Mainstay Medical Announces Completion of Enrollment of RESTORE Clinical Trial of ReActiv8® in the United States


Mainstay Medical Holdings plc today announced the completion of enrollment in its RESTORE randomized clinical study of ReActiv8 for the treatment of intractable chronic low back pain. The study is designed to provide a direct comparison to optimized medical management for the purpose of testing the hypothesis that the addition of ReActiv8 Restorative Neurostimulation therapy to current care paradigms results in significant improvements in back pain-related disability.

The RESTORE (ReActiv8 Stimulation Therapy vs Optimal Medical Management: A Randomized Evaluation) clinical study is a prospective, randomized controlled trial conducted at 25 leading centers in the U.S. Eligible patients were randomized to either continue with their optimal medical management or ReActiv8 Restorative Neurostimulation therapy plus optimal medical management. Patient-reported outcomes are being collected at regular intervals out to the one-year primary endpoint, at which time the patients in the control arm are offered implantation with the ReActiv8 system. The Co-Principal Investigators of the RESTORE study are Dr. Frank Schwab, Chair of Orthopedic Spine Surgery at Lenox Hill Hospital and Chief of Orthopedic Spine Surgery for Northwell Health System; Dr. Chris Gilligan, Director of the Spine Center at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and assistant professor of Anesthesia at Harvard Medical School; and Dr. Kiran Patel, Director of Pain Medicine, Lenox Hill Hospital and Founder & CEO, NYC Neuromodulation Center of Excellence.

Jason Hannon, CEO of Mainstay Medical, stated: “We are proud to have reached this important milestone in the RESTORE clinical trial as we continue to demonstrate the clinical efficacy and positive economic impact of ReActiv8. We expect the initial data readout from the study in the second half of 2024, and we look forward to sharing the data with our physician customers and their patients, as well as using it to further engage managed care organizations in the United States to expand commercial insurance access to this incredible therapy. I would like to thank Dr. Frank Schwab, Dr. Chris Gilligan, and Dr. Kiran Patel for acting as Co-Principal Investigators of this important study, as well as each of the enrolling sites and all of the participating patients.”

“This type of randomized, controlled clinical trial in this difficult-to-treat and underserved patient population will produce high-quality data comparing ReActiv8 to the current standard of care,” said Drs. Frank Schwab, Chris Gilligan, and Kiran Patel, Co-Principal Investigators of the RESTORE study . “Once the data is published, it will meaningfully add to the growing body of clinical evidence regarding ReActiv8 and firmly establish the role of this therapy in treating mechanical low back pain patients .”

Drs. Schwab, Gilligan, and Patel continued: ”The RESTORE trial represents a substantial addition to the clinical evidence behind treatment options for this patient population who have extremely limited options beyond temporary palliative treatments and drugs. Directly addressing the underlying issue of muscular dysfunction can represent a substantial advancement in treatment options. We would like to express sincere thanks to the patients who agreed to be screened for this study, the trial investigators and their hard-working staff, and the Mainstay team for their passion and commitment to the program. We look forward to the results of this trial to prove the degree to which ReActiv8 can improve the lives of these patients above and beyond what is currently used to treat them.”
