HyGIeaCare’s patent covers a system for treatment and/or diagnosis utilizing a colon irrigation system together with novel analytical features
AUSTIN, TX, UNITED STATES, September 28, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — HygieaCare Inc. announced today that the USPTO has notified the Company that on October 3rd its US Patent application will be issued as USP Number 9775865. The patent relates to systems for characterization of the contents of the large intestine and treatment of conditions of the large intestine.
The patent covers a system for treatment and/or diagnosis of a condition in a patient's large intestine utilizing a colon irrigation system and an analysis module configured in a certain manner, together with additional novel analytical features including an acoustic array to listen to the colon for noise mapping and potential identification of conditions, a camera to enable visual diagnosis based on excretions, and therapeutic infusion of donor stool, autologous stool or other therapeutic compounds based on the analysis of excreted stool. Also covered under this patent is a stool bank for large intestine contents' samples from patients performing colon irrigation, associated with derived microbiome characteristics of these samples.
Since inception in 2015 HyGIeaCare has established HyGIeaCare Centers providing bowel preparation without all the associated side effects of the current preparation and with consistently high cleanliness rates. More than 5,000 patients have performed the prep with 97% of them having an adequately clean colon, with ZERO severe adverse events and excellent patient and physician feedback. This technology is now being increasingly implemented in a growing number of leading GI groups in the US. With increasing adoption, HyGIeaCare will establish a Platform upon which additional patented offerings can be stacked, enhancing the value of each Center while creating higher barriers of entry.
“This patent allows HyGIeaCare to potentially be a unique player in the field of microbiome research aimed at providing new diagnostic and therapeutic paths for diseases in the population,” said Gavriel Meron, Chairman and CEO of HyGIeaCare. “This paves the path for HyGIeaCare to consistently gather stool samples for microbiome analysis from regions in the GI tract that currently cannot readily be sampled.”
