Implantica publishes Interim Report Q4, January-December 2020

 | Regulatory

“The extraordinary 3-year results of our pivotal RefluxStop™ clinical trial was the highlight of the fourth quarter, with patient data supporting that RefluxStop™ has the attributes to cause a paradigm shift in acid reflux treatment.”
- Peter Forsell, CEO and Founder of Implantica

Significant events during the fourth quarter, 2020

  • Implantica’s RefluxStop™ trial showed exceptional three-year follow-up results. None of the patients in the study were in need of regular daily use of PPIs (proton-pump inhibitors), which were taken by all before surgery.
  • Implantica completed a pre-submission to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for RefluxStop™.
  • In executing its commercialisation strategy, Implantica recruited additional sales representatives in Germany.
  • Surgical webinars were launched to facilitate surgeon outreach and training during Covid-19.
  • A registry study has been prepared and is ready to be launched including a web-based data collection system. The registry will support the sales efforts in Germany, Switzerland and the UK in order to collect standard of care data for RefluxStop™.

Significant events after the end of the reporting period

  • Implantica will start selling in the UK with reimbursement and is now reinforcing the sales organization in the UK.
  • In Germany, Implantica has received our own Operation and Procedure Classification System (OPS) code and a reimbursement Diagnosis Related Group (DRG) for RefluxStop™. This is a milestone in Germany.
  • Implantica had two meetings with the FDA. After the initial pre-submission meeting for RefluxStop™, the FDA requested a second follow-up meeting with their surgical expertise. The next step will most likely be a pre-submission supplement leading to a third meeting.
  • Applications for regulatory approval of RefluxStop™ are ongoing in 30 countries around the world in parallel.
