Nanocopoeia Licenses New Polymer-Based Biomaterials Platform From the University of Western Ontario

ibility in the way it can be applied, while remaining totally stable. That, together with the favorable biocompatibility profile of its building blocks, makes it an ideal interface with body tissues." Dr. Puskas will participate in the joint development program.

Nanocopoeia's drug delivery and coating technology uses the proprietary ElectroNanospray(TM) process to apply nanoparticle-based coatings. The unique process, which originated at the University of Minnesota, generates nanoparticles made of drugs and polymers and assembles them into films with controllable delivery.

The National Science Foundation's research funding has played an important role in launching the collaboration. The commercial development of Nanocopoeia's ElectroNanospray(TM) technology for biomedical applications has been supported through multiple SBIR Phase II and supplemental awards from the NSF Division of Industrial Innovation and Partnerships. In the course of that research, the Company's search for novel coating polymer systems led them to Dr. Puskas, resulting in the ongoing productive collaboration. Dr. Puskas' research is supported by the NSF Division of Materials Research.

Nanocopoeia's CEO, Robert A. Hoerr, MD, PhD, said, "Based on our success in working with this polymer system, we believe it will have applicability for a broad range of biomedical uses." He further commented that a first use of the polymer has been as a prototype drug-eluting stent coating based on arborescent polyisobutylene-block-polystyrene (abbreviated arbIBS) used by the joint venture NanoInterventions for its Mouse Stent Model. He continued, "Given the strong interest that NanoInterventions' Mouse Stent Model generated at BIO, we believe the polymer will be a key element in helping us to define next generation of stent-delivered therapies."

NanoInterventions is a joint venture partnership that is launching the first rapid screening model for new coronary stent coatings, using a gen
