A Breakthrough Emerges: Recor Medical and Otsuka Medical Devices Secure FDA Panel’s Favor for Paradisiacal Hypertension Solution
PALO ALTO, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE): Brace yourselves for a medical milestone as Recor Medical, Inc. (known as “Recor”) and its visionary parent, Otsuka Medical Devices Co., Ltd. (“Otsuka Medical Devices”), unveil a momentous achievement. The stage was set at the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Circulatory Systems Devices Panel of the Medical Devices Advisory Committee, where a pivotal discussion unfolded around the Paradise™ Ultrasound Renal Denervation (RDN) system. This futuristic marvel promises to recalibrate the landscape of hypertension treatment, and the outcome was nothing short of astounding.
Imagine a resounding chorus of 12 to 0 – a unanimous vote in favor of the Paradise Ultrasound RDN system’s safety. The excitement didn’t stop there. A dynamic score of 8 to 3 in favor of efficacy, with a single vote abstaining, signaled that a revolution was on the horizon. But that wasn’t all – a stunning 10 to 2 vote resonated with the belief that the Paradise system’s benefits eclipsed any potential risks.
Should the FDA’s seal of approval be granted, a new era beckons. The Paradise Ultrasound RDN system could potentially become the inaugural FDA-approved renal denervation device in the U.S., dedicated to steering patients away from the clutches of uncontrolled hypertension.
“Hypertension’s menacing grip on cardiovascular health demands a bold response. Despite our best efforts, blood pressure control remains elusive,” remarked the distinguished Dr. Ajay Kirtane, Professor of Medicine at Columbia University. As co-primary investigator in the RADIANCE Global Program exploring the Paradise system’s potential, he expressed his satisfaction at the committee’s recognition of the device’s prowess in lowering blood pressure. Through the RADIANCE Global Program, science and innovation unite to pave the way for a brighter future.
Lara Barghout, President and Chief Executive Officer of Recor Medical, echoed the sentiments of gratitude. “To the FDA and advisory committee members, your thorough assessment is deeply appreciated. We’re driven by a shared purpose – to alleviate uncontrolled hypertension’s burden,” she exclaimed. With their sights set on anticipated PMA approval, the Paradise Ultrasound RDN system stands ready to script a new chapter in healthcare.
The heart of this groundbreaking narrative? Three clinical trials housed within the RADIANCE Global Program, each a testament to progress. More than 500 patients stepped forward, seeking relief from mild-to-moderate or resistant uncontrolled hypertension. The Paradise Ultrasound RDN system isn’t just a device; it’s a promise of transformation.
Hold your breath for the final twist – the Paradise Ultrasound RDN system proudly carries the CE mark for hypertension treatment. As it blazes a trail across continents, its quest for approval continues in the United States and Japan. The future of hypertension treatment is unfolding, and the Paradise system is leading the way.
