About Pulse Biosciences
Pulse Biosciences (NASDAQ:PLSE) is a medical technology company developing a therapeutic tissue treatment platform based on Nano-Pulse Electro-Signaling, a proprietary bioelectronics cell signaling technology. Published pre-clinical studies have shown that a single, brief exposure of Nano-Pulse Electro-Signaling to target tissue initiates a cascade of events within cells and in the surrounding microenvironment that results in apoptosis (cell death) and the priming of a durable adaptive immune response. Pulse Biosciences is pursuing a variety of applications for its technology that exploits the technology’s unique biologic effect in immuno-oncology, dermatology, aesthetics, and veterinary medicine. Clinical studies are being planned using the first commercial system designed to support a broad array of electrodes for use in superficial, minimally-invasive, and open surgical procedures.
