BRIEF TECHNOLOGY DESCRIPTIONS FOR COMPANIES COVERED


•1-Easy-to-use, wrist-worn activity monitor that records all movement, not just steps and 2-A social and rewarding group activity program to track daily movement against a group goal
•1-Electro-optic technologies and analytic methods that rapidly detect and quantify bacteria in fluids in real-time and 2-A family of instruments that provide screening for urinary tract infections (UTIs)
•1-Minimally invasive spinal fixation device for spinal fusion as an alternative to pedicle screw fixation; 2-Polyether ether ketone interbody cages for use in spinal fusion procedures; and 3-Stand-alone cervical and lumbar systems
•1-Proprietary delayed-release formulation of the most prescribed diabetes medicine in the world, Metformin and 2-Over-the-counter (OTC) products for weight loss and pre-diabetes
•Camera-enabled needle technology to fundamentally improve orthopedic diagnostics and therapeutics by enabling instant and accurate office-based procedures
•Cryogen-based Global Endometrial Ablation (GEA) technology to quickly and safely achieve tissue ablating temperatures in a single-use, self-contained, hand-held device
•Devices for overactive bladder (OAB)
•Devices for the treatment of female infertility caused by fallopian tube dysfunction
•Dry powder formulations for various therapeutic molecules, including: antibiotics, corticosteroids, nucleic acids, and insoluble and soluble molecules
•Ganaxolone, a neurosteroid to treat children and adults suffering from refractory epilepsy, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and fragile-X syndrome
•Immunotherapeutic agents for the treatment of cancer, viral infections, and inflammatory and autoimmune diseases
•Implantable meniscus replacement and regeneration device
•Implantable technology for direct delivery of therapeutic compounds to the site of brain injury
•Implants for unmet needs in the treatment of mitral valve disease, with applications in percutaneous catheter-based intervention and minimally invasive or open-heart cardiac surgery
•Intrauterine device (IUD) inserter that vastly simplifies the insertion procedure, while significantly reducing the complications inherent with current insertion techniques for female contraceptives
•Microprocessor-based, disposable intravenous (IV) injection port for automated recordkeeping in the perioperative period and the subsequent retrieval and analysis of that data to improve patient safety
•Minimally invasive catheter-based system that allows physicians to create an arterio-venous fistula to deliver hemodialysis to patients suffering from kidney failure
•New business model for the clinical development and registration of pharmaceutical products, to accelerate the availability of new and innovative drugs into the world's major markets
•New drug for treating adrenal cancer
•Non-invasive oximeter for the quantitative measurement of cerebral tissue oxygen levels to enable clinicians to identify and quickly react to dangerously low brain oxygen levels, as well as monitor the oxygenation of other tissues, such as muscle and abdominal tissues in newborns
•Non-invasive solutions to dramatically improve in vitro fertilization (IVF) outcomes
•Non-pharmacologic and non-systemic treatment for psychiatric and neurologic illnesses
•Oral histone deacetylase (HDAC) inhibitor that inhibits cancer-relevant HDAC enzymes, which contribute to epigenetic alterations driving cancer growth and drug tolerance
•Oral testosterone (T) replacement product
•Pipeline of antibody agents directed to costimulatory targets for the treatment of cancer
