FDA 510(k) Application Withdrawn for Angiodroid CO2 Injector for Angiography
NORTHVALE, N.J., Nov. 20, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- ADM Tronics Unlimited, Inc. (OTCQB: ADMT) has announced that Angiodroid America, Inc. has withdrawn its Premarket Notification 510(k) application filed with the US Food and Drug Administration ("FDA") for Angiodroid The CO2 Injector for Angiography (the "Angiodroid Injector"). The Angiodroid Injector is the first automatic injector for peripheral angiography using carbon dioxide gas (CO2), eliminating both the pathologies associated with iodine contrast medium that often is not tolerated by diabetic or nephropathy patients, and the risks and pain associated with the manual injection of CO2.
The decision to withdraw the 510(k) was unrelated to the Angiodroid Injector device but due to CO2 gas itself having not been previously approved by the FDA for this use. Angiodroid America is now reviewing what would be required for CO2 gas to be approved for this use. Angiodroid The CO2 Injector is already approved for sale by the European Regulatory Authorities and has been introduced in Europe, Middle East and Asian markets.
