XVIVO is pleased to announce an application to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for an exemption from research device (IDE) requirements.

This is in accordance with the previously announced FDA breakthrough designation of XVIVO Cardiac Technology, a non-ischemic heart preservation device (NIHP). At pre-application meetings, XVIVO worked constructively with FDA to discuss issues and concerns and used FDA feedback to determine next steps for its IDE application.
