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
Volunteers and Doctors who participate in clinical trials help make new therapies a reality. Clinical trials are carefully designed research studies in humans that evaluate the safety and efficacy of an investigational therapy.
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.
