Nerve fusion technology combined with our unique drug delivery device and specialized microsurgical instruments form our NTX-001 Kit.
A novel nerve fusion system for repairing severed peripheral nerves.
NTX-001 is a kit comprised of nerve fusion technology and a specialized device intended for use during surgical nerve procedures.
The technology in our kit is designed to restore electrical signaling across a severed peripheral nerve intra-operatively, thus preventing Wallerian degeneration in axons distal to injury.
PEG-FUSION is the application of a polyethylene glycol (PEG) using a combination of sequenced reagents to a freshly performed nerve coaptation, or neurorrhaphy, to allow the axonal membranes of the proximal and distal axonal stumps to fuse back together and re-establish full axonal continuity.

Neurorrhaphy is the surgical suturing of a divided nerve.
PEG-FUSION in combination with standard neurorrhaphy is superior in improving functional outcomes following peripheral nerve injury compared to standard neurorrhaphy
NTX-001 has been developed as a surgical product to be used in conjunction with standard suture neurorrhaphy of a severed nerve. Use of NTX-001 is intended to safely accelerate the often slow and diminished return of function in repaired nerves.
