“Millions of people each year die of life-threatening inflammatory conditions such as sepsis and infection, influenza, trauma, liver failure, lung injury, cytokine release syndrome in cancer immunotherapy, and complications of surgery, that we can help treat,” stated Dr. Chan. “Our blood purification adsorber, CytoSorb®, is approved in Europe and designed to help control the ‘fuel to the fire’ of deadly inflammation by filtering a broad range of cytokines, toxins, and other inflammatory mediators from blood. CytoSorb has already helped save many lives in now more than 35,000 human treatments.”
Dr. Chan continued, “The BIO CEO & Investor Conference attracts a broad range of quality healthcare and life science investors. As we target operating profitability on a quarterly basis this year, and as we execute on our pivotal REFRESH 2 trial designed to support U.S. FDA approval for CytoSorb in cardiac surgery, we believe our rapidly emerging growth story will resonate with the investment community.”

About CytoSorbents Corporation (NASDAQ: CTSO)
CytoSorbents Corporation is a leader in critical care immunotherapy, specializing in blood purification. Its flagship product, CytoSorb® is approved in the European Union with distribution in 44 countries around the world, as an 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. These are conditions where the risk of death is extremely high, yet no effective treatments exist. CytoSorb® is also being used during and after cardiac surgery to remove inflammatory mediators that can lead to post-operative complications, including multiple organ failure. CytoSorbents recently initiated its pivotal REFRESH (REduction in FREe Hemoglobin) 2 trial – a multi-center, randomized controlled, clinical trial intended to support U.S. regulatory approval of CytoSorb for use in a heart-lung machine during complex cardiac surgery to reduce organ injury. CytoSorb® has been used in more than 35,000 human treatments to date.
CytoSorbents’ purification technologies are based on biocompatible, highly porous polymer beads that can actively remove toxic substances from blood and other bodily fluids by pore capture and surface adsorption. Its technologies have received non-dilutive grant, contract, and other funding of nearly $22 million from DARPA, the U.S. Army, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, the National Institutes of Health (NIH), National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI), U.S. Special Operations Command (SOCOM) and others. The Company has numerous products under development based upon this unique blood purification technology, protected by 32 issued U.S. patents and multiple applications pending, including CytoSorb-XL™, HemoDefend™, VetResQ™, K+ontrol™, ContrastSorb, DrugSorb, and others.
