If you look at the latest funding news, you can see many companies in the pharmaceutical industries receiving funding for creating revolutionary drugs that can improve the care aqnd the quality of live for patients. One good example of this is that on January 11, 2011, Rib-X Pharmaceuticals received $20 million in funding from Warbug Pincus, LLC and other syndicated investors. The reason for this large funding round is because Rib-X has been successfully developing a wide range of antibiotics, some of which have already reached Phase-3 in clinical studies. That's not all! Other pharmaceutical companies are also receiving funding from large investors as well. On January 11, 2011, yet another pharmaceutical company, NextWave Pharmaceuticals has received an even larger amount of funding. This company received $45 million in funding with both Panorama Capital and Bay City Capital leading the funding round. One of the reasons for this funding round is that NextWave has developed a new line of drugs to treat hypertension and ADHD or attention deficit and hyperactivity disorder. The line of drugs that NextWave is producing is NEXICLON XR and CNS which are both under review by the FDA. The progress that NextWave has made with these two product lines has drawn the attention of these investors. How about medical devices? Well, if you are in the medical devices industry, you have an opportunity to receive investments also. Avinger, a medical device company which develops and commercializes intravascular therapeutic devices has also received a large amount of funding. In fact, Avinger has raised $25 million in funding from highly successful entrepreneurs in the industry. The reason for the funding is to accelerate the commercialization of the Wildcat and Kitty Cat line of wire guide catheters for intravascular stents.
