KLOX Technologies reports on final results from its clinical study on LumiHeal(TM) for the treatment of chronic wounds

Dela

LAVAL, Quebec, May 03, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Today, the final results on KLOX Technologies' (Klox) EUREKA study, which evaluated LumiHeal in the treatment of hard-to-heal, non-responsive, chronic wounds, were reported at the European Wound Management Association, in Amsterdam.

LumiHeal is a CE marked, first-in-class, proprietary, non-thermal and non-invasive treatment solution that utilizes hyper pulsed fluorescence light (HPFL) to treat acute and chronic wounds.

"LumiHeal has shown that it is a viable and effective treatment solution for patients with debilitating hard-to-heal, chronic wounds," stated Dr. Marco Romanelli, MD, PhD, Associate Professor of Dermatology at the School of Medicine, University of Pisa, and Chief of the Wound Healing Research Unit, and President Elect of the World Union of Wound Healing Societies. "LumiHeal represents a new option in the way practitioners can manage and treat hard-to-heal chronic wounds." 

"We are very pleased that the data released today confirmed the interim analysis reported in September 2016 on 33 patients," said Dr. Michel Cimon, MD, Senior Vice President, Chief Medical and Scientific Officer at Klox. "It's an important day for LumiHeal and for FB Advanced Wound Care, our wound care franchise."

Clinical final results from EUREKA study on LumiHeal(TM) and chronic wounds management

Professor Marco Romanelli reported the final study results on the evaluation of real-life use of LumiHeal in Chronic Wounds Management (Venus Leg Ulcers, Diabetic Foot Ulcers, and Pressure Ulcers). The results reported were on 99 patients who completed treatment in the EUREKA study.

Investigators' final analysis supports the strong efficacy profile of LumiHeal in promoting wound closure along with wound bed preparation in hard-to-heal chronic wounds. These results indicate LumiHeal's ability, in a majority of cases, to transition hard-to-heal, non-responsive, chronic wounds into an acute wound setting.   

Investigators found the treatment to be safe, easy to administer and very well tolerated by the subjects' population. Compliance to the study visits was excellent.

The excellent tolerability and compliance profiles is reinforced by the positive action on pain reduction observed during this study, especially in the VLU population.

Final results show:

Out of the 99 patients reported, 71% of them had a prognosis factor of poor healing at study entry;

The average treatment duration for all types of wounds was 80.5 days;

47 of these hard-to heal, chronic wounds, closed completely during the study period VLUs (26), DFUs (16), PU (5);

96% of wounds that closed completely, remained closed throughout the follow up period;

69.2% of VLUs and 68.8% of DFUs were ready for skin graft according to clinician's opinion;

The table below summarizes the top line data:

PU 12.5 15 5 1.90 1.20 0.268

The final results of the EUREKA study show, that taken together with efficacy, treatment ease of use, safety, and a positive impact on pain reduction, LumiHeal has the ability to become a leading option for the treatment and management of hard-to-heal, chronic wounds.
