Promising Results: Transcutaneous Vagus nerve stimulation for therapy resistant epilepsies

Post  Admin on Sat Jun 18, 2011 6:30 am

Transcutaneous Vagus nerve stimulation for therapy resistant epilepsies

The pilot study into treating therapy resistant epilepsies using NEMOS® confirms the initial, positive, intermediate results from June 2010. NEMOS®, from cerbomed GmbH, is the first device worldwide for transcutaneous Vagus Nerve Stimulation (t-VNS®). The study produced positive indications for safety, tolerability and effectiveness, along with verifying the high user-friendliness of t-VNS®.

A decrease in the frequency and duration of hard to treat epileptic incidences was achieved for 5 of 7 patients using t-VNS®. The director of the clinical trial, Professor Dr. Stefan, explains: "Altogether, t-VNS® can be judged as a safe and compatible method for long-term application. As such, it represents a possible therapy alternative for patients with hard to treat epilepsies."

"The result of the pilot study is another important milestone for our company. It motivates us to carry out a worldwide, multi-center study for t-VNS® therapy from the middle of the year, and lays the foundation stone for a successful market launch," says Prof. Dr. Jens Ellrich, Chief Medical Officer at cerbomed.
