Quotes

Akbulut explains why optimal contact is not achieved through current technology. "If you look at the very fine scale, [these two pieces] are not smooth. If you look at these with an electron microscope, you see they are like mountains. If you bring these surfaces together, they do not have perfect contact." Thus, the objective of a traditional TIM is not fully met
...50. Ross Silver, Principal Analyst at Vista Partners, stated, "According to the Company, CytoSorbents' flagship product is CytoSorb® which targets the treatment of life-threatening illnesses in the intensive care unit, such as sepsis, Ebola, trauma, burn injury, and many others where excessive inflammation can be deadly. CytoSorb® is the only specifically approved extracorporeal cytokine filter approved for sale in all 28 countries of the European Union and in countries that accept CE Mark approval. CytoSorb® has the potential to revolutionize critical care medicine; save lives, and reduce cost. CytoSorb® and the other products in the Company's pipeline may have significant upside, considering the massive markets they seek to address. The Company has received validation of their technology from many large organizations including: Biocon, DARPA, U S Army, U S Air Force, NIH/NHLBI, scientific advisors & analysts. The Company enjoys a unique, high margin product and pipeline with little to no current competition."
"The students I observe, it’s very hard for them to walk up to a stranger and have a conversation with them.”"
Dr. J Joseph Kim, Inovio's president and CEO, said, "Monoclonal antibody technology has already achieved multiple market-proven product successes, and we believe DNA-based mAb technology could significantly extend the medical benefits and efficiency of this concept. In previous preclinical studies our DNA-based mAbs demonstrated robust virus neutralization and protected treated animals challenged with a lethal virus. We look forward to working with our globally recognized collaborators to advance this potentially paradigm shifting technology."
