TherOx Completes Financing as It Prepares for AMI Therapy System Launch
SSO2 Therapy is intended to reduce infarct size by boosting oxygen delivery to the heart muscle immediately after the coronary artery has been opened by PCI. The TherOx SSO2 Therapy system delivers a one-time, 60-minute infusion of superoxygenated blood to the coronary arteries after standard-of-care treatment for heart attack has been completed.
SSO2 Therapy is intended to provide interventional cardiologists with the first treatment option beyond PCI to salvage heart muscle in heart attack patients. Although PCI is the standard of care in treating AMI, for many patients it doesn’t sufficiently reduce infarct size to achieve maximum clinical benefit. Adjunctive to PCI, SSO2 Therapy is intended to salvage heart muscle and reduce infarct size.
