Okami Medical Announces First Patients Treated With The LOBO Vascular Occluder

The First Offering in the Company's Product Portfolio, LOBO-3, Recently Received 510(k) Clearance from the FDA for the Occlusion of Peripheral Arteries.

The LOBO (LOw-profile Braided Occluder) system is uniquely designed to provide interventional physicians with a single-device, one-and-done solution for the occlusion of various arterial targets without the need for multiple embolic devices.

Okami Medical advises the LOBO system combines a patented design with proprietary HDBRAIDTM technology to create a highly occlusive pore structure that substantially reduces blood flow and accelerates vessel closure.  The LOBO-3 occluder is intended for use in 1.5 to 3 mm diameter vessels.

Dr. Ripal Gandhi, Interventional Radiologist, Miami Cardiac and Vascular Institute, performed the first LOBO-3 implant.  “We have successfully utilized the LOBO-3 occluder to embolize several small vessels via a microcatheter.  The device has resulted in immediate occlusion of the target vessels.  The device tracks well and deploys precisely at the desired location.  The LOBO-3 occluder is a great addition to the embolic armamentarium for the occlusion of small vessels,” said Dr. Gandhi.

“Guided by world-class physician collaborators, Okami is committed to addressing numerous challenging aspects of peripheral vascular occlusion,” said Bob Rosenbluth, Ph.D., President, and CEO of Okami Medical.  “We are very pleased with the clinical performance of the LOBO-3 occluder in the initial cases.  The device is in clinical use at key centers and we look forward to expanding our launch in 2020.”

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.”
