NEW YORK – May 22, 2020 – Daxor Corporation (NYSE MKT: DXR), an investment company with innovative medical instrumentation and biotechnology operations focused on blood volume measurement, today announced that blood volume outcome data has been published in the scientific journal, Circulation, utilizing Daxor’s BVA-100 blood volume measurement device to determine the primary endpoint of the study, Empagliflozin in Heart Failure: Diuretic and Cardio-Renal Effects, at Yale University. The results further validate the important role of changes in blood volume and plasma volume status and its contribution to the superior long-term heart failure (HF) outcomes.
“We are pleased to see the outcome of Yale’s research in patients with heart failure. The BVA-100 is the gold standard and Yale’s study shows the relevance of our technology for cutting-edge research as well as clinical use; the better outcomes from lowering blood volume are concordant with Daxor’s claims for helping HF patients with accurate and actionable volume measurement guided therapy,” commented CEO, Michael Feldschuh.
The novel study titled “Empagliflozin in Heart Failure: Diuretic and Cardio-Renal Effects” explored how sodium-glucose cotransporter-2 inhibitors (SGLT-2i’s) could mechanistically improve heart failure (HF) related outcomes, an ongoing area of research as the precise mechanism of benefit has not been clear from prior studies. Mathew Griffin, M.D., was the lead investigator along with Jeff Testani, M.D. of Yale, who demonstrated the benefits of Empagliflozin in HF patients by lowering blood volume without neurohormonal activation. Emplagozin is a novel SGLT-2 inhibitor that has shown benefit for HF treatment.
Blood volume and plasma volume in patients was measured with Daxor’s rapid BVA-100 diagnostic blood test. The BVA-100 utilizes the gold standard method to provide accurate, actionable data to optimize treatment plans and individualize care for HF patients.
