Pluromed, Inc. Signs Agreement with Boston Scientific
Date:10/8/2009

Boston Scientific to distribute Pluromed's BackStop™ device, a rapid phase transition gel used in the treatment of Kidney Stones.

Woburn, Massachusetts (PRWEB) October 9, 2009 -- Pluromed, Inc. has announced that it has entered into an alliance with Boston Scientific Corporation (NYSE: BSX) regarding Pluromed's BackStop™ product, a device used in ureteroscopic kidney stone management procedures. Boston Scientific has acquired the worldwide distribution rights to BackStop. The financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

Kidney stone disease is estimated to affect millions of people worldwide. A common method of treating these stones is intracorporeal lithotripsy where the stones are fragmented using a laser or other energy modality in a minimally invasive procedure. Backstop™ is based on Pluromed's proprietary Rapid Transition Polymers™ (RTP™) that are liquid at low temperature and transition to a gel at body temperature; the transition is reversible via cooling and the gel is completely dissolvable. The BackStop gel forms a plug above the stones in the ureter and is designed to prevent stone migration during the procedure. After stone fragmentation is complete, the gel is dissolved with saline and exits the body. The BackStop product offers the potential to reduce operating time and complexity, and improve "stone free" rates for patients.

"We are very pleased to work with with Boston Scientific," said John Merhige, Pluromed's Vice President of Market Development. "BSC is the market leader with the resources and expertise to get the BackStop product into the hands of urologists." The BackStop device is approved for sale in Europe, Canada and the United States.

Jean-Marie Vogel, Pluromed's CEO, said, "This alliance represents an important event in the evolution of Pluromed. The proceeds from the agre
