SteadyPIVOT was a startup venture focused on the chemotherapeutic application for a special elastomeric pump. That pump design has been abandoned for a superior design still under development (see infusif.com), so this startup effort has been abandoned. Upon successful completion of the new design SteadyPIVOT may be revived for the purposed stated herein.
SteadyPIVOT: Relentless Oncology, Perfected
Cancer Doesn't "Let up". Neither Should You.
The Future of Cancer Therapy IV Delivery
SteadyPIVOT means Steadystate
“Persistent IV, (working) Overtime”.
SteadyPIVOT is 24/7 cancer-selective chemo, administered continuously between conventional bolus chemo administrations and other oncology interventions. This steadily pivots the patient’s recovery rate into the green for a winning cellular ecosystem to mathematically guarantee full recovery. We use FCSC identified chemo patents for the working fluid and will include potentiating integrations.
What Makes SteadyPIVOT Different?
(what's been done already)
SteadyPIVOT is very similar to metronomic chemotherapy (delivery small chemo doses parenterally over the period of multiple days). SteadyPIVOT differs by improving cancer selectivity and QOL factors which are critical to insure a continuous positive rate of recovery. Additional advantages over conventional metronomic chemo include increased fluid volume capacities, longer duration (high osmolarity) fluids, better human factors, and improved flowrate uniformity, all which are the result of a new pump setup (see “Pump IP Gets A Big Upgrade”, above).
With the expiration of a number of key patents in the last few years the cost and proliferation of disposable small silent pumps has substantially increased. These pumps have consistently demonstrated preferred status among patients due to their carefree non-electrified and silent nature.
New IP, developed largely by Infusion Scientific over that last year allows more conveniently shaped pumps with larger capacities and a much greater osmolarity range, as well as much improved flowrate uniformity.
We facilitate doing beneficial chemo integrations upfront to new chemo technologies, at negligible cost, and result in a much greater success rate (and better cost effectiveness), not to mention a shorter time-to-market. We help with a number of non-proprietary fluids which have consistently demonstrated significant benefits when recommended protocols are followed profoundly supported in over 100 different articles in peer reviewed literature. We break new testing ground by integrating these advantages up-front in the initial pre-clinical and clinical testing process.
