NeurAxis Highlights Pediatric Post-Concussion Clinical Study

CARMEL, Ind., Aug. 29, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — NeurAxis, Inc. (“NeurAxis,” or the “Company”) (NYSE American: NRXS), a medical technology company commercializing neuromodulation therapies that address chronic and debilitating conditions in children and adults, today highlighted A Prospective Study on the Effect of Auricular Percutaneous Electrical Nerve Field Stimulation (PENFS™) in Patients with Post-Concussion Syndrome (PCS), a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial to evaluate the efficacy of IB-Stim™ in children with post-concussion symptoms.

Brian Carrico, President and Chief Executive Officer of NeurAxis, said, “We are thrilled to support this research because if the data is positive and the FDA gives clearance, this would be a groundbreaking therapeutic option for post-concussion syndrome. According to literature, the majority of concussions occur in children, mainly due to sports and unstructured play with or without helmets. While symptoms generally resolve in a few weeks, others persist, including ongoing headaches, nausea, and dizziness, as well as mood and behavioral disorders. Medications are primarily used for off-label in the treatment, despite the lack of evidence to support efficacy or safety.”

“We support the ongoing pediatric post-concussion clinical research and it reinforces our commitment to evidence-based research to drive adoption for our PENFS™ technology, a minimally invasive device alternative, to meet the needs of this $2 billion market. We look forward to working with the FDA to continue expanding pediatric indications on our PENFS™ technology, currently FDA cleared for functional abdominal pain with IBS in adolescents, to also potentially include post-concussion syndrome in children,” concluded Mr. Carrico.

Currently enrolling up to 100 patients, the clinical trial’s primary endpoint is improvements in validated measures, including the Immediate Post-Concussion Assessment, Post-Concussion Symptom Scale, and Balance Error Scoring Symptom compared to placebo. The trial is being conducted at Children’s Hospital of Orange County, CA.
