BRISBANE, Australia & EGAN, Minn.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Anteris Technologies Ltd (Anteris or the Company) (ASX: AVR), a structural heart company developing DurAVR™, the world’s only balloon-expandable, 3D single-piece native shaped aortic valve, announced today the presentation of clinical data from its first-in-human (FIH) trial for DurAVR™ at the annual meeting of the Transcatheter Cardiovascular Therapeutics (TCT) medical conference to be held in Boston September 16-19, 2022.
The FIH study commenced in November 2021 and thus far, has treated 13 patients with symptomatically severe aortic stenosis (AS). The study will continue to enroll patients through 2022 and details of FIH can be found at ClinicalTrials.gov (Identifier: NCT05182307). The primary and key secondary endpoints of this trial include device feasibility assessments such as success of implantation at the anatomically accurate position, and hemodynamic performance assessments including effective orifice area (EOA), mean gradient, aortic regurgitation, paravalvular leak (PVL) and Doppler Velocity Index (DVI). Patient outcomes such as stroke, myocardial infarction, life-threatening bleeds, and all-cause mortality are to be reported at 30 days and 1-year post implantation.
“DurAVR™ represents a transformational product, and we are excited to showcase its first clinical study at one of the most prestigious interventional cardiology congresses,” commented Dr. Chris Meduri, Chief Medical officer of Anteris and a practicing interventional cardiologist at the Karolinska University Hospital, Stockholm. “We have previously demonstrated that all Anteris tissue (including the FDA approved product CardioCel®) made from our patented ADAPT® technology, have zero-DNA, zero-glutaraldehyde and are hence ultradurable in the long-term because they remain calcification- free in 10-year longitudinal follow-ups. This will allow DurAVR™ to be a true lifetime treatment for patients with AS. The FIH data produced to date now demonstrate the immediate hemodynamic benefits of Anteris’ 3D single-piece native shaped aortic valve delivering a larger EOA, excellent laminar flow, and improved exercise capacity. By combining immediate and long-term benefits, DurAVR™ is perfectly suited for today’s younger, more active patients,” commented Wayne Paterson, Chief Executive Officer of Anteris Technologies.
