ABOUT CARDIUM: OVERVIEW
Cardium Therapeutics is a health sciences and regenerative medicine company focused on the acquisition and strategic development of new and innovative bio-medical product opportunities and businesses with the potential to address significant unmet medical needs that have definable pathways to commercialization, partnering and other economic monetizations. Cardium's current medical opportunities portfolio includes the Tissue Repair Company, Cardium Biologics, and the Company's newly-acquired To Go Brands healthy nutraceutical supplement business. The Company's lead commercial product Excellagen® topical gel for wound care management, has FDA clearance for marketing and sale in the United States. Cardium's lead clinical development product candidate Generx® is a DNA-based angiogenic biologic intended for the treatment of patients with myocardial ischemia due to coronary artery disease. To Go Brands develops, markets and sells dietary supplements through established regional and national retailers.
The Company's business model is designed to create multiple opportunities for success while avoiding reliance on any single technology platform or product type, and to leverage Cardium's skills in late-stage product development in order to bridge the critical gap between promising new technologies and product opportunities that are ready for commercialization. Consistent with our long-term strategy, we continue to pursue cost-effective acquisitions with strong value enhancement potential as our product opportunities and businesses are advanced and corresponding valuations established. We intend to consider various corporate development transactions designed to place our product candidates into larger organizations or with partners having existing commercialization, sales and marketing resources, and a need for innovative products. Such transactions could involve the sale, partnering or other monetization of particular product opportunities or businesses.
