Ekos' Long, Hard Road

Executive Summary

A stroke therapy company that combines interventional tools, ultrasound, and pharmaceuticals, Ekos has, in its short history, run into just about every problem a medical device start-up can face, from product failures to difficult financings, aborted partnerships to clinical trials that had to be stopped. Ekos isn't quite out of the woods, but it's getting there, and doing so with a strategy that, particularly in its approach to clinical trials, borrows a lot from the pharmaceutical industry.
