InspireMD Announces Abstract of One-Year Follow-Up Results from the C-GUARDIANS U.S. Investigational Device Exemption (IDE) Clinical Trial Accepted for Presentation at LINC 2024


TEL AVIV, Israel and MIAMI, March 26, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- InspireMD, Inc. (Nasdaq: NSPR), developer of the CGuard™ Embolic Prevention Stent System (EPS) for the prevention of stroke, today announced that an abstract of the one-year outcomes from its C-GUARDIANS IDE clinical trial of the CGuard™ Prime Carotid Stent System for the treatment of carotid artery stenosis has been accepted for presentation at the Leipzig Interventional Course (LINC) 2024, which is being held May 28-31, in Leipzig, Germany.

Presentation details:

Title:One-Year Follow-Up Results from the C-GUARDIANS Pivotal Trial of the CGuard™ Carotid Stent System
Presenter: Chris Metzger, M.D., System Vascular Chief at Ohio Health, and lead investigator of the C-Guardians trial
Date/time:To be announced

Marvin Slosman, chief executive officer of InspireMD, stated, “At last year’s VIVA and VEITH conferences in November, Dr. Metzger, principal investigator for the C-GUARDIANS trial, presented positive 30-day follow-up data from the trial which demonstrated a DSMI1 rate of just 0.95% in the Intent-To-Treat (ITT) analysis population, and 0.63% in the per-protocol (PP) analysis population. We are very excited to announce today that an abstract of the 12-month outcomes data from this important trial has been accepted for presentation at the upcoming LINC 2024 conference, which is among the most influential and widely attended meetings focused on vascular intervention. We are optimistic that the results will show a similar level of neuroprotection, which may support a Premarket Approval Application (PMA) later this year and allow us to prepare for a commercial launch of CGuard Prime in the U.S. in the first half of 2025, if approved.”

About C-GUARDIANSThe C-GUARDIANS clinical trial evaluated the safety and efficacy of the CGuard™ Carotid Stent System for the treatment of carotid artery stenosis. The study enrolled 316 patients across 24 trial sites in the U.S. and Europe.

The trial included both symptomatic and asymptomatic patients undergoing carotid artery stenting (CAS). The primary endpoint includes the composite of the following: incidence of the following major adverse events: death (all‐ cause mortality), all stroke, or myocardial infarction (DSMI) through 30‐days post‐index procedure, based on the Clinical Events Committee (CEC) adjudication or ipsilateral stroke from 31‐365-day follow‐up, based on CEC adjudication. The performance goal will be considered to have been met if the upper bound of the two-sided 95% confidence interval calculated from the observed primary endpoint rate is
