rk to rapidly expand the use of Celacade within the European Union."

"We are firmly committed to the success of Celacade in Europe," commented Dr. Carlos de Lecea, Vice President International and Business Development at Ferrer. "We are very pleased that the initial orders are from sites who participated in the ACCLAIM study, which we believe reflects the clinical benefits of Celacade and the feedback the physicians received from patients."

About Celacade:

The Celacade System targets the inflammation underlying chronic heart failure and other cardiovascular diseases. Inflammation is a normal response of the immune system to cellular injury caused by infection, trauma, or other stimuli. During the inflammatory process, immune cells release a number of factors, including cytokines - potent chemical messengers that modulate inflammation and facilitate the healing process. While this inflammatory process is usually self-limiting, it can persist, become chronic, and lead to a number of serious medical conditions.

During a brief outpatient procedure, a small sample of a patient's blood is drawn into Vasogen's Celacade single-use disposable cartridge and exposed to controlled oxidative stress utilizing Vasogen's proprietary Celacade medical device technology. Oxidative stress is a factor known to initiate apoptosis, a physiologic process that is inherently anti-inflammatory. The treated blood is then administered to the same patient intramuscularly. An initial course of treatment comprising three consecutive outpatient procedures is administered over a two-week period, and treatments are continued once per month thereafter.
