- Biocon, our strategic distribution partner in India, is recruiting a dedicated sales force to sell CytoSorb® in India, and is sponsoring a September 2014 countrywide scientific symposium tour with a major CytoSorb® key opinion leader.
- On target with preparations to up-list to a national exchange later this year, with strengthening of our team through consolidation of our international and SEC legal counsel to DLA Piper.
- Continued protocol development and finalization, with plans to submit the IDE (Investigational Device Exemption) application for intra-operative usage of CytoSorb® to the FDA before the end of the year. Received validation of this treatment approach via the first published investigator initiated study using CytoSorb® therapy intra-operatively during cardiac surgery in the journal, Kardiotechnik. This retrospective study demonstrated that CytoSorb® usage led to a persistent reduction in key inflammatory markers such as IL-6 and procalcitonin in the post-operative period.
- A new sepsis research article by Dr. John Kellum and our collaborators at University of Pittsburgh was published in the journal, Critical Care, describing how CytoSorb® therapy redirects potentially dangerous activated immune cells away from otherwise healthy organs and toward the true site of infection in animals.
