The CoFI System

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 26 ottobre 2019

CorFlow Therapeutics AG ( announced that the FDA has designated the company’s CoFI (CorFlow Controlled Flow Infusion) System as a “Breakthrough Device” with a broad indication-for-use statement: “The CoFI™System is indicated for diagnostic assessment of the coronary microcirculation immediately following PCI (“stenting”), and to be a platform for controlled infusion of therapeutic agents into the microcirculation with or without vessel occlusion.” This FDA designation is a process aimed at fast-forwarding clinical development and regulatory review of the CoFI™ System. Toward that end, CorFlow continues to enroll patients into the ongoing European “MOCA I” clinical trial of the CoFI™ System and will expedite US submissions for clinical trials as a result of the Breakthrough Designation. The MOCA I trial is a safety and feasibility trial in 40 acute heart attack patients.
Based on recent market research in the US and Europe, CorFlow estimates that more than 170,000 patients annually need new technologies to improve their coronary microcirculation after standard stent implantation. Although current stent technologies have proven to be crucial in saving patients from death and complications after a heart attack, these technologies do not address the unmet medical need for improved coronary microcirculation. Indeed, reduced coronary microcirculation has proven to be an independent marker for complications after a heart attack such as heart failure and death.The objective of the FDA Breakthrough Designation Program is to provide patients and healthcare providers with timely access to innovative medical devices by speeding their development, assessment and review, while preserving the standards for medical device approvals. CMS has also instituted a new rule that will increase payments for medical devices designated by the FDA as breakthrough devices.
