Nexstim Plc Updates the Timeline for its Supplementary E-FIT Phase III Trial in Stroke Rehabilitation
Company announcement, Helsinki, 19 May 2017 at 9:00 am
Nexstim Plc (NXTMH:HEX, NXTMS:STO) ("Nexstim" or "Company"), a medical technology company developing and marketing pioneering navigated non-invasive brain stimulation systems for both therapeutic and diagnostic applications, today provided a timeline update for its supplemental Phase III clinical trial in stroke rehabilitation, known as E-FIT (ELECTRIC FIELD NAVIGATED 1HZ RTMS FOR POST-STROKE MOTOR RECOVERY TRIAL).
The trial began enrolment in March of 2017. Start-up issues at some of the enrolling sites have created a slight delay in the enrolment rate and Nexstim now expects the E-FIT trial to be completed in Q2 2018. This change in timing has no significant impact on the costs associated with the E-FIT trial. We are now encouraged by the recent rate of patient enrolment.
The E-FIT clinical trial, which is evaluating Nexstim's NBT® system, is designed to provide data to supplement the completed Phase III NICHE trial. The supplemental trial is being conducted at five clinical sites in the U.S.A. and is expected to recruit a total of 60 subjects.
