The WiSE (Wireless Stimulation Endocardially) electrode represents a step change in CRT for the key reason that it is already the first ever device to achieve a CE mark for implantation to the endocardium (inside) of the left ventricle.

Adalta Moves to Inhaled Delivery for AD-214

Biologics drug development company Adalta (1AD: $0.09) has announced that its lead drug candidate, AD-214, will now be developed as an inhaled drug rather than a systemically delivered injected therapy.

The key reason for the change is that preclinical imaging studies with a radiolabelled version of AD-214 showed high accumulation levels (more than half the administered dose) in the liver. The reasons for strong binding affinity in the liver are unknown at this point, but it is not related to the i-body platform with the rapid distribution to the liver seen only with this drug candidate.
