About Virtue® SEB
Virtue SEB is a novel, first-in-class drug/device combination product that delivers sustained-release bioabsorbable encapsulated sirolimus, a proven drug for preventing restenosis, directly to the artery during balloon angioplasty without the need for a coating. Virtue SEB’s ability to reliably deliver sirolimus via bioabsorbable sub-micron particles with a drug elution profile comparable to commercially available drug-eluting stents has been demonstrated in extensive preclinical studies published in a peer-reviewed journal.1 Virtue SEB is the first and only non-coated sirolimus-eluting angioplasty balloon system to receive FDA Breakthrough Designation for below-the-knee stenosis as well as for coronary in-stent restenosis (ISR), another challenging indication for which the product has shown promising 3-year core-lab adjudicated efficacy and safety clinical results in the SABRE trial. Orchestra BioMed and Terumo plan to execute a global clinical program to gain regulatory approval for commercial sale of Virtue SEB in multiple markets and indications including coronary ISR and below-the-knee stenosis.

About BackBeat CNT
BackBeat CNT, a flagship therapy of Orchestra BioMed, is a bioelectronic treatment that immediately, substantially and chronically lowers blood pressure (BP) while simultaneously modulating the Autonomic Nervous System (ANS). Orchestra BioMed’s CE Mark-approved Moderato® implantable pulse generator system delivers BackBeat CNT while also providing standard pacemaker functions. BackBeat CNT mimics the effects of multi-drug hypertension therapy by targeting preload, afterload and sympathetic tone. BackBeat CNT’s initial target are patients with uncontrolled hypertension who are also indicated for a pacemaker.
