Dr. Daniel Collins has over 30 years of medical industry experience. He co-founded CytoMedical Design, LLC in 2012 serving as its Chief Science Officer.

Dr. Collins leads the way, not only with the commercialization of the KUSH™ System, but improvements functionally and commercially. His background and years of cellular research and Regenerative Medicine will also start to build the base of PetVivo’s research and development team for the future.

About PetVivo Holdings, Inc.
PetVivo Holdings Inc. (OTCPINK:PETV) is an emerging biomedical device company focused on the licensing and commercialization of innovative medical devices for pets and pet therapeutics. PetVivo is leveraging investments made in the human medical device industry to commercialize therapeutics for pets in a capital and time efficient way. A key component of this strategy is the accelerated timeline to revenues for veterinary medical devices, which enter the market much earlier than the more stringently regulated pharmaceuticals.
PetVivo's strategy is to commercialize proprietary products from human medical device companies specifically for the companion animal market. The company’s product pipeline includes 17 animal and human therapeutics. A portfolio of 20 patents protects the company’s products, production processes and biomaterials. PetVivo’s lead product, a veterinarian-administered joint injection for the treatment of osteoarthritis in dogs, is scheduled for launch later this year.
