ICU Medical's ChemoClave™ System Included in Mobius Therapeutics' Mitosol® Kit for Use in Glaucoma Surgery
Date:6/7/2012

SAN CLEMENTE, Calif.  and ST. LOUIS, June 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- ICU Medical, Inc. (NASDAQ: ICUI) and Mobius Therapeutics, LLC today jointly announced that ICU Medical's ChemoClave™ system for the safe handling of hazardous drugs will be packaged with Mobius Therapeutics' Mitosol® kit, an FDA-cleared drug used in ophthalmic surgery containing the active ingredient Mitomycin-C, which is cytotoxic and listed on NIOSH Hazardous Drug List. By incorporating ChemoClave components into the kit, clinicians will be able to reconstitute Mitosol on the surgical field, improving shelf life and consistency of the delivered drug, without changing current surgical technique. Both the ChemoClave system and the Mitosol kit can be seen at the upcoming American Society of Health System Pharmacists (ASHP) Summer meeting in Baltimore, MD June 10-12, 2012.

"Although the use of mitomycin in eye surgery has been well established by medical literature, the compound is highly unstable and can present a hazard to doctors and nurses in the operating room when preparing the drug," explained Mobius Therapeutics President Ed Timm. "By incorporating the ChemoClave system into the Mitosol kit, we can minimize potential hazards for clinicians in the operating room and provide patients with a product that is consistent, assuredly sterile, and assuredly potent since it is mixed using the completely closed, sterile ChemoClave system."
