CEDAR KNOLLS, N.J., March 10, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- MYOS RENS Technology Inc. ("MYOS" or "the Company") (NASDAQ: MYOS), a bionutrition company and the owner of Fortetropin®, a proprietary bioactive composition made from fertilized egg yolk that helps build lean muscle, announced today that it has entered into an agreement with KVP International, Inc. ("KVP") (www.kvpvet.com), a leading supplier of innovative products for the veterinary rehabilitation market such as surgical supplies, recovery collars and braces.
KVP will distribute, consult, and co-market with MYOS for its MYOS Canine Muscle Formula®, Regular and Vet Strength (collectively, "MYOS Canine"), an advanced nutrition product that has been clinically shown to increase muscle mass, prevent atrophy of disuse and improve recovery from injury and surgery.
"KVP is a leading supplier of high-quality products for the animal rehabilitation market," stated Joseph Mannello, CEO of MYOS RENS Technology. "Some of their products such as Saf-T-Shield™ animal recovery collars and KONG® toys and treats are sought after by veterinarians and dog owners around the world. We believe KVP's reach into over 10,000 veterinarian practices and buying groups will create new customers for MYOS' canine products," Mannello added. "We will also work with KVP to build our direct-to-consumer business working with their team and jointly marketing our products with theirs. KVP's years of experience in these markets as well as their incredible customer relationships will help us to rapidly grow our business."
"At KVP, we're constantly looking for new, innovative, and unique product offerings for our partners and customers," said Ken Bowman, CEO and President of KVP, "and MYOS Canine Muscle Formula® represents just that– a clinically proven product that creates and extends quality of life for its users. MYOS Canine Muscle Formula is a great complimentary product to the work we're already doing in rehabilitation and recovery, and we're excited to build on our experience in the industry to help MYOS revolutionize this space."
In 2019, at the North American Veterinary Conference in Orlando, FL, MYOS released the results of the Kansas State University canine clinical study on dogs that consumed MYOS Canine Muscle Formula following tibial plateau leveling osteotomy (TPLO) surgery to repair tears of the cranial cruciate ligament (CCL). After eight weeks, dogs who underwent the surgery and consumed MYOS Canine Muscle Formula experienced reduced muscle atrophy and improved recovery compared with dogs that received a macronutrient-matched placebo. Since the study results were released, MYOS has initiated another clinical study at Kansas State University to examine the impact of MYOS Canine Muscle Formula on quality of life and activity in geriatric dogs.
