Published

on

Medtronic plc (NYSE:MDT), the global leader in medical technology, today announced results from an interim analysis of the first 171 patients (including 71 roll-ins) treated in the OPTIMIZE PRO clinical study.

The post-market, prospective, multi-center study is evaluating procedural outcomes (including pacemaker rate) associated with procedure-related techniques and post-procedure TAVR care pathways when using the self-expanding, supra-annular Evolut™ PRO and PRO+ TAVR systems in patients with symptomatic severe aortic stenosis. The interim data was presented virtually at the Society for Cardiovascular Angiography and Interventions (SCAI) 2021 Scientific Sessions.

Study investigators utilized several procedural approaches with the Evolut TAVR system in the study, including the “cusp overlap technique,” which is designed to help implanters assess and achieve the target implant depth in an effort to reduce interaction with the conduction system.

At 30 days, excellent safety outcomes were observed with zero death or disabling stroke and a low pacemaker rate (8.8%). Additionally, the Evolut platform showed excellent hemodynamic (blood flow) performance with low mean gradients (8.1 mm Hg) and low rates of residual total aortic regurgitation with the majority of subjects having none/trace (80.4%), and the rest mild (19.6%) at discharge. Patients also experienced an expedited discharge with a median hospital length of stay of one day.

The OPTIMIZE PRO study utilizes a TAVR care pathway to evaluate common practices and shared experiences such as conscious sedation and early mobilization. A conduction disturbance pathway evaluates efficiencies and heart team considerations for monitoring and managing patients with conduction disturbance who might be considered for a pacemaker post TAVR.

“The evolution of TAVR requires that we refine aspects of the procedure and post-procedure care pathways to improve patient outcomes,” said Kendra Grubb, M.D., surgical director of the Structural Heart and Valve Center at Emory Healthcare in Atlanta, and co-principal investigator in the OPTIMIZE PRO study who presented the data at the meeting. “Interim results from this study demonstrate improvements, like low pacemaker rates and next-day discharge, and are supportive of the hypothesis that the cusp overlap technique can improve patient care.”

The OPTIMIZE PRO study is being conducted at 46 study sites in the U.S. and Canada and up to 15 sites in Europe. The primary endpoint includes the rate of all-cause mortality or all-stroke at 30 days with secondary endpoints of discharge time, percent of patients with more than moderate aortic regurgitation, and the rate of pacemaker implant for new-onset or worsening conduction disturbance at 30 days. The study will also evaluate rehospitalization rates and discharge time at 30 days and one year.

“As a leader in transcatheter valves therapies, we are committed to helping implanting centers standardize and further refine their TAVR care pathways to improve patient outcomes,” said Nina Goodheart, president of the Structural Heart & Aortic business, which is part of the Cardiovascular Portfolio at Medtronic. “In addition to helping us better understand the site-driven dynamics around conduction disturbance post-TAVR, the study also allows us to generate additional evidence around the Evolut PRO and PRO+ system’s advanced sealing skirt and its impact on paravalvular leak.”

The Evolut TAVR platform, including the Evolut™ R, Evolut™ PRO and Evolut PRO+ TAVR System, is indicated for symptomatic severe aortic stenosis patients across all risk categories (extreme, high, intermediate and low) in the U.S. The Evolut PRO and PRO+ valves feature an outer tissue wrap that adds surface area contact between the valve and the native aortic annulus to further advance valve sealing.

In collaboration with leading clinicians, researchers and scientists worldwide, Medtronic offers the broadest range of innovative medical technology for the interventional and surgical treatment of cardiovascular disease and cardiac arrhythmias. The company strives to offer products and services that deliver clinical and economic value to healthcare consumers and providers around the world.

AbbVie Subsidiary Scoops Up Soliton and Its Cellulite, Tattoo Removal Device

AbbVie‘s Allergan Aesthetics’ most well-known brands right now include BOTOX and CoolSculpting, among others. However, with the company’s latest acquisition, another one might slide its way to the top.

On Monday, Allergan Aesthetics announced that it is acquiring Soliton in a definitive agreement that is valued at approximately $550 million. Allergan Aesthetics will pay $22.60 per share for each outstanding Soliton share.

Perhaps the most notable gain from the deal is the acquisition of Soliton’s RESONIC, the company’s novel platform technology that uses non-invasive, high-frequency sound waves to disrupt targeted cellular structures and connective tissue.

The technology has received U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) 510(k) clearance for short-term improvement and appearance of cellulite and for use in conjunction with a laser for tattoo removal. 

“There is a huge unmet need to address cellulite and effective treatments have been elusive and frustrating for consumers,” said Carrie Strom, President, Global Allergan Aesthetics and Senior Vice President, AbbVie. “Soliton’s technology offers a new, completely non-invasive approach with clinically-proven results to reduce the appearance of cellulite with no patient downtime.”

Just last week, Soliton announced the rollout of RESONIC, its Rapid Acoustic Pulse (RAP) device. The company boasted that the technology “helps achieve 75% greater fading of tattoos in as few as 3 sessions and improves the appearance of cellulite non-invasively,” according to the announcement. 

“RESONIC revolutionizes the industry’s approach to two notoriously challenging patient needs. The technology’s ability to physically change targeted cellular structures without breaking the skin is game changing,” said Dr. Elizabeth Tanzi, board certified dermatologist and member of Soliton’s scientific advisory board, at the time of the announcement. 

Allergan Aesthetics is still a fairly new face in the industry. In the midst of AbbVie finalizing its $63 billion merger with Allergan, early last year the company announced plans for Allergan Aesthetics, a stand-alone company tasked with continuing to build out AbbVie’s aesthetics programs. 

RESONIC received its first FDA clearance in 2019, but is not expected to roll out until June 2021 in medically supervised spas and through a select network of physicians. 

“This is an exciting day for Soliton and the RESONIC brand,” said Brad Hauser, president and CEO of Soliton, at the time of the announcement. “It’s been a long time in the making and we’re excited to finally bring this innovative and efficacious solution to procedures that have had historically low patient satisfaction or required numerous treatment sessions to achieve expected results. Launching RESONIC with two unique indications has been a strategic goal of ours since receiving our first FDA clearance in 2019.”

Sequana Medical Announces Strong Top-Line Results from RED DESERT alfapump DSR® Study and Expansion of DSR® Development Programme

Avatar

Published

on

  • RED DESERT data of all patients confirm:
    • alfapump DSR is highly effective at managing fluid and sodium balance in diuretic-resistant heart failure patients without need for loop diuretics
    • restoration of diuretic response and improvement in cardio-renal function
    • improvement in diuretic response maintained in long-term follow-up
  • SAHARA DESERT study in heart failure patients with residual congestion to start in Q2 2021
  • Expanding DSR development programme with short-term DSR therapy
  • Evaluating opportunity for DSR therapy for fluid and sodium removal in renal disease

Conference call with live webcast today at 15:00 CEST / 09:00 am EDT

GHENT, Belgium, May 11, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Sequana Medical NV (Euronext Brussels: SEQUA), an innovator in the treatment of diuretic-resistant fluid overload in liver disease, malignant ascites and heart failure, today announces positive top-line results from the RED DESERT study with repeated dose alfapump DSR® (Direct Sodium Removal) therapy in diuretic-resistant heart failure patients.

SAHARA DESERT, the study of the alfapump DSR in diuretic-resistant heart failure patients with residual congestion is on track to start before the end of this quarter, with interim results expected before year-end and top-line results expected in H2 2022.

In addition, Sequana Medical announces that it will expand its DSR development program with the addition of short-term DSR therapy. Short-term DSR is expected to achieve faster adoption of DSR therapy by the clinical community, support alfapump DSR market entry, expand the potential market opportunity and target earlier entry into the U.S. market. MOJAVE DESERT, the first U.S. feasibility study of short-term DSR therapy, is planned to start in H2 2022. Based on FDA feedback, SONORAN DESERT, the U.S. efficacy study of alfapump DSR therapy, is now planned to commence in mid-2023 to allow completion of long-term pre-clinical studies.

Fluid and sodium overload is an important clinical problem in renal disease / hemodialysis and Sequana Medical is evaluating the opportunity for DSR therapy to improve clinical outcomes and is supporting the clinical work of Dr. McIntyre of Lawson Health Research Institute, Ontario, Canada.

Ian Crosbie, Chief Executive Officer at Sequana Medical, commented: “These RED DESERT results are very exciting and further confirm the potential clinical benefits of our alfapump DSR therapy. Repeated alfapump DSR therapy not only managed the fluid and sodium balance throughout the study without the need of any loop diuretics but crucially it also restored patients’ diuretic response and overall cardio-renal status. We are very encouraged by the durability of the reduction in loop diuretics and believe our novel alfapump DSR therapy has the potential to transform the treatment of this large and growing patient group.

“In light of the success of RED DESERT, we have concluded the study at eight patients so that we can move on to the SAHARA DESERT study as soon as possible, where we will be treating our anticipated patient population.

“We are expanding our DSR development programme into short-term DSR treatment, complementing our long-term alfapump DSR treatment. We believe that short-term DSR therapy plays a crucial role in establishing this breakthrough treatment and enhances the market opportunity for alfapump DSR therapy. This combined strategy of short-term and long-term DSR therapy will reinforce our leadership role in addressing diuretic-resistant fluid overload.”

Strong top-line results from RED DESERT

Eight patients diagnosed with stable chronic heart failure on high dose oral diuretics (mean furosemide equivalent dose of 323 mg/day) were implanted with the alfapump DSR system and underwent up to six weeks of DSR therapy whilst their loop diuretic treatment was withheld. The heart failure patients enrolled in the study had an overall high disease severity at baseline, including a mean left ventricular ejection fraction of 24% and mean NT-proBNP of 4,589 pg/mL.

During the course of the six-week therapy, none of the patients required any loop diuretics, demonstrating the ability of repeated alfapump DSR therapy to effectively manage their fluid and sodium balance. After the six-week study, the mean response to a standard diuretic challenge (40 mg intravenous furosemide) improved by more than 250% (p<0.001 vs baseline, N=7) as measured by the six-hour excretion of sodium. This improvement of diuretic efficiency was maintained with a 79% reduction of average loop diuretic dose at a median of 10 months post-study versus baseline and all patients were receiving less than or equal to 50% of their baseline diuretic dose (maximum follow-up post-study is 12.5 months).

The results clearly show a significant benefit to the cardio-renal function of these patients with a mean 30% reduction in NT-proBNP (p<0.001 vs baseline, N=7), mean 22% improvement in estimated glomerular filtration rate (p<0.001 vs baseline, N=7) and mean 22% reduction in creatinine (p<0.001 vs baseline, N=7). Typically, managing the fluid balance in these patients through aggressive diuretic use would be associated with declining cardio-renal function, whilst RED DESERT showed that both of these functions were improved following repeated alfapump DSR therapy.

In all patients, there were no clinically relevant changes in serum sodium levels or progressive hyponatremia. There were two serious adverse events in two of the last three patients, both having advanced heart failure. There was one transient ischemic attack (fully recovered) and one sudden cardiac death. The Data Monitoring Committee (DMC) assessed both events as possibly related to the study therapy or procedure but unlikely to be related to the device. The site Principal Investigator assessed that neither event was related to the study therapy, procedure or device.

Dr. Jozef Bartunek, Interventional Cardiologist at Onze-Lieve-Vrouw Hospital in Aalst (Belgium) and Principal Investigator of the RED DESERT study, commented: “These results confirm that alfapump DSR therapy is well tolerated and manages to quickly maintain a neutral sodium balance and stable body weight over six weeks, despite complete withdrawal of loop diuretics. The substantial improvement in diuretic response together with the meaningful improvement in NT-proBNP and renal function could be a potential game-changer.”

Dr. Jeffrey Testani, Associate Professor at Yale University and Heart Failure Scientific Advisor of Sequana Medical, added: “There is a significant need for novel therapies for sodium and fluid removal in heart failure, given the toxicity of loop diuretics and the high prevalence of resistance to these agents. The simultaneous normalisation of diuretic response and improvement in cardio-renal status of the RED DESERT patients is a never before seen treatment effect and could translate into important long-term clinical benefits in heart failure patients. I am looking forward to further clinical research to better understand the cardio-renal benefits of alfapump DSR therapy and its application to heart failure patients in urgent need of improved treatment options.”

SAHARA DESERT on track to start before end Q2 2021 – Interim results end 2021, Top-line results H2 2022

The SAHARA DESERT study will build on the learnings from RED DESERT and moves into sicker heart failure patients – those with residual congestion and for whom oral diuretics are no longer effective at preventing fluid overload. The study in 20 patients will evaluate the treatment algorithm and the ability of alfapump DSR therapy to eliminate the residual congestion and restore the correct fluid status (euvolemia) for up to 22 weeks. Interim results are expected before end 2021 with top-line results planned for H2 2022.

Expanding DSR development programme with short-term as well as long-term DSR therapy

As a result of the positive results from RED DESERT, the DSR development programme is being expanded into short-term DSR therapy to complement long-term alfapump DSR therapy. The intention is to enable faster adoption of DSR therapy by the clinical community by reducing barriers to adoption, support alfapump DSR market entry, expand the potential market opportunity and target earlier entry into the U.S. market.

A key element of the DSR programme is the development of DSR Infusate 2.0, Sequana Medical’s proprietary DSR Infusate. The intention is to deliver an infusate with a superior therapeutic profile as well as a high margin recurring revenue flow to accompany alfapump sales. Pre-clinical development work on DSR Infusate 2.0 is ongoing and preparations are being made for Chemistry, Manufacturing and Controls (CMC) activities.

Short-term DSR therapy will involve repeated DSR treatment for approximately 2 weeks, using DSR Infusate 2.0 in combination with a peritoneal catheter (instead of the alfapump). MOJAVE DESERT, the U.S. proof-of-concept study of short-term DSR therapy is scheduled to start in H2 2022. The study design will leverage the learnings from SAHARA DESERT as well as the anticipated superior therapeutic profile of DSR Infusate 2.0. The use of short-term DSR therapy without the alfapump has been enabled by the fundamental DSR patents that have been granted in the U.S. and Europe, and are under review elsewhere in the world.

Following discussions with the FDA, SONORAN DESERT, the U.S. controlled efficacy study of alfapump DSR is now planned to commence in mid-2023 to enable completion of long-term pre-clinical studies prior to study commencement.

Evaluating opportunity for DSR therapy in fluid and sodium overload in renal disease / hemodialysis

The effective management of fluid and sodium overload is a significant problem in renal disease / hemodialysis. Sequana Medical is evaluating the opportunity for DSR therapy to address this poorly met clinical need and is supporting the work of Dr. Chris McIntyre of the Lawson Health Research Institute, Ontario, Canada who is evaluating the use of DSR therapy in effective volume management and sodium removal in prevalent hemodialysis patients (ClinicalTrials.gov NCT04603014). Results of this work will be shared in due course.

About RED DESERT study design

RED DESERT is a prospective, single-arm, first-in-human study to evaluate the safety and feasibility of alfapump DSR. Eight patients diagnosed with stable chronic heart failure on high doses of oral diuretics were implanted with the alfapump DSR system (alfapump and implanted surgical port). Following implantation, patients underwent a standardised diuretic challenge (40 mg intravenous furosemide) to quantify their response to diuretics, and this was repeated at specific time points throughout the study. At the start of the study treatment, patients were admitted for a 14-day in-patient period in which diuretics were withheld and patients were treated with DSR D10% infusate on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Following the 14-day in-patient period, diuretics continued to be withheld and patients came into the clinic for their DSR treatment over the subsequent four weeks.

The primary safety endpoints include rate of device, procedure and/or therapy related serious adverse events through day 14 and through day 42. Secondary feasibility endpoints include the ability of alfapump DSR to maintain a neutral sodium balance in the absence of diuretic treatment and the sustained effect of DSR to maintain euvolemia through week six. Additional exploratory endpoints include the potential impact of DSR to restore response to diuretics following DSR treatment. For more information about the study, please visit clinicaltrials.gov (NCT04116034).

About Sequana Medical

Sequana Medical is a commercial stage medical device company utilizing its proprietary alfapump® and DSR® (Direct Sodium Removal) technologies to develop innovative treatments for fluid overload in liver disease, malignant ascites and heart failure where diuretics are no longer effective. Fluid overload is a frequent complication of many large diseases including advanced liver disease driven by NASH (non-alcoholic steatohepatitis)-related cirrhosis and heart failure, with diuretic resistance being widespread. The U.S. market for the alfapump resulting from NASH-related cirrhosis is forecast to exceed €3 billion annually within the next 10-20 years. The heart failure market for DSR and the alfapump DSR® is estimated to be over €5 billion annually in the U.S. and EU5 by 2026.

The alfapump is a unique, fully implanted wireless device that automatically pumps fluid from the abdominal cavity into the bladder, where it is naturally eliminated through urination. DSR is Sequana Medical’s proprietary approach to managing sodium and fluid overload through use of a sodium-free infusate administered into the abdominal cavity.

In the U.S., the Company’s key growth market, the alfapump has been granted breakthrough device designation by the FDA for recurrent or refractory ascites due to liver cirrhosis. Interim data from the ongoing North American pivotal study (POSEIDON) showed positive outcomes against all primary endpoints of the study. This study is intended to support a future marketing application of the alfapump in the U.S. and Canada. In Europe, the alfapump is CE-marked for the management of refractory ascites due to liver cirrhosis and malignant ascites and is included in key clinical practice guidelines. Over 850 alfapump systems have been implanted to date.

Sequana Medical has combined its proven alfapump and proprietary DSR therapy, and is developing the alfapump DSR, a breakthrough approach to fluid overload due to heart failure. RED DESERT, the repeated dose alfapump DSR study in diuretic-resistant heart failure patients has demonstrated that repeated DSR therapy is able to both manage the fluid and sodium balance of these patients as well as restore their diuretic response and cardio-renal status.

Sequana Medical is headquartered in Ghent, Belgium. For further information, please visit www.sequanamedical.com.
