Interim report January - September 2013
SALES GROWTH REMAINS STRONG AND PROGRESS IS MADE IN THE REGISTRATION PROCESS FOR STEEN SOLUTION™ IN THE USA
SIGNIFICANT EVENTS IN THE THIRD QUARTER
- The company had a meeting with the FDA at which it was decided that an advisory committee meeting will be held at the beginning of 2014. This is positive since an advisory committee meeting precedes a registration decision and concludes the discussion of the documentation.
- The FDA decided that the clinics included in the study may continue to transplant lungs perfused with STEEN Solution™. At the end of the quarter, a total of 52 patients in the USA had been transplanted with lungs made available through the use of Steen Solution™ and XVIVO’s perfusion machine XPS™.
- Dr. Joel Cooper is to become XVIVO Perfusion’s Medical Advisor. Dr. Cooper was the first surgeon in the world to carry out a successful lung transplant and is internationally recognized for his groundbreaking progress in the treatment of lung disease. Dr. Cooper will bring his expertise in clinical lung transplantation and contribute to the company's clinical development.
- An agreement to transfer contract manufacturing of STEEN Solution™ was concluded during the quarter. This will initially involve non-recurring cost of around SEK 1 million, but within one year it will result in improved gross margin on the product.
