VERO Biotech Announces First Patient With COVID-19 Infection Complicating Pulmonary Hypertension Treated with GENOSYL DS, the First and Only FDA-Approved Tankless System for the Delivery of Inhaled Nitric Oxide
March 26, 2020
VERO Biotech LLC, an Atlanta, Georgia-based biotechnology company focused on saving lives, alleviating suffering, and improving the health economics of care, today announced that the first patient with COVID-19 infection complicating pulmonary hypertension has been treated with its proprietary inhaled nitric oxide (iNO) delivery system, GENOSYL® DS at home. The patient was treated under an emergency IND filed by a qualified Investigator and approved by the US FDA.
“Treating patients at home with a tankless system to deliver iNO represents a new paradigm in the management of pulmonary hypertension,” said Michael Gentile, RRT and Vice President of Medical Affairs, Vero Biotech.
The patient was also treated with oxygen via nasal canula and was carefully monitored remotely by clinicians, avoiding hospitalization and more intensive respiratory support.
“Application of VERO’s tankless inhaled nitric oxide system at home under physician supervision is particularly critical during a time of crisis when hospital beds and ventilators are in short supply,” said Brent V. Furse, President and CEO, VERO Biotech.
GENOSYL is indicated to improve oxygenation and reduce the need for extracorporeal membrane oxygenation in term and near-term (>34 weeks gestation) neonates with hypoxic respiratory failure associated with clinical or echocardiographic evidence of pulmonary hypertension in conjunction with ventilatory support and other appropriate agents.
