CVR Medical Corp. announced that it will have its upcoming “Carotid Stenotic Scan (CSS)” device showcased by its manufacturing and strategic partner Canon Virginia, Inc. (CVI), a wholly owned subsidiary of Canon USA, at this week’s Medical Design & Manufacturing West (MD&M) in Anaheim, CA. CVR Medical's CSS is a novel device that uses patented sound wave analysis technology to detect and measure carotid arterial stenosis.

MD&M West is recognized as the main and most comprehensive yearly medical technology and manufacturing expo and conference in North America (https://mdmwest.mddionline.com). From February 5-7, 2019, over 19,000 members of the global medical care and manufacturing community will gather at MD&M West to learn about and exhibit the latest in cutting-edge advancements.

 CVR has partnered with CVI for the manufacturing, supply chain management, logistics, white glove delivery to end user, telephone tech support, and on-site service for the CSS; providing key advantages when CVR scales to meet potential global demand.

With Canon as a recognized leader in imaging technology, CVR gains invaluable exposure and credibility within the industry. Canon’s showcase of the CSS highlights the unique, customized manufacturing of the device, as well as logistics and product support needs. The manufacturing partnership between CVR Medical and Canon, announced in 2017, established the production means through which the CSS will be launched.

CVR Medical Corp.: Announces Completion of FDA Submission for CSS Device (CVM-TSX; CRRVF-OTCQB)

Posted by Karen Goldfarb

January 7, 2019 at 8:55 AM

CVR Medical Corp. announced today that it has completed a Food and Drug Administration De Novo Submission for its “Carotid Stenotic Scan (CSS)” device.  A De Novo Submission allows for a company to receive a “not substantially equivalent” risk-based evaluation for any legally marketed device for which there is no prior, comparable classification. 

The Company's CSS, which is a novel device that uses patented sound wave analysis technology to detect and measure carotid arterial stenosis, fits within the criteria of this FDA filing. Due to U.S. government shutdown, the submission will be reviewed by the FDA upon resumption of government activity.
 
CVR's FDA submission marks the culmination of the Company's many years of product development, design, trials, and organizational preparation, and is necessary for any new device entering the market.

CVR Medical Corp.: Company Update (CVM-TSX; CRRVF-OTCQB)

Restructuring Approved by Shareholders

CVR Medical Corp. recently announced that its Board of Directors held a Special Meeting of the Shareholders to approve, among other things, the Restructuring of the Agreement between CVR Medical Corp. and CVR Global Inc. CVR Medical Shareholders approved the restructuring as well as all other items put forth for a vote.

This restructured agreement calls for the companies to terminate and relinquish the previously agreed upon 50%/50% profit sharing structure in exchange for 30 million shares of CVR Medical Corp. stock and additional royalties associated with the commercialization and future sales of the Company's Carotid Stenotic Scan (CSS) as pictured here —a device which uses low frequency sound wave analysis to non-invasively detect and measure carotid arterial stenosis (narrowing of the blood vessels in the neck that carries blood from the heart to the brain) or occlusion (blockage)—which is the leading risk factor for stroke. As well, the current and future Intellectual Property portfolio pertaining to the CSS will now reside within CVR Medical. The agreement is subject to and will require TSX.V approval, which CVR Medical expects to be forthcoming.

With the approved transaction, CVR Global Inc. is expected to move into a milestone-driven equity-based contractor and, upon achieving the milestones stated below, could become one of the Company’s largest shareholders. These milestones include the:

  • Approval and signing of agreement (3 million shares)
  • FDA submission (2 million shares)
  • FDA clearance/approval (10 million shares)
  • Achievement of $50 million in sales from CSS Device Sales (15 million shares)—contingent on a maximum 36-month time frame from initial CSS sale

CVR Global is further expected to be granted a 7% royalty on all CSS device sales, with a 3% royalty on all associated disposable sales. With this transaction, roles are now clearly defined along with the pathway to the CSS market launch.

Announces Proposed Financing

In other recent news, CVR Medical announced that it intends to complete a non-brokered private placement financing of units for gross proceeds of up to C$2 million with a price per Unit of C$0.30 or such other price determined by CVR Medical management in compliance with TSX Venture Exchange pricing regulations.

Each Unit is to consist of one common share and one common share purchase warrant, with each Warrant exercisable to acquire one additional Share at a price of C$0.36 per Warrant Share for a period of five years following the closing date of the Financing. The Warrants will be subject to an acceleration right if on any ten consecutive trading days, beginning on the date that is four months and one day following the Closing Date, the daily closing price of the Shares on the Exchange is at or greater than C$0.50. If the Company exercises its Warrant Acceleration Right, the new expiry date of the Warrants will be the 30th day following the date on which such notice is given by the Company. The Company expects to pay finder’s fees of up to 6% in cash and 6% in finder’s warrants in connection with the Financing.

Proceeds are expected to be used for ongoing working capital requirements related to the development and commercialization of the Company’s CSS Device. Completion of the Financing is subject to Exchange acceptance and all securities issued pursuant to the Financing will be subject to a hold period of four months as required under applicable securities legislation.

Positive Interim Results Reported From Ongoing Pivotal Trial With CSS Device

The Company further announced advisory staff member Dr. Phillip J. Bendick, PhD, has released an internal report summarizing data from the pivotal clinical trials for the CSS devices in use at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital. In alignment with the previous report released by Dr. Bendick in September 2017, this preliminary report views the initial batch of data points collected within the trial as successful for the substantiation of the device’s value and efficacy.

With the trial ongoing (thus only a partial snapshot of the data), the improvements made to the CSS prior to launch of the pivotal clinical trials has generated enhanced functionality within the clinical setting. The CSS Device is being evaluated in a multi-center pivotal clinical trial to evaluate the system’s specificity and sensitivity for detecting carotid artery disease, compared to the current gold standard – duplex Doppler ultrasound. According to Dr. Bendick, “The early results of the first 144 patients enrolled in the CSS pivotal trial have shown excellent overall accuracy […] these initial results demonstrate the efficacy of the CSS as a tool to detect and guide the appropriate management of clinically important carotid artery disease in order to reduce stroke risk.”
