BOSTON, Sept. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Scimitar Equity Research, Inc. (Scimitar) today issued a review on Arbios Systems, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: ABOS) entitled: "Enhancing the Recovery of Patients with Life Threatening Episodes of Liver Failure". The analyst research review is available on Scimitar's website: http://www.scimitarequity.com .
About the SEPET(TM) Liver Assist Device
The SEPET(TM) Liver Assist Device is a sterile, disposable cartridge containing microporous hollow fibers with proprietary permeability characteristics. When a patient's blood is passed through these fibers, blood plasma components of specific molecular weights are expressed through the micropores, thereby cleansing the blood of harmful impurities (i.e., hepatic failure toxins as well as various mediators of inflammation and inhibitors of liver regeneration). These substances would otherwise progressively accumulate in the patient's bloodstream during liver failure, causing hypotension, increasing risk of sepsis development and accelerating damage to the liver, lungs and other organs, including the brain and kidneys, and suppressing the function and regeneration of the liver. SEPET(TM) is designed for use with standard blood dialysis systems available in hospital intensive care units.
