Proteon Therapeutics Announces Publication in the Journal of Cardiovascular Pharmacology of Promising Nonclinical Results for Vonapanitase in Peripheral Artery Disease.
Proteon Therapeutics Inc. (Nasdaq:PRTO), a longstanding client of Biopta, is developing novel, first-in-class pharmaceuticals to address the medical needs of patients with kidney and vascular diseases. Proteon today announced publication of additional nonclinical data on investigational drug vonapanitase in peripheral artery disease (PAD). The ex vivo study demonstrated that a single treatment of vonapanitase following angioplasty of excised atherosclerotic human tibial arteries altered artery compliance. Increased compliance is known to correlate with arterial dilation.
