AgNovos Healthcare Receives Investigational Device Exemption (IDE) for Breakthrough Spine Device
AgNovos Healthcare, a developer of medical technology products leveraging regenerative medicine to treat the local effects of bone disease, announced today that its newest investigational product, AGN1 Local Osteo-enhancement Procedure (LOEP) Small Volume (SV) kit has received an Investigational Device Exemption (IDE) from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. The IDE for the AGN1 LOEP SV kit will enable the study of the device’s ability to reduce pain and support mobility in patients with vertebral compression fractures.
"We are pleased that FDA has approved the IDE for the STAND study,” said Tanner Howe, President and CEO of AgNovos Healthcare. “We believe that the AGN1 LOEP SV kit has the potential to transform the treatment landscape for vertebral compression fractures. It is designed to work differently than traditional vertebral augmentation because the AGN1 implant material is intended to be resorbed and replaced by new bone. This treatment is in line with the Company’s mission of improving the quality of life of millions of women and men impacted every day by bone disease, including osteoporosis.”
“This approval allows us to advance our clinical research program and continue to evaluate the treatment’s safety and efficacy in the STAND study,” added Stephanie Kladakis PhD, Senior Vice President of Research & Development and Global Regulatory Affairs at AgNovos. “Our team has spoken with numerous clinicians in the U.S. and Europe who are looking for alternative approaches to traditional vertebral augmentation to treat patients with certain vertebral compression fractures. I am pleased that we are one step closer on our pathway to making a new approach available to this patient population.”
Almost 1.5 million vertebral compression fractures are diagnosed every year. These fractures are often caused by bone loss associated with osteoporosis. They can lead to debilitating pain and a downward spiral of reduced mobility, independence, and increased risk of additional fractures. Given aging populations in the U.S. and globally, the burden to healthcare systems is expected to increase over time. Other surgical approaches to address painful fractures in the spine exist but can have downsides, including the potential to increase fracture risk in adjacent vertebral bodies due to changes in the stiffness of the treated vertebral bodies.
About AGN1 LOEP SV Kit
The AGN1 LOEP SV kit is an investigational device intended to treat stable but painful vertebral compression fractures in a minimally-invasive procedure. The device was previously granted Breakthrough Device designation by FDA. The Breakthrough Devices program is intended to expedite the development and review of devices that are either novel or have the potential to benefit patients with life-threatening or debilitating conditions.
The AGN1 LOEP SV kit contains all instruments and components necessary to prepare the fractured vertebral body for injection with AGN1, a resorbable, osteoconductive, tri-phasic implant material. While this kit is investigational in all jurisdictions, the AGN1 implant material is available in a CE-marked kit to form new bone in the pelvis and other extremities. Preclinical and clinical research has shown that treatment with the device leads to the formation of new bone and an immediate, substantial and durable increase in the strength of osteoporotic femurs.

Latest Cloud Survey From Denodo Reveals Advanced Workloads Moving to the Cloud While Hybrid and Multi-Cloud Management Skills Are in High Demand18.5.2021 10:00:00 EEST | Press release
Data virtualization leader Denodo’s fourth annual cloud usage survey finds organizations are accelerating their cloud journey to take advantage of its flexibility, control costs, speed time-to-market, and simplify data management. According to survey respondents, which included 150 global business and IT professionals from various industry sectors, hybrid-cloud deployment remains the dominant choice, as more than a third of these organizations (35 percent) use this model. Private cloud has shown some vibrant usage, accounting for almost a quarter of all workloads (24 percent), followed by public cloud, which remained almost flat at 16 percent. Multi-cloud remains a popular choice for almost one in ten organizations (9 percent) who opt to procure best of breed applications, data repositories, and infrastructure orchestration technologies among different cloud service providers to avoid a single vendor lock-in.

Celltrion Confirms Neutralising Potency Against Emerging SARS-CoV-2 Variants With Anti-COVID-19 Monoclonal Antibody Treatment regdanvimab (CT-P59)18.5.2021 09:39:00 EEST | Press release
Celltrion Group today announced that CT-P59, an anti-COVID-19 monoclonal antibody treatment candidate, has confirmed neutralising potency against emerging variants first identified in New York (B.1.526), Nigeria (B.1.525) and India (B.1.617).1 The Korea Disease Control and Prevention Agency (KDCA) has assessed the test by combining the antibody with recent emerging variants first identified in New York (B.1.526), Nigeria (B.1.525) and Brazil (P.1); infecting the host cell with this combination to identify neutralising effect against the variants with CT-P59. The monoclonal antibody candidate CT-P59 demonstrated strong neutralising capability against the New York (B.1.526) and Nigeria (B.1.525) variants and produced neutralising titers against the Indian variant (B.1.617) in an in-vitro pseudo virus assay.1 The company plans to study neutralising titers against additional emerging strains, including the Brazil variant (P.1)2, in order to proactively address the pandemic as the virus con

Medicago and GSK Announce Positive Interim Phase 2 Results for Adjuvanted COVID-19 Vaccine Candidate18.5.2021 08:00:00 EEST | Press release
Medicago, a biopharmaceutical company headquartered in Quebec City, and GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) are pleased to report positive interim Phase 2 clinical trial safety and immunogenicity data for Medicago’s plant-derived COVID-19 vaccine candidate, which has been tested in combination with GSK’s pandemic adjuvant. These results are part of the ongoing Phase 2/3 study and reiterate the promising profile observed during Phase 1 testing. Immunogenicity, as measured by the neutralizing antibody titer, was high - about 10 times higher than those in a panel of sera from patients recovering from COVID-19. No related severe adverse events were reported and reactogenicity was generally mild to moderate and short in duration. “We are very excited to see such positive results from the Phase 2 data. After two doses, the adjuvanted vaccine candidate induced robust neutralizing antibody and cellular immune responses in all subjects, irrespectively of age,” said Nathalie Landry, Executive Vice President,
