    NinePoint Medical is featuring the NvisionVLE ® Imaging System with Real-time Targeting™ at ACG 2017; Eight Scientific Abstracts to be Presented

    NinePoint Medical, Inc., a transformative medical device company pioneering the use of an advanced imaging platform for gastrointestinal applications, today announced that new clinical data relating to its proprietary NvisionVLE ® Imaging System with Real-time Targeting™ will be presented at two upcoming major conferences. Seven clinical abstracts will be featured at the World Congress of Gastroenterology @ the ACG 2017 conference taking place October 13-18 in Orlando, FL, and one poster session will be presented at the United European Gastroenterology Week (UEGW) conference, which will be held from October 28 – November 1 in Barcelona, Spain.

    “We are delighted to see so much scientific data using the NvisionVLE Imaging System being presented at these two outstanding conferences”, commented Christopher R. von Jako, Ph.D., President and CEO of NinePoint Medical. “The increasing body of clinical data combined with the positive procedure economics have propelled us to over 10,000 VLE procedures being performed during our short time on the market. We sincerely appreciate, and congratulate the physicians that have contributed to the clinical data being presented at ACG and UEGW 2017”.

    About Esophageal Disease

    Esophageal adenocarcinoma (EAC) is the fastest growing cancer in the western world, increasing in incidence more than 7-fold over the past several decades. 2 Barrett’s esophagus, a complication of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), affects more than 12 million American adults, 3 and is associated with a 30-fold increased risk of developing EAC. 4

    About the NvisionVLE ® Imaging System

    The NvisionVLE Imaging System provides a unique and clinically valuable new perspective of esophageal disease: The ability to image within the wall of the esophagus. By providing a high-resolution, real-time scan of the esophagus using Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) – a technology similar to ultrasound but using infrared light rather than sound waves - the system enables physicians to perform a Volumetric Laser Endomicroscopy (VLE) procedure and view structures not evident with conventional imaging, and potentially identify disease that would have otherwise been missed. With the recent addition of a Real-time Targeting feature, physicians can not only locate, but now mark areas of interest. This marking feature, in combination with an improved workflow, enables more accurate targeting, potentially leading to improved diagnosis and more effective therapeutic decisions for patients. Since the NvisionVLE® Imaging System has been cleared by the FDA, approximately 10,000 VLE procedures have been performed in the U.S.
