Eversense E3 CGM System has received FDA approval. Senseonics notes the Eversense E3, including proprietary sacrificial boronic acid (SBA) technology to extend longevity to 6 months, is planned to be available to patients in the U.S. through Ascensia Diabetes Care, Senseonics’ global commercial partner, beginning in the second quarter of 2022.

“We repeatedly hear from our patients with diabetes that what they desire is a long-lasting sensor that is also highly accurate,” said Satish Garg, M.D., Professor of Medicine and Director of the Adult Diabetes Program at the Barbara Davis Center of the University of Colorado, and the Principal Investigator of the PROMISE Study, which formed the basis for the FDA approval. “The next generation Eversense E3 System delivers on both. Patients will appreciate the excellent accuracy of the system and the ability of the sensor to last 6 months. This is another step forward for patients who desire to manage their diabetes with all the advantages of the Eversense CGM with the fully implantable sensor.”

The Eversense E3 CGM System offers patients:

  • Fully implantable third-generation sensor, with proprietary SBA technology to enhance sensor longevity, demonstrating a mean absolute relative difference (MARD) of 8.5% in the PROMISE Study.
  • Industry-leading 6-month sensor wear duration, making Eversense the longest-lasting CGM system available, with essentially two sensor insertion and removal procedures per year.
  • Removable smart transmitter, held in place with a mild silicone-based adhesive, providing discreet on-body vibratory alerts and data transmission to a mobile app where glucose values, trends, and alerts are displayed.

“Further extending the duration of the longest-lasting CGM system to 6 months represents a massive leap forward for patients and towards our mission of transforming lives in the global diabetes community,” said Tim Goodnow, Ph.D., President and Chief Executive Officer of Senseonics. “The review was delayed by one year due to COVID-19 priorities and now together with our partner Ascensia, we can execute our launch plan to deliver the Eversense E3 CGM System to U.S. patients beginning in the second quarter. We look forward to initiating Eversense E3 sales and believe that, with Ascensia’s newly dedicated CGM commercial organization, the launch of the new 6-month product will establish the foundation for growth in our installed base later in 2022 and beyond.”

After the extended review during COVID-19, and with its next-generation product now having been approved in the U.S., the Company concurrently is providing its 2022 financial outlook. The Company expects full-year 2022 global net revenue to be in the range of $14.0 million to $18.0 million. The Company expects the majority of its expenses for 2022 to be for research and development for ongoing feasibility and pivotal clinical trials for additional products in its product pipeline, including the start of its 365-day pivotal trial, subject to IDE approval. Additionally, the Company currently expects to report unaudited revenues of approximately $4.0 million for the fourth quarter of 2021 and approximately $13.7 million for the full year ended December 31, 2021. The unaudited balance of cash, cash equivalents, and marketable securities at December 31, 2021 was approximately $182 million. The Company expects to report its full fourth quarter and fiscal year 2021 financial results after the market closes on Tuesday, March 1, 2022. The preliminary financial results described herein have not been audited and are subject to adjustment based on the Company’s completion of year-end financial close processes.

“The Eversense E3 CGM System is an exciting advancement in diabetes management,” said Francine Kaufman, M.D., Chief Medical Officer of Senseonics. “We believe patients and providers are waiting for this step forward. I want to take this opportunity to thank the PROMISE Study investigators, study participants, and the Senseonics team for helping us reach this important milestone and the diligence of the FDA reviewers in this difficult environment. We are excited to begin making this next-generation product available in the U.S. to people with diabetes.”
