HyGIeaCare today announced that a poster with data from a prospective randomized blinded comparative study showing significant equivalence measured as average Boston Score results of the HyGIeaCare Prep System compared to the standard split-dose PEG will be presented at the upcoming Digestive Disease Week (DDW).

DDW will take place May 16 – 19, 2015, at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center, Washington DC. Hygieacare will be exhibiting at booth #2310 throughout the conference. (http://www.hygieacare.com )

“The Poster relates to 104 patients that were enrolled in a prospective, randomized and blinded comparative study performed by a team led by Professors Gerard Gay and Michel Delvaux in the University Hospital of Strasburg, France and came to the conclusion that the same-day prep alternative was as effective as the split-dose of PEG for bowel cleansing before colonoscopy with a median Boston Score of 7.3 in both arms of the study,” said Gavriel (Gabi) Meron, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, HyGIeaCare Inc. "This data supports our launch of building out HyGIeaCare Centers to provide same day prep to patients referred with a prescription by our collaborating GI partners."

Hygieacare will be exhibiting at booth #2310 throughout the conference, and will have information available about the Company's Hygieacare Centers. Gastroenterologists interested in collaborating by referring their patients to a HyGIeaCare Center close to their endo centers will have the opportunity to register at the Booth.
