LimFlow Raises €27 Million ($33.5 Million) in Series C Financing Led by Sofinnova Partners to Advance Innovative Critical Limb Ischemia (CLI) Treatment

Del

LimFlow SA, developer of innovative, peripheral endovascular technology transforming the treatment of critical limb ischemia (CLI), today announced it has secured €27 million ($33.5 million) in an oversubscribed Series C financing. The round was led by Sofinnova Partners, with continued participation from existing round B investors Bpifrance, the French sovereign investment bank, and Balestier, a Singaporean family fund. Gérard Hascöet, Venture Partner at Sofinnova Partners, and Dr. Kinam Hong, Partner of the Sofinnova Crossover I Fund, will join the company’s board of directors. The investment is the first for the newly raised Sofinnova Crossover I Fund.

Proceeds from the Series C financing will fund the company’s major strategic initiatives through the second half of 2020, including completion of a U.S. pivotal trial for the LimFlow Percutaneous Deep Vein Arterialization System (pDVA), which will be submitted to the FDA as part of the approval process, and execution of its international commercialization strategy.

Based in Paris, LimFlow was founded in late 2012 by Dr. Martin Rothman, a world-renowned interventional cardiologist, and MD Start, a European Incubator dedicated to healthcare. The company’s proprietary and CE marked technology is a novel and purely percutaneous therapy for “no-option” CLI patients when all other revascularization efforts have been exhausted and a patient is facing a major amputation.

In the past 18 months, the company has achieved a number of key milestones, including CE Mark and acceptance into the FDA Breakthrough Devices Program. Enrollment is also currently underway in both a U.S. feasibility study of the LimFlow technology (PROMISE I) and an international post-market study (PROMISE International).

“We are gratified with the support we have received from Sofinnova Partners, a leading European venture capital firm and one of the most respected and specialized global Life Sciences investors. We are equally appreciative of the continued strong commitment from our existing investors. The new funds will enable us to continue our mission to save patients from amputation, and ultimately, save lives that might otherwise be lost,” said LimFlow CEO Dan Rose.

“LimFlow is an excellent fit for our healthcare Crossover I fund, where we seek investments in companies with game-changing technologies that address important clinical unmet needs and are led by experienced and passionate management teams,” said Dr. Hong.

CAUTION: The LimFlow technology is approved for investigational use only in the United States. The LimFlow System received the CE Mark in October 2016 and is currently available commercially in Europe. The LimFlow System has not been approved for sale in the USA, Canada, or Japan.

Head Position During Sleep Has Potential Implications for Neurodegenerative Disease19.2.2019 14:00:00Pressemelding

Could sleeping on your back increase your brain's risk of developing neurodegenerative disease? That possibility is revealed in a new study published in the Journal of Alzheimer's Disease. "We compared the in-home sleep patterns of patients with memory impairment resulting from neurodegenerative diseases to a large group of elderly with normal cognition," stated Daniel J. Levendowski, the study's first author and President of Advanced Brain Monitoring. "Sleeping more than 2 hours with one's head lying face upward (i.e., supine) was a significant nocturnal marker that characterized those with memory impairment, after controlling for factors such as age, sex, snoring, obstructive sleep apnea, and movements during the night." These results corroborate in humans a finding observed in rats by researchers at Stony Brook University and published in the Journal of Neuroscience. Using dynamic contrast MRI, they found that the clearance of neurotoxic proteins from the brain by glymphatic transpo
