PENtech Infusions (Boothwyn, Pennsylvania), a provider of renal nutritional support for dialysis patients and support services for pain and spasticity management, reported it has changed its name to Pentec Health. The new name was reported at the annual meeting and Scientific Exposition, Renal Week 2006, of the American Society of Nephrology (Washington) at the San Diego Convention Center.

The company said the new name better communicates its mission of delivering clinical solutions for chronic illnesses. It said impetus for the change is the development of a team focused on a science-driven approach to intradialytic parenteral nutrition and intraperitoneal parenteral nutrition therapy.
