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

tain aneurysms.  Last month, in support of continuing pre-clinical trials at UCLA, NeuroSigma entered into a contract with UCLA to fund the development of prototype TFN-covered stents for use in upcoming human trials.

Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD) Stent

Ten million Americans suffer from PAD, a common circulatory problem in which narrowing of arteries can lead to a reduction in blood flow to the limbs and a possible precursor to amputation or death from heart attack and stroke.

The license with UCLA also includes the use of TFN-covered stents for the treatment of PAD.  Since 2009 under an NIH Challenge Grant, UCLA has been conducting in vivo pre-clinical trials to demonstrate that its TFN-covered stents may eventually be used for the treatment of PAD by remaining patent even in vessels as small as 3 millimeters.  A unique surface treatment of UCLA's TFN film provides super-hydrophylic properties, which greatly reduces the adherence of platelets.

CAUTION: NSVascular's TFN-covered stents are investigational devices and at this time are limited by United States law for investigational pre-clinical use only.
