Preclinical Research on Coronary Stent with CeloNova BioSciences' Polyzene(R)- F Nanocoating Receives Award at CIRSE 2007
Date:9/8/2007

ATLANTA, Sept. 9 /PRNewswire/ -- Celonova Biosciences, Inc. ("CeloNova"), a leading developer of innovative medical devices, today announced that the paper, "Comparison of late in-stent stenosis and vessel wall inflammation in Cypher(R) Select(TM), Taxus(R) Express(TM), and Polyzene(R)-F nanocoated cobalt chromium stents in a porcine coronary artery model" prepared by Dr. Boris Radeleff has been chosen to receive the CIRSE 2007 Magna Cum Laude EPOS Award.

"We are delighted that Dr. Radeleff has been honored by his peers for his work comparing the performance of the leading drug-eluting stents to a stent treated with CeloNova's proprietary Polyzene(R)-F medically inert surface coating," said Thomas A. Gordy, CeloNova President and Chief Executive Officer. "This award validates the high quality of the work undertaken by Dr. Radeleff and his colleagues to understand how Polyzene(R)-F can enhance the performance of coronary stents by inhibiting restenosis and thrombus formation without the need to resort to an anti-proliferative drug or long-term dual antiplatelet medications. We continue to believe, based on this and other ongoing research, that Polyzene(R)-F represents a revolutionary breakthrough in the quest to develop the ideal long-term solution for coronary stenting."

Dr. Radeleff, a physician at the University Hospital of Heidelberg, received his award at the CIRSE Opening Ceremony and Awards Session in Athens, Greece on Saturday, September 08.
