Participation in the creation of new companies (spinoff), development, use and commercialization of patents

The undersigned Prof Alfredo Galassi, who has done several research projects with the aid of the intracoronary ultrasound energy system for the unblocking of coronary chronic total occlusions (Galassi AR, SD Tomasello, Costanzo L, Campisano MB, Marza F, Tamburino C. recanalization of complex coronary chronic total occlusions using the highfrequency vibrational energy CROSSER catheter as first-line therapy: a single center experience. J Interv Cardiol 2010; 23: 130-38.) has participated as principal investigator, to the drafting of a nonprofit protocol called “Cardioprolific for the interventional treatment of de novo coronary lesions and small-vessels whose development has been approved by the Ethics Committee for clinical trials of Cannizzaro, with the resolution N.2559 dated 22/10/2013. Specifically, the protocol states that the ultrasonic energy is employed in combination with the topical intracoronary administration of an antiproliferative drug in patients with stent restenosis or with de novo coronary lesions in coronary arteries with less than 2.25 mm diameter. Based on these studies and researches the Cardioprolific Inc Reno, NV, USA has developed and has approved in quality of Assignee the Patent No: US 9,375,223 B2 dated June 28, 2016, for the application of such a device in the coronary and vascular field.
