Artes Medical forms non-aesthetic microsphere technology arm:

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

San Diego, California-based aesthetic injectable products company Artes Medical has formed a new subsidiary to focus on new applications of its microsphere tissue bulking technology. Spheris Medical will develop and commercialise the technology for therapeutics uses, such as in soft tissue augmentation products. The microspheres have been assessed in preclinical studies as a bulking agent for the oesophageal sphincter to treat gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (GERD) and for the urinary sphincter to treat stress urinary incontinence. Other potential uses of the technology include spinal disc bulking and repair; sleep apnoea treatment (by bulking the soft palate and respiratory tissue); and foecal incontinence treatment.
