"The data presented today show that MST-188 reduced aggregation of both older and younger RBC(red blood cells), with a greater effect on older RBC. If adverse clinical outcomes following transfusion are the result of increased RBC aggregation in the microcirculation, MST-188 may offer an option to improve the efficacy of transfusion. We are conducting additional preclinical studies in this area, with the goal of helping to improve treatment options for the 4.5 million people who, in the U.S. alone, receive a transfusion each year."
MST-188 is a cytoprotective, hemorheologic, anti-inflammatory and antithrombotic agent that has potential utility in diseases or conditions characterized by microcirculatory insufficiency (endothelial dysfunction and/or impaired blood flow)."
