The Axonics patent portfolio represents technology internally developed by Axonics and technology developed under license from the Alfred Mann Foundation.
The Axonics r-SNM System has obtained European CE mark approval, Health Canada approval, and Australian Therapeutic Goods Administration approval for the treatment of overactive bladder, urinary retention, and fecal incontinence.
Currently, Axonics is in the follow-up phase of its 129-patient pivotal clinical study, ARTISAN-SNM, designed to gain U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) approval in the United States for urinary urgency incontinence. All patients in the ARTISAN-SNM clinical study are scheduled to reach their six-month post-implant endpoint on or about, the end of 2018.
About Overactive Bladder, Fecal Incontinence and Sacral Neuromodulation
Overactive bladder affects an estimated 85 million adults in the U.S. and Europe. Another 40 million are reported to suffer from fecal incontinence. SNM therapy is an effective and durable treatment that has been widely used and reimbursed in Europe and the U.S. for the past two decades. SNM is the only treatment with proven clinical superiority to standard medical therapy and patients receiving SNM report significantly higher quality of life than patients undergoing drug treatment.
About Axonics Modulation Technologies, Inc.
Axonics, based in Irvine, CA, is focused on development and commercialization of a novel implantable SNM system for patients with urinary and bowel dysfunction, and disrupting the SNM market currently dominated by one large provider. The Axonics r-SNM system offers a temporary disposable external trial system, a miniaturized and rechargeable long-lived neurostimulator that is qualified to function for at least 15 years, a tined lead as well as patient-friendly accessories such as a charging system optimized for minimal charge time without overheating, a small, easy to use patient remote control and an intuitive clinician programmer that facilitates lead placement and programming.
