Table of Contents


•The d-OSAB platform technology, used to treat ischemic stroke by delivering a precise, measured dose of oxidative stressor and comprising a monitoring system that determines the amount of stressor absorbed as well as a disposable device that maximizes contact with the fluid or blood
•A proprietary drug delivery platform that uses human Alpha-Fetoprotein (AFP) to deliver selective chemotherapy, avoiding damage to normal cells
•The Hemolung Respiratory Assist System, a respiratory dialysis product comprising a contoller, cartridge, and catheter; intended to replace or supplement mechanical ventilation in Intensive Care Unit (ICU) patients with acute hypercapnic respiratory failure
•Nanotechnology-based Point-of-Care products for the collection and screening of blood, urine, or oral fluids
•1. Vascular staplers for open surgery of abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAAs) or aorto-biliac/femoral bypasses 2. Endovascular staplers for fixation of any current stent-grafts 3. Staplers for Critical Limb Ischemia surgery, aiming to replace Femoro-Popliteal bypasses
•Ultrasound-guided cryothermally enhanced devices used to facilitate the site-specific C(2) (Cryo-Chemo) Cancer Ablation Procedure, which delivers newly developed proprietary therapies to cancer sites while avoiding toxic side effects
•A three-layered biological patch, called the LeucoPatch, which can be derived without additives from the patient's blood within 20 minutes; used for chronically non-healing and debilitating wounds
•The ViSi Mobile System, a comprehensive vital signs monitoring platform for bedside, ambulatory, or transport applications
•The CoolTools family of products, which target support/microcatheterization, local vascular drug delivery, and selective hypothermia for the treatment of ischemic brain injury (e.g., stroke, cardiac arrest, trauma)
•Intraurethral devices including a prostatic urethral stent and a urethral measurement device to enable the selection of proper stent sizes
•Biological therapies targeting bone loss, blood and muscular weakness disorders, cancer, and rheumatoid arthritis
•Corneal inlay for the treatment of near vision loss
•Therapeutics aimed at cellular targets in cancer metabolism, e.g., IDH1, IDH2, and PKM2
•Therapeutic antibodies discovered and optimized using somatic hypermutation (SHM)
•Offers technologies for drug delivery systems, including complex release products, fast-dispersing dosage forms, and biodegradable polymers for custom release profiles in implants
•Targeted nanoparticles that selectively accumulate at disease sites and minimize the damage to healthy tissues for the treatment of cancer, cardiovascular conditions, and inflammatory diseases
•Develops polymer composite products for biomedical applications, including clear braces for orthodontic patients
•A continuous glucose monitoring device
•Diagnostic assays for joint fluid analysis; these technologies use a lateral flow immunoassay designs and are used to rapidly detect the causes of joint pain
