Feedback from responses to FDA anticipated in 30 days
Commercialization remains on track in first half of 2024 pending FDA clearance
Product potential for transformative improvement in neurosurgery as first known sEEG-guided RF system that records and ablates nervous tissue with the added benefit of temperature control
EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn., Nov. 07, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — NeuroOne Medical Technologies Corporation (NASDAQ: NMTC) (“NeuroOne” or the “Company”), a medical technology company focused on improving surgical care options and outcomes for patients suffering from neurological disorders, announced today that it has responded to the Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) questions regarding the Company’s previous submission of a 510(k) for its OneRF™ Ablation System. The Company expects to receive additional communication back from the FDA in thirty days or less.
The OneRF system uses the already implanted sEEG electrodes to record brain activity and allow for ablation of nervous tissue when connected to the Company’s proprietary radio frequency (RF) generator. If cleared by the FDA, NeuroOne’s OneRF 510(k) submission represents the first step in bringing to market an innovative RF ablation system in the field of neurology and neurosurgery.
As the Company’s first therapeutic device, OneRF is a combination system that includes both diagnostic and therapeutic capabilities. The system utilizes a customized RF generator with real-time temperature monitoring capabilities, allowing clinicians to have greater control over temperature management during the ablation. Designed to both record brain activity and ablate nervous tissue using the same electrode, the system is designed to offer the potential for a safer clinical option for patients as well as lower costs by reducing the number of invasive procedures and hospital stays for patients. NeuroOne estimates the current brain ablation market to be at least $100M worldwide and growing rapidly, with the potential to grow multiple fold based on large addressable patient populations with unmet clinical needs.
Dave Rosa, CEO of NeuroOne, commented, “We remain bullish on the potential for this technology to cause a paradigm shift in how patients are treated in ablation procedures. The potential to reduce hospital stays, additional procedures, complications and cost gives us confidence that this will have a meaningful impact in the market. We hope to complete discussions with the FDA in the near future as we prepare for a targeted commercial launch in the first half of 2024.”
NeuroOne Medical Technologies Corporation is a developmental stage company committed to providing minimally invasive and hi-definition solutions for EEG recording, brain stimulation and ablation solutions for patients suffering from epilepsy, Parkinson’s disease, dystonia, essential tremors, chronic pain due to failed back surgeries, and other related neurological disorders that may improve patient outcomes and reduce procedural costs. The Company may also pursue applications for other areas such as depression, mood disorders, pain, incontinence, high blood pressure, and artificial intelligence.
