New Chronic Wound Therapy Awarded at Texas' Largest Life Science Event

SAN ANTONIO, May 24, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- An advisory board of industry leaders at the 2012 Texas Life Science Venture Forum in Houston, Texas namedTransCU O2®, a cutting-edge therapy for chronic wounds, one of ten Most Promising Life Science Technologies.  Over 60 companies were invited to present their research and innovations to hundreds of early-stage investors, venture capitalists, and industry leaders.

This award represents another important achievement for Electrochemical Oxygen Concepts (EO2), the maker of the TransCU O2®.  The company has also recently received recognition by the Department of Veterans Affairs.  EO2 CEO Michael Wells says he and his team are honored by the accolades.

"Patients suffering from chronic wounds and their physicians have long been in need of a better therapy to treat their condition," said Wells. "This award from the Texas Life Science Venture Forum further confirms that TransCU O2® is a ground breaking therapy with the ability to improve the health and lives of patients who suffer with difficult-to heal wounds."

The TransCU O2® is a simple-to-use and easy-to-administer therapy that provides a continuous supply of low-dose pure oxygen to treat a variety of wound types such as venous leg ulcers, diabetic foot ulcers, and pressure ulcers.  Oxygen-based therapies have been proven effective in treating chronic wounds but current therapeutic approaches do not allow for 24-hour a day wound treatment.  The TransCU O2® device is lightweight and fully portable.  Its advanced technology allows for the constant monitoring and automatic flow adjustments necessary for the delivery of optimum therapeutic oxygen flow to the wound site.

The Texas Life Science Venture Forum is a joint effort between the Rice Alliance of Technology and Entrepreneurship, BioHouston, and the Texas Healthcare and BioScience Institute and part of the three-day Texas Life Science Conference.  The conference is the most comprehensive showcase of cutting-edge research and innovative entrepreneurs in the state.  Hundreds of investors, entrepreneurs, successful business people and industry leaders attended to learn about, evaluate and network with the presenting companies.
