United Kingdom National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) Publishes Interventional Procedure Guidance (IPG) for ReActiv8® Restorative Neurostimulation™

Share

Mainstay Medical Holdings plc announced today that the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE), a public body of the Department of Health that carries out evidence-based health technology assessments by independent committees, has issued a recommendation that ReActiv8® Restorative Neurostimulation™ can be used in the National Health Service in the U.K., with special arrangements for clinical governance, consent, and audit or research. ReActiv8 is currently the only technology offering restorative neurostimulation to the NHS for refractory mechanical chronic low back pain (CLBP).

“U.K. physicians have some of the most extensive experience with ReActiv8 globally. We are thankful to NICE for recognizing this experience, as well as the substantial body of global evidence we have developed in support of the efficacy and safety of this ground-breaking therapy, “ said Jason Hannon, CEO of Mainstay Medical. “This new guidance will enable patients to have greater access to the therapy when previous treatment options have not proven successful. We look forward to supporting physicians across the U.K. going forward and to continued improvement in patient outcomes.”

“Historically, mechanical CLBP pain therapies were aimed at only managing the symptoms, which is the pain associated with this pathology,” said Dr. Ganesan Baranidharan, Consultant in Anaesthesia and Pain Medicine, Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust. “ReActiv8 is the only therapy available I am aware of where patients with many years of CLBP actually reverse and effectively rehabilitate their condition durably over a long period of time. ReActiv8 targets the cause of mechanical CLBP, not just the symptoms. The new NICE guidance is a major victory for patients and clinicians, which further confirms the positive patient outcomes we have seen to date. This new guidance will allow more patients to gain access to ReActiv8 within the U.K. and further afield.”

Timed to World AIDS Day, Sermo, a physician-first online community and leader in global HCP insights, released a new survey that found 46% of general care physicians including PCPs, OB-GYNs, and pediatric physicians, reported they feel they do not have enough knowledge about currently approved PrEP medication options to prescribe them to patients. Whereas 98% of infectious disease specialists reported they felt they have enough knowledge about PrEP medications signaling a need for further education from industry stakeholders for noninfectious disease specialists.
