Positive Results for the Axonics® RELAX-OAB Clinical Study Presented at the International Continence Society Congress
Axonics Modulation Technologies, Inc., developer of the first rechargeable Sacral Neuromodulation (r-SNM™) system for the treatment of urinary and bowel dysfunction, today announced the presentation of positive results from its prospective, multicenter clinical study at the 2017 International Continence Society (ICS) Congress in Florence, Italy.
The presentation, entitled “A prospective multicenter clinical study evaluating a miniaturized rechargeable sacral neuromodulation system for the safe and effective treatment of overactive bladder (RELAX-OAB study),” was delivered by Bertil F.M. Blok, M.D., PhD, Dept. of Urology, Erasmus University Medical Centre, Rotterdam, Netherlands.
A total of 51 overactive bladder patients with symptoms of urinary urgency incontinence (UUI) and urgency-frequency (UF) were implanted in the RELAX-OAB study at seven centers in the Netherlands, France, Belgium and the UK. All subjects have reached their primary endpoint.
The results presented included outcomes at three and six months post-implant and provided significant evidence that the Axonics r-SNM system is safe and efficacious. Over one quarter of the subjects had previously failed Botox or posterior tibial nerve stimulation. The median age of the cohort was 52 years and consisted of 75% females. At baseline, subjects averaged 14.3 voids per day and 9.6 urinary incontinence episodes (leaks) per day. All subjects were implanted with an Axonics miniaturized rechargeable neurostimulator and did not undergo an external test stimulation typically used to screen patients. At one month, 71% of all implanted subjects were initial responders to therapy defined as a 50% or greater reduction in incontinence or UF symptoms, or for UF subjects, a return to normal equal to eight or less voids per day.
Data at six months post-implant demonstrated:
- 94% of initial responders continued to respond to therapy
- 85% of UUI subjects experienced a 50% or greater reduction in leaks per day
- 81% of UF subjects experienced a 50% or greater reduction in voids per day or a reduction to less than eight voids per day
- Initial responders reported clinically meaningful improvements in quality of life, underscored by significant improvements from baseline in the ICIQ-OABqol HRQL score of 26.2 points (+/- 4.1, SE, n=33)
- All subjects but one could successfully charge their neurostimulator within the first month following implant
- There were no serious adverse device effects or unanticipated adverse device effects reported
“All the RELAX-OAB subjects have reached the six-month post-implant time point and as expected, the Axonics r-SNM system is delivering safe and clinically significant symptom relief to patients,” said Raymond W. Cohen, Chief Executive Officer of Axonics. “The next major step for Axonics is to get our US pivotal study underway. To that end, we have over 12 centers in North America and Western Europe poised to treat patients immediately following FDA clearance of our pending IDE.”
During 2016, the Axonics r-SNM system gained regulatory approval in Europe and Canada for the treatment of overactive bladder, urinary retention, and fecal incontinence.

OTEZLA® (Apremilast) Phase III Data Showed Significant Improvements in Patients with Active Behçet’s Disease with Oral Ulcers18.2.2018 00:00 | Tiedote
Celgene Corporation (NASDAQ:CELG) today announced that data from the phase III RELIEF™ clinical trial of OTEZLA® (apremilast) in patients with active Behçet’s Disease with oral ulcers were presented in a late-breaking oral presentation at the 2018 American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) Annual Meeting. The results showed statistically significant reductions in oral ulcers with apremilast 30 mg twice daily (BID) versus placebo through week 12. OTEZLA (apremilast) is Celgene’s oral selective inhibitor of phosphodiesterase 4 (PDE4). Behçet’s Disease is a rare, chronic, multi-system inflammatory syndrome. Oral ulcers, the most common manifestation of Behçet’s Disease, can be disabling and have a substantial effect on quality of life. This study primarily evaluated the effect of apremilast on recurring oral ulcers in patients with active Behçet’s Disease who were previously treated with at least one topical or systemic medication. “Reducing oral ulcers, which are painful and can negatively im
CT-P13 (biosimilar infliximab) is comparable to reference infliximab and adalimumab in highly anticipated real-world study17.2.2018 11:00 | Tiedote
Twelve-month data from the Personalised Anti-TNF therapy in Crohn’s disease Study (PANTS) was presented at the 13th Congress of the European Crohn’s and Colitis Organisation (ECCO). The results indicate that the clinical effectiveness, safety and immunogenicity of Celltrion Healthcare’s CT-P13 (biosimilar infliximab) in patients with Crohn’s disease (CD) is comparable to those treated with reference infliximab as well as those treated with adalimumab.1 The UK-wide, three-year prospective observational study investigated primary non-response (PNR), loss of response (LOR) and adverse drug reactions (ADR) to infliximab (reference infliximab and CT-P13) and adalimumab in 1610 CD patients. The data show comparable efficacy between CT-P13, reference infliximab and adalimumab in relation to PNR, LOR and ADR rates. In addition, at week 54, the remission rate was 39.7%, 39.0% and 32.7% for reference infliximab, CT-P13 and adalimumab treated patients, respectively.1 The PANTS study investigates
