Transcend Medical Raises $35 Million Series B Round Towards Development of Novel Glaucoma Treatment
Date:6/22/2009

MENLO PARK, Calif., June 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Transcend Medical, Inc., an ophthalmic device company dedicated to delivering breakthrough advances in the treatment of glaucoma, announced today that it has closed a $35 million Series B round and is continuing the rapid development of its Transcend CyPass(TM) System, a novel proprietary system for the minimally-invasive treatment of glaucoma.

Lead investor HLM Venture Partners, along with other new investors Canaan Partners, Technology Partners and Latterell Venture Partners made significant contributions to this round of financing, which was also strongly supported by current investors Morgenthaler Ventures and Split Rock Partners.

"Completing this round is a testament to the progress of our technology and a strong validation of its potential to impact the future of glaucoma treatment," said Brian Walsh, President and Chief Executive Officer of Transcend Medical. "We are now well-capitalized to accomplish all initial clinical and commercial milestones for the company."

The Transcend CyPass System is being developed to both replace current glaucoma therapies, which either lack effectiveness or are very invasive, and to expand treatment to a much larger patient population. Transcend Medical is focused on a less invasive procedure using a novel, proprietary system that reduces intraocular pressure (IOP).
