Implantica publishes Interim Report Q3 2022
The RefluxStop™ Commercialisation Strategy update
Significant events in the third quarter of 2022
- University of York’s Health Economics Consortium in the UK made an in-depth and robust health economic analysis of RefluxStop™ versus Standard of Care and other alternative treatment options. The analysis clearly showed improved incremental cost-effectiveness ratios (ICERs) of RefluxStop against other anti-reflux interventions. The outcome of this assessment highlights RefluxStop™, as a better treatment option compared to the other therapies in quality-of-life outcomes.
- Implantica initiated a therapy awareness project to enhance the patient, physician and caregiver’s awareness about gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) and anti-reflux surgery.
- A dedicated patient awareness website on GERD is under development and expected to be ready for launch before the end of this year.
- Implantica attended several key scientific congresses and meetings in Germany, Sweden, Spain, Italy, Austria, and Switzerland to raise awareness and medical education about the RefluxStop therapy among the Anti-Reflux experts, patients, and the GERD community at large
- Significant progress has been made in generating real-world evidence on the RefluxStop procedure safety and efficacy. Multiple patient case series articles utilizing RefluxStop patient data are under development and expected to be submitted to scientific journals by the end of this year.
Significant events after the end of the period
- Spire Manchester Hospital is now performing RefluxStop™ procedures. Spire Manchester is part of Spire Healthcare Group, a network of 39 hospitals and 8 clinics across England, Wales and Scotland.
- Implantica receives Global Health & Pharma’s Most Innovative MedTech Company– Central Europe Award for 2022 based on a serious due diligence by GHP, identifying the high innovation level of Implantica.
- Implantica attended the European Foregut Society (EFS) Conference in Belgrade, Serbia where the good clinical outcomes of RefluxStop were presented by Dr. med. Borbély.
- Implantica presented RefluxStop’s health economic impact at one of the biggest Payer conferences, ISPOR, the International Society for Pharmacoeconomics and Outcomes Research Conference in Vienna, Austria. The two abstracts that were presented evaluated the cost-effectiveness of RefluxStop™ as well as the budget impact on the healthcare system in England and Wales. RefluxStop therapy was shown to be more favourable in terms of cost benefit to the competition, in terms of PPI medical therapy, standard-of-care Fundoplication and Magnetic Sphincter Augmentation. This is excellent news for RefluxStop’s™ commercial development as these results will be considered by governmental bodies and insurance companies.
