News We’re Watching: Medtronic To Buy EOFLow, Neuralink Cleared For Human Trials, NICE Backs Genetic Tests
This week, Medtronic said it would pay $738m for insulin patch firm EOFlow; Neuralink got an FDA OK for first-in-human trials; and UK agency NICE backed genetic tests for stroke patients and digital therapeutics for mental health conditions.
This week, we learned that the US FDA thinks Elon Musk’s Neuralink brain interface device isn’t ready for human trials. Additionally, J&J cut about 300 medtech jobs, Stryker launched a knee implant, and Active Implants’ meniscus replacement device made it to the FDA’s advisory panel calendar.
SVB health care advisor Jonathan Norris anticipates more consolidation in devices ahead with many mid-cap public companies looking to acquire innovative technologies to grow, and pushing the “big guys to have to figure out how to move faster.”
Synchron has high hopes that after successfully implanting the first minimally invasive neural brain-computer interface device in a human, it will eventually be able to give a "voice" to patients, including paralyzed individuals, who are unable to communicate. The company is conducting clinical trials and is hoping to use the data to apply for US FDA approval of the Stentrode device.
