Symphony Medical Announces First Patient Successfully Treated With Novel Congestive Heart Failure Therapy
Date:4/14/2009

the procedure, the patient's ejection fraction, a measure of the heart's pumping ability, more than doubled, the size of his ventricle was reduced by 22 percent and his ventricle wall thickness increased by 23 percent. By day eight, the patient was able to walk unassisted. He was subsequently discharged from the hospital in a considerably improved condition.

Prof. Dr. Bauernschmitt said, "We are extremely pleased with the initial outcome of the first patient treatment with Algisyl-LVR. The administration of this implantable biopolymer to the heart wall provides a practical new tool to prevent and even reverse the dilation of the left ventricle, which is typical in congestive heart failure. As such, this new therapy has the potential to provide significant health benefits to a growing population of patients. While it is still very early, the initial outcome of Algisyl-LVR suggests that the therapy is feasible and safe while it provides immediate, tangible benefits. We look forward to treating additional patients here at the German Heart Center."

Raymond W. Cohen, Symphony Medical chief executive officer said, "As one might imagine, the physician, the patient, and all of us at Symphony are quite energized with this remarkable result. Algisyl-LVR results from years of research and an exhaustive number of pre-clinical studies which demonstrated safety and impressive efficacy. Given that congestive heart failure is a lethal and complex disease, positive pre-clinical data does not always translate into success with humans; however, it is notable that there was an excellent correlation between our pre-clinical data and the first human results. We look forward to treating more patients and establishing Algisyl-LVR as an important new therapy to increase the quality of life of patients suffering from congestive heart failure."
