To date the drug is used in more than 500 hospitals in Russia, ~3000 patients already treated. Drug proved its safety and is 3-5 times more effective than any other treatment. Artgen is developing improved version of Neovasculgen. The difference between two drugs is a small mutation that is responsible for mRNA half-life time, while active molecule and mechanism of action is exactly the same. This change was made to increase patent lifetime and potentially efficacy to make the project attractive for US market. Please contact for more information
