remedē EL-X System System FDA Approval

remedē El-X System Next Generation Approval

ZOLL® Medical Corporation, an Asahi Kasei company that manufactures medical devices and related software solutions, announced today that it has received U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval for the remedē® EL-X System to treat moderate to severe Central Sleep Apnea (CSA) in adult patients.1 CSA is a serious condition that is often associated with heart failure, coronary artery disease, and certain cardiac arrhythmias.

The next-generation remedē EL-X System combines enhanced functionality with a patient-friendly design, simplifying the implant procedure and providing greater device longevity for patients with Central Sleep Apnea. Features of the new device include:1

  • Extended longevity: 40% longer average battery life versus previous version2
  • Reduced size: Approximately 25% smaller than the previous version
  • Simplified implant: Single lead, single-port system that provides both stimulation and sensing from a single lead
  • Data-driven clinical insights with DRēAM View: Enhancements include full-night, comprehensive diagnostic capabilities

“The next-generation remedē System is built on the proven success of the current platform, with the needs of both patients and clinicians in mind,” said Pete Sommerness, President of ZOLL Respicardia. “The increased longevity, smaller size, enhanced diagnostics, and simplified implant procedure will substantially benefit patients.”

“We are very excited to offer DRēAM View, a full-night diagnostic report that will allow clinicians deeper insight into how the patient is responding to remedē therapy,” added Todd Goblish, Vice President of Research and Development at ZOLL Respicardia. “DRēAM View diagnostics will enable clinicians to better tailor therapy settings for each individual patient.”

A phased launch of the remedē EL-X System will commence immediately in implanting centers in the United States.

The remedē System and Central Sleep Apnea

The first-generation remedē System was approved by the FDA in 2017. The remedē System is an implantable device that activates automatically each night to stimulate a nerve in the chest (phrenic nerve) that sends signals to the breathing muscles (diaphragm) to help restore a normal breathing pattern.3 The Post Approval Study followed patients from the pivotal trial through five years post implant.

Central sleep apnea (CSA) is a serious breathing disorder that disrupts the normal breathing pattern during sleep and negatively affects sleep quality, quality of life, and is associated with poor outcomes. CSA results from the brain’s inability to send appropriate signals to the respiratory muscles to stimulate breathing. Many patients with CSA also have heart disease, especially heart failure.4 Patients with CSA and heart failure are at increased risk for hospitalizations and even death.5,6

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.”
