Transcript of this video segment:
Steve: What’s next for V-Go and I would assume it has something to do with the smart phones.
Scott Abbott: I can answer that in a lot of ways. What’s next for V-Go is to continue working on development of the device to simplify and make diabetes easier to manage for patients. That is our goal, to simplify and help patients manage diabetes better to continue clinical work and doing important things with our device. We have publicly disclosed a couple development projects, one involves something called V-Go link, which is a device that would attach to the V-Go and connect via bluetooth to a smart phone that would enable patients and providers, we hope, to better manage themselves and deliver insulin more effectively. So there is that technological development we’re working on. The other aspect is we are developing a pre-filled V-Go so instead of the filling that we described earlier there would be a pre-filled V-Go as well. Those are the two or three major technology things we are working on.
Steve: Have you decided which insulin the pre-fill is for?
Scott Abbott: No. No, we don’t have any information on that.
Steve: So, is there anything you want to let family practitioners and other medical professionals… first of all, you do you have a website I presume?
Scott Abbott: Yes, we have go-vgo.com and Valeritas.com so we have a couple sites there.
Steve: Are there videos on there?
Scott Abbott: There are several videos on the websites available, patient testimonials, how to use the product, there are a number of videos and resources that can be accessed on these websites to help everyone out.
