4,064 patients - 95.5% had a “Really Good”/“Good” experience, 96% were likely to recommend and 94% would choose HyGIeaCare® for their next prep

AUSTIN, TX, UNITED STATES, October 16, 2017 / -- HyGIeaCare Inc. today announced that a poster with data from a retrospective review of 4,064 patients who underwent pre-colonoscopy preparation with HyGIeaCare colon irrigation prep was presented today at the Annual Scientific Meeting of the ACG (The American College of Gastroenterology).

Patients who received colon irrigation preparation were asked to complete a survey online after their treatment was completed where they were asked to rate their experience with colon irrigation prep as being “Really Good, Good, Bad, or Really Bad”.

Patients ranged in age from 24 - 87 years old (mean age 62). 33% were male and 67% female.
Past medical history was significant for: Celiac = 9; Diabetes = 113; IBS = 131; Intestinal obstruction = 19; Ulcerative colitis = 37; Rectal cancer = 4.
42% of patients had a history of prior traditional oral purgatory preparation.

Patients had very good experiences with HyGIeaCare - 95.5% had a “Really Good” or “Good” experience, 96% were likely to recommend the colon preparation to a friend or colleague, and 94% would choose HyGIeaCare® for their next colonoscopy preparation.

The Poster was submitted by Harish K. Gagneja MD, Parth Parekh MD, Dawn Burleson RN, and David Johnson MD and was accepted for presentation at the World Congress of Gastroenterology at ACG 2017 taking place on October 13 – 18, 2017, at the Orange County Convention Center - Orlando, Florida. Hygieacare is exhibiting at booth #740 at this conference.

“HyGIeaCare’s patients have shared with us that our prep is very well tolerated and that they would choose HyGIeaCare® for their next colonoscopy and thus will be more likely to undergo colonoscopy and continue to adhere to recommendations for necessary repeat procedures, screening and/or surveillance.” said Gavriel (Gabi) Meron, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, HyGIeaCare Inc. " Therefore, HyGIeaCare may have a role in reducing the cost burden and patient-related risk factors associated with duplicate procedures.”
