Nyxoah announces the publication of first positive clinical data in an OSA patient suffering from Complete Concentric Collapse (CCC)
Mont-Saint-Guibert, Belgium – 3rd March 2021 – Nyxoah SA (Euronext: NYXH) (“Nyxoah” or the “Company”), a health-technology company focused on the development and commercialization of innovative solutions and services to treat Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA), today announces the publication of an article presenting the first case of successful treatment of an OSA patient suffering from Complete Concentric Collapse (CCC) with Nyxoah’s unique Genio® bilateral neurostimulation solution1.
Patients suffering from Complete Concentric Collapse (CCC) currently amount for at least 30% of the existing OSA patient population. For now, these patients are contra-indicated for existing Hypoglossal Nerve Stimulation OSA therapies. Nyxoah is currently conducting the BETTER SLEEP study, that aims to assess the effectiveness of the Genio® system bilateral hypoglossal nerve stimulation for Complete Concentric Collapse (CCC) patients and to build clinical evidence for a potential therapeutic indication expansion.
Dr. Richard Lewis, leading author of this publication and Principal Investigator of the BETTER SLEEP study commented: “This case demonstrates successful control of obstructive sleep apnea in a patient with Complete Concentric Collapse (CCC) of the redropalatal airway. Whilst the final results of the Better Sleep trial are yet to be completed, the results so far in the CCC patients indicate that the Genio® system could potentially be a treatment for OSA patients with CCC who are intolerant of CPAP.”
Olivier Taelman, Chief Executive Officer of Nyxoah, added: “I would like to thank Dr. Lewis and the Perth team for getting this manuscript published, since this is the first and promising step towards offering hypoglossal nerve stimulation to a cohort of OSA patients who are currently excluded from such therapy. We will be announcing the full results of our BETTER SLEEP study in May 2021.”
