Cardium's InnerCool Announces First Patient Treated With New Tissue-Specific UroCool(TM) System in Robotic-Assisted Prostate Surgery Study

ssisted technique) offers the potential to reduce tissue damage and inflammation and thereby provide a faster return of bladder control (continence) and possibly erectile function (potency) following surgery.

"We are pleased to be working with one of the nation's experts in the field of robotic-assisted prostate surgery. Last month we announced the licensing of this technology from the University of California, Irvine and our plans to submit a regulatory application for FDA 510(k) clearance in first quarter 2009," stated Christopher J. Reinhard, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Cardium Therapeutics and InnerCool Therapies. "This research could potentially provide important data highlighting the enhancement of patient recovery following prostate surgery. With more than 70% of radical prostatectomies being performed robotically each year, urologic surgeons are considered early adopters of new technologies, and we believe that UroCool has the potential to become an important new improvement for the field."

Previous findings by the researchers using localized manual cooling techniques during robotic-assisted radical prostatectomy surgery indicated that cooling resulted in a significantly faster recovery of urinary continence following surgery. Based on these early positive results using manual cooling techniques, InnerCool's UroCool Catheter, which used in conjunction with its Celsius Control Console, improves the ease of use and provides more cooling power which may potentially further enhance clinical outcomes. It is believed that additional ongoing studies may offer the potential to demonstrate improved post-operative erectile function for patients as well. Drs. Ahlering and Finley's clinical data on hypothermic radical prostatectomy was recently presented with an award at the European Robotic Urologic Symposium in Prague and their findings are now being published as a Rapid Review in the medical j
