AMX0035 is an investigational co-formulation of sodium phenylbutyrate (PB) and taurursodiol (TURSO). PB is a prescription drug use to treat urea cycle disorders and TURSO (also known as tauroursodeoxycholic acid [TUDCA]) is a widely available non-prescription supplement. AMX0035 is proposed for the treatment of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS).
Emerging Technology Reports
The Emerging Technology Report provides regular updates about emerging and potentially disruptive technologies that are likely to have a significant impact in healthcare. This “early warning” report monitors new health technologies from 6 months to 2 years within a regulatory submission and tracks those as they go through clinical trial development and the regulatory approval process.
For each emerging technology, our analysts describe the technology and intended use, its prospects relative to the regulatory process and FDA information, competing technologies, relevant clinical guidelines, high-level look at the evidence such as published abstracts in the medical literature and available meeting abstracts, and available clinical trials.
The HistoSonics System is an ultrasound histotripsy system intended for noninvasive mechanical destruction of malignant cells via acoustic cavitation. It is under investigation for the treatment of primary or metastatic hepatocellular tumors.
Lecanemab (BAN2401) is an investigational, intravenously administered anti-amyloid beta (Aβ) protofibril antibody proposed for the treatment of early Alzheimer disease.
The OCS Heart is a portable extracorporeal heart perfusion and monitoring system indicated for the preservation of donation-after-brain-death (DBD) donor hearts deemed unsuitable for procurement and transplantation at initial evaluation due to limitations of prolonged cold static cardioplegic preservation (e.g., > 4 hours of cross-clamp time); and for the ex vivo reanimation,…
The VenoValve is a porcine bioprosthetic venous valve under investigation for permanent implantation into the femoral vein for the treatment of deep vein reflux in chronic venous insufficiency.
The BlueLeaf Endovenous Valve Formation (EVF) System is an endovascular device intended to form autogenous tissue leaflets from femoral and popliteal vein walls that mimic a functional valve. It is under investigation for the treatment of deep vein reflux in chronic venous insufficiency.
Mavacamten (Camzyos) is an oral cardiac myosin inhibitor indicated for the treatment of adults with symptomatic New York Heart Association (NYHA) class II-III obstructive hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) to improve functional capacity and symptoms.
Narsoplimab is an investigational, intravenous monoclonal antibody targeting mannan-binding lectin-associated serine protease-2 (MASP-2) for the treatment of hematopoietic stem cell transplant-associated thrombotic microangiopathy (HSCT-TMA).
The Agili-C is an aragonite scaffold implant indicated for the treatment of an International Cartilage Repair Society grade III or above knee-joint surface lesion(s), with a total treatable area of 1-7cm2, without severe osteoarthritis (Kellgren-Lawrence grade 0-3).
Zavegepant is an intranasal novel small-molecule, calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) receptor antagonist (“gepant”) drug proposed for the acute treatment of migraine headache. CGRP is involved in vasodilation and sensory transmission and is a validated target for the treatment of migraine headache.
