Intersect ENT, Inc. Announces Positive Preliminary Clinical Results for the Propel Mini Steroid Releasing Implant in Patients with Frontal Sinus Disease

Intersect ENT, Inc. announced preliminary results of PROGRESS, a prospective, randomized, blinded, multi-center trial to assess the safety and efficacy of the PROPEL mini steroid releasing sinus implant when used following frontal sinus surgery. The study met its primary efficacy endpoint, demonstrating a statistically significant 38% relative reduction in the need for post-operative interventions, such as the need for additional surgical procedures or need for oral steroid prescription, compared to surgery alone. The device placement success rate was 100% and there were no device-related adverse events. As many as one in four patients undergoing surgery for chronic sinusitis suffers from frontal sinus disease. The trial is intended to support an expanded indication for placement of PROPEL mini in the frontal sinuses, which are located behind the eyebrows. PROPEL mini is currently indicated for placement in the ethmoid sinuses, located just behind the bridge of the nose. Intersect ENT’s PROPEL and PROPEL mini are the first and only steroid releasing sinus implants approved by the FDA for use in patients following ethmoid sinus surgery. The products release mometasone furoate, an advanced steroid with anti-inflammatory properties, directly into the sinus lining, then dissolve. Use of PROPEL maintains the open passages created in surgery, reducing the need for oral steroids and additional surgical procedures. PROPEL’s effectiveness is supported by the high level of clinical evidence, Level 1a, showing reduction of postoperative intervention, inflammation, scarring, and need for oral steroids in post-operative patients.

For the quarter, the company’s revenue increased 77% to $15.2 million, from $8.6 million in the same period of 2014. This increase is attributable to higher unit sales driven by the acquisition of new accounts, expanded adoption by existing customers and a modest price increase implemented at the start of the year.

Intersect ENT Mulls Acquisitions

Intersect ENT, Inc. (NasdaqGM:XENT) is seeking acquisitions. Jeri Hilleman, Chief Financial Officer of Intersect ENT said, “Together the TMs and sales consultants will continue to acquire new accounts, while driving depth in existing accounts through both expanding the number of physician users in a given account, and by increasing the frequency of PROPEL insertion by current users. While we are not going to update this measure regularly, we do expect to more than double the number of sales consultants to over 20 by year-end. We continue to believe that we have significant headroom for growth, with PROPEL being used in approximately 20,000 of the roughly 270,000 FESS procedures performed so far this year, representing less than 10% adoption.”
