Stents are high tech endovascular implants. K&M Inc. is the single Eastern European stent producer company. The market needs more biocompatible devices as the trend of the stent development all the producers have to react. The other members of a R&D consortium is research institutions deals with diamond-like and drug-eluting coatings for decade. These biocompatible coatings can avoid the metallic stent surface to directly contact to the living tissues. This way a biologically active drug connected to the surface can be delivered directly to the diseased vessel wall. The Cardiovascular Institution has the clinical facility to test the new products. This group of applicants is obliged to develop, test and put on the market the new generation biocompatible coated stents.
