About CytoSorbents Corporation
CytoSorbents Corporation is a critical care focused therapeutic device company
using blood purification to treat life-threatening illnesses commonly seen in
the intensive care unit such as sepsis and infection, influenza, severe lung
injury, trauma, burn injury, and pancreatitis. Its purification technology is
based upon biocompatible, highly porous polymer beads that can efficiently
remove toxic substances from blood and other bodily fluids. The Company's
flagship product CytoSorb^®, a first-in-class extracorporeal cytokine filter
compatible with standard hemodialysis machines, has achieved European Union CE
Mark regulatory approval and is now being commercialized in Europe. The goal
of the CytoSorb^® cytokine filter is to prevent or treat multiple organ
failure, the leading cause of death in the intensive care unit, by reducing
the excessive production of cytokines, or "cytokine storm", that could
otherwise lead to deadly inflammation, organ injury, and death. Organ failure
represents one of the most serious unmet medical needs in modern medicine,
claiming millions of lives around the world, at a cost of tens of billions of
dollars, each year. By actively addressing one of the most important
underlying causes of organ failure, CytoSorb^® represents a potentially
revolutionary advance in the treatment of critical illnesses.

CytoSorbents has been awarded $5 million in contracts from both DARPA and the
US Army, and continues to invest significantly in its research and development
pipeline. One of its most advanced products under development is HemoDefend,
a blood purification technology platform for the blood transfusion industry
intended to reduce transfusion reactions and improve the safety of "old" blood
by removing many substances, such as antibodies, free hemoglobin and
inflammatory mediators that can cause potentially serious and sometimes fatal
transfusion reactions.

CytoSorb^® and HemoDefend are just two of a number of different polymers the
Company has developed for various medical applications, including improved
dialysis, reduction of post-surgical complications in cardiac surgery,
treatment of inflammatory and autoimmune disorders, radio-imaging contrast
removal in imaging and interventional radiology procedures, and the treatment
of rhabdomyolysis, drug overdose, and others. Additional information is
