The Advisory Panel convened by the FDA voted unanimously, by 10 votes to 0, that
the XPS™ System with STEEN Solution™ meets the requirements for HDE
(Humanitarian Device Exemption) approval. XVIVO Perfusion will initiate a
dialogue with the FDA in the near future to discuss labelling and the post
An Advisory Panel meeting was held yesterday, Thursday, March 20, 2014, in
Maryland, USA, at which the Advisory Panel discussed XVIVO Perfusion’s HDE
application for the XPS™ System with STEEN Solution™. The Advisory Panel
primarily discussed the clinical data accumulated in the NOVEL study. The NOVEL
study is steered by a protocol including XPS™ and STEEN Solution™. After an
eight-hour meeting the Advisory Panel voted unanimously that the XPS™ System
with STEEN Solution™ meets the requirements for HDE approval.
The Advisory Panel was convened by the FDA and its role is to give advice and a
recommendation to the FDA with regard to regulatory questions. The decision on
market approval is taken by the FDA. If the HDE approval is granted, XVIVO
Perfusion can market STEEN Solution™, XPS™ and the accompanying single-use items
in the USA. The NOVEL study with STEEN Solution™ and XPS™ will continue to
recruit patients and the results from the study will form the basis of a PMA
(Pre-Market Approval) application.
"We are very pleased that the Advisory Panel voted unanimously that STEEN
Solution™ and XPS™ meet the requirements for HDE approval. We will now
immediately initiate a dialogue with the FDA to discuss the final steps in the
application process," says Dr Magnus Nilsson, CEO of XVIVO Perfusion.
