"As our trials progress and our unique technology reach important milestones, it is important for us to expand our talent pool in product development, research and operations.

GeNO is currently developing a unique nitric oxide generation and delivery technology named NITROSYL™ that will help address the cost, complexity and lack of portability of current inhaled nitric oxide treatment regimens for a multitude of diseases, and would potentially reach a much larger group of patients. GeNO is developing three nitric oxide delivery platforms: a stand-alone gas cylinder system for hospital and outpatient use, a ventilator-based platform for Intensive Care Unit use, and a flashlight-sized ambulatory system for chronic outpatient use. The company is currently performing two Phase 2 trials: one, as a Pilot Study in Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension (PAH) and a second dose-escalation trial for the Treatment of Pulmonary Hypertension in patients with PAH and Pulmonary Hypertension secondary to Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis (PH-IPF). Additional study details can be found on -- Identifiers NCT01092559 and NCT01265888.
