Endonovo Therapeutics Provides Corporate Update and 2018 Outlook
- Announces Series C Preferred Stock Offering
- Updates Status of Clinical Pipeline in Central Nervous System Disorders
LOS ANGELES, CA, Jan. 16, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- - Endonovo Therapeutics, Inc. (OTCQB: ENDV) ("Endonovo" or the "Company"), a clinical-stage developer of non-invasive electroceutical devices for the treatment of central nervous system (CNS) disorders, has provided a corporate update and outlook for 2018.
Plans to Complete Clinical Trial to Study Effects of tPEMF in Patients with Brain Injury
Endonovo plans to complete a single center, prospective, controlled, clinical trial of tPEMF to evaluate the effects of tPEMF in patients with brain injury and external ventricular drain (EVD) in an intensive care unit (ICU) setting. This clinical study is an extension of a safety trial and will be open to all patients who have or are fitted with an external ventricular drain (EVD) to remove excess cerebrospinal fluid (CSF).
Redesign tPEMF Products for Use in Central Nervous System Disorders
Endonovo plans to redesign tPEMF products for use in CNS disorders in order to make its tPEMF therapy easier to use and increase patient compliance. Endonovo believes that industrial design and engineering of non-invasive electroceutical devices will be a critical component to the precise stimulation of areas in the CNS that require treatment and allow patients to use the therapy in an in-home setting.
Initiate Previously Planned Studies of tPEMF in Post-Concussion Syndrome and Acute Concussions
Endonovo plans to initiate previously planned clinical trials to study the effects of tPEMF in patients with Post-Concussion Syndrome (PCS) and Acute Sports-related Concussions upon the redesign of its tPEMF devices for use in CNS disorders.
Initiate Previously Planned Feasibility Study for Use of tPEMF In Patients with Multiple Sclerosis
Endonovo plans to initiate an open-label study of tPEMF treatment in patients with multiple sclerosis (MS) that will be used to assess feasibility and tolerability of tPEMF therapy and to generate preliminary data on clinically relevant outcomes.
Pursuing Licensing, Distribution, and Partnership Opportunities for FDA-Cleared Devices
Endonovo plans to commercialize its CE-Marked and FDA-Cleared Electroceutical™ therapy in China, Japan, Korea and other international markets. Endonovo has already initiated dialogue with potential licensees, distributors and joint venture partners in Asia. Endonovo will further look to establish distribution agreements and licenses in the Unites States for cosmetic surgery and orthopedic indications or explore the establishment of its own sales and marketing channels.
Announces Series C Preferred Stock Offering
Endonovo has announced a Senior Secured Series C Preferred Stock Offering (the "Series C Stock") to raise up to $8 million in funding. The Series C Stock is a fixed-price redeemable preferred stock that accrues an 8% dividend per annum paid in quarterly installments. The Series C Stock contains two year warrants to purchase common shares, the number of warrants will be such number as to have an aggregate exercise price equal to 20% of the purchase price of the Series C Stock. The exercise price of the warrants will be the closing price of Endonovo's common stock on the date Endonovo receives fully executed closing documents from purchasers of the Series C Stock and the subscription amount. To date, Endonovo has raised approximately $1 million of the Series C Stock. For more information on the Series C Stock, interested parties can find the Company contact information below.
"2017 was a pivotal year for Endonovo, which saw the company position itself as a clinical stage developer of non-invasive Electroceutical therapies by acquiring a portfolio of intellectual property, a clinical pipeline in central nervous system disorders, and FDA-Cleared and CE Marked products," said Alan Collier, Co-Founder and CEO of Endonovo Therapeutics.
"Now having completed this acquisition, we are looking to position the company for continued growth by redeeming our outstanding convertible notes and uplisting the company onto a national stock exchange where we can increase shareholder value."
"As we prepare restarting and completing a previously on-going clinical trial to evaluate our non-invasive medical devices in brain injury, we will also work to initiate several previously planned clinical trials to evaluate our Electroceuticals in other CNS disorders."
"The market for CNS therapies currently lacks effective treatments for many CNS disorders, such as traumatic brain injuries and stroke because of the difficulty in delivering efficacious amounts of drugs to the brain. However, our highly differentiated and non-invasive approach is not limited by the blood-brain barrier to deliver our therapy to the central nervous system, which presents a significant opportunity for Endonovo to capture a significant share of the CNS therapeutics market estimated to be worth $128.9 billion by 2025."
2018 Expected Milestones
· Restart clinical trial for tPEMF treatment in patients with brain injury and external ventricular drain (EVD)
· Initiate clinical trial for tPEMF treatment in patients with Post-Concussion Syndrome
· Initiate clinical trial for tPEMF treatment in patients with acute sports-related concussions
· Initiate pilot clinical trial for tPEMF treatment in patients with relapsing forms of multiple sclerosis
· 1-2 license agreements to be signed by the end of 2018
· Uplist the Company's common stock onto a national stock exchange
About Targeted-Pulsed Electromagnetic Fields (tPEMF)
Targeted-Pulsed Electromagnetic Fields (tPEMF) use radiofrequency waves at 27.12 MHz to deliver electromagnetic energy to tissues. The Company's tPEMF technology works by restoring key electrochemical process that initiate the anti-inflammatory and growth factor cascades necessary for healing to occur. tPEMF technology has been shown to accelerate the production of the endogenous constitutive nitric oxide synthase systems (cNOS): the anti-inflammatory system, resulting in increased blood and lymph flow, and decreased pain and edema.
The Company's tPEMF technology has been evaluated in 5 randomized controlled clinical trials and has demonstrated significant reductions in pain, edema and use of pain medication.
In pre-clinical studies of neuroinflammation and brain injury, the Company's tPEMF technology has demonstrated significant reduction of neuroinflammation, including a 5-fold reduction of IL-1 beta, a master regulator of neuroinflammation, when compared to untreated animals. Furthermore, in pre-clinical studies of angiogenesis (promotion of new blood vessels), the Company's tPEMF technology demonstrated a 500 percent increase in angiogenesis at 8 weeks.
An Overview of the Company's tPEMF Technology can be found in the presentations page on the Investor Section of the Company's website.
