 PENNSAUKEN, N.J., April 13 /PRNewswire/ -- MEDIQ Incorporated


(AMEX: MED) said today that it and Kinetic Concepts, Inc. (NASDAQ: KNCI) (KCI) had terminated all litigation between the two companies.
 In March 1990, MEDIQ brought an action in U.S. District Court in Philadelphia seeking damages and other relief against KCI, relating to its acquisition of Medirec, a competitor of a MEDIQ subsidiary, MEDIQ/PRN Life Support Services, Inc.
 KCI, in December 1991, filed suit in U.S. District Court for the Western District of Texas seeking an injunction against the pending proposed merger of ATI Medical, Inc. of Las Vegas with MEDIQ/PRN.
 Both suits were terminated with prejudice. There were no monetary settlements.
