ADVTX - Artificial platelets

Fibrinoplate-S is the premiere artificial platelet product from Advanced Therapeutics (ADVTX).

As a third generation product, Fibrinoplate-S is cost-effective and available in a suspension formulation ready for intravenous administration. The Company intends to explore various indications for Fibrinoplate-S in the near future. More
