BioTime (BTX) Announces Agreement To Develop Hextend And PentaLyte In Japan


10/19/2005 5:10:53 PM

BERKELEY, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec. 30, 2004--BioTime, Inc. (AMEX:BTX) announced today that it has entered into an agreement with Summit Pharmaceuticals International Corporation, an affiliate of Sumitomo Corporation, to develop Hextend(R) and PentaLyte(R) for the Japanese market. Hextend and PentaLyte are physiologically balanced blood plasma volume expanders designed for the treatment of hypovolemia. Hypovolemia is a condition caused by low blood volume, often from blood loss during surgery or from injury. Plasma volume expanders maintain circulatory system fluid volume and blood pressure and keep vital organs perfused during surgery. Hextend and PentaLyte are similar formulations, except that PentaLyte contains a lower molecular weight hydroxyethyl starch than Hextend, and is more quickly metabolized. PentaLyte is designed for use when shorter lasting volume expansion is desirable.
