InVivo Therapeutics Holdings recently announced that the company’s CEO, Frank Reynolds, is scheduled to make appearances on two television news programs. The appearances will occur on Saturday, May 19, and Sunday, May 20, on the channels KXAN-TV and WXYZ-TV, respectively.
Founded in 2005, InVivo is a Cambridge, MA-based company focused on developing technology using polymers to assist patients who are paralyzed from spinal cord injury. InVivo was founded by Robert S. Langer, ScD. Professor at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and Joseph P. Vacanti, M.D., who is affiliated with Massachusetts General Hospital. The company won the 2011 David F. Apple Award for its outstanding contribution to spinal cord injury medicine.
Reynolds will be discussing InVivo’s new polymer-based treatment that uses a scaffold to provide structural support to a damaged spinal cord, preventing the spinal cord from scarring. Reynolds will also discuss new products under development by InVivo, such as hydrogel technologies. Reynolds’ first TV appearance will be on Austin News Today Weekend, which airs on Saturday, May 19 at 7:20am CDT on KXAN-TV, the local NBC affiliate for the greater Austin, TX area. The second appearance will be on 7 Action News This Weekend, which airs Sunday, May 20 at 8:40am EDT on WXYZ-TV, the local ABC affiliate in Detroit, MI.
“Our technology is a true platform that can be leveraged to create many Neurotrauma products. InVivo is developing technologies to treat chronic injuries like Drew’s, as well as therapies for other nervous system conditions such as chronic pain due to nerve compression and other peripheral nerve injuries. We’re currently under review at FDA for our first SCI treatment, and we look forward to receiving approval to begin those human studies in 2012,” said Reynolds.
