Pervasis announces efficacy from Vascugel clinical trials


Pervasis Therapeutics presented at VEITHsymposium new efficacy data from Phase 1 and 2 clinical trials of Vascugel, a novel allogeneic cell therapy product that may restore natural repair and regeneration pathways in the vasculature. These results indicate that treatment with Vascugel improved patency and extended time to first intervention in patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD) that need permanent arteriovenous (AV) access for dialysis compared to placebo. Data also show that treatment with Vascugel resulted in accelerated vein remodelling for patients receiving an AV fistula (AVF) and increased lumen diameter for patients receiving an AV graft (AVG) compared to placebo.
