New Data on GeNO LLC Nitric Oxide Delivery System to be Presented at ISHLT Conference Next Week

(Biotechnology News Today) - GeNO LLC today announced that data on the NITROSYL Delivery System during Right Heart Catheterization (RHC) in subjects being evaluated for Orthotopic Heart Transplantation (OHT) and Left Ventricular Assist Device (LVAD) implantation has been selected for oral presentation at the International Society for Heart & Lung Transplantation (ISHLT) Annual Meeting in Prague, Czech Republic on April 19, 2012.

The primary aim of the study is to evaluate the safety, tolerability and device performance of the GeNO NITROSYL Delivery System during RHC. Secondary considerations are to confirm that inhaled NO generated by the system reduces pulmonary vascular resistance (PVR) in patients with reversible pulmonary hypertension and contains levels of Nitrogen Dioxide (NO2) well below the upper level of acceptable exposure.
