Advanced age-related macular degeneration (wet-AMD) is the leading cause of vision loss in seniors globally.
Expensive, frequent, lifelong injections directly into the eye of anti-VEGF (anti-vascular endothelial growth factor) is the standard of care.
SAVING VISION WITH PRECISION BETA RADIATION
SalutarisMD® [SMD] is a clinical stage medical device company. SMD's BetaCurve is a globally-patented, 510(k)-cleared device designed to treat various ophthalmic diseases with precision beta radiotherapy, including PCV.
The BetaCurve™ curves around the back of the eye to precisely deliver therapeutic beta radiation to the diseased area using a fiber optic light source for placement guidance.
The procedure is a outpatient, takes 10-minutes, and requires only one treatment. Utilizing a common technique, retina surgeons do not require additional methodological training.

CUTTING EDGE DESIGN FEATURES
BetaCurve applies the well-established, therapeutic approach of low-dose beta radiation.
Our episcleral brachytherapy is an outpatient procedure using twilight anesthesia with minimal discomfort.
The individualized treatment time ensures an accurate dose of beta radiotherapy.
The retina surgeon targets the offending lesion with a precision beta radiotherapy delivery platform
A PROMISING ALTERNATIVE FOR THOSE PATIENTS WHO DO NOT RESPOND WELL TO ANTI-VEGF
Effective against classic wet-AMD, the type that primarily affects lightly pigmented individuals, especially Whites.
Improvement in vision is palliative due to underlying persistent disease activity
Requires a lifetime of injections (monthly for recalcitrant subtypes)
A temporary solution as patients often quit injections as early results fade or they develop drug resistance over time
Tremendous treatment burden due to needle anxiety, requisite frequent visits and scheduling logistics
NEW PROSPECTIVE TREATMENT:
Future pivotal trial to show efficacy against PCV, the type that primarily affects pigmented individuals, especially Asians and Blacks
Designed to reduce or eliminate underlying disease
One-time treatment may reduce or eliminate injections altogether for all subtypes
Radiotherapy may prove to be durable and last a lifetime
Minimally-invasive, one-time procedure
Saving vision for everyone
At SalutarisMD, our mission is to make treatment for AMD and other challenging retina diseases available to all, no matter the economic status or geographic location – an affordable, accessible, one-time treatment that can last a lifetime.
Frequent visits for anti-VEGF injection is not practical in many countries. One-time SMD precision radiotherapy can be made available everywhere.
