CINATRA voclosporin coated coronary stent system is an advanced cobalt chromium balloon expandable stent, mounted on a low profile rapid exchange catheter. Stent and balloon of the system are both coated with O3FA coating technology, providing a more uniform bio-absorbable delivery vehicle for its anti-inflammatory compound, voclosporin. Voclosporin is a calcineurin inhibitor and was selected for its desired anti-inflammatory properties in the vascular system.

The official title of the trial is “COronary Native Artery First in Man Investigation of ISA 247 Elution to Prevent Restenotic Mechanisms.”
