FDA Grants Market Clearance for the LipiScan(TM) Coronary Imaging System Developed by InfraReDx, Inc. - A Novel Spectroscopy System for the Identification of Lipid Core Containing Plaques of Interest in the Coronary Arteries
Date:4/29/2008

BURLINGTON, Mass., April 29 /PRNewswire/ -- InfraReDx, Inc. announced today that it has received 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to market its catheter-based LipiScan(TM) Coronary Imaging System. The LipiScan device uses near-infrared spectroscopy to identify lipid core containing plaques of interest in the coronary arteries in patients already undergoing cardiac catheterization. Such plaques, which cannot be detected by commonly used tests such as a treadmill examination and even coronary angiography, are suspected to be the cause of most sudden cardiac deaths and non-fatal heart attacks.

The availability of this novel tool culminates a decade-long biomedical engineering effort to create an instrument that could perform spectroscopy in the arteries of patients with coronary artery disease. The identification of the chemical composition of coronary plaques is expected to be of value to cardiologists in the selection of medical, stenting or surgical therapy for coronary lesions. The device is also expected to be of value to the pharmaceutical industry as a means to assess the effect of novel anti-atherosclerotic agents on lipid core plaque burden.

"The InfraReDx team is pleased that the LipiScan System has been validated in tissue samples and a clinical study and has been cleared by the FDA for use in patients. We understand the great potential of interventional cardiology and anticipate that this novel tool will assist physicians with the complex decisions they face in the management of patients with coronary artery disease," says James E. Muller, M.D., cardiologist, co-founder, President and CEO of InfraReDx, Inc.

Dr. Muller noted that the creation of this novel device was greatly aided by the support and expertise of Sanderling Ventures of San Mateo, California. "Robert McNeil, Ph.D., Chairman of the Board of InfraReDx, and Timothy Mills, Ph.D., InfraReDx Board member are managing directors of Sanderlin
