AqueSys Announces Completion of XEN Gel Stent U.S. Clinical Trial Enrollment

AqueSys, Inc. announced the completion of enrollment in the U.S. investigational study of the XEN 45 Gel Stent. The XEN Gel Stent is the first glaucoma device designed to achieve similar intraocular pressure (IOP) reduction as traditional subconjunctival trabeculectomy and tube shunt procedures through a minimally invasive technique with less associated surgical and post-operative risk. The study, a prospective, multicenter single-arm clinical trial conducted at 12 sites within the U.S., is designed to evaluate the safety and performance of the AqueSys XEN 45 Gel Stent in subjects with refractory glaucoma where previous glaucoma treatments were not effective. The company will collect 12-month data on all subjects and submit the data to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to seek market clearance.
