Aria CV Wants to Offer a Device Option for Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension
Aria CV is venturing into a space that few medtech companies have gone before. The St. Paul MN-based company is developing an implantable device to tackle Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension (PAH), a disease that is mostly treated with pharmaceuticals. Earlier this week, the company raised $31 million in a series B round to help fund an early feasibility study in the U.S. for the Aria CV Pulmonary Hypertension System (Aria CV PH System). The series B round was led by Xeraya Capital. Also participating in the financing were Longview Ventures, Catalyst Health Ventures, BioStar Ventures, Cedar Point Capital, Frontcourt Group, and...

Gene Therapy for Mesothelioma Has ‘Real Potential’
Gene therapy is moving closer to becoming part of standard-of-care treatment for pleural mesothelioma, according to the latest multicenter clinical trial. The phase III trial, known as the INFINITE clinical research study, is designed to evaluate the intrapleural delivery of an investigational drug — a type of gene therapy — in combination with celecoxib and gemcitabine, anti-inflammatory and chemotherapy drugs, respectively. Researchers hope to stop, or at least slow, the growth of mesothelioma tumor cells with the combination therapy. “This is a very interesting concept,” oncologist Dr. Bernardo G...
