*BTI* From Benchtop to Clinical Trial: Examples of technology development. Rami Tzafriri, PhD Summary: Drawing on examples from renal denervation and other thought-leader debates at the conference, the presentation focused on several issues, including whether benchtop-to-clinical is the only path for new medical technologies, the roles and advantages of preclinical vs clinical trials in technology development, and […]
Li J, Tzafriri R, Patel SM, Parikh SA. Mechanisms Underlying Drug Delivery to Peripheral Arteries. Summary: Delivery of drugs onto arterial targets via endovascular devices commands several principles: dissolution, diffusion, convection, drug binding, barriers to absorption, and interaction between the drug, delivery vehicle, and accepting arterial wall. The understanding of drug delivery in the coronary […]
