Shineco, Inc. Subsidiary Receives Prior Approval Supplement from the NMPA Jiangsu Bureau for the Marketing Approval of “Cardiac 5-Minute Test”
BEIJING, Dec. 19, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Shineco, Inc. (“Shineco” or the “Company”; NASDAQ: SISI), a producer and distributor of Chinese herbal medicines, organic agricultural and other biotech products, announced that the Company’s controlled affiliate Changzhou Biowin Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd. (“CBP”) has received the Prior Approval Supplement from the Jiangsu Medical Products Administration (“NMPA Jiangsu Bureau”) for the marketing approval of “Cardiac 5-minute Test.” This product is a combo test of three major cardiac markers and can detect cardiac troponin I (“cTnI”), myoglobin and fatty acid binding protein (“FABP”) for the clinical diagnosis of acute myocardial infarction (“AMI”) in one test. We believe it is a breakthrough of the clinical diagnosis of AMI and takes only 5 minutes to complete detection.
Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death in the world, especially for those over 50 years old. About half of the deaths are associated with AMI related causes. The time from onset to diagnosis of AMI is an important factor affecting prognosis. If diagnosed and treated timely, the mortality rate can be reduced to less than 2%, but if not, the mortality rate can exceed 10%. Therefore, the US and International AMI guideline requires clinicians to complete diagnosis within 10 minutes of arrival. However, current lab tests cannot meet this demand and need over 20 minutes upon arrival to obtain the test result. We believe that if approved, this Cardiac 5-minute Test has the potential to be one of the leading products in this field to meet the demand of obtaining the test result in less than 10 minutes upon arrival, provide an effective tool to improve the prognosis of acute myocardial infarction, and become a leading rapid test product for the diagnosis of acute myocardial infarction in the global myocardial infarction rapid test market of over US$3.5 billion.
“We are very glad to receive the first review report from the Chinese FDA Bureau for our application of the marketing approval of the Cardiac 5-minute Test. This is a very important milestone for our product to be on the market in China soon, and we are expecting to receive the final marketing approval in China within three months,” said Dr. Marvin Liu, CEO of CBP and the inventor of this technology, “Our 5-minute test is not only rapid, but also accurate, easy to use, and portable. In addition, it can be used as a point-of-care testing (POCT) product as well. The POCT market in China, Europe, the United States and other countries has expanded rapidly and maintained a high growth rate in recent years. This high clinical demand, combined with our technological breakthrough for the rapid diagnosis of acute myocardial infarction, will allow us to develop a strong competitive advantage in target markets of China as well as other countries in the world.”
