IRVINE, Calif., Sept. 28, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Hancock Jaffe Laboratories, Inc. (Nasdaq: HJLI, HJLIW), a company specializing in medical devices that restore cardiac and vascular health, today announced that it will present and meet with potential investors at The MicroCap Conference on October 1 and 2 at The Essex House in New York City. HJLI’s presentation will take place at 10:00 am EDT on Tuesday, October 2. Interested investors should register for the conference at www.microcapconf.com, or should contact the company directly to request a meeting.
HJLI is currently waiting for approval from INVIMA, the Colombian equivalent of the US FDA, to begin its first-in-human trial for the Company’s VenoValve®, a medical device designed to treat severe cases of Chronic Venous Insufficiency (“CVI”). Severe CVI occurs when valves in the deep venous system of the leg malfunction, causing blood to pool in the lower extremities. Severe CVI includes swelling, debilitating pain, and skin ulcerations that become ongoing, open wounds. Approximately 4.5 million people in the U.S. suffer from severe CVI and the U.S. economic burden of venous ulcers from CVI has been estimated to be as high as $38 Billion a year. There are currently no FDA approved treatments for severe CVI.
