T3 Labs is committed to excellence in translational research including preclinical cardiovascular research. After all, our program leaders are scientists, too.

This is most recently evident in the journal article “Vasomotor Function Comparative Assessment at 1 and 2 Years Following Implantation of the Absorb Everolimus-Eluting Bioresorbable Vascular Scaffold and the Xience V Everolimus-Eluting Metallic Stent in Porcine Coronary Arteries” published in Journal of the American College of Cardiology: Cardiovascular Interventions. (JACC-CI)

This study on bioresorbable vascular scaffolds was conducted over a four year period involving scaffold implant in the coronary arteries, serial quantitative coronary angiography (QCA), intra-vascular ultrasound (IVUS), studying in vivo and ex vivo vasomotor function,  tissue characterization via histology and gene microarray. The in-vivo and in-life work was conducted at T3 Labs along with other aspects of the study that were facilitated by trained T3 staff.

We look forward to collaborating with our sponsors on studies such as these that result in meaningful data, and allow continued development of novel medical devices.
