Executive Summary

While implantable and interventional medical devices have greatly improved patient care, the materials of which these devices are made can cause unwelcome complications such as infections, blood clots and restenosis. Device coatings help to alleviate these problems, but current coating technologies are less than ideal. Semprus BioSciences aims to permanently prevent device-related complications by altering their surface architectures. The company's core technology is based on the permanent application of stable polymers and biological agents to the surfaces of medical devices to achieve desired properties. These highly biocompatible materials will mask the foreign surfaces of devices, which serve as an ideal breeding ground for bacteria or blood clots.
