Report this content

Episurf Medical (Nasdaq: EPIS B) today announces that the enrolment of patients has been initiated in the US and in Europe for the company’s IDE clinical trial for the Episealer® knee implant. The clinical trial, EPIC-Knee Episealer® Knee System IDE Clinical Study, is a prospective, randomised, controlled multi-centre study with two years’ follow-up of 180 subjects. The clinical trial is conducted at several clinics in the US, Canada, Germany, UK and Denmark.

“We aim at being the world leader in our emerging orthopaedic niche, where today, a considerable amount of patients are left without satisfactory treatments. This pivotal study study is the single largest and most important clinical trial that we are engaged in, given that the US market is, by far, the largest orthopaedic market in the world. If the clinical results generated for the Episealer® in Europe can be re-generated in the US, then we are facing a highly exciting future. Initiated patient enrolment in the IDE study is a milestone for us” says Pål Ryfors, CEO Episurf Medical.
