Sacramento Medical Device Startup Signs Letters of Intent To Build System for Helping Kids With Cystic Fibrosis
On Monday, Asthma & Allergy Prevention -- a medical device startup in Sacramento --said that it has signed a letter of intent with heating-cooling contractor Beutler to develop a home purification system aimed at preventing lung infections in children with cystic fibrosis. The startup also has signed a letter of intent with HTA Science & Engineering -- a Sacramento engineering design firm -- to work on the system. Asthma & Allergy Prevention officials say that the company soon will ask FDA for a "humanitarian device exemption," which would streamline the approval process for the system.
