Reflow Medical Enrolls First Patients in Pilot Study of Coronary Sirolimus-Eluting Retrievable Scaffold System (Spur Elute)


Reflow Medical, Inc., a developer of innovative devices focused on cardiovascular disease, announces the first patient enrollments in “A pilot study of the Drug-Eluting Coronary Spur™ StEnt as a Primary trEatment for in-stent Restenosis (ISR) of the CORONARY arteries” (DEEPER CORONARY, NCT06117150). ISR is a common clinical problem that can generate significant health care costs and is often associated with an increased risk of death and rehospitalization. Known as the Coronary Sirolimus-Eluting Retrievable Scaffold System, or “Spur Elute,” this unique clinical solution is intended to treat patients with coronary ISR by transferring a proprietary sirolimus drug formulation to the diseased lesion without leaving a permanent metallic implant behind. The study is approved to enroll a total of 10 patients at up to three centers in New Zealand.

Principal Investigator Prof. Scott Harding, M.D., is an interventional cardiologist specializing in the treatment of complex coronary disease at Wellington Hospital in Wellington, New Zealand. He shared his experience with the Spur Elute, saying, “It’s exciting to take part in the study of this novel platform, which has the potential to successfully treat patients suffering from in-stent restenosis.”

William Lombardi, M.D., and Kathleen E. Kearney, M.D., interventional cardiologists at the UW Medicine Heart Institute in Seattle, Washington, were in attendance at the first enrollment. “Being able to deliver anti-proliferative drugs while maintaining blood flow can be a crucial element for treating ISR patients,” said Dr. Lombardi, who is the Director of the Complex Coronary Program at the Institute.

The Spur Elute is a novel device whose Retrievable Scaffold Therapy (RST) creates channels to increase uptake of antiproliferative drugs, while dilating the arterial lumen to maximize gain during the procedure. The system is then removed, without leaving anything behind.

“These enrollments take us one step closer to enabling physicians to utilize the Spur platform for treating patients with cardiovascular disease, and ISR in particular,” said Isa Rizk, CEO and Co-Founder of Reflow Medical, Inc. “We are so proud of the entire team and grateful to our external CRO, Mobius Medical, for reaching this milestone.” The pilot study of the Spur Elute for accessing and treating ISR follows last year’s successful introduction of the Reflow coraCatheters™ line for complex percutaneous coronary interventions (PCI).

New Esri Press Book by Jack Dangermond Explores Creating a Better Future through Modern GIS17.7.2024 20:46:00 CEST | Press release

Esri, the global leader in location intelligence, today announced the publication next month of The Power of Where: A Geographic Approach to the World's Greatest Challenges. Written by Esri president Jack Dangermond with a dedicated Esri team and numerous contributors, this important new book explores the geographic approach—a way of solving problems using spatial analysis to perceive and understand patterns ranging from wildlife migration and rising seas to urban planning and food production. According to Dangermond, sustainability begins with geography. "I believed this when we started Esri, and I'm even more convinced today," says Dangermond. "GIS [geographic information system technology] provides a platform for addressing problems, exploring alternatives, designing solutions, and sharing them in a visual way that inspires action." The Power of Where shows through maps and stories how the growing GIS community is facing humanity's big challenges, including climate change, hunger, w

Egle Therapeutics to share preclinical data for its first autoimmune disease program, EGL-003, with an oral presentation at the 2024 Promise of Interleukin-2 Therapy Meeting17.7.2024 18:00:00 CEST | Press release

Egle Therapeutics, a biotechnology company focused on advancing the next generation of regulatory T cell-focused therapies for oncology and auto-immunity, will deliver an oral presentation at The Promise of Interleukin-2 Therapy meeting taking place in Paris from September 4th to 7th, 2024. The presentation, entitled “EGL-003, a novel IL-2 mutein to selectively expand and activate regulatory T cells and improve therapeutic efficacy in autoimmune disease”, will show evidence that EGL-003, a non-targeted Fc-fused IL-2 agonist mutein, selectively binds to regulatory T cells (Treg) and induces Treg IL-2 signaling. The resulting increase of Treg frequencies was observed in vitro and in different mouse models. Accordingly, EGL-003 significantly improved clinical, macroscopic, and histological parameters in a DSS-induced colitis mouse model with expansion of tissue-resident Tregs. EGL-003 is the first drug candidate being developed for treatment of autoimmune diseases in Egle’s pipeline and h
