LivaNova to Present Autonomic Regulation Therapy Findings for Heart Failure During European Society of Cardiology Congress 2019
LivaNova PLC (NASDAQ:LIVN), a market-leading medical technology and innovation company, today announced it will present two abstracts further establishing the viability of implantable neuromodulation technology to treat patients with heart failure during the European Society of Cardiology (ESC) Congress 2019 from August 31 to September 4 in Paris.
Autonomic Regulation Therapy (ART) is a novel approach to treating heart failure, and the LivaNova VITARIA® System delivers ART using Vagus Nerve Stimulation (VNS) in patients who experience symptoms of heart failure despite receiving guideline-directed medical therapy. VITARIA is currently being used to study the effects of ART in a prospective, international, randomized, controlled clinical trial (ANTHEM-HFrEF Pivotal Study).
“At LivaNova, we’re advancing therapies that have meaningful impact, and the ANTHEM-HFrEF study is evaluating how our VITARIA System could improve care for patients with chronic heart failure,” said Edward Andrle, LivaNova General Manager of Neuromodulation. “We are encouraged by the results from our pilot study and the potential impact of this therapeutic innovation.”
The VITARIA System received CE Mark approval in 2015 and has been granted Expedited Access Pathway as a breakthrough technology by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). If approved by FDA, it could be the first in its class for treating chronic heart failure.
“Despite major advances, chronic heart failure is a growing challenge, and this breakthrough study may reveal a potentially life-transforming alternative to the current treatment landscape,” said Dr. Marvin Konstam, Chief Investigator of the ANTHEM-HFrEF Pivotal Study and Chief Physician Executive of the CardioVascular Center at Tufts Medical Center in Boston. “Chronic heart failure often leads to continued deterioration in patients despite using guideline-directed medical therapy. Patients and clinicians need new therapeutic approaches to treat this critical disease condition.”
Two posters, one comparing the clinical efficacy associated with different VNS technology platforms and delivery methods, and one reporting the long-term performance of the LivaNova VNS lead, will be presented during the Scientific and Education Sessions of ESC Congress 2019 on Monday, September 2 and Tuesday, September 3.
Posters are on display from 8:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. with presenters available from 10:05 – 10:55 a.m. GMT in the poster area:
Monday, September 2: “Vagus Nerve Stimulation for Chronic Heart Failure: Differences in Therapy Delivery and Clinical Efficacy in ANTHEM-HF, INOVATE-HF, and NECTAR-HF”

Ipsen to Present New Data at 13th Annual Conference of the International Liver Cancer Association (ILCA 2019)20.9.2019 16:30:00 CEST | Press release
Regulatory News: Ipsen (Euronext: IPN; ADR: IPSEY) today presents results from the matching-adjusted indirect comparison (MAIC) of cabozantinib (Cabometyx®) versus regorafenib (Stivarga®) for the second-line treatment (2L) of patients with advanced hepatocellular carcinoma (aHCC) who received sorafenib as the only prior systemic therapy. Using data from the Phase III CELESTIAL and RESORCE trials, the MAIC showed that cabozantinib offers greater efficacy versus regorafenib. Using data from the Phase III CELESTIAL and RESORCE trials, the MAIC showed that in the 2L CELESTIAL sub-population who had received sorafenib as the only prior systemic therapy, cabozantinib significantly improved progression-free survival (PFS), with an additional 2.4 months provided vs. regorafenib (5.6 months vs. 3.2 months [95% confidence interval (CI): 4.90-7.26], p<0.05). Median overall survival (OS) was also favorable with cabozantinib (11.4 months vs. 10.8 months), though statistical significance was not met
