PLC Medical Systems
PLC Medical Systems, Inc., the operating subsidiary of PLC Systems Inc., is a medical device company focused on innovative technologies for the cardiac and vascular markets. PLC's lead product, RenalGuard®, is designed to rapidly remove contrast dyes that are known to be toxic to the kidneys. Contrast dyes are used in many cardiovascular diagnostic and interventional imaging procedures to facilitate the capture and display of x-ray images. Approximately 10% to 20% of patients that undergo these procedures are at-risk of developing Contrast-Induced Nephropathy (CIN), a form of acute kidney injury resulting from toxic contrast dye. RenalGuard is CE-marked and is being sold in Europe and certain countries around the world via a network of distributors. Two investigator-sponsored studies in Europe have demonstrated RenalGuard's effectiveness at preventing CIN. The CIN-RG RenalGuard pivotal study is underway in the U.S. to support a planned Premarket Approval filing with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
