Atlantic Therapeutics Announces FDA Clearance for Over-the-Counter Use of INNOVO®
Atlantic Therapeutics, a global medical device manufacturer, today announced that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has granted over-the-counter (OTC) clearance to INNOVO® , a non-invasive, clinically proven and wearable device for the treatment of stress urinary incontinence (SUI) in adult females.
This approval represents a major milestone that will be a key value driver for Atlantic Therapeutics. This achievement as well as the previous funding rounds position the company to enter its next phase of growth, driven by geographic expansion within the U.S., accelerated sales in other geographies, further development of its existing product portfolio and expansion into new clinical applications.
INNOVO® is the first transcutaneous electrical stimulation continence device to be cleared by the FDA, following positive results from two clinical trials. The clinical trials demonstrated that 80%1 of INNOVO® users experienced significant improvements after four weeks and 87%2 were considered “dry” or “near dry” after three months.
“With INNOVO® now approved for over-the-counter use in the U.S., women suffering from urinary incontinence, a common but stigmatized condition, have easy access to this convenient, effective and safe product, which is backed by science,” said Steve Atkinson, Chief Executive Officer of Atlantic Therapeutics. “No longer requiring a prescription for INNOVO® means women can take back control of their personal health in the safest and most convenient way possible with this effective at-home treatment. They no longer need to suffer in silence and make do with temporary fixes, such as pads, to manage their condition.”
“We are encouraged by the over-the-counter clearance of INNOVO® and believe it unlocks substantial value for Atlantic Therapeutics,” said Anne Portwich, Partner at LSP and investor in Atlantic Therapeutics. “This is an exciting time to be supporting the global expansion and growth of Atlantic Therapeutics.”
An estimated one third of all U.S. females are affected by SUI3 , representing a significant market opportunity for INNOVO®. INNOVO® has an excellent safety record to date, with over 3.5 million therapy sessions delivered by INNOVO® worldwide with no reported device related complications. INNOVO ® can be purchased without a prescription at www.myinnovo.com starting February 6, 2020.
