Ascensia Diabetes Care Receives CE Mark Approval for the Eversense® E3 Continuous Glucose Monitoring System

Ascensia Diabetes Care, a global diabetes care company, maker of CONTOUR® blood glucose monitoring (BGM) system portfolio and distributor of Eversense® Continuous Glucose Monitoring (CGM) Systems, announces that its partner Senseonics Holdings, Inc. has received CE Mark approval for the Eversense® E3 Continuous Glucose Monitoring (CGM) System, clearing the way for its use in European Union (EU) member countries.

Ascensia Diabetes Care plans to make the next-generation system, which can be used for up to 6 months, available to patients in certain European markets from the third quarter of 2022.

The fully implantable, long-term Eversense E3 CGM System has been designed to deliver key improvements on the currently available Eversense® XL CGM System, whilst building on the unique benefits that European users already experience. The next-generation system offers exceptional accuracy and long-term sensor wear, alongside reduced frequency of calibration and significantly enhanced sensor survivability.

Unlike the XL System, the new E3 System has also been approved for non-adjunctive use, meaning that it can inform insulin treatment decisions without confirmation of glucose levels from fingerstick testing. Both Eversense XL and Eversense E3 are approved for use up to 6 months, making them the longest lasting CGM sensors available. This gives people with diabetes freedom from the burdens associated with other available CGM systems, such as weekly or bi-weekly self-insertions.

Eversense E3 is already available in the U.S. following FDA approval and launch earlier this year. Following the CE Mark approval in Europe the Eversense E3 System will be distributed in Germany, Italy, Spain (including Andorra), the Netherlands, Poland, Switzerland, Norway and Sweden.

Robert Schumm, President at Ascensia Diabetes Care, said, “This approval is an exciting milestone for us as we look forward to bringing Eversense E3 to people with diabetes across Europe. From this next-generation system you can expect the excellent features and benefits that European users currently experience with Eversense XL, but with design improvements that address requests we repeatedly hear from patients and healthcare providers. Our role is to make sure that as many people have access to this innovative product as possible, and efforts are already under way to launch this system in certain European countries in the coming months.”

Developed by Senseonics and brought to people with diabetes by Ascensia, the newly approved Eversense E3 CGM System offers patients:

The longest lasting CGM available, with 6-month sensor wear duration and essentially two sensor insertion and removal procedures per year

Exceptional accuracy, with a mean absolute relative difference (MARD) of 8.5% demonstrated in the PROMISE Study1 for the duration of sensor wear

Fewer calibrations, with primarily one calibration required per day after day 21 of use

A fully implantable fluorescence-based sensor, with a removable smart transmitter* that provides discreet on-body vibratory alerts and transmits data to a mobile app

An innovative sacrificial boronic acid (SBA) design modification to enhance 6-month sensor survivability

An ability to make dosing decisions without fingerstick testing, due to non-adjunctive label

“The features and benefits of this improved system offer people with diabetes unparalleled flexibility, convenience and accuracy,” said Elaine Anderson, Head of Eversense CGM Business Unit at Ascensia Diabetes Care. “Choice is key in managing diabetes and we are proud to work alongside our partner Senseonics to bring an outstanding and unique CGM option to patients and healthcare providers across Europe and in the U.S.”

People in these markets who are interested in getting started with Eversense XL now can visit for more information, and will be among the first to know when Eversense E3 is commercially available.

* There is no glucose data generated when the transmitter is removed.

Data from clinical studies of STK-001 demonstrated clinical benefit for patients ages 2 to 18 years old, including reductions in seizures and improvements in cognition and behavior that support the potential for disease modificatio. Analysis of 72 patients treated in STK-001 clinical trials suggests that higher STK-001 drug exposure in brain leads to greater seizure reductions. Two-year data from the longest prospective natural history study of Dravet syndrome showed that, on average, patients experienced no meaningful improvement in convulsive seizure frequency and exhibited widening gaps in cognition and behavior despite treatment with the best available anti-seizure medicines.
"Exact Sciences is looking forward to presenting new evidence at SABCS that adds important perspectives to treating breast cancer patients and showing that some patients may be able to de-escalate treatments and still have positive outcomes," said Dr. Rick Baehner, Chief Medical Officer, Precision Oncology, Exact Sciences. "Every year, we build upon the precedent set by the Oncotype DX Breast Recurrence Score® test and its prognostic and predictive abilities to determine the chemotherapy benefit for specific breast cancer patients. We are pleased to see authorities expanding access to this test as we continue to develop key evidence in collaboration with some of the world's most prestigious, breast cancer-focused organizations."
Clozapine has been established as the most effective antipsychotic medication for treatment-resistant schizophrenia. However, it is significantly underutilized mainly due to the risk of developing agranulocytosis and the need to frequently monitor the absolute neutrophil count (ANC).
Dagi-Ben Noon, CEO of Inspira Technologies, reflects on the partnership's significance: "By Integrating our technology to oxygenate blood directly with Ennocure's infection prevention solutions, we are focusing on potentially improving patient outcomes in ICUs and paving the way for safer, more effective life-support treatments. This collaboration is expected to accelerate the development and broaden the implementation of our advanced technology."
The findings suggest that the novel, non-invasive genomic test can help physicians guide next steps for these patients, enabling them to potentially avoid unnecessary invasive procedures or accelerate time to appropriate treatment.
