The most recent Wall Street Transcript Medical Devices Report includes an interview with Valeritas, Inc.’s CEO, John Timberlake.  Timberlake discusses in detail Valeritas’s V-Go Disposable Insulin Delivery Device. The V-Go is a wearable basal-bolus insulin delivery device that allows patients to deliver insulin at a continuous preset basal rate, with bolus delivery as needed.  The V-Go has been cleared for use in the United States and in Europe.  big valThe fact that V-Go is a wearable product with scheduled insulin delivery enables patients to more easily go about their daily routines without having to stop to deliver insulin, and also allows them to discreetly deliver insulin during mealtimes without drawing attention to the act.

Valeritas is a commercial-stage medical technology company that develops new Type II diabetes technology products aimed at improving the lives of patients with Type II diabetes.  For more information about Valeritas and its V-Go product, read the full interview with The Wall Street Transcript.

Corista Logo (M0931457xB1386)Exciting news for MBBP client Corista as Johns Hopkins Medicine, one of the leading health care systems in the United States, has successfully installed Corista’s DP3 system. The DP3 is a digital pathology network platform that removes the physical boundaries from pathology and enables real-time remote expert diagnoses. It is a workflow solution integrating multiple facilities, scanners, physicians, patients and Laboratory Information Systems.

Johns Hopkins is standardizing this DP3 system as its centralized digital pathology platform in order to streamline workflows among its five hospital centers. The overall objective is to provide more efficient and accurate flow of information across core systems that manage diverse functions in the hospital system. Specifically, the system will help improve each hospital’s Tumor Board process, integration of existing systems including LIS, and global remote access.

Congratulations, Corista! MBBP serves as general counsel to Corista and assisted in negotiating its contract with Johns Hopkins. For more information, visit Corista News & Events.

Patent Attorney David FazzolareBy David A. Fazzolare

The FDA issued a press release December 3, 2012 announcing its role in a new public-private partnership aimed at expediting medical device review and approval by improving the regulatory science underlying medical device development, assessment and review. In particular, the biomedical science trade association LifeScience Alley (LSA) created the Medical Device Innovation Consortium (MDIC) as an independent, nonprofit corporation that will garner input from stakeholders, including industry, government, and other nonprofit organizations to better understand the regulatory science needs of the medical device industry and provide funding for projects that will simplify medical device design and market approval. The FDA plans to collaborate with MDIC on its supported research and projects.

For additional information, please contact David A. Fazzolare.
