Cardiovascular Surgery Detailing Preclinical and Clinical Evaluation of SETALIUMTM Vascular Sealant

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 18 maggio 2019

TISSIUM, a privately-owned life science company developing fully synthetic, biomorphic programmable polymers, announced today the publication of its manuscript detailing preclinical and clinical evaluations of SETALIUMTM Vascular Sealant, the company’s first synthetic, biodegradable, on-demand, light-activated sealant.The results of these evaluations, published in The Journal of Cardiovascular Surgery on May 10th, 2019, ultimately showed that SETALIUM™ Vascular Sealant has good biocompatibility, good bioresorption, and a beneficial safety and efficacy profile.SETALIUMTM Vascular Sealant is a new synthetic on-demand, light-activated poly (glycerol sebacate) acrylate (PGSA), and pre-clinical and clinical studies were designed to assess the biocompatibility of this product, as well as its performance in living subjects. Pre-clinical trials included three successful large animal studies during which open vascular carotid and aortic reconstruction surgeries were performed. With these promising results, clinical trials were initiated in patients requiring carotid endarterectomy using an ePTFE patch.Biocompatibility testing demonstrated that standard clinical doses of the SETALIUMTM Vascular Sealant, and 40 times that dose, did not induce any significant toxic reaction. Animal studies produced excellent performance and safety data.Clinically significant hemostasis was achieved in 100% of the animals across carotid and aorta studies. In clinical studies, immediate hemostasis was achieved in 84% of cases with no device-related adverse events reported.As a result, the SETALIUM™ Vascular Sealant showed good biocompatibility, and an acceptable safety profile. In human trials, it was shown to be a safe and effective option that can achieve fast hemostasis in vascular carotid reconstructions.
TISSIUM is a privately-owned life sciences company based in Paris, France that is dedicated to the rapid development and commercialization of a unique biopolymer platform to address various unmet clinical needs.The company’s platform is based on a proprietary polymer family with unique properties including the ability to conform to, and integrate with, surrounding tissue to enable natural healing. Furthermore, the modular design of the polymers enables customization to match tissue-specific requirements for different therapeutic areas. The company also develops delivery and activation devices for enhanced performance and usability of its family of polymers.

Frost & Sullivan Comment by Automotive & Transportation Consultant, Vitaly Belskiy

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 30 marzo 2012

Warsaw “If you want to prosper in the current automotive market environment (especially when it comes to the highly competitive premium segment), you need to be able to make bold decisions. Opening a new plant for successors of compact A and B-class cars in Hungary and offering four instead of two models is the clear long term move (construction of the plant has started in 2008) to strengthen Daimler’s position (MB-Cars’ share of A/B-class sales has dropped from 20 per cent in 2008 and 2009 to 18 per cent in 2010 and further 14 per cent in 2011) in a relatively price sensitive compact car segment. Combined with leveraging cheaper labour, it goes in line with Daimler’s plans to achieve both its profitability target (a rather impressive 10 per cent by 2013), an ambitious 1.6 mln sales mark by 2015 (compared to 1.27 mln in 2008). The question is, however, will Daimler manage to keep production flexible as the European auto industry is facing challenging times in terms of demand for new cars. Increasing the share of temporary workers in Eastern Europe can become a viable solution which will allow adjustments to changing demand for new orders. The solution is not new and this is something, which Daimler is looking at in Germany, or Fiat in Poland. Local production will also help Daimler to grab a stronger foothold in the promising Eastern European market, the potential of which is still to be unveiled.“

Lifting border controls

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 11 giugno 2010

Bruxelles. Bulgaria and Romania have moved a step closer to having their border checks with the borderless Schengen area lifted. A Council decision that both comply with data security requirements for joining the “Schengen Information System” border control database was approved by the Civil Liberties Committee on Thursday. Parliament is consulted on both countries’ accession to the Schengen Information System (SIS), the sophisticated database used by border control agents to exchange information in the fight against crime and illegal immigration. A report by Carlos Coelho (EPP, PT) approving the Council decision, which is the first step towards lifting the border checks, was approved in committee with 36 votes in favour, 1 against and 3 abstentions. An evaluation working group had verified that Bulgaria’s and Romania’s branches of the SIS system (which are not yet connected to the central database), ensure satisfactory levels of data protection and came to a positive overall conclusion, thus opening the way for further tests. These tests are to begin before the end of the year, says the Council Decision approved by the committee.
