Symposium at Angioplasty Summit TCT Asia Pacific 2008 Features OrbusNeich's Genous(TM) Bio-engineered R stent(TM)
Date:4/22/2008

HONG KONG, April 22 /PRNewswire/ -- OrbusNeich's Genous Bio-engineered R stent will be featured at a sponsored symposium during Angioplasty Summit TCT 2008 Asia Pacific.

The symposium, which will take place on April 23 at the Convention Center of Sheraton Grande Walkerhill Seoul Hotel in Seoul, Korea, includes:
-- "Opening Address" by Seung-Jung Park, the symposium's chairperson, from

12:30 p.m.-12:35 p.m.

-- "Endothelial Progenitor Cell Capture Technology and Beyond" by Michael

Kutryk from 12:35 p.m.-12:50 p.m.

-- "TRIAS HR Pilot Study Long Term Follow-up" by Robbert de Winter of the

Academic Medical Center, Amsterdam, from 12:50 p.m.-1:05 p.m.

-- "HEALING AMI" by Harry Suryapranata from 1:05 p.m.-1:20 p.m.

-- "Q&A Followed by Closing Remarks" by Seung-Jung Park from

1:20 p.m.-1:30 p.m.

"Recent data has highlighted the need for a safer alternative to drug-eluting stents," said Seung-Jung Park. "The data we have seen from both the TRIAS HR Pilot study and the registries underline Genous' superior safety profile with regards to late stage thrombosis."

Unlike drug-eluting stents, Genous, which is coated with an antibody, captures a patient's endothelial progenitor cells (EPCs) to accelerate the natural healing process. EPCs circulate in the bloodstream and are involved in the repair of blood vessels. When attracted to the surface of Genous, EPCs rapidly form an endothelial layer over the stent that provides protection against thrombus and minimizes restenosis.

OrbusNeich designs, develops, manufactures and markets innovative medical devices for the treatment of vascular diseases. The company's product portfolio includes the Genous Bio-engineered R stent, an antibody-coated device that is the first-ever stent to capture a patient's endothelial progenitor cells (EPCs) to accelerate the natural healing process following placement. Other products are stents, balloons and guiding catheters marketed under the names of Blazer(TM), R stent(TM), Sapphire(TM), Avita(TM), Avita HP(TM), SafeCut(TM), Lumina(TM) and Saffron.

A global company, OrbusNeich is headquartered in Hong Kong and has operations in Fort Lauderdale, Fla.; Hoevelaken, The Netherlands; Tokyo; and Shenzhen, China. OrbusNeich, which has provided cardiology devices to physicians through its predecessor companies since 1979, today supplies products to interventional cardiologists in more than 60 countries.
