Vital Therapies, Inc. (VTI) is a privately held, venture backed company, with cell culture facilities in San Diego, California and a wholly owned subsidiary in Beijing, China. VTI is developing the first human liver cell-based Extracorporeal Liver Assist Device (ELAD) to stabilize liver function in patients with severe liver failure. During ELAD therapy the patient's plasma flows inside hollow fiber cartridges containing the cells, which process toxins and synthesize proteins and metabolites that are key products of normal human liver function. VTI completed a pivotal trial and filed for market approval of ELAD in China in September 2007. ELAD is in investigational clinical trials in the United States and Europe.
