First Use in Coronary Patients of a Combined Near-Infrared Spectroscopy and Ultrasound Imaging Catheter
Date:5/19/2009

addition of IVUS to our FDA cleared LipiScan(TM) catheter provides a novel tool that we believe will assist physicians with the complex decisions they face in the management of patients with coronary artery disease."

Live patient case to be broadcast at EuroPCR Conference this week

On Wednesday, May 20, Dr. van der Ent will be performing a live case with the combined catheter from the Thoraxcenter for the EuroPCR Conference taking place this week in Barcelona, Spain from May 19 - 22, 2009.

About The LipiScan(TM) Coronary Imaging System

The LipiScan(TM) Coronary Imaging System is a catheter-based device that uses laser light to detect how much fat and other substances are contained in a plaque. The identification of the chemical composition of coronary plaques is expected to be of initial value to cardiologists in efforts to improve the safety of stenting procedures, and selection of intensity of lipid altering therapy. The longer-term goal of identification and management of lipid core plaques is to prevent the occurrence of acute coronary syndromes. The device is also expected to be of value to the pharmaceutical industry as a means to assess the effect of novel anti-atherosclerotic agents on lipid core plaque burden.

About InfraReDx, Inc.

InfraReDx, Inc. is a science-based medical device company with expertise in technologies useful for characterization of coronary plaques. The company first developed a system utilizing near-infrared spectroscopic (NIRS) technology to identify plaque composition. It has now developed IVUS technology to provide complementary information about the structure of plaques. The company, located in Burlington, Mass., was founded in 1998 to meet the unmet medical need for detection and identification of lipid core containing plaques of interest in the coronary arteries.
