Meril Life Sciences has developed a drug-eluting, bioresorbable vascular scaffold that the body can slowly degrade and wash away.
The company’s MeRes100 is made of biodegradable polymers, PLLA and PDLLA. Sirolimus, a commonly-used immunosuppressant found in drug eluting stents, is embedded in the scaffold’s coating.
The company designed the struts of the device to be just 100 μm thick, while still providing the strength needed to maintain an open lumen.
