CytoSorbents Corporation (NASDAQ: CTSO) is a New Jersey-based, critical care immunotherapy company specializing in blood purification to control deadly inflammation in critically-ill and cardiac surgery patients. The company’s flagship product, CytoSorb®, is approved in the European Union with distribution in 43 countries around the world, as a safe and effective extracorporeal cytokine adsorber, designed to reduce the “cytokine storm” or “cytokine release syndrome” that could otherwise cause massive inflammation, organ failure and death in common critical illnesses such as sepsis, burn injury, trauma, lung injury, and pancreatitis, as well as in cancer immunotherapy. These are conditions where the risk of death and cost of treatment are extremely high, yet no effective treatments exist. CytoSorb® is also being used during and after cardiac surgery to remove inflammatory mediators, such as cytokines and free hemoglobin, that can lead to post-operative complications, including multiple organ failure. CytoSorb® has been used safely in more than 23,000 human treatments to date.
