Onyx Frontier Drug-eluting Stent Following Recent CE Mark Approval

Medtronic announced today that it has launched its newest drug-eluting coronary stent, the Onyx Frontier drug-eluting stent (DES), following recent CE Mark approval.

The Onyx Frontier DES offers an innovative delivery system and builds upon the acute performance and clinical data from the Resolute Onyx™ drug-eluting stent. The DES leverages the same best-in-class stent platform as Resolute Onyx™ DES, with an enhanced delivery system1 designed to improve deliverability and increase acute performance in the most challenging cases.2

Onyx Frontier DES’ meaningful design changes include an innovative dual-layer balloon, lower crossing profile,3 and increased catheter flexibility leading to a 16% improvement in deliverability vs. the previous generation Resolute Onyx DES without compromising on radial strength.2 In addition to the delivery system enhancements, Onyx Frontier offers a broad size matrix to treat patients ranging from 2.0mm to 5.0mm diameters and its 4.50-5.00 mm sizes1 can be expanded to 6.00 mm – specifically designed to support extra-large vessels including the left main. Onyx Frontier inherits the same clinical data and indications of Resolute Onyx, including approval for bifurcation lesions, left main PCI, and one month of dual antiplatelet therapy (DAPT) in high bleeding risk patients.4

“The Onyx Frontier DES launch demonstrates our commitment to interventional cardiologists by providing best-in-class products,” said Jason Weidman, senior vice president and president of the Coronary & Renal Denervation business unit, which is part of the Cardiovascular Portfolio at Medtronic. “Following our launch in the US, we’re thrilled to provide hospitals across western Europe and the globe with the Onyx Frontier DES, which has been thoughtfully designed with physicians’ needs in mind. This launch furthers Medtronic’s goal of engineering the extraordinary, and we look forward to continuing to pursue innovation each day.”

The Onyx Frontier DES is used for the treatment of patients with coronary artery disease (CAD), which is caused by plaque buildup on the inside of the coronary arteries. These plaque deposits can narrow or clog the inside of the arteries, which decreases the supply of blood and oxygen to the heart. To help to restore blood flow, a physician may use a stent (a flexible metal scaffolding) that is delivered during a minimally invasive procedure to prop open the artery. A drug-eluting stent is the most common type of stent used to treat a blockage of the heart arteries.5

The Onyx Frontier DES received FDA approval in the United States in May and recently received CE Mark in Europe.

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.”

“We are excited to present the first look at the safety and clinical activity of ELVN-001, which we believe supports the potential for ELVN-001 to address the limitations of the available active-site TKIs,” said Helen Collins, M.D., Chief Medical Officer of Enliven. “Across a wide dose range, ELVN-001 demonstrated activity in a heavily pre-treated patient population that includes post-asciminib patients, with a preliminary safety profile consistent with its highly selective design. Not only did all evaluable patients have improved or stable BCR::ABL1 transcript levels, but, importantly, 89% of all patients enrolled remain on study. We believe the initial data demonstrate the potential clinical utility of ELVN-001 for all types of patients, including those that are earlier in the treatment paradigm.”
