Bio2 Medical announced the Angel® Catheter has received 510(k) clearance from the United States Food & Drug Administration (FDA). This 510(k) clearance includes a first ever, prophylactic indication for a medical device to protect critically ill patients at high-risk for pulmonary embolism (PE) and contraindicated for anticoagulation.

Dr. Luis F. Angel, the inventor of the Angel® Catheter and Chief Medical Officer at Bio2 Medical, provided the following comment regarding the importance of Bio2 Medical’s participation in the FDA’s Early Feasibility Pilot Study Program: “The Early Feasibility Pilot Program was a great opportunity to formally introduce this device to the FDA and to understand their requirements and our vision for this product. It also provided us the possibility to evaluate this device in the United States in a research environment that is proven to be the most effective and scientifically sound. In the end, this process was very beneficial to introducing a new device with a new indication and also for the FDA in learning about future products early in their life cycle.”

The Angel® Catheter provides a novel alternative to IVC filters for PE protection in a vast patient population that has historically been underserved. The Angel® Catheter features a temporary Inferior Vena Cava (IVC) filter that is permanently attached to a Central Venous Catheter (CVC), and has been designed to reduce the rates of PE-related morbidity and mortality by trapping clinically significant pulmonary emboli. The Angel® Catheter is now commercially available in the U.S.

Christopher E. Banas, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Bio2 Medical, stated, “We are excited to enter into this new commercial phase and to have the opportunity to fulfill our company’s mission to improve patient outcomes by offering our life-saving product to the American public. The transition to a successful and profitable company is fully underway with the hiring and training of a national direct sales team, led by Jeffrey Hutchison, our new Vice President of U.S. Sales. The achievement of U.S. FDA 510(k) clearance represents the successful culmination of a significant undertaking for Bio2 Medical, and we could not have done it without the faith, trust and support of our entire team, our Board of Directors and our investors who have tirelessly supported our dream and made this day possible.”
