Vero will be honored as an “Innovative Supplier” at Premier’s Annual Breakthroughs Conference and Exhibition (BREAKTHROUGHS 2023) taking place June 20-22 in Nashville, TN
ATLANTA, June 14, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — VERO Biotech Inc., a commercial-stage healthcare business dedicated to neonatal intensive care and the acute care hospital community, today announced that it will be honored during Premier, Inc.’s annual supplier Innovation Celebration at the 2023 Breakthroughs Conference and Exhibition.
VERO Biotech’s GENOSYL® Delivery System (DS) will be recognized as a “Technological Breakthrough.” VERO Biotech’s GENOSYL® DS – the first tankless nitric oxide delivery system approved by the FDA – will be one of only seven innovations honored during Premier’s supplier Innovation Celebration, which recognizes groundbreaking healthcare technologies that have been launched throughout the year and the ways these products are helping to improve the health of communities.
“We are honored to receive this recognition from Premier. We are deeply committed to continued innovation so that we may better serve patients, respiratory therapists, and healthcare providers.” said Brent V. Furse, CEO and President, VERO Biotech.

GENOSYL DS is the first tankless inhaled nitric oxide delivery system approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Inhaled Nitric Oxide dilates pulmonary blood vessels and may be used to improve oxygenation in neonates with hypoxic respiratory failure and pulmonary hypertension. Unlike tank-based systems, GENOSYL DS generates and delivers iNO at the bedside using a small disposable cassette. This eliminates the need for hospitals to manage large, cumbersome tanks, helps to simplify clinical workflow, and streamlines patient care.
GENOSYL (nitric oxide) gas, for inhalation, is indicated to improve oxygenation and reduce the need for extracorporeal membrane oxygenation in term and near-term (>34 weeks gestation) neonates with hypoxic respiratory failure associated with clinical or echocardiographic evidence of pulmonary hypertension in conjunction with ventilatory support and other appropriate agents.
Important Safety Information
- GENOSYL is contraindicated in the treatment of neonates dependent on right-to-left shunting of blood.
- Abrupt discontinuation of GENOSYL (nitric oxide) gas, for inhalation may lead to worsening oxygenation and increasing pulmonary artery pressure.
- Methemoglobin levels in the blood increase with the dose of nitric oxide; following discontinuation or reduction of nitric oxide, methemoglobin levels return to baseline over a period of hours.
- Methemoglobin, NO2, and PaO2 should be monitored during nitric oxide administration.
- In patients with pre-existing left ventricular dysfunction, GENOSYL may increase pulmonary capillary wedge pressure leading to pulmonary edema.
- The most common adverse reaction is hypotension.
- Nitric oxide donor compounds may have an additive effect with GENOSYL on the risk of developing methemoglobinemia.
- GENOSYL must be administered using a calibrated GENOSYL Delivery System. Only validated ventilator systems or nasal cannulas should be used in conjunction with GENOSYL.
