Medgenics’ EPODURE Biopumps aim to provide a cost-effective way to maintain hemoglobin within a target physiological range for anemic patients through the sustained delivery of EPO, while avoiding the extreme elevations seen with injections. Medgenics believes that this steady delivery could improve the safety and efficacy of anemia treatments while enhancing patient quality of life by providing a more reliable treatment that reduces or eliminates the need for frequent EPO or ESA injections, and also provides significant cost benefits to payers.“We believe that this Phase IIa study will provide valuable insight into the use of EPODURE to treat anemia in patients on dialysis, which is the largest segment of the anemia market. Although the findings presented at Kidney Week 2012 are on only three patients, we are thus far encouraged by this ongoing study. Full study results can be supportive of the larger Phase II study in dialysis patients in the U.S., now slated to begin in the first half of 2013. Once completed, we believe these studies will provide data to support the use of EPODURE in the treatment of anemia from chronic kidney disease,” stated Andrew L. Pearlman, Ph.D., President and Chief Executive Officer of Medgenics.
