CorFlow Presents Fundamental New Insights into the Coronary Microcirculation at ACC


CorFlow Therapeutics AG ( today announced that the company will present fundamental new insights into the coronary microcirculation during the annual meeting of the American College of Cardiology (ACC) in Orlando, FL, March 10-12, 2018.

CorFlow has since its foundation in June 2016 worked to document that the Controlled Flow Infusion (CoFITM) technology is able to measure the coronary microvascular status and provide therapy to the compromised coronary microcirculation at the same time. Microvascular obstruction (MVO) affects more than half of the acute heart attack patients and is an independent predictor for complications including heart failure which constitutes a high cost burden for the world-wide health care system. To address this large unmet medical need in interventional cardiology, CorFlow has developed an in-vivo model which reproducibly creates MVO in an occlusion-reperfusion model with very low complication rates. Using this in-vivo model, the CoFITM technology was used to measure real-time dynamic microvascular resistance (dMVR) in the coronary circulation and these dMVR values were correlated to post-procedure contrast enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and histology. A correlation between the procedural CoFITM dMVR values and post-procedural MRI will enable treatment of MVO before the patients leave the cathlab and potentially reduce the complication rates for severe heart attack patients.

In a comment, Dr. Renu Virmani, an internationally renowned cardiovascular pathologist and co-author of the histology poster, stated: "These findings suggest that the fundamental effects of a human heart attack have to be reconsidered. Our findings show that MVO in acute heart attacks can be created without the presence of thrombi. The results furthermore show that minute reductions in coronary volume flow causes an exponential collapse of the coronary microcirculation and that epicardial revascularization alone is not sufficient to open the collapsed coronary microcirculation. If these findings hold true in our upcoming investigations, we will have to fundamentally rethink the comprehensive treatment of an acute heart attack with attention to the microvasculature as well as the major epicardial vessels."

Jon H. Hoem, CorFlow's CEO and co-Founder, commented: "We are very pleased that our in-vivo results have been accepted for publication during the important ACC conference and look forward to discuss these results with cardiologists attending the conference."

The data from the CorFlow non-clinical trials will be used in the upcoming submissions for the CorFlow MOCA I (MVO with CoFI™ System Assessment I) First-in-Man clinical trial.

LIAF: Experts at the European Parlament - E-Cigarettes Are a Potential Game Changer for European Health20.3.2018 21:27Tiedote

The following is a statement from LIAF – Lega Italiana Anti Fumo: The panel discussion at the EU Parliament recognises the potential benefits of electronic cigarettes and for European countries to treat these products as regular consumer products to ensure equal access for all Europeans. Following a debate in which leading scientific experts presented the state-of-the-art evidence around e-cigarettes, it became clear that public health is increasingly moving on from an approach that solely advocates ‘quit-or-die’ to a harm reduction strategy. “I’m glad to have brought the Parliament attention to this important issue for public health. Today we have listened to the results of scientific studies and researches from a high-level expert’s roundtable, which have illustrated to us the advantages of electronic cigarettes and the potential public health benefits that these products pose when compared to the conventional cigarettes. As decision-makers, we need to take into considerations these

Morinaga Milk's New Probiotic Strain, Bifidobacterium breve A1, May Prevent Onset of Alzheimer's Disease20.3.2018 21:00Tiedote

Morinaga Milk Industry Co., Ltd. (TOKYO:2264), a leading Japanese dairy product company, today announced the results of a new study investigating the preventive effects of its new probiotic strain Bifidobacterium breve A1 on a model of Alzheimer’s disease. Researchers found that B. breve A1 improved spatial recognition capability, as well as learning and memory capabilities, in cognitively deficient mice, indicating it could play an important role in preventing the onset of Alzheimer’s Disease in humans.1 This press release features multimedia.

Dubai Breaks Ground on World’s Biggest CSP Project20.3.2018 19:10Tiedote

HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, broke ground on the 4th phase of the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park. This is the biggest Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) investment project in the world, based on the Independent Power Producer (IPP) model, and will generate 700MW on a single site. It will have the world’s tallest solar tower at 260 metres, and the largest thermal energy storage capacity in the world. It will provide clean energy to 270,000 residences, reducing 1.4 million tonnes of carbon emissions annually. The project will use two technologies: a 600MW parabolic basin complex and a 100MW solar tower, over 43 square kilometres. This project, with AED14.2 billion in investments, achieved the lowest Levelised Cost of Electricity (LCOE) of USD 7.3 cents per kW/h. This press release features multimedia.
