Sanuwave Health Reports 2010 Financial Results
Sanuwave Health Inc (Alpharetta, GA) has reported the financial results for the year ended on December 31, 2010 in addition to reviewing the year’s accomplishments and progress. The company completed its dermaPACE® pivotal Phase III clinical trial to treat diabetic foot ulcers (DFU) and reported safety and efficacy results during the fourth quarter. The company also submitted the first of three modules of their Premarket Approval (PMA) application to the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), which included preclinical data and the results of prior clinical testing. By completing this rigorous Phase III clinical trial and immediately initiating their modular PMA submission process, the company has surpassed a key milestone for transforming the brand from a development stage entity in to a commercial company. As demonstrated by the notable results from the DFU clinical trial, the product has the potential to help a large number of patients who suffer through the physical and emotional distress of debilitating foot ulcers. Pending FDA approval, the company looks forward to bringing the product to medical professionals and patients alike, while aiming to make a significant impact on wound healing and quality of life.
