BioSig Commences Clinical Trial Enrollment for PURE EP System
Westport, CT, Nov. 21, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- BioSig Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: BSGM) (“BioSig” or the “Company”), a medical technology company developing a proprietary biomedical signal processing platform designed to improve signal fidelity and uncover the full range of ECG and intra-cardiac signals, today announced that the Company commenced its first clinical trial for its PURE EP™ System.
Texas Cardiac Arrhythmia Research Foundation (TCARF) in Austin, Texas, is the first institution to conduct patient cases under the clinical trial titled, “Novel Cardiac Signal Processing System for Electrophysiology Procedures (PURE EP 2.0 Study)”. Eight patient enrollments were achieved during the first week of the trial. The data collected during the trial is planned to be submitted for abstract consideration at leading industry events throughout 2020, including The Heart Rhythm Scientific Sessions in May 2020.
“Our first clinical trial is an inflection point for our Company, and we are pleased to initiate it with Texas Cardiac Arrhythmia Institute at St. David’s Hospital in Austin, Texas,” commented Kenneth L. Londoner, Chairman and CEO of BioSig Technologies, Inc.
The Shareholder Letter issued by the Company on November 14, 2019 announced several upcoming installations of the Company’s PURE EP(tm) System, including Mayo Clinic Jacksonville, FL, which is also expected to take part in the clinical trial. This allows the Company to commercialize its product in the rapidly growing $4.6 billion electrophysiology market, and the Company believes trial data may play an important role in advancing broader commercial adoption across the universe of medical centers providing catheter ablation treatments.
About BioSig Technologies
BioSig Technologies is a medical technology company developing a proprietary biomedical signal processing platform designed to improve the electrophysiology (EP) marketplace (www.biosig.com). Led by a proven management team and a veteran Board of Directors, BioSig Technologies is preparing to commercialize its PURE EPTM System. The technology has been developed to address an unmet need in a large and growing market.
The Company’s first product, PURE EPTM System is a computerized system intended for acquiring, digitizing, amplifying, filtering, measuring and calculating, displaying, recording and storing of electrocardiographic and intracardiac signals for patients undergoing electrophysiology (EP) procedures in an EP laboratory. The system is indicated for use under the supervision of licensed healthcare practitioners who are responsible for interpreting the data. This novel cardiac signal acquisition and display system is engineered to assist electrophysiologists in clinical decision-making during electrophysiology procedures in patients with abnormal heart rates and rhythms. BioSig’s ultimate goal is to deliver technology to improve upon catheter ablation treatments for the prevalent and potentially deadly arrhythmias, Atrial Fibrillation and Ventricular Tachycardia. BioSig has partnered with Minnetronix on technology development and received FDA 510(k) clearance for the PURE EPTM System in August 2018.
