NSVascular, Inc., a NeuroSigma Subsidiary, Signs an Exclusive License Covering UCLA's Thin-Film Nitinol (TFN) Stent Technology for Endovascular Applications
Date:7/18/2011

LOS ANGELES, July 18, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- NeuroSigma, Inc., a Los Angeles-based medical device company, today announced the formation of a majority owned subsidiary, NSVascular, Inc. and the signing of an exclusive license with the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) covering its medical applications of Thin-Film Nitinol (TFN) technology.  Nitinol is a superelastic nickel and titanium alloy with unique properties that allow deformation and subsequent full recovery of the original shape upon exposure to body heat.

NSVascular will focus on developing and commercializing TFN-covered stents for endovascular applications, with its first two applications being flow-diverting stents for intracranial aneurysms (IA) and stents for treating peripheral artery disease (PAD).

A multidisciplinary team, comprised of researchers from the UCLA Henry Samueli School of Engineering and Applied Science in collaboration with physicians from the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA, has been engaged in the development and the in vitro/in vivo testing of TFN-covered IA and PAD stents.   "For the past five years our engineering team has benefited from collaborating with a top-notch UCLA medical team, spearheaded by Dr. Dan Levi and Dr. Fernando Vinuela.  I am looking forward to working closely with the experienced management team at NeuroSigma and NSVascular in commercializing this promising technology," said Greg Carman, Ph.D., UCLA Professor of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering and a co-founder of NSVascular.

"We are very excited that NSVascular will be moving this technology through translational studies and hopefully ultimately to patients thereby benefitting both society and the economy at large," said Earl Weinstein, Associate Director of UCLA's Office of Intellectual Property.

"We are delighted to have signed our fourth license with UCLA's Office of Intellectual Property and look forward to working closely
