Avinger, Inc. Announces 30-Day Interim Results for its Vision Clinical Study
May 20 15
Avinger, Inc. announced 30-day interim results for its VISION clinical study. VISION is designed to evaluate the safety and efficacy of the Pantheris system to perform directional atherectomy, while for the first time ever allowing physicians to use real-time intravascular imaging to aid in the removal of plaque from diseased lower extremity arteries. Results were presented at the EuroPCR 2015 medical conference. VISION interim results demonstrated that Pantheris treatment residual stenosis of less than or equal to 50% was achieved in 96% of lesions, surpassing the primary efficacy endpoint performance goal. Both blood flow measurement (Ankle Brachial Index) and symptom-based (Rutherford Classification) outcomes measures showed statistically significant improvement across all patients undergoing 30-day follow-up. Safety data at the time of procedure and through 30 days also indicated an extremely favorable acute safety profile, with zero dissections and zero perforations related to the use of the Pantheris catheter as adjudicated by an independent Clinical Events Committee (CEC). The study's primary safety endpoint is defined as freedom from a composite of major adverse events (MAEs) in less than or equal to 43% of patients through six-month follow-up. While not representative of six-month results, 7% of patients in the VISION trial had experienced an MAE through 30 days. In addition to positive clinical outcomes, VISION study histology results highlighted the tremendous precision that real-time optical coherence tomography (OCT) guidance enables during atherectomy. Across all lesions treated and analyzed for histology, the average percent area of adventitia in the atherectomy tissue samples collected was 1.0%. Histology results are expected to be a key differentiator in the VISION trial, and data correlations are anticipated to further support the hypothesis that improved atherectomy accuracy will result in less arterial wall disruption, ultimately helping to minimize restenosis and need for retreatment. Avinger completed patient enrollment in the VISION clinical trial in March 2015. Data collection and analysis is ongoing for the six-month follow-up period defined in the study. The Company expects to present six-month data in the fourth quarter of 2015. Following availability of six-month data, primary endpoint analysis results will be used to support a 510(k) application with the FDA.
