LOUGHBOROUGH, England–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Nemaura Medical Inc. (OTC BB: NMRD),(“Nemaura” orthe
“Company”)
, a medical device company developing a minimally
invasive, needle-free, wireless CGM (Continuous Glucose Monitoring)
patch known as sugarBEAT®, today announced that it has signed a letter
of intent (LOI) with a Chinese Corporation, Shenzen CAS Health
Corporation Limited, which is a partially owned subsidiary of the
Chinese Academy of Science.
The letter of intent covers three potential joint venture arrangements
relating specifically to sugarBEAT® including (a) setting up a joint
venture company to distribute in China, (b) setting up a manufacturing
facility in China and (c) obtaining CFDA approval. Nemaura Medical
recognises the size and importance of the Chinese market. As a result,
the Company has prioritized obtaining CFDA regulatory approvals as the
next step in fulfilling a primary objective under the LOI.
Nemaura Medical anticipates a sugarBEAT® product launch in Europe in
2017, where it has previously obtained CE approval. In the US, Nemaura
Medical has had discussions with the FDA and anticipates completing its
clinical program and submitting a PMA application around mid 2017.
SugarBEAT® differs from existing CGM’s given it comprises an adhesive
daily-disposable skin-patch which does not require insertion of a
needle-like sensor inside the skin. SugarBEAT® also provides users with
tremendous flexibility as to when and how often they choose to wear the
patch. Both of these factors are expected to empower users in a way
current CGM’s cannot.
About Nemaura Medical, Inc.
Nemaura Medical is developing the sugarBEAT® System as a
minimally-invasive, needle-free, wireless, continuous glucose monitoring
system for use as an adjunct device for blood glucose monitoring.
Further opportunity may exist for use of the device in intensive care
hospital settings, where continuous glucose monitoring is critical.
