Completion of the novel epidural continuous glucose monitoring study confirms its potential for providing simplified disease management for patients with painful diabetic neuropathy

Rutherford, NJ, June 13, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Glucotrack, Inc. (Nasdaq: GCTK) (“Glucotrack” or the “Company”), a medical device company focused on the design, development, and commercialization of novel technologies for people with diabetes, today announced that its implantable continuous glucose monitor has successfully completed a 60-day long-term preclinical study demonstrating the feasibility of glucose monitoring in the epidural space.

The Glucotrack sensor, implanted in the epidural space of animals, closely tracked glucose values from both a commercially available blood glucose monitor and a subcutaneous continuous glucose monitor (CGM) throughout the 60-day period. No abnormal clinical signs were observed throughout the study period, and no abnormal findings were observed in the spinal cord or surrounding tissues during post-explant analysis. The study also confirmed that the implanted sensor did not cause any delayed latent effects over the long-term period, which is particularly important as a complete healing process in animal studies with implanted devices may take several weeks.

“With the successful completion of this long-term study, we are confident in the performance of our epidural sensor, and we are excited to be an innovator in epidural glucose monitoring. We are now exploring opportunities for continued development and application of our novel technology to benefit people living with diabetes,” said Paul V. Goode, PhD, CEO of Glucotrack.

Glucotrack previously announced interim performance and safety results from this long-term animal study assessing sustained epidural glucose monitoring performance. With the completion of this study, the durability of the epidural approach for continuous glucose monitoring has now been confirmed over the 60-day period.

PDN is a progressive neurological disorder that affects approximately one-fifth of the more than 38 million Americans with diabetes, equating to more than 7 million individuals.1,2 The Company believes that, if approved, a continuous glucose monitoring system that takes readings in the epidural space may be integrated with existing treatments for these patients, simplifying their device and disease management.
