Management to Host VenoValve Webcast and Conference Call on July 25, 2019 at 11:00 am Eastern Time
IRVINE, CA / ACCESSWIRE / July 19, 2019 / Hancock Jaffe Laboratories, Inc. (Nasdaq: HJLI, HJLIW), a developer of medical devices that restore cardiac and vascular health, announced today that on Thursday, July 25, 2019, Dr. Jorge Hernando Ulloa, Principal Investigator for HJLI’s first-in-man VenoValve study in Bogota, Colombia, will present new 90 day VenoValve data at the Second Annual Society of Vascular and Endovascular Surgery Congress of Central America and the Caribbean. The conference is taking place July 25 to July 27 in the Dominican Republic.
In conjunction with Dr. Ulloa's presentation, on July 25, 2019, at 11:00 am Eastern time, Dr. Marc H. Glickman, Hancock Jaffe's Senior Vice President and Chief Medical Officer, and Mr. Robert A. Berman, Hancock Jaffe's Chief Executive Officer, will host a webcast and conference call to present select slides from Dr. Ulloa's presentation and to answer any shareholder questions about the VenoValve. Following the conference call, the slides from the presentation will be available on the HJLI investor relations website.
Robert Berman, Hancock Jaffe’s Chief Executive Officer stated, "When we began the first-in-man Bogota study, we indicated that important inflection points to properly assess the functionality and impact of the VenoValves would be at 90 days and 180 days post VenoValve surgeries. On the same day that Dr. Ulloa is presenting the 90 day VenoValve data to the vascular community, Dr. Glickman and I will present Dr. Ulloa's slides to the investor community and provide an opportunity for questions in an open format."
HJLI's first-in-man Colombian study will initially include up to ten patients who suffer from severe, chronic venous insufficiency (CVI) of the deep vein system. CVI is a condition that occurs when the valves in the veins of the leg are injured or destroyed, causing blood to flow backwards. The backwards flow of blood is known as reflux and leads to the pooling of blood in the lower leg and increased venous pressure (venous hypertension) in the veins of the leg. Severe deep venous CVI often results in debilitating pain, swelling, and open sores (venous ulcers).
Endpoints for HJLI's first-in-man study include measurements for reflux, the clinical manifestations of the disease graded by the clinician (a Venous Clinical Severity Score or VCSS score), and pain via VAS scoring which is a widely used pain measurement in clinical research.
HJLI expects to use the data from its first-in-man Bogota study as part of its Investigational Device Exemption ("IDE") application to be submitted to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration ("FDA") in order to begin the U.S. pivotal trial for the VenoValve. HJLI expects to file the IDE application in early 2020.
Approximately 2.4 million people in the U.S. suffer from CVI due to reflux in the deep venous system. HJLI estimates that the potential U.S. addressable market for the VenoValve to be approximately $14 Billion. In the U.S., patients with venous ulcers from CVI spend an average of approximately $30,000 per year on wound care, resulting in annual direct medical costs exceeding $30 Billion. There are currently no FDA approved devices for the treatment of deep venous CVI.
The meeting of the Society of Vascular and Endovascular Surgery of Central America and the Caribbean is being hosted by the Society of Vascular and Endovascular Surgery of the Dominican Republic, in Santo Domingo. The conference focuses on the most recent technological advances in vascular and endovascular surgery and is aimed at specialists in vascular and cardiovascular medicine, as well as dermatologists, radiologists, vascular sonographers, nephrologists, cardiologists and family doctors.
