PLC Systems Files IDE Supplement to Begin Pivotal Study of RenalGuard(TM) and Provides Update on Planned Development Timeline
Date:2/15/2008

FRANKLIN, Mass., Feb. 15 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- PLC Systems Inc. (Amex: PLC) announced today that it has submitted an Investigational Device Exemption (IDE) supplement with the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) for its RenalGuard Therapy(TM) and RenalGuard System(TM).

This trial design builds upon the successful completion of the company's pilot trial in December, a study that was designed to preliminarily evaluate safety associated with Renal Guard Therapy and RenalGuard System. A total of 23 patients were enrolled in the study.
