CytoSorbents Launches New International CytoSorb® Therapy Product Website
Wednesday March 11, 2015
MONMOUTH JUNCTION, N.J., March 11, 2015 - CytoSorbents Corporation (NASDAQ CM: CTSO), a critical care immunotherapy company commercializing its CytoSorb® extracorporeal cytokine adsorber to treat critically-ill and cardiac surgery patients in multiple countries worldwide, announced the international launch of its new CytoSorb® Therapy product website.
Available in English at http://www.cytosorb.com and in German at http://www.cytosorb-therapie.de, visitors can learn why CytoSorb® represents one of the most promising technologies to help control deadly inflammation in hospitalized patients, with the goal of saving lives and reducing the exorbitant costs of medical care.
Geared towards physicians and other healthcare professionals, the website explains how CytoSorb® safely reduces cytokines, toxins, and other inflammatory mediators as a proactive strategy to reign in an out-of-control whole body immune response that otherwise frequently leads to organ failure and death in common life-threatening conditions such as severe sepsis and septic shock, lung injury, trauma, burn injury, liver failure, and pancreatitis.
Users can also learn about how CytoSorb® Therapy is being applied intra-operatively and post-operatively in cardiac surgery in order to try to prevent or treat post-operative complications such as kidney injury, lung failure, and a maladaptive post-op SIRS (systemic inflammatory response syndrome) response.
The website hosts a wealth of centralized information, including:
We cordially invite medical professionals to sign up for our periodic CytoSorb® newsletter in the lower banner of the website.
- Information on CytoSorb® - its mechanism of action, the scientific rationale behind why and how it is being used, technical data on the technology, and physician testimonials
- A detailed focus on the growing number of enrolling clinical trials and investigator-initiated studies using CytoSorb® in a wide variety of applications, with many more on the way
- Literature references and detailed summaries of recently published peer-reviewed case reports and other studies, with the intent of teaching physicians how CytoSorb® Therapy is being successfully used today
- A description and link to the International CytoSorb Registry, a Good Clinical Practice (GCP) quality repository for CytoSorb® treatment data from all over the world
- A calendar of medical conferences, company-sponsored research symposia, and exhibitions where healthcare providers, distributors, and strategic partners can meet and talk with the company
- A list of distributor contact information so that interested physicians worldwide can find out how to order CytoSorb®
- Contact information of our direct sales team and customer support and service
About CytoSorbents Corporation
CytoSorbents Corporation is a critical care focused immunotherapy company using blood purification to control severe inflammation -- with the goal of preventing or treating multiple organ failure in life-threatening illnesses. Organ failure is the cause of nearly half of all deaths in the intensive care unit, with little to improve clinical outcome. CytoSorb®, the Company's flagship product, is approved in the European Union and marketed in 29 countries around the world, as a safe and effective extracorporeal cytokine adsorber, designed to reduce the "cytokine storm" that could otherwise cause massive inflammation, organ failure and death in common critical illnesses such as sepsis, burn injury, trauma, lung injury, and pancreatitis. These are conditions where the risk of death is extremely high, yet no effective treatments exist. CytoSorb® is also being used during and after cardiac surgery to remove inflammatory mediators, such as cytokines and free hemoglobin, which can lead to post-operative complications, including multiple organ failure.
CytoSorbents' purification technologies are based on biocompatible, highly porous polymer beads that can actively remove toxic substances from blood and other bodily fluids by pore capture and surface adsorption. CytoSorbents has numerous products under development based upon this unique blood purification technology, protected by 32 issued US patents and multiple applications pending, including HemoDefend™, ContrastSorb, DrugSorb, and others.
