BaroNova, Inc. Announces the Results of ENDObesity(R) I Clinical Trial

BAROnova, Inc., presented data from their ENDObesity I clinical trial at the annual Society of American Gastrointestinal and Endoscopic Surgeons (SAGES) meeting. During the study, which was conducted in Sydney, Australia, obese subjects with a BMI ranging from 30-50 kg/m(2) were treated with BAROnova's weight-loss device, the TransPyloric Shuttle(R) (TPS(R)). After six months, patients achieved an average excess weight loss (EWL) of 50%, while subjects in the BMI range of 30-40 kg/m(2) achieved an even greater average EWL of 58%. The device was well tolerated and subjects were discharged home from an outpatient setting within two hours of TPS insertion without the nausea and discomfort that are typically experienced with intragastric therapies. The weight loss associated with the treatment was substantial and progressive, without a plateau, throughout the six-month study.
