The trial is designed to assess the safety and preliminary efficacy of the Neo-Urinary Conduit in up to 10 patients, as well as to allow the clinical investigators to optimize the surgical procedure and post-surgical care by incorporating the outcomes observed in each patient into the surgical approach for subsequent patients, as necessary.

According to the U.S. Renal Data System, the annual Medicare cost of hemodialysis is $77,000 per patient and approximately 100,000 ESRD patients die in the U.S. each year. Tengion scientists have published and presented positive data on the effect of the Company's approach on kidney function in four different preclinical models of CKD. Two of these preclinic
