Corporation (OTCQB: CTSO), a critical care focused therapeutic device
company using blood purification to treat life-threatening illnesses,
announced distribution of its CytoSorb(R) extracorporeal cytokine

future for CytoSorb(R) in Russia as well as all over the world. The
CytoSorb(R) technology offers potential rescue to the most needy of
recipients -- the critically ill -- and that is a major victory in
the modern medical world. All the most challenging conditions --
sepsis, organ failure, massive cytokine storm and many others could
be successfully treated with it. This breakthrough technology brings
healthcare standards to a new level and we are happy and excited to
become part of it." 
Dr. Phillip Chan, CEO of CytoSorbents Corporation commented, "Russia
represents a tremendous market opportunity for CytoSorb(R) outside of
the European Union. INTENSIVMED's status as a well-established
critical care medical device distributor that also distributes
heart-lung machines for a leading cardiac surgery device company in
Russia, makes them a natural choice to distribute CytoSorb(R). We are
delighted to be working with INTENSIVMED and look forward to a
fruitful collaboration. " 
Russia is the largest country in the world in terms of land. Its
gross domestic product of $2 trillion makes it the 8th largest
economy in the world, driven by a wealth of natural resources
including oil, natural gas, coal, timber and minerals. The top 10
cities, including the capital city of Moscow and St. Petersburg, are
home to nearly 20% of the country's total population of 145 million.
According to the World Health Organization, Russia spends
approximately 6% of its GDP (2011), or approximately $125 billion, on
healthcare annually. The average life expectancy of its citizens is
63 years of age for men, and 75 years of age for women.  
CytoSorb(R) is the only specifically approved extracorporeal cytokine
filter commercially available throughout all 28 countries of the
European Union and in countries that accept CE Mark approval. It is
currently being sold directly in Germany, Austria and Switzerland,
with expanding distribution in the United Kingdom, Ireland, the
Netherlands, Turkey, India, and Russia.

medical equipment and disposables to the Russian public and private
