Cook Medical Receives FDA Breakthrough Designation for New Drug-eluting Stent

Cook Medical Receives Fda Breakthrough Designation For New Drug-Eluting StentCook Medical has received Breakthrough Device designation from the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on a new drug-eluting stent for below the knee (BTK). This new stent is designed to treat patients suffering from chronic limb-threatening ischemia (CLTI).

“CLTI is a debilitating disease of growing prevalence around the globe and this is Cook Medical’s latest innovation within our peripheral artery disease (PAD) program,”said Mark Breedlove, vice president of Cook Medical’s Vascular division. “This new product leverages our deep understanding of stent design and drug elution for lower limb anatomies, and it complements our dedicated portfolio of BTK products for limb preservation. Our goal is to improve the long-term clinical outcomes for CLTI patients.”

The Breakthrough Device designation is granted for devices that have the potential to provide more effective treatment or diagnosis for life-threatening or irreversibly debilitating diseases or conditions. While the product is not commercially available yet, the benefits of the designation include priority review and interactive and timely communication with FDA during the clinical trial and premarket review phases in order to help get lifesaving devices to patients more quickly.

Dr. Sachita Shah, Sr. Director, Global Health, Butterfly Network, "Butterfly is proud to continue improving maternal health equity through Phase Two of the largest-scale handheld ultrasound distribution and training ever conducted in Sub-Saharan Africa. South Africa is an emerging market that continues to have disproportionately high rates of maternal mortality and stillbirth. Patients need easier access to antenatal imaging, and clinicians need better capabilities for screening high-risk conditions that lead to disproportionately worse pregnancy outcomes in rural areas in the public sector. Together with CHAI and GUSI, we can tackle this by making ultrasound much more accessible, so high-risk conditions can be identified earlier in care, which is known to improve outcomes.”
The clinical Study will enroll up to 97 patients at up to 12 European investigational sites. Completion of the study is expected this year, and results will support CE mark and pre-market approval submissions reports Vivasure Medical.
Dr. Michael Newman, Indaptus’ Founder, Chief Scientific Officer, and lead author, commented, “The new data are consistent with our preclinical animal tumor model studies and provide evidence for our hypothesis that patented Decoy bacteria can activate a wide range of innate and adaptive human immune cells involved in fighting tumors.  This aligns with what we’ve observed in our ongoing Phase 1 clinical trial of Decoy20 – broad immune activation, as evidenced by transiently increased levels of many key cytokines and chemokines following single dose administration. These findings bolster our confidence in Decoy20's potential as a multifaceted immunotherapy.”
