Our Mission

Turn the “golden hour” into the “golden day” – Our research data suggest that the PEG-20k IV solution could increase the time that a patient can safely stay in the low volume state after a massive hemorrhage 10 times longer than with conventional IV solutions. And research efforts have shown impressive potential for other indications such as sepsis, cardiac arrest, and TBI. We are dedicated to taking PEG-20k through clinical trials and the regulatory approval process so it can be used to save lives!
