyle (Reuters Health) - Based on a new analysis, the health benefits of having a drink a day may be exaggerated, UK researchers say. Only women over age 65, if anyone, might get a protective effect from light drinking, compared to people who never drank, the study found. Much past research has shown that people who drink a low to moderate amount of alcohol ? about one drink per day ? fare better than both heavy drinkers and those who abstain completely.

Chain of kidney transplants begins in San Francisco hospital

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) ? The first of a series of interlinked kidney transplants involving six patients and six donors has started at a San Francisco hospital.

FBI to open field office in North Dakota's oil capital
5 Mar 2015 at 11:20am
By Ernest Scheyder WILLISTON, N.D. (Reuters) - The FBI said on Thursday it will open a field office in Williston, North Dakota, capital of the state's oil patch and an area grappling with a rise in drug use and sex trafficking. At least two agents from the FBI, the national law enforcement agency, will have jurisdiction over western North Dakota's oil counties, where the population has spiked due to the development of the Bakken shale formation, one of the world's largest reserves of crude. Williston alone has seen its population more than double since 2010 to roughly 30,000. State demographers forecast that, even with the recent dip in crude oil prices, the population will double yet again to 60,000 by the end of the decade.

Fresh coat: scientists develop tough new self-cleaning paint
5 Mar 2015 at 11:17am
British and Chinese scientists say they have developed a new paint that can be applied to clothes, paper, glass and steel to make resilient surfaces that can self-clean even after being scratched or scuffed. In research published in the journal Science on Thursday, the scientists said the paint, made from coated titanium dioxide nanoparticles, is extremely repellent to water but, unlike other waterproof coatings, continues to work even when damaged or exposed to oil. "The biggest challenge for self-cleaning surfaces is finding a way to make them tough enough to withstand everyday damage," said Claire Carmalt, a professor of inorganic chemistry at University College London, who co-led the research.
