NeurAxis Announces New Submission to the FDA for the Expansion of its IB-Stim Label; Provides Compliance with NYSE Guidelines on Audit Disclosure

06/07/24

CARMEL, Ind., June 07, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- NeurAxis, Inc. (“NeurAxis,” or the “Company”) (NYSE American: NRXS), a medical technology company commercializing neuromodulation therapies addressing chronic and debilitating conditions in children and adults, today announced a submission to the FDA for expansion of its IB-Stim label. The new submission is significant as it would allow access to a larger patient population beyond 11-18 years of age and allow for marketing of 4 devices per prescription.

A systematic literature review demonstrated that at least 9 published studies that used the IB-Stim technology in children with chronic abdominal pain used a total of four devices over 4 consecutive weeks. The systematic literature review also demonstrated that many patients as young as 8 years and up to 21 years, which is outside of the current indication age range, have been successfully treated with IB-Stim. No study reported serious adverse events. These data were submitted to the FDA through a 510k application to expand the current label.

“We are excited about our new submission to the FDA to expand the label for IB-Stim which would include ages 8-21, and 4 devices over 4 weeks. IB-Stim is currently indicated for ages 11-18 years of age, using 3 devices not to exceed 4. This potential label expansion could impact many children who would otherwise fall into an “off-label” category and allow for them to receive the proper care that is supported by the scientific literature. We are cautiously optimistic that the FDA will grant the request for a label expansion,” said Brian Carrico, President and Chief Executive Officer of NeurAxis. “We continue to make progress on our robust pipeline of indications, as we have positioned NeurAxis to become a leader in the treatment of disorders of the gut-brain interactions,” Mr. Carrico concluded.
