About Nexstim Plc
Nexstim is a medical technology company aiming to improve rehabilitation for stroke patients. Nexstim has pioneered its technology in brain diagnostics with the Navigated Brain Stimulation (NBS) system as the first and only FDA-cleared and CE-marked navigated Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (nTMS) device for pre-surgical mapping of the motor and speech cortices. Based on the same technology platform, the company has developed a device for stroke therapy called Navigated Brain Therapy (NBT®). In H1 2014, Nexstim initiated a two-year pivotal Phase III study at 12 sites in the US aiming to demonstrate the effectiveness of NBT® and gain FDA clearance for commercialisation in post-acute stroke therapy in the US. Nexstim's shares are listed on Nasdaq First North Finland and Nasdaq First North Sweden. In H2 2015, the Company received a recommendation from the Data Safety Monitoring Board (DSMB) to continue the Phase III stroke therapy NICHE trial without any modifications. The first interim analysis on the NICHE (Navigated Inhibitory rTMS to Contralesional Hemisphere) trial using NBT® was performed after 81 patients reached their primary safety outcome assessment, on track, at six months post-treatment.
