About Xtreme Touch Neo
Xtreme Touch Neo has been developed with Nanolute Technology which is a nano carrier based drug elution technology. The encapsulation technology uses biocompatible excipients where the nano particle drug in encapsulated in nano particle drug carrier. This helps the particle to penetrate in the innermost layer of the vessel wall with the reduction of the particle size.
Xtreme Touch Neo is designed by limiting drug dose, coating stability, maximise drug tissue transfer and maintaining drug efficacy over time. The lower loading dose by reducing the particulate matter, uniform coating in the inflated position, maximising drug tissue transfer through nano carrier and maintain drug efficacy over time by drug nano particle ensures encouraging results. Xtreme Touch Neo is indicated for Iliac artery, Superficial Femoral Artery, Below the Knee. It is also being applied to treat complex indications like Arteriovenous Fistula, Arteriovenous Graft. The company is awaiting for CE approval of Xtreme Touch Neo from European Competent Authority and is expected to arrive in 2018.
