CAMBRIDGE, Mass. (June 26, 2013) - InVivo Therapeutics Holdings Corp. (NVIV), a developer of groundbreaking technologies for the treatment of spinal cord injuries (SCI) and other neurotrauma conditions, today announced that CEO Frank Reynolds is scheduled to appear live in New York City on Fox News Channel’s “Tech Take” on Thursday, June 27th. “Tech Take” is hosted by anchor Adam Housley and airs on Thursdays at 1:00pm ET.
InVivo Therapeutics has pioneered a treatment that uses a biocompatible polymer-based scaffold to provide structural support to a damaged spinal cord in order to spare tissue from scarring while improving recovery and prognosis after traumatic SCI. Recently, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) granted two approvals to the Company, the first for Humanitarian Use Device (HUD) designation, which the Company believes will expedite the product’s path to market, and the second to approve the Company to begin a first-in-man clinical trial of the technology. On the show, Reynolds will discuss the product and the upcoming pilot study, as well as the platform the Company has built for developing new options for a wide range of conditions.
Adam Housley joined Fox News Channel in 2001 as a Los Angeles-based correspondent. Recently, Housley covered the Japanese earthquake and tsunami, reported in both English and Spanish during the Chilean Miners rescue and, earlier in 2010, reported live from Haiti after the deadly earthquake.
Fox News Channel airs locally on channel 841.
