Medical Device Industry Landscape In Asia-Pacific

GlobalData's APAC Medical Devices Industry Landscape – 2022 free study breaks down the APAC medical devices market by segment and region and includes insights on local and global competitors, pipeline product developments, clinical trials studies, and significant deals in the industry. The APAC medical device industry witnessed significant developments, launches, implementations, and adoption of new medical device technologies in the past decade, however the high cost of devices, regulatory hurdles, reimbursement pressure, and healthcare budget constraints have challenged market expansion across various territories and segments. APAC is the fastest growing regional market for medical device clinical trials, with China and Japan emerging as major clinical trial hotspots. The growth in medical device clinical trials in the APAC region is attributed to an increase in research partnerships between biopharma companies and clinical research organizations (CROs). This report also provides an in-depth analysis of the medical device market's opportunities and challenges, the influence of COVID-19 on the market, and government activities aimed to develop the APAC medical device market.

The funding round included new investors Soleus Capital Management and Longitude Capital, as well as an undisclosed strategic investor.

LimFlow’s existing major shareholders, Sofinnova Partners, Bpifrance and Balestier, also participated in the round.

The LimFlow System has been developed for the treatment of chronic limb-threatening ischemia (CLTI), a severe form of peripheral artery disease (PAD).

It is designed to bypass blocked arteries in the leg and provide oxygenated blood to the foot through veins.

The device uses a minimally invasive family of transcatheter products to potentially avoid major amputation, resolve pain and promote wound healing.

LimFlow intends to use the funding to pass the PROMISE II pivotal trial, which is required to obtain approval from the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

Recently, the company completed subject enrolment in the trial, which will be conducted in the US.

It has also completed enrolling participants in the natural history CLariTI study of high-risk and no-option CLTI patients.

LimFlow CEO Dan Rose said: “We are thankful for the support of so many industry-leading investors, both new and existing, who recognise the potential of the LimFlow System to address a major clinical need in saving patients from amputation.

“We look forward to sharing results from our pivotal trial later this year, and to the prospect of being able to make the LimFlow system commercially available as early as next year to the patients in the US and Europe who desperately need it.”

The company stated that it also included the second-generation of LimFlow System into its clinical programme last year and announced positive data from its PROMISE I feasibility trial.

In 2019, LimFlow received approval from the FDA for an investigational device exemption (IDE) pivotal study of its Percutaneous Deep Vein Arterialization (pDVA) System.
