launching Celacade in Europe before the end of the year.
- Today we announced that a recently published book,
"Immune Dysfunction and Immunotherapy in Heart Disease," discusses
the Celacade System for the treatment of heart failure. The chapter
entitled "Anti-inflammatory therapy in heart failure," describes how
the growing understanding of the role inflammation in heart failure
has led to new treatment modalities and describes the potential of
Celacade to target this underlying pathology. The authors of the
chapter describe the mechanism of action of Celacade and review the
results of the ACCLAIM trial. Regarding the results of the trial, the
authors state: "These findings are consistent with the role that
chronic inflammation plays in the development and progression of HF
and are particularly impressive in the large subgroup of
NYHA Class III or IV patients who had not experienced a prior heart
attack and in all NYHA class II patients. These results provide a
strong basis for targeting Celacade's novel anti-inflammatory
mechanism in this large and well-defined patient population."
