Orqis receives FDA approval to expand clinical trial of Cancion CRS therapy to 40 centers

Orqis Medical Corp. today announced that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has approved an expansion of the Cancion CRSTM clinical trial from eight to 40 medical centers nationwide, accelerating the trial's recruitment and enrollment efforts.

The Cancion CRS therapy is a percutaneous cardiac recovery system being studied for its ability to create a "rest-to-recovery" environment for congestive heart failure (CHF) patients.

"This puts us yet another step closer to our goal of documenting the value that the Cancion therapy can bring to patients with heart failure."

Heart failure is the deterioration of the heart's ability to pump blood throughout the body and adequately perfuse the major organs. According to the AHA, some five million Americans have heart failure and an additional 550,000 are diagnosed annually. The single most expensive diagnosis in the U.S. health care system, acutely decompensated heart failure, represents 1 million primary and 2.5 million secondary hospital admissions annually.
