With no FDA on-label treatment for PCV available, SalutarisMD is the first company to seek FDA market approval to treat PCV.

THE MARKET LANDSCAPE
Currently, we estimate the majority of afflicted seniors go untreated or under treated.
Of those treated, up to 60% suffer inadequate results due to their subtype, which is often PCV.
SMD plans to address this treatment failure with BetaCurve.
Our upcoming pivotal study will establish efficacy for PCV.
In addition, BetaCurve's one-time, 10-minute procedure may prove to be the only alternative for those who can't afford or access frequent and ongoing injections.
Historically, PCV has gone undetected in the U.S.
Recent advances in imaging technology are driving a new awareness.
PCV is now part of the ophthalmology curriculum at top universities.
A different approach that changes the outlook
In early 2022, SalutarisMD will commence a pivotal study to receive FDA on-label approval for the indication of PCV, the first of several indications that can be treated with our device.
Disease activity is charaterized by abnormal fluid and blood leakage at the back of the eye from undesirable capillary growth.
The first year requirement is 8-12 anti-VEGF injections and continues indefinitely. Up to 60% suffer inadequate results after the first year and will stop treatment altogether.
The arteriolized vessels are largely unaffected by anti-VEGF. Repeated injections never fully eliminate the root cause.
White people typically suffer from classic wet-AMD that can be treated effectively with ongoing anti-VEGF monotherapy.
HIGH RISK EYES
Asian and Black people are more likely to suffer from the PCV sub-type of wet-AMD that does not respond well to anti-VEGF monotherapy.
BETACURVE GIVES HOPE
The BetaCurve™ is designed to treat all types of patients. The mechanism of action of beta radiation on neovascularization has been studied for over 50-years.
