Kidney Failure is the 8th leading cause of death in USA

Those who think they have not time for bodily exercise will sooner or later have to find time for illness.~Edward Stanley

But even the best of these years are filled with pain and trouble;soon they disappear, and we are gone

Article from Business Week and Bloomberg News:

First couple paragraphs:

A wearable artificial kidney and two other devices to treat renal failure will get fast-track reviews under a program U.S. regulators say can cut the time it takes to get “breakthrough” medical technology to market.

The Food and Drug Administration chose the three devices -- a valve system, an implant and the artificial kidney -- from 32 applications competing to be in the expedited-review program, the agency said in a statement today. The FDA proposed the Innovation Pathway, a priority review process for “new, breakthrough medical devices,” in February 2011.
