SPR Therapeutics Announces Completion of Enrollment in the RESET Clinical Trial of the SPRINT® PNS System for Low Back Pain

- RESET is the largest prospective, multicenter randomized controlled trial of SPRINT PNS conducted to date -

CLEVELAND, Dec. 12, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SPR Therapeutics, Inc. today announced the final patient was enrolled in the RESET Clinical Trial of SPRINT® PNS for the treatment of chronic low back pain (LBP). This large multicenter randomized controlled trial (RCT) compares percutaneous peripheral nerve stimulation (PNS) with standard interventional treatments of chronic LBP.

The “RESET Clinical Trial: A Randomized, Controlled, Multicenter Trial of Percutaneous Peripheral Nerve Stimulation (PNS) for the Treatment of Back Pain” is a large RCT being conducted at more than 20 clinical centers across the United States. Eligible patients are randomized to receive either SPRINT PNS or standard pain management interventions for their chronic LBP. The primary endpoint of the study is a comparison of the proportion of patients in each group experiencing clinical improvements in back pain three months after treatment. The study will collect pain and other patient-reported quality of life outcomes through 24 months post-treatment.

We are thrilled to announce the completion of enrollment in this important study, which is the largest randomized controlled trial to date studying the SPRINT PNS System. This trial is designed to provide additional robust safety and efficacy data on the use of minimally-invasive, percutaneous PNS targeting the lumbar medial branch nerves for chronic back pain, building upon the large body of evidence that already exists supporting the use of SPRINT PNS for a variety of chronic and acute pain conditions,” said Josh Boggs, PhD, Chief Scientific Officer of SPR Therapeutics. “Our team would like to express our sincere gratitude to the study investigators, their dedicated research staff, and the patients who are participating in this study. We look forward to sharing the results with the interventional pain management community,” added Boggs.

Maria Bennett, President, CEO and Founder of SPR Therapeutics noted, “Chronic low back pain remains a tremendous challenge for millions of Americans and is one of the most frequent causes of work-related disability, time out of work, and avoidance of everyday activities. The RESET trial is a significant step forward in advancing a treatment option designed to address the needs of patients that face ongoing pain, limitations to their personal lives, and indirect challenges and costs that come with chronic pain.”

About the SPRINT PNS System

The SPRINT® PNS System, by SPR® Therapeutics, marks an innovative shift in the treatment of pain. Our breakthrough, 60-day treatment is a First-Line PNS option uniquely proposed to recondition the central nervous system to provide significant and sustained relief from chronic pain — without a permanent implant, nerve destruction or the risk of addiction. The system has been studied extensively for low back pain, shoulder pain, post-amputation pain, and chronic and acute post-operative pain, is cleared for use up to 60 days, and is recognized by leading pain management centers. Market research indicates that this breakthrough neuromodulation treatment is a patient-preferred alternative to more invasive options.

The SPRINT PNS System is indicated for up to 60 days for: Symptomatic relief of chronic, intractable pain, post-surgical and post-traumatic acute pain; symptomatic relief of post-traumatic pain; symptomatic relief of post-operative pain. The SPRINT PNS System is not intended to be placed in the region innervated by the cranial and facial nerves.

Physicians should use their best judgment when deciding when to use the SPRINT PNS System. For more information see the SPRINT PNS System IFU. Most common adverse events are skin irritation and erythema. Results may vary. Rx only.
