Cell Seeding Technology for Implantable Cardiovascular Devices
Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death in the United States. Cell Seeding Technology is developing cutting edge technology that, using only a sample of blood, can create personalized medical devices that are specific to individual patients. By coating cardiovascular implants (stents, heart pumps, etc.) with the patient’s own cells, we create a bio-compatible medical device that prevents the body’s immune system from recognizing and attacking the foreign implant. This innovative technology will significantly reduce the incidence of serious implant-related complications, including heart attack, stroke, and death.
